    Sennheiser HD800 vs. Beyerdynamic T1 2nd gen vs. Klipsch Heritage HP-3

    The OTL is simply out of my reach given my current disposable cash. The Violetric seems to be great. Will see when I can get an upgrade :smile_phones:. How much better will the V281 make HD800 better than with the HDVA600? Did you use it only without pre-amp?

    Sennheiser HD800 vs. Beyerdynamic T1 2nd gen vs. Klipsch Heritage HP-3

    I have the HD800 which I love it and would keep it even I have more and better one. I had been interested in the Byerdynamic T1 first generation. Of course I like the 2nd generation even more. I had Klipsch Synergy home theater system and bookshelf RP-160M. Needless to say I love this brand...

    Full size close-back inexpensive headphone driven by smart phone and PC

    Yes, I read it's not very comfortable, maybe it feels like what I feel from Sennheiser HD 380 Pro. I read someone changed ear pads and it became comfortable. I will try that. After this I am done with headphone. I have close to 10 already. Unless I have a few $$$$ for an STAX SR-009

    Full size close-back inexpensive headphone driven by smart phone and PC

    I had a few head phones which work for me greatly at home. I am looking for one that I will use at office. My Sennheiser HD Pro 380 is closed back and it does not feel comfortable. I haven't frequented this board for quiet long and I am not aware if any headphone meet what I need. 1. decent...

    New Audio-gd DAC-19 [10th Anniversary Edition]

    Hello my friends, long time no show  of me.   Just received my balanced cable for HD 800 made by Norne audio. Here is what I feel the most obvious:   Using Amanero USB from windows 8.1, music sounds good and feels good and volume is much higher than using optical or Coaxial from the same PC...

    I received a few pins. I know they are to be put inside to change settings but I haven't dug into details of that on how and why and what benefit we can gain from doing that.

    Digital Audio Player with digital output

    I am looking for a good quality Digital Audio Player to play lossless (FLAC preferred) format music and output signal via digital connection (optical, Coaxial or USB) to dedicated DAC and Amp and to headphone. I am looking for this to avoid using PC all the time to play music. I do not carry DAP...

    FiiO X7 preview world tour--tour impressions rolling in

    For those who have the X7, do you feel the music loud better if you feed the DAC/Amp -> headphone with X7 than feed with PC or Mac?

    The Sennheiser Orpheus 2? A First Look At The Sennheiser HE-1 (The New Orpheus)

    If I have disposable cash for it I would get for the end of game equipment. But a product at this price deserves very long time warranty, say 10+ years. Imagine you spent $55000 for a headphone set and it stops working at 3-5 year mark and then you have to spend $5000-10000 to fix it.

    FiiO X7 preview world tour--tour impressions rolling in

    What's the maximum capacity this player can have? From the specs it seems to have 32GB built in and one can add another 128GB. Is this true? Somehow I feel disappointed because many people love lossless and the total file size of their music can be easily over 160GB. If X5 II can have two 128GB...

    The Sennheiser Orpheus 2? A First Look At The Sennheiser HE-1 (The New Orpheus)

    Is it really limited edition that they will only produce 300-1000 units? I hope not. That will be more detrimental than having a luxury car price tag to music/headphone lovers who do not have a fat wallet. They can keep its price tag and production so music/headphone lovers will have a chance to...

    New Audio-gd DAC-19 [10th Anniversary Edition]

      I am afraid that really cheap one would degrade the sound quality. I am interested in FiiO X5 2nd generation but its battery problem seems to be pretty bad that it is not customer replaceable. It seems to have coaxial digital output.

    New Audio-gd DAC-19 [10th Anniversary Edition]

    How can I connect my smart phone or tablet to the DAC-19 and HDVA 600?   The DAC has only USB, optical and coaxial as inout and has only one set of composite output. The HDVA has one set of composite input and a set of balanced input. The phone and tablet all have one regular analog out put...

    New Audio-gd DAC-19 [10th Anniversary Edition]

    I am using Windows 8.1 64 bit. It works. I do need to turn it off and turn it on for it to be seen by windows 8.1. Not a big deal after you do it a few times.   I agree with Stillhart that the compatibility between Windows 10 and the DAC-19 is out of the control of Audio-GD.

    New Audio-gd DAC-19 [10th Anniversary Edition]

    Regarding windows, I have to say they suck on the stability. I use them both at work and at home. If you built your own PC or it's upgradable, one good way to deal with the new version is to have dual boot: keep the one your using and install the new one. You need two drives and this is hardly...

    New Audio-gd DAC-19 [10th Anniversary Edition]

    How about you leave the DAC-19 turned on and reboot windows 8.1? I assume you already turned off the DAC-19 before the windows was up.

    New Audio-gd DAC-19 [10th Anniversary Edition]

    Does it reconnect to the DAC-19 if your Windows 8.1 is rebooted? Mine does not and I have to go through the turning off and turning on process waisting 5-15 seconds.

    New Audio-gd DAC-19 [10th Anniversary Edition]

    Before I had the DAC-19 I used NuForce HDP. In Foobar 2000 on windows 8.1, the status bar always display 44100 Hz. I had posted it in a thread that I can't find. Another member replied that it's not important at all for that display and that number can be configured to display higher number (he...
