    Teac Reference Line UD-501 USB DAC "DSD"

    I quite like the piece. I really wanted something that would work perfectly in Linux and play DoP. I compared this DAC to many other pieces that cost an order of magnitude more and found that I couldn't hear enough of a difference to justify continued search for now.

    Please help me with my survey (about storage)

    Currently around 4T. If anyone else is approaching the 1T size I would seriously recommend checking out beets:   Edit: That's 4T of music. It is mostly lossless and I've recently been converting SACDs over to DFF (now that mutagen has added support). I have a good...

    Circumaural travel headphones (Alternatives to the PXC450)

    I've been using PXC450 on and off for a long time, they are wonderful headphones. Recently I got one of the Geek Out 1000 and would really like to pair with a passive headphone system. I'm looking for something that can pack away like the PXC450, is circumaural and under the 500$ price point...

    Teac Reference Line UD-501 USB DAC "DSD"

    TEAC UD-501 on Fedora 19 with MPD 0.17.3 works perfectly.   Their usb implementation is quite nice and is UAC2 compliant.   I think it might have been the commit in kernel 3.10.7

    Teac Reference Line UD-501 USB DAC "DSD"

    My father has an MSB DAC IV and I was able to compare the UD-501 to it. I feel that although there is significant diminishing returns on something as costly as the DAC IV, there still is a difference that you have to decide overall if the financial cost is worth the perceived value.   I love...

    Beyerdynamic T70 or Sennheiser HD 650?

    I'll be interested to hear what people say once a good listen has occurred. I may buy some off Amazon to do a side by side.   For me, I carry PXC 450 for travel and office and I listen to the 650 when I'm in my home office. I would prefer to carry a single set of headphones, however I'm not...

    Detroit - Ann Arbor meet. Let's make it happen.

    I will come to the best of my ability. I would say that I will host but I would like to meet everyone once first then maybe next time. I have quite a bit of fun stuff at my house.

    How big of an improvement will AKG 702s be over HD 280 Pros?

    Quote: I would agree except for possibly some difficulty on the DAC design like gamma 1 or gamma 2, it will be difficult to troubleshoot if you run into trouble... troubleshooting is beyond basic soldering skills.   AMB has many good designs, I would recommend you contact TomB who...
