  1. PurpleAngel replied to the thread Need Help: DAC, USB-SPDIF Converter, or something else to connect a computer to an old receiver?.

    Ok, 2.1 speaker setup. If you had a 5.1 speaker setup, then it might have been worth it to get a sound card with an optical output. But...

  2. PurpleAngel replied to the thread DT1990 sertup or DT880 setup.

    I'm fairly sure the Hifimediy (optical) DAC will be a better DAC function, then whatever is built into the PC's on-board audio. I'm...

    Hifimediy DAC, should not have to spend more then $70, or as little as $30, for a USB DAC....

  6. PurpleAngel replied to the thread virtual surround+amp+ad700x help.

    If you use the sound card's optical port (on-board or add-on sound card), to the DAC, the headphone surround sound will pass thru the...

    I'm guessing you have a feedback loop. Try using separate surge protectors. You could also trying using an optically connected DAC,...

    I noticed some people on Head-Fi always seem to compare headphone audio to cars?

  9. PurpleAngel replied to the thread Temporary dac solution for objective 2 headphone amp.

  10. PurpleAngel replied to the thread Open Backed Over Ear Headphones up to $650 (£500).

    I would assume the Amirons would be a good choice, but i would not play that price. Better value to find a used T90. Or buy one of those...

  11. PurpleAngel replied to the thread virtual surround+amp+ad700x help.

    The SB-Z card does come with a fairly good CS4398 DAC chip :) If you just bought a headphone amplifer, you would connect it to the...

  12. PurpleAngel replied to the thread Soundblaster g6 vs x7.

    Unless you know of a good reason for needing the Creative X7, like a need to hook up unpowered speakers, get the G6

    Better to Go Sound card > optical DAC > amp > headphones. The AD700X is fairly easy to drive. Nothing wrong with using a decented...

    Beyerdynamic T90 headphones.

  15. PurpleAngel replied to the thread virtual surround+amp+ad700x help.

    The AD700X wil work plugged directly into the SB-Z card's headphone jack, guessing it will give the AD700X a bump in the bass.
