    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    I understand that the SCHIIT LOKI Tone controller goes between the DAC analogue output and the external preamp/amp analogue inputs. Is there any way to use this gadget with a CHORD DAVE/HMS set up? Since the preamp/amp is integral to the DAVE, am not sure how this could work without polluting...

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    So I guess the Loki works in the analogue domain just before feeding the DAC signal to the amplifier?

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    Can you explain in more detail what the Loki is? If I run the SR1a with the JOT-R amp and use the CHORD DAVE /HMS as my DAC /source how can I dial in more base via EQ. I don’t know how to do that with the DAVE.

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    Has anyone compared the TC or Susvara to the SR1a? I know it’s a different experience but can the SR1a really compete as a stand alone TOTL can for the non heavy metal types?

    Have you heard the JOT-R amp yet with the SR1a?? Impressions compared to likes of Bryston?

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    So you are saying that both the Benchmark amps have switched power supplies and therefore are not as good as other amps that do not use a switched power supply?

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    It’s interesting that the AHB2 and HPA4 are so close in price. Some say the HPA4 has more than enough headroom and dynamic push to drive either the TC or Susvara. Others seem to think the Susvara needs more power. I hope both will be at the Benchmark booth at tha NYC CanJam this weekend. On...

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    I finally got the YouTube app on the IBASSO DX 220 DAP device that I use as a portable music file transport via optical out and YES it it can output the audio stream and be up-scaled by my CHORD DAVE/HMS. The only problem is that lip synch is way off making watching the music video annoying...

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    Does anyone know if it is possible to listen to music videos on YouTube with optical out to an external DAC? If it is possible, then what file format is transmitted through optical? mp3? FLAC?
