    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    Hey man! I just wanted to give some input on the Vioelectric stuff. They are heavier in the bass and drown out vocals more than any other amp ive owned. I sold in favor of the Liquid Platinum. If you like heavier bass in your sound you can go for it, but i felt like it took a lot away from the...

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    So, with some more troubleshooting with Jussi, turns out the Ultrarendu is limiting my ability to do anything higher than dsd512 and 768kHz. So hooked the Spring 2 directly to my PC and still had no luck! So, he had me put it into a usb 3.0 port and it worked. Guess it just needed some more...

    Singxer SU-1 Owners

    The Singxer def sounds off to me, but im not sure if its just how it is, or apart of the technical issues i seem to be having. And yes, 384 kHz works fine for me too. Its anything above that PCM rate that i start having problems. Have you had any luck above that sampling rate? What DAC are you...

    Singxer SU-1 Owners

    Hey all! Just wanted to check if anyone using the SU-2 was using hqplayer also. Im having a problem with my SU-2 and Spring 2 R2R DAC. Through hqplayer, I cant play any PCM above 384kHz. The audio just comes out super distorted and static. Also, in DSD the audio channels seem as if they are...

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    Thank you! I sent Tim an email to see what he has to say about it. Its frustrating when things dont work how they're supposed to but hopefully I can get it figured out. I bought it specifically so i could do 768 kHz through hqplayer and i2s.

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    hey im using the Su-2 KTE. Its the newest one. Says in i2s it supports all sampling rates ( 768kHz, DSD 1024) Not sure what to do about the switches on the bottom. On the su6 do you have them setup a certain way?

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    Hey all! I know many of you are using a Singxer product fed with hdmi to the spring 2. For those of you who are doing that and using HQPlayer, I have a question! Whenever I set HQPlayer to output PCM, I get an insanely distorted sound and screeching and shrilling noise from my music played...

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    Does anyone have an explanation of the different settings on the DAC? in regard to NOS, OS, OS PCM, DSD, etc. Like if I have it set to NOS and then oversample in Roon, what is happening exactly with the NOS setting in the DAC? And if i switch it to OS mode, but im oversampling through ROON, what...

    Which Output Schiit Modi 3 Have?

    Hey! So if you have powered speakers you wont have/need a preamp. The powered speakers have a DAC and Amplifier built in to the chassis of the speaker. My guess is youre trying to have some form of volume control that is physical/analog instead of digital. Look to get something like the...

    DAC advise needed, upgradeitis is setting in!

    Cd player recommendation

    Cambridge Audio CXC. Really awesome CD Player. Doesnt have built in DAC, so youll need an external but it really kick ass man. If you want a built in DAC, i can reccomend the Marantz Cd6006. I cant recc spending more than $500 USD on a cdplayer. Ive heard CD players costing thousands. I wouldnt...

    What should I choose between an mp3 player and the kz zsn pro and the kz s1 alone

    Why are these both your options? Whats your budget? Is it worth fixing the headphone jack? How important is quality sound? Wireless wont be as good as an equally comparable wired alternate. But getting a DAP / mp3 player opens up a whole other can of worms that can get in depth pretty quick...

    Ultrasone upgrade

    Hey! I owned the 580 and 780 Ultrasones about a decade back. Trust me when i tell you theres a lot of good and better options that wont break the bank. If youre an EDM junkie youll want the EMU Teak. I know you like the Ultrasones, but the EMU Teak is certainly the best EDM headphone. Its...

    Dac/Soundcard/else? What to pick.

    Itll be best to get external gear. since you seem to be having problems with noise in your computer, you should get an external DAC and an AMP. Get something simple like the Schiit Heressy for under $150 USD. Its a DAC and headphone amp in one. I promise youll be content with it! Cheers, Jonathan
