    I've recentlty bougth them for office. All i wanted was a pair of fairly decent cans within the budget ive prepaired for this occasion. Unboxing was a surprise, in the package we get a nice pair of switchable cabels, one for "iPod" with a mic and volume control , and the regular straight one...

    best sounding 6922/e88cc tubes :D

    I can recommend Tesla e88cc with gold plated legs. I've found one in an old radio in my attic, tried it just for fun and it stayed for good.   Previosly i've been using some 12au7 and few ecc88. This one brings extremely detailed soundstage and vocals, it even bested my previously fav tube...

    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    About Audacious, the winamp interface isn't it's default UI, normaly it looks like deadbeef or gmusicbrowser with its GTK ui :)  Take it for a spin :) it's much more advanced than deadbeef.

    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    Heh, I guess You made it clear enough now :) I had no such problem with deadbeef, nor with xbmc.   About Deadbeef, the major con for me right now is the lack of support for plugins in 64 bit version, I mean we can compile them on our own but I've runed into the same problems You did. PPA...

    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    Hi again guys!   After nearly a year playing around with a different setups, it came out that the best sounding setup is one of the easiest ones. The only con is that it requires USB DAC accepting SPDIF signal (aka SPDIF over USB) works with most players (XBMC, Deadbeef). All You need is...

    I know im diggin this post from the grave but its actually rather hard subject, and a straight awnser is nowhere to be found.    I though i got some exotic hardware but it turned out linux had proper drivers by default in nearly any distro i tried. Any how Linux does great job with USB DAC's...
