    digital audio to receiver

    thanks guys, I'll take a look for these options / look into buying a mini to coax cable.   does anyone know if that exists? I only ask since mini plug is based on light, and coax is based on electricity.

    Grado SR325i / AKG K701 / Sennheiser 650

    I've only listened to the SR80i's and my current SR325is's, but I love them coming out of the Little Dot I+, which is a very cheap, but versatile hybrid tube amp with plenty of tube rolling opportunities and even op-amp rolling.   I auditioned the K701's at the same time as the SR325is's...

    digital audio to receiver

    hey all;   so I have an NAD receiver with a bunch of digital inputs that I would love to make use of with my Macbook Pro. Unfortunately, it makes no noise when I plug it in. Now I've tooled around with the settings and made sure that everything was 'on.' The cable works because I can use it...

    Which DAC to choose...again

    Quote: thanks for the advice TheWuss. I couldn't help noticing that you have a Keces DAC. I'm also considering the Keces 131, have you spent any time with that?

    Which DAC to choose...again

    I looked up the DACmagic's stats and it has two WM8740 chips, while the audio-gd nfb-3 has two WM8741's. does anyone know if there is a large difference between these chips? especially since the NFB-3 is $130 cheaper than the DACmagic

    Which DAC to choose...again

    Quote: I was afraid that might be the case. My current DAC only has a USB input, so it seems a little silly of StyleAudio to limit the input when the actual chip can do more.

    Which DAC to choose...again

    Which DAC to choose...again

    hey all;   so I'm in a real pickle, also known as having upgraditis (I was hoping it would pass over me...psych). Like a lot of the threads around here, I'm curious to know which DAC to pick to pair with my current (and hopefully future) set up.   What I have: currently a StyleAudio...

    Little Dot I+ Tube Rolling

    Quote: +1 on the RF, I can't keep mine too close to my Macbook Pro, either because of its PSU or the wifi

    Little Dot I+ Tube Rolling

      Quote: the only thing that worries me is that one I bought didn't have a half moon indentation and yours does, but in any case this is probably the cheapest upgrade I can do!     EDIT: cruizin caleb, I just noticed that the link you had was for two opamps, and I found the same...

    Introductory Amp/DAC

    Quote: thanks a lot chrislangley4254, I actually just purchased a StyleAudio Carat-Emerald and a Little Dot I+ (yes, a little above my original budget...) and I'm going to see how those sound before I attempt any sort of modding of my SR80's, and too be honest I'm a little afraid to do...
