    Little Dot DAC_II

    I can't compare to those directly, but I'm still using and loving my LD DAC_II in both headphone and speaker setups. Both sound smooth and transparent, my most important criteria.

    A sound card that can power a Sennehiser HD 650 ?

    Quote: You listen at a volume of 7/100?  With those open headphones a mouse scampering across a carpeted floor could be heard, lol.  IMO, listening at a higher volume allows the music to mesh better and gives enough power to the nuances of the music, which wouldn't be heard otherwise.

    Pictures of your computer rigs! Post them here!

    Here's my home rig, in the office/dedicated listening room. (sorry for crappy cell phone pic).  There's this rig, a cd rack, a big leather chair, and my office desk in here.  When at the desk, it's headphones only because it does not face the speakers.  I usually have the laptop in my lap and...

    Is there much danger of clipping with IEM’s?

    IEMs are blasting the music right down your ear canal and have a much higher chance of giving you ear damage since the sound doesn't have a chance to disperse. So, listening at high volume isn't healthy anyways. That's what I was saying.

    Is there much danger of clipping with IEM’s?

    Clipping, and other forms of distortion, can be caused by many factors. It can be caused solely by the amplifier having too much gain; if the input is a 1 V peak-to-peak sinusoid, and the amp has a gain of 12 dB (or factor of 16), then the output should be a 16 Vpp sinusoid. But if the amp only...

    Quote: assume a perfect microphone for scientific purposes, first off.  secondly, many responses in this thread are bogus.  there's going to be no "spectral change" if all you are transmitting is a perfect tone in a perfect open medium.  if you were to neglect room timbre and the...

    Analog Audio source selector?

    Quote: Okay, so i know I'm bring this thread up from the dead.  Just one question/observation: it seems that, since each RCA jack only has one wire coming from it/going to it, that this uses the chassis as ground and only source-selects the signal.  It looks to me that all your components...
