    HiBy R5 Gen 2 - Class A headamp, Dual ES9219C, 35h playtime, MQA 16x, open Android

    The problem is that isn't not just a DAC but it's like connecting a computer to another computer. It's like you were to connect your phone to your computer and use the DAC inside the phone having a continuous connection to the computer, the phone and the DAC inside the phone. The interfacing...

    HiBy R5 Gen 2 - Class A headamp, Dual ES9219C, 35h playtime, MQA 16x, open Android

    That would be truly weird, balanced is pretty much guaranteed 2x OI from single ended, dual amps for balanced.. unless it has a really unique topology but in a device of this price class..?

    Holo Audio May DAC Speculation

    Kitsune and Wildism have decent/good customer support though. Magna hifi eu probably does too.

    Can you explain a bit, this iteration has single ended output and newest one does not?

    Comment by 'Baten' on listing 'FS: Sennheiser HD650 (KISS Mod / HD650K)'

    You can undo all the dampening no prob. The only difficult part is foam around the baffle cage, I don't think it you can put it back easily; would be a royal pain.. I don't recommend reversing the mod though, in any case. The effect is really subtle, anyway.

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    It is no secret the DSD signal is converted to a traditional format on Chord DACs. So the EQ happens in that intermediate.

    DENAFRIPS 'ARES' R2R discrete ladder DAC - close up view

    What? That is news to me, I've owned holo spring 1/2. When measuring the digital filter in NOS it measures perfectly normal/expected so not sure what you mean.. high frequency data scrambling ??

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    In theory there really should not be such a change in frequency response between M1 and M2 that you could EQ one to the other. That would be shocking. A DAC should still output flat....

    S.M.S.L SU-9 DAC has dropped at SHENZHENAUDIO store timely, with ES9038PRO chip and MQA supported

    The D70s is one ultra smooth DAC if that's what you look for. Not ultra high resolving but ultra smooth. The Gustard X16 is one of the best sounding sabre DACs imo but I have never heard SU-9, might be close. Get a Topping D70s, used or new if you find it.
  14. FS: 2x Audioquest Jitterbug

    Selling two Audioquest Jitterbug. Have bunch of these at home but due to resizing/downsizing listening set-up I have no use for these two. I always use them in front of USB connecting gear, which is what I recommend them for. Even the review at ASR showed some improvement at upper ends of the...
  15. FS: Sennheiser HD650 (KISS Mod / HD650K)

    For sale, my personal HD650 in good condition that was modded following the popular KISS mod (google HD650 KISS mod) which extends the bass response just a bit which is very much appreciated on the HD6-- line of Sennheisers. Included: Sennheiser HD650 box(bit worn but otherwise fine)...

You can find EQ based for these specific measurements of this specific IEM here. You are buying an IEM that has been used for measuring and some hours of...

    Holo Audio May DAC Speculation

    There are quality op-amps in the output stage here and there just like in Spring 2/3.. they are part of the DAC analogue stage though, maybe he meant the May pre-amp is "fully discrete"?

    New Release & Colorado Tour | X1s GT DAC with headphone amplifier, the 8th gen and the milestone of the classic aune X1 series

    Thanks for the explanation Aune. I think my unit is defect, I have a big sound changing sample rate even on filter 1/2. I will send it back to Amazon. When I could listen, I liked the sound. But the big pop noise definitely seems like it should not be there!

    New Release & Colorado Tour | X1s GT DAC with headphone amplifier, the 8th gen and the milestone of the classic aune X1 series

    Hey Aune I am losing data lock using USB, I'm not using filter mode 3 / 4. Any advice? Have not seen other users mention it so maybe mine is not working as it should.
