    Isone Pro - the best thing you could ever get for your headphones on your computer

    the isone setup guide is to the point, gets the job done. dont really understand what else one needs?   posting others settings? dont see the point.  we all have different head sizes/shapes/headphones.  even using others setup as a starting point. it makes no sense.     start with all...

    Got a new dac..Emotiva Stealh DC-1, and it is flawless reference quality.

    Got a new dac..Emotiva Stealh DC-1, and it is flawless reference quality.

    Got a new dac..Emotiva Stealh DC-1, and it is flawless reference quality.

    i thought someone would enjoy seeing someone posting about first-hand experience with the device.      the over the top bitchness and misplaced, impotent vitriol is...to put it lightly , extremely strange.     it is one guy posting about experience with a newish DAC. I know. serious...
