    Oh, hey! He finally put it out. I actually forgot about this. He's been sitting on the review for 2 months now. I don't entirely agree with some of his thoughts, but our preferences are very different. I like natural/neutral and he likes warmer sound as he mentions. Very good review tho. Some...

    Dangerous how? Does your gear not have protection circuits for over voltage, current etc? Might need to read some of those manuals before putting your foot furthur down your throat mate.

    Not quite you are missing the point. You aren't testing for quality sound. Your testing for limitations of your amp (as long as your headphones don't distort of course, but I doubt stealth will. it's the equivalent of redlining the engine in your car And finding the rev limiter. If you can. the...

    Don't try again at the same volume. Go LOUDER. As loud as you can. The objective is to see if you can cause the dac or amp to distort or clip. It's basically loading your gear up to it's maximum possible output. Yes. The hpa4 goes up to +15db. So 0d.0db is aprox....88% if my math is correct.

    Focus less on the quality of the audio eg the blacks and so on. Listen only for DISTORTION or clipping. Turn the volume pots till it clips or distorts or until you run out of volume/gain. Your not testing sound quality in this case remember your testing what the dac/amp can handle when pushed...

    Like I said I'm an idiot so could be wrong. I don't know much about streamers as I didn't go down that path so can't comment enough to be productive. I wanted max quality for $ so went basic wires in/wires out bench station.

    Yes. Because of the massive amount of bass/sub bass (and their frequency's I think? Not sure) Depending on amp/dac they can't handle it and either distorts or clips at high levels. It takes a huge amount of oooompf to drive the stealth up to 100% volume on this track (if stealth even has a...

    I could be wrong, but if you can't clip on cradle to the grave and you don't destroy your driver's your doing it wrong dude. My schiit magnius/modius and benchmark stacks both either clipped or activated power protection. But it's so loud and vibratey that it was scary to listen to for your...

    I like stealth bass. I. Cranked "encoder" by pendulum recently and just melted into my chair. Granted it's more sub-bass mabey? But jesus lord almighty how low does stealth go? I'm amazed I can hear some of those frequency's. And my ears are pretty good for my age (somehow) Limbo contest winner...

    It could change mine. But You flat out refuse to provide any evidence to back up your claims. On another note... Sounds great on stealth, even better when paired with a power conditioner, graphine coated nano silver oxide turbo unicorn mane braided cables and a toslink converter. Oh, and...

    I love to learn 😊 especially if it can make stuff sound better Please tell me your hypothesis, give me your testing and recorded data including links along with your conclusion. Genuinely interested if you can back your claims up.

    Need a tosslink converter and 10k of power conditioners to smooth out someone's posts on here. His energy is erratic and causing poor performance on my phone.😂

    I get no bass from stealth of susvara either. Sounds Like hd800's. Must be my poor quality benchmark gear. Mabey a power conditioner will fix it?

    To clarify, you just said: Dave dosent drive susvara, add external amp and it drives susvara with colour, but Dave has the power to drive susvara. I love a good contradiction :-) Hey, I'm not saying it's easy for us. There's a lot of factors. And we really can only trust our own ears, the...

    I leave my fridge on, but then again the internal power system in the dac3 and hpa4 seem pretty solid. Also we have good power in Australia. If gear is designed properly, then you shouldn't really need power conditioning (woth a few exceptions of course) The fact that chord has USB issues is...

    Decided to retest cradle to the grave from hostiles soundtrack for clipping on the stealth/benchmark stack today. My normal quiet to very loud listening range is -30 to -10db on the amp -track volume and my mood depending. I have tested it on tracks way up into +10db territory but only...

    100% it's in the tracks, not the cans. Sorry should have been clearer on that

    There will be no upgrade from benchmark for a long, long time. Mabey some replacements for the aeon2's one day but that's it. I've hit my wall financially and ear-ily I think!
