    Does anyone else experience background noise at around 90 volume? With or without IEMs.

    Yulong D200 32-bit 384KHz DSD DAC/Amp

    Selling my Yulong D200 DSD DAC/Amp in 9/10 condition, or possibly even 10/10 - topic prone to subjectivity. But in any case, there is not a single scratch on the unit, and it has been handled with utmost deliberate care throughout the couple of months that I've been using it.   Can send the...

    WTB: Darth Beyer

    As the title suggests I'm looking for a pair of Darth Beyers in good condition. Preferrably V3>V4>V6. Type of wood finish doesn't matter just as long as there aren't any serious blemishes on it.   Shipping within or to Europe. I stand for freight costs.   PM me with the version, condition...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    I'm not expecting it to mute the source, some ext volume controllers I've used before had no sound leakage when dial is turned to minimum. It's kind of annoying when you don't want to hear anything at all; makes it more convenient to use an external DAC/Amp.

    Lifatec Silflex Glass Toslink 10ft

    For sale in pristine condition. Receipt and warranty included.   Very sturdy toslink cable with metal coating - yet still very elastic, even more resilient that ordinary plastic IMO. Excellent for some environments where cables are often treaded on. I've had a bad luck with countless of cheap...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    But does any of you experience sound when external volume controller is on minimum volume (given that the soundcards/computer level is at 100%).

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Reinstalled latest drivers and got a clicking sound on start-up now (or maybe I didnt hear it properly before). Still issues with volume though.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

      It doesn't click on start-up. It does click when I switch between speaker and headphones   Rollbacking drivers did not working, going to return it tomorrow for a new one

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

      If that's the case I'll try a roll back in driver first and see if I notice any difference.   Last time I checked I didn't hear any clicking noise during start-up.

    Anyone with HD650 and Philips X1 w. good desktop rig?

    Quote:   I sold the HD650 because I bought the LCD-2 which I thought sounded much better. Then I made a budget cut, sold the LCD-2 and got the X1 instead and couldn't be any happier; for the price X1 is a real gem. I also find the X1 more comfortable for my head.

    REVIEW: Yulong Sabre A18 Reference headphone amp

    Quote: What headphones are you using? I had absolutely no background noise with my LCD-2 and HD650, apart from IEMs.

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Quote: IMO cables don't make that much difference anyway. Unless you're actually using, say, a true balanced system and running it through RCA only. You'd want XLR recabling in order to use the full potentials of the MK VI+ for instance, David wrote so himself in an email when I asked him...
