    Yulong D200 32-bit 384KHz DSD DAC/Amp

    Selling my Yulong D200 DSD DAC/Amp in 9/10 condition, or possibly even 10/10 - topic prone to subjectivity. But in any case, there is not a single scratch on the unit, and it has been handled with utmost deliberate care throughout the couple of months that I've been using it.   Can send the...

    As the title suggests I'm looking for a pair of Darth Beyers in good condition. Preferrably V3>V4>V6. Type of wood finish doesn't matter just as long as there aren't any serious blemishes on it.   Shipping within or to Europe. I stand for freight costs.   PM me with the version, condition...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    I'm not expecting it to mute the source, some ext volume controllers I've used before had no sound leakage when dial is turned to minimum. It's kind of annoying when you don't want to hear anything at all; makes it more convenient to use an external DAC/Amp.

    Lifatec Silflex Glass Toslink 10ft

    For sale in pristine condition. Receipt and warranty included.   Very sturdy toslink cable with metal coating - yet still very elastic, even more resilient that ordinary plastic IMO. Excellent for some environments where cables are often treaded on. I've had a bad luck with countless of cheap...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    But does any of you experience sound when external volume controller is on minimum volume (given that the soundcards/computer level is at 100%).

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Reinstalled latest drivers and got a clicking sound on start-up now (or maybe I didnt hear it properly before). Still issues with volume though.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

      It doesn't click on start-up. It does click when I switch between speaker and headphones   Rollbacking drivers did not working, going to return it tomorrow for a new one

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

      If that's the case I'll try a roll back in driver first and see if I notice any difference.   Last time I checked I didn't hear any clicking noise during start-up.

    Anyone with HD650 and Philips X1 w. good desktop rig?

    Quote:   I sold the HD650 because I bought the LCD-2 which I thought sounded much better. Then I made a budget cut, sold the LCD-2 and got the X1 instead and couldn't be any happier; for the price X1 is a real gem. I also find the X1 more comfortable for my head.

    REVIEW: Yulong Sabre A18 Reference headphone amp

    Quote: What headphones are you using? I had absolutely no background noise with my LCD-2 and HD650, apart from IEMs.

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Quote: IMO cables don't make that much difference anyway. Unless you're actually using, say, a true balanced system and running it through RCA only. You'd want XLR recabling in order to use the full potentials of the MK VI+ for instance, David wrote so himself in an email when I asked him...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Quote: For $300 you can get a used D100 II, really good DAC/Amp, and it works quite well with LCD-2.

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Quote:   I also think it has to do with what people percieve as neutral, warm or cold. Some say that DAC1 is cold, others say it's straight-up cold and clinical. V200 or A18 to some may be neutral/natural, or warm to others. Back when I listened to a lot of tube amps the only thing that...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Quote: Exactly my thoughts. When I was comparing the A18 to the V200 I noticed that the treble is slightly smoother on the A18 and the A18 being a little more spacious - but the LCD-2 does not benefit that much from it, it was more noticable on the K701 I borrowed; and therefore I can...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    For LCD-2 I preferred the Yulong Sabre A18 a bit more over the Violectric V200. I was also a little disappointed with the V200, if it was cheaper it would've been a teriffic amp. I thought it fared slightly better with the HD650 than the LCD-2 for some reason.

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Just got a reply from David.   He writes that the power output into 50 ohms is around 6W per channel and 3W per channel to 600 ohms. The balanced output impedance is 32-600 ohms. (The impedance description he gave is very standard and not that specific, so it's hard to pinpoint its exact...

    By the way, given that the amp is OTL/OCL, how does its output impedance measure? I've only read that people like using the LCD-2 with it but nothing about its pairing with lower impedance headphones. Waiting for Davidzhezhe's response as well.
