    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    If you play a video or song and mute the volume, you may be able to see what I'm talking about.

    Nvm, still a problem.

    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    I switched back to my FiiO K1 for USB dac, because I get a slightly fuller sound with lower background noise, albeit, the K1 is less detailed than anything I bought in the future, but is just a nice immersive lush sound signature with big soundstage. I'm thinking about buying a USB hub, connect...

    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    This device has weird issues, I turn off bluetooth on my phone while connected via usb to my computer, then disconnect the usb cable from the ES100, and the device just bricks with a solid green light, frozen and couldn't reconnect to bluetooth on my phone until I plugged it back into my...

    Why has all the dac/amps I've listened to that uses an ESS chip have such a punchy high-end?

    Not saying it's a bad thing, I enjoy the little kick in the highs but sometimes the music can sound less reverby and "fun", it sort of narrows everything and makes the music sound more up close and stage-like, or like a speaker system in a car, or an old stereo, and can be a little...

    FiiO K3 • The Review Tour of FiiO K3 All-new Headphone Amplifier & USB-C DAC

    I returned it, didn't like the temperature even when my computer sleeps, and the sound quality for the type of headphones I have.

    Do you know a desktop solution that would help with streaming youtube?

    FiiO K3 • The Review Tour of FiiO K3 All-new Headphone Amplifier & USB-C DAC

    I selected 256, but I'm thinking of going lower since I have no problems with 256 either, and I'm running an i5, so I'm assuming I shouldn't have any issues going lower. Thank you for clarifying. Tbh, I'd probably choose this over the Dragonfly based on the features also, they sound similarly...

    What sounds close to an old AKM sigma-delta DAC, such as an AK4309AVM, AK4309B, AK4310AVM, ect, by today's standards?

    There's a certain charm about these old DACs from the 90s, they sound superb and are really detailed and clean sounding.

    I noticed an improvement in sound, the music became more spacious and airy where before the FiiO driver was installed it was so dull, recessed and a complete disappointment, I'm not sure why. If you install the driver you can use 32-bit setting and adjust buffer/latency settings as well as...

    This doesn't have loud pops but you can hear little snaps when the amp turns on/off, and it happens randomly sometimes. I changed the latency to 256 from 512 in the control panel which resolved the weird delay during playback.

    Welp, the driver was nice until it started giving me playback issues, random skipping like a scratched cd, especially in game music, or when something loads. I hope they fix this some time.

    FiiO K3 • The Review Tour of FiiO K3 All-new Headphone Amplifier & USB-C DAC

    Here's my opinion on the DAC so far: I'm quite unimpressed with the sound quality, such a flat dull boring unlively sound with little texture and details, and a limited soundstage, a step down from a $32 ES9023 DAC/amp I got, I was able to hear lyrics better, delicate parts in a song, like...

    Any kind of warmth triggers my OCD because solder joints. It does cool down after a while as with every amp that gets plugged in, it stays on the warmer side but doesn't get burning hot. Btw, does anyone know the benefits of having the separate driver besides DSD, like can I select 32-bit?

    Gets fairly warm too, I could imagine doing damage on high gain.
