    I do this just to have 2 rca inputs.

    Schiit Gungnir DAC

    I've never been sure what is meant by "bleached" in this context, but apparently I like it.

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    I don't have any other streaming apps, but it is accurate with my own library played via jriver 24. It only shows sample rate via USB though, so I couldn't test with music via the Node 2i which has no USB out. The Node and my m11 Pro are my normal streaming devices, while my usual dac for music...

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    One of my dacs shows sample rate, and it always shows the rate that is set in windows, regardless of the sample rate that the Amazon app says the file is. The setting in windows is also the sample rate the app says my device is capable of playing, regardless of the actual capabilities of the dac.

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    And I cannot reliably hear any difference. I guess it shall remain a mystery.

    Shanling M0 - Nano size, touch screen, LDAC & aptX BT, USB DAC/transport and ESS Sabre ES9218P, FW 3.5

    Once the m0 has received the bt signal, it can only output an analog signal. You could send that analog signal to an outboard amplifier, but not to a dac, which will only convert a digital signal. It is nonsensical to send an analog signal to a dac.

    With Both Good Looks and Strengths, FiiO FH5s, 2BA 2DD IEMs, Is Officially Released!

    Sounds like my impatience (bought a used dk3001 pro because I was too impatient to wait for the fh5s) may have worked to my benefit for once. I was so impressed with the fd5 that these seemed interesting upon first blush, and this is just one guy's opinion, but...might have dodged a bullet.

    Schiit Gungnir DAC

    Some amount of give is inevitable and desirable, as the alternative is breakage. My coax ports will move a little using just my fingers but only with a bit of force applied, but add some leverage in the form of a stiff digital cable, and they move pretty easily. But I would rather it move than...

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    It is also entirely possible that Amazon has changed somehow the function of the exclusive mode setting since I last compared them, which was no more than two weeks or so after that option was added to the app. At that time, I couldn't discern any difference in sound quality between having it...

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    @DeweyCH, I am curious as to what function that you believe that "exclusive mode" is performing in the Amazon app whereby your sound quality is being improved. Please enlighten me, as I am always interested in improving sound quality.

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    The only thing that function does is make it so that system sounds won't hijack your dac while you are playing back music. That's it. Has no bearing on anything that could affect sound quality.

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    I think the nozzles on Shure universals like the 535 are the same size as the Westones, if that makes it any easier. Etymotics too. Good luck.

    FiiO 2021 Spring New Products

    For me, the m11 pro is all I will ever need in a dap. Unless/until it no longer works. Very happy with it, and any improvement in sound is irrelevant, as I have better at home, and the noise floor on the go makes upgrading it not cost effective.

    I also don't think there is any "right" answer to this. Whatever gives you the best control with the least noise.

    For the reason I cited above I think your expectations are unrealistic. You can always take your $ elsewhere.

    Doesn't change your situation at all of course, but if you have 100 in inventory, and an order queue of 200 unprocessed orders and you are number 199. It's a good problem to have as a manufacturer, but a problem nonetheless. Especially for you. Bummer dude. Based on my experience, it's worth a...

    At least those look like I could get them to a depth where I could get a seal, which I haven't yet achieved with the bl-03s.

    Bluesound Node 2i

    For me, pcm via my dac sounded better than Tidal masters (mqa) via the internal dac in the Node 2i. And comparisons of mqa and pcm both via the Node's dac were inconclusive at best. In general, I remain unconvinced regarding the putative benefit of mqa, regardless of the dac used. And there are...

    Schiit Jotunheim 2 - Impressions Thread

    Depends on the dac. Some at least claim not to impose a bit reduction with signal attenuation. But that possibility is why I use a preamp to attenuate. Whether any bit loss would be audible would depend on the values of many other variables, but whether different gain settings would result in an...
