    USB Sound-Card\DAC with Dolby Headphone support? Upgrading from a Xonar DX.

    My desktop's gotten old and I've decided to upgrade to a laptop for mobility purposes, meaning I can no longer use my internal sound-card, an Asus Xonar DX.

    I have a Powerbook G4 (12yrs old? Old.) running OSX 10.5, a Lyr and Hifiman HE 400i, which produces really good music but I'd like to see if I can improve the sound, so I tried to connect a Bistfrost, connecting it to a USB port (there is no optical sound port). But the laptop wouldn't see it at...

    Fiio A3 or Q1 for purely amping purpose

    Comparing the Q1 here as i plan to build a desktop soon, so the DAC might help later. Right now using a monitor laptop setup, the Dell S2415H has a cool feature that's a headphone out, and the sound output is decent but not loud enough, and anyway once connected to laptop via HDMI the...
