    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

    well since you mention how would one easily decipher the specs for an amp?  specs for heaphones?  for example Click here the only thing I understand on the tech specs aside from color, weight, etc. are freq. response, cable length, and connector.  What do the others mean?  or just link me to the...

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

    This helps plenty!  thank you for giving me so much info.  and as I read the issue of a Power supply with poor EMI shielding, correct me if I'm wrong the fix would be here.  I guess I'll keep researching, reading and asking.  I'm not looking for a solution necessarily but more of a best...

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

    I think If I was willing to go the Astro route (financially) I might be better off getting a high quality sound card, that 129 $ price for the Astro Amp only being decent isn't good in my opinion.  Especially considering both solutions are wired and I would use it at home anyway.

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

      I was actually gonna buy one of those cards! lol thanks.  Also, didn't know that about analog sound but the more info the merrier :D  and even though you mention that I know from people a quality DAC/Amp is the way to go.   Could any one recommend a DAC and Amp that is about wonderful...

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

    I get you, always nice to look back on things and I agree in most topics. The first generation of builders/adopters tend to know more than 2nd and 3rd, The need for that original knowledge becomes unnecessary for the masses.  But since I'm here learning and you just took your claim as Audio guru...

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

    coming from a PC background, that makes perfect sense!  and even more sense with Tomb's answer.     So the DAC stuff was crystal clear but aside from the technological limits of the time, why was 90 SNR the goal back then?  I assume simply because it was better than the turtables you...

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

    i did mean eternal/indpendent :D and that makes perfect sense!   also why can't music digitally be amplified? would that scramble the source too much?

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

      Essentially you're saying a sound card may or may not have Amp features but I'm assuming from my knowledge all these days have DAC features?  why is a DAC even necessary in 2015, heck even in 2010 lol?   ''amp comes in. By using the amp, you can satisfy your headphones' power demands and...

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

    I understand the mini flow chart and about sound cards potentially having amp+dac features depending on price range etc. but I've also read from the reviews about Amps giving better bass, sound stage, etc.  Those sound like sound processor/sound card features.  Could someone explain that?

    Amp vs. DAC vs. Sound Card: What's the difference?

    Hey, so I've been learning about all of these things lately.  Here is what I know.   Amp - takes source sound and gives it more power and processes sound DAC - Just converts digital to analog? Sound Card - Processes sound and sometimes can be both of the above?   I just want a solid...

    Surround in stereo

    That's a good question and I would think it's definitely software and maybe some audio codecs.  Not too sure since I'm not very familiar with sound cards.

    Need some guidance PS4 Gaming Setup

    Agree about source quality.  I'm sure non of the audiophile cans would do my Nexus 5 justice on a train ride :/ I use Viper4android but that could only do so much.   and I thought TOSLINK had good quality audio for games at least?  Any got info on that? links?   I could easily install a...

    Surround in stereo

    Sorry I can't answer about the beyer dynamic,  You could try them out in a store or read reviews for that.  As far as benefiting form surround sound.  I would say tell me what you plan on listening to? and it depends on the audio source too, gaming console, PC, phone, etc.

    Need some guidance PS4 Gaming Setup

    I actually found them on head-fi myself.   I failed to mention that I wanted to use them as headphones too lol.   After looking at the Hyper Cloud I had some concerns though.  1 was the 60 ohms requirement also some reviews mentioned some of the parts feeling very cheap and plasticy, at abot...
