    Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1 Amp/DAC

    I got this amp last year for Christmas, and it has served me well, but I'm in no need of a headphone amplifier. The amplifier has been setup with a Audio-GD Sun HDAM, LM4562, and WE396A tube mods. Those three things made the sound significantly better, especially the two opamp mods. The LM4562...

    Buying my first amp/dac - could use some advice

    I'm currently using HD 555's and I just nabbed a pair of HD 650's last night on sale. So, I guess that means it's time to invest in an amp and some kind of dac-- or combo. These headphones are going to stay put, so portability is not necessary. Currently my 555's are just connected to my desktop...

    Maverick D1 Dac compared to Asus DAC

    Can anyone tell me if the Maverick D1 (dac/amp in one unit, not the two devices paired) would be a big step up from the STX? If I use SPDIF to my on-board RealTek w/ X-Fi MB3 would I be able to get CMSS-3D and EAX through the Maverick D1?   I am thinking about getting rid of the STX (it's...
