    Schiit Bifrost 2 vs. Chord Qutest

    Topping D70s No Brainer! I believe one of the best DAC under 1500 usd… much cleaner than Qutest ( <1.3uVrms vs <2.6uVrms)

    Loxjie P20 Discussion- Starved for information on this thing!

    Thanks for this, if you do not mind, can you elaborate on what happened to the timbre of the sound after this heavily done mod? Like warmer or colder, stage size, the blackness of the background, space between instruments etc.

    Loxjie P20 Discussion- Starved for information on this thing!

    P20 uses NJR55320 whose Operating Voltage is up to +-20V (not more). Someone from another platform suggests any opamp more than 18V for a safety step. This is said to be cause Loxjie P20 has a few of variants. Depending the design, I suspect the supply rails changes (not sure at all!) BTW, The...

    Tor Audio Headphone Amps.

    Hi all, Just curious as to how tor-audio balance amp pairs with planar ( got Ether c flow). I noticed the amp was mentioned to have as doubled stuff as the unbalance siblings have. However, they provide the same power output. Have an idea about this?

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (1123 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    I have E1DA 9038sG3 with an amp phase and no Line-out option (aka DAC mode). I use it as a DAC to feed my tube amplifier. As It has a 2.5mm TRRS output and lacks grounding, I cannot benefit from it through any source with a connection to the earth like a computer in charge. Only what I use is my...

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (1123 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    Hello, I am just curious about someone here using W2 as DAC alone feeding an amp through a cable like 4.4mm to 2 XLRs.

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (1123 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    If we use an apple camera kit and an external battery bank, what would we see on the screen (still 3.76V or around 5V)?

    Loxjie P20 Discussion- Starved for information on this thing!

    Hello, I have got second times P20. I had purchased P20 off Amazon.uk. It was a red return product. I liked a lot its amazing wet, huge sound stage and warm sound signature. I somehow did not like red colour, and returned it one year ago. The last one came from AliExpress- China warehouse. I...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    I like so much listening heavy metal. 789 seems to be so analitically sounding, and missing drum kicks. Otherwise, i cannot judge it is superior to jazz, pop and other kind of genres, which do not have heavily drum sounds. Personally, still prefer to Loxjie P20 over 789 in heavy metal/metal...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    I use my EFC along with THX 789. I first notice a lack of body through all spectrum, and then weak bass/ drum sound. I still have stock cable; I wonder if Forza copper cable (one with AWG20 wires for extra bass response, link) will compensate for them.

    Sabaj D5: the DAC that is unquestionably a digital to analog converter

    The problem regarding this review is Zoes does not attempt to give an opinion on XLR outputs at the back. I believe the most satisfying part of this heavy black box is balanced outputs to amp, as the pair of 3pin outputs offers better SNR, THD and output impedance than 4-pin output does I had...

    Sabaj D5: the DAC that is unquestionably a digital to analog converter

    No distortion at all; but i noticed my highs gone half, due to the unmatched impedance. I can underline it is Still nice product ! Like i said, i am burning it in. I listen only for an hour in total and left it. The dap plays on its own for a while.
