    DT-880 (600 ohm) -> HE-400 - much of an upgrade?

    Looking to switch out my headphone and try the HE-400.  Would it be much of an upgrade going from the DT-880 to the HE-400.  Also, I don't want to keep too many phones, so not sure if I would sell the DT-880 or the Denon D2000 after I purchase the HE-400.  I hate Head-Fi, gives me too much...

    Best portable Amp/Dac with RCA output

    Trying to simplify my setup now.  Want a portable Amp/Dac for traveling with my laptop and then when I am at home, just output it to a desktop amp via RCA for bigger headphones.  Only two I know is the U-Dac2 and Ibasso D7.  D7 has a quality DAC chip, but I heard it is flaky with driver issue...

    Review: Fischer Audio FA-003 - a neutral champ!

    Great tip BloodyPenguin, I did this right after I read your post.  Digitech just sounds and looks cheesy, digtial + technology, lol.  Looks so much better completely OEM!

    Review: Fischer Audio FA-003 - a neutral champ!

    Just received my headphones today.  Great deal, but in Canada it is always ruin by taxes and duty.  Got charged $10 processing fee and $8 taxes, so grand total is $88.  I thought it was process when it was shipped!

    The IEM/Portable Headphones Deal Alerts Thread - Closed! Use the Deals Thread III instead.

    Sorry my bad, didn't know about that policy, was just upset that I paid $30 more earlier.  I will just take the hit and not purchase any from Futureshop to sell to anyone for $110.   Quote:

    How much does a new sound card really help?

    Using on a laptop now with a realtek HD soundcard.  If it does make a difference, I was gonna put the Xonar DG in my Desktop with a Intel 2500k chip.

    How much does a new sound card really help?

    Quick question since I saw this post.  I just recently got a PA2v2, would a Xonar DG be better for powering my headphone to its full potential then a PA2v2 or the same and I should just save my money for a better AMP or DAC/AMP.
