    Interesting, you know what’s the price gonna be? I have some very similar power strips from Inakustik along with some AC purifiers.

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    The Pro has some neat use cases, one of them being an optical connection to a Babyface Pro, so it has a femto clock as well. Wish I had money for the V281’s bigger newer brother, the Niimbus US4+ but holy moly it’s expensive!

    V281 as well, and it’s glorious!

    Mytek Brooklyn Thread

    Same here, used them both when I still had the LCD-X and the RME was cleaner and more detailed, but the Brooklyn had a really nice warmth and richness to it, slightly more depth as well. Can't go wrong with either honestly.

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    I'd say the V281 is a neat little upgrade to the ADI-2 DAC amp, but I wouldn't say a clear improvement, it's just more compatible with different kinds of headphones.

    I don't have the DAC version but I reckon it's the same, the pre-amp is great. Hell, professionals, dealers and Hi-Fi users even couple the ADI-2 to 10K speakers such as the Dutch&Dutch 8C's and Kii Audio Three as end-game solution.

    Has anyone compared the Verite to the Utopia yet? Should be a really interesting comparison!

    RME ADI-2 Pro - DAC, Headamp, an a lot of more stunning features

    http://www.rme-audio.de/en/products/adi_2-pro_be.php New limited edition version with a black front-plate instead of silver and blue. No other external/internal changes to my knowledge and will be the same price as the normal ADI-2 Pro.

    Oh man, your bringing me some very bad idea's. just when I thought I was complete for the coming years... though I have a Clear up for sale soon, might just check one out for the hell of it. :) Hmm personally I don't really mind, almost all high-end cans look ridiculous on the head anyway.

    Heard neither, but the Ori with cowleather has tons of bass to the point that it is too much even for me. (a fellow bass head) Best thing is that it’s a good ol’ orthodynamic so the bass stays crystal clear and has such an amazing kick to it, very impactful and spacious, seriously impressive and...

    Can highly recommend a Ori and Auteur combination, you can really tailor the Auteur in sound whether it's with different pads or different types of amplifiers, with a really good tube amp and Eikon or suede pads it will move towards a HD 650 signature but better in almost all aspects, and with a...

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    It looked that way, however I asked it on the RME forums as well and someone pointed out I was wrong and ASIO has to be set in every individual program to utilize ASIO properly. Problem solved! :)

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    Anyone know if ASIO is working correctly in Foobar2K with the ADI-2 when not having a ASIO plugin installed? Without the ASIO plugin Foobar just says the ADI-2 is a DirectSound output, with the ASIO plugin I can select the ASIO version of the Madiface aka ADI-2. But I think it's unnecessary as...

    Yeah it may sound critical in the way that I worded it, however it's very minor. I've had worse cables, just the non-sleeved part after the splitter though and definitely not something immersion breaking, sounds great with just about any mini-xlr headphone I've tried.

    Hmm, I must say the 2K cable has some microphonics as well, it’s not too bad if you don’t move around too much, which I personally only do with the abuse of certain substances. :gs1000smile:

    Focal Clear headphones

    Good on you friend, you won't regret it the amount of fun options and tweaks is astonishing on the device! I never saw comparisons with the iFi Black Label, but I heard the ADI-2 DAC goes toe to toe with the iFi iCan Pro depending on the headphone in question which is in quite another (price)...

    Very helpful post! I've been thinking about selling my Clear and getting a V2 but it seems somewhat not worth it from this comparison. Would you say the HEK V2 is a nice second pair to keep along with the Auteur or are they too similar in sound?

    Focal Clear headphones

    900?! It should be around 600 or less even. And yes the either the DAC or Pro are great with the Clear, used it both balanced and unbalanced on the Pro, sounded excellent all-around and can keep up just fine with the Clear.

    iFi AC iPurifier - Video Mini Series - The look, the tech, the lowdown. MORE ADDED!

    +1 not a huge difference but it does indeed improve in those area's, I've removed the three I have from my powerstrip for a month and when I plugged them back in I instantly noticed the subtle blackness that comes with them, without affecting sound quality. If you have a monitor or TV with a...

    I’d say both have a good amount of rumble, but the Auteur is more flat, the Ori really goes all out with it’s fast planar bass and is imo a delight to listen to with bass heavy music! I must say I use cowpads with the Ori though, they give really deep bass to the sound without being overpowering...
