    Click while starting and ending an audio file

    Dear all,   I just noticed using an audio file with a high frequency noise on it, which is not audible by people, that when I start and stop the reproduction, the system generates a click. I tried it with two different audio files, one encoded at 96 kHz and one at 192 kHz. I do not listen to...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Hi, IMHO, the HD650 are way better than the HD558/HD598, in another different league. For me, the difference between the HD650 and the HD800 is much smaller than that between the HD650 and the HD558/HD598. But you need an amp for the HD650, and a good source.

    What makes certain music enjoyable for you?

    Hi!   Between Pasive and Active listening, I think I hate background music, so would be more the active kind. I do not know what kind of element makes me enjoy the music, but when I really like something, I forget about everything else.   Daniel

    Bob Dylan albums - Itunes vs. everything else.

      Hi StratocasterMan,   In my case, I do not dismiss the more recent Dylan albums, it is only that I try to explore Dylan chronologically.   Thanks for your comments,   Daniel

    Sennheiser HD518 HD558 HD598 HD559 HD589 HD579 HD599 Support Thread

    hi! My 558 was stock, any mod at all. I like it better than the 598, I feel it gives a better texture to the music, and more emotion. The 598 has a slightly better sound stage, but both are very good on this area. Have a nice day, Daniel

    is it Sibilance?

    Hi all, Yesterday evening I was listening to music using the hd800, and notice that in one recording with female vocals, there were acentuated sounds I never noticed before. They were not "ssssss" or "shh" as the description of sibilance I found here, but there are a lot of acentuated swalow...

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    Hi people, Many are talking about the fatiguing trebel, but for me the fatigue come from the stereo bass. If I apply the crossover in Jriver when I feel tired of the headphones, the fatigue goes away. The same has been already commented by another member, I think in this same thread. Try it...

    96/24 Vs. 44.1/16 Vs. MP3 320

    Dear all,   I realise I made two mistakes:   1) When applying the low pass filter, I did not use enough "roll off" per octave, only 6dB. Now I applied 48dB at 20kHz, but I am still getting audio signal below this frequency. I amplified the remaining signal 45 dB, and I could hear the song...

    96/24 Vs. 44.1/16 Vs. MP3 320

    Dear all,   I wake up very early this morning, and as my wife did not want to speak with me at those hours, I had to occupy my time with a little experiment.   First aim was to find a way to verify if there is a way to verify that the process I am using to rip my CD's was properly...

    How is the experience of listening a pair of Adam A7X, coming from Sennheiser HD800?

    Hi all,   I am thinking of buying a pair of Adam A7x or A5x. Currently I listen only to headphones, mainly HD800 and HD650 and I am very pleased, but I recently listen to a expensive pair of speakers I cannot afford (not even want to ask the brand, but the price was +30k Eur for the chain) in...

    Hi, merry Christmas!   I think this topic has been discussed before, so you could find a better answer than mine searching in the forum.   For me, USB asynchronous is much better than toslink. I have a Mac Mini and the sound I get from the USB is superior than the sound I get from the...

    Clicks and distortion when converting from 96/24 to 44/16

    Dear all,   I am trying to downsample some tracks to make a kind of comparation between sample rates, to verify to myself if I am able to hear any difference. To be sure I am using the same mix of the song, I tried to downsample the tracks using "Switch Sound File Converter", which works fine...

    Asynchronous USB Audio Driver

    The ASIO option does not work, so you are right and it is hardware specific. Other than that, the NuForce driver works much better than the original one. It looks also as it is a newer version. I will write to the manufacturer and ask if they have a newer version, probably they do.

    Hi all,   I have a problem, well.. I had a problem that has been solved, but the solution probably is not optimal, and therefore I would ask you.   My DAC is a Lindemann USB DAC 24/192. The driver for the dac is simply bad. I do not know if it is bad becouse has not been optimize for my...
