    DAC that supports Subwoofer Pre-out

    Yeah it’s complicated, so basically I’m trying to run a software crossover using equalizer apo in windows. I’m already using equalizer apo to implement room eq wizard. If I wanted to apply a software hi pass crossover as well I need to separate the sub from the speakers in windows. So far the...

    I have it and i couldn't hear a difference. Any perceived sound difference is so small you would have to do an A-B comparison i would think, unfortunately i don't have a second device to do this.

    haha fair enough, the best thing about the 400i's is they take to EQ really well. If you have the option to run Equalizer APO in windows they sound very similiar to HD800's with a more intimate soundstage, or so im told. I run equalizer APO with peace interface and it breathed new life into...

    yes for sure but as long as you get a warrenty you are covered,. You can always buy used as any issues would pop up by than i would assume. I've used the crap out of mine and have not had any issues at all other than the cheap pads and the stock cables which suck. Not really anything else to go...

    A portable amp for the 400i/Sundara? Or a desktop? I run the desktop Little dot i+ for the 400i's and i love it, i cant recommend it enough for the price. Im using the Sanskrit S10 also a nice piece of equipment for the money, it also has the AK4493 DAC vs the AK4495 in the DX120 so pretty much...

    Have you considered the Hifiman sundara? I have the 400is which were considered by some as an upgrade from the sennheiser 600 series. The sundara should even be better than the 400is. I have the 400is and I feel they pair really well out of the balanced output, they are a funny pair though as...

    i would go with the DX120 personally to drive your headphones, since it had more power. It will drive your 600's but i think a little more power yet still would be more ideal. You may be better off with a small standalone DAC and separate headphone amp if you are not looking for a portable unit...

    That's hard to say, technically two DAC's in the FIIO are superior since there are two but it depends on how they are implemented. They will sound different most likely, i feel that FIIO has some great hardware but they just stuff it in there without taking the time to actually implement as best...

    Are the Meze 99 classics any good?

    Hmm im open to anything really, im not in a rush but it something i can waffle back and forth about before i pull the trigger. I just have a funny feeling my NAD's about to kick the bucket due to the mods i've done to make them wearable. I had to twist the ear cups to break the little plastic...

    Are the Meze 99 classics any good?

    Midbass primarily? Or sub bass? I read about a pad swap aswel, not sure if it’s worth doing.

    Are the Meze 99 classics any good?

    I seem to have an issue with headphones that have excessive midbass, I’m looking for a pair of headphones that are more comfortable than my NAD HP50s which seem to do everything else right. The bass is about right, I suppose I can live a little more but excessive midbass is a deal breaker for...

    Gotcha, I can’t bring myself to spend that which will be make very little if any perceivable difference...i really like the AK chip in it. The DX120 sounds pretty good already, so much so I bought a Sanskrit with a AK4495 dac in it for my desktop setup. The DX300 is too much, I would sooner put...

    Recommended Upgrade from HP50

    Does anyone have any ideas of an upgrade from the HP50's that are similar in sonic signature, soundstage and imaging? My head is too small for the HP50's apparently since they dont touch the touch of my head, i've been using foam in between the headband and my head. I also had to stuff foam tape...
