    Optical Out Sound Card

    Hello everybody! I have ordered a Maverick D1 DAC/Amp to use at the office.   However, it can only sample 24-bit if the signal is sent via Optical, instead of USB and my computer doesn't have optical out.   Question is: if I bought a really cheap sound card with optical out, let's say...

    I have already replaced the opamps and was wondering if there are any other mods that can be done to the D1. I've heard about replacing the caps, but I haven't really been able to locate a guide on it. Also, if there are any other mods such as replacing the power supply, changing the gain, etc...

    REVIEW: Maverick Audio TubeMagic A1 integrated amp/pre-amp/headphone amp

        INTRO   Tube amps. Many people swear by them, others are not interested. Until recently, many tube based headphone amps were on the more expensive side. But in the last few years we have seen many companies (mostly China based) release very respectable products in the under $400...

    Getting the most of out of my Headphones?

    Hey Guy's,   This is my first post here and my first jump into better quality sound.  I've recently bought a pair of Audio-technica ATH-M50's after reading all the reviews and the affordable price point.  Upgrading from just a pair of Skullcandy ear buds the sound has already improved.  ...

    Best sub-$300 Solid-State Amplifier from a US based dealer?

    Want to have a go at my first headphone amp but not 100% convinced that I will hear a big difference in sound compared to my Onkyo TX-SR805. And being a bit if a skeptic, I want to buy it from a place that has some kind of money back guarantee in case I don't like.  I'm getting an A/B switch to...

    Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1 Tube DAC or Beresford TC-7520 (or Caiman)

    Was wondering if anyone could advise on which of the two DAC/Amp I should get to complement my DT880 (32 ohm). Have been more a portable kind of person so this is my first DAC/Amp and am in a dilemma now of which to get (both have considerably good reviews). I heard the DT880 would fare better...

    Reducing gain by swapping op-amps? (LD i+)

    Hi all,   My current setup is using the Maverick D1 as a DAC and pre-amp out to my Little Dot I+.  With the D1, I want to use the switch to bypass the potentiometer, but when I do that, the LD potentiometer needs to be set very low.  The problem is that when the LD volume is set so low, the...

    Best paring: DT880 / HD600 / HD650 with NuForce uDac / Maverick Audio Tube Magic D1

    Maverick D1 and Grado HF2, what's next?

    Hello! I have been spinning myself in circles the last month or so trying to find a stepping (jumping) off point in this hobby. I stumbled upon one of the HF2 threads and decided that a mid range set of Grados seemed like a good start.   I have a fairly extensive iTunes library ripped at...

    Cheapest usb amp/dac that offers best sound quality.

    I am looking for a new soundcard for my new Linux build, but though I should also look at small usb dac's.  I have 60ohm headphones if that means anything.  I'm not looking for anything overly fancy, just something that plays the audio well.  It needs to work with Linux, I've read units like the...

    Denon SACD/DVD-A Player or Laptop > Maverick D1 24bit/96khz DAC > Tube Preout > Denon AVR-1604 Receiver > JBL L830 Bookshelf Speakers.   It is just fantastic, especially since I pieced it together with mostly used equipment.   I finally got my speakers attached with some high quality...

    Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1/A1 vs Little Dot MkIII

    Hello   I want to buy a tube amp and I'm interested in these 3 models (D1, A1 and MKIII). Being honest, I believe, for what I've read here in the forum, that the Little Dot MKIII is better in sound quality than the TubeMagic models and I'm almost decided to buy it, but it would be great if...

    DAC advice requested!

    I'm trying to think of a way to phrase this the whole question as succinctly as possible, but knowing my own self, that is unlikely.   Alright. I'm really looking at a nice desktop DAC so to speak. I've done a fair amount of reading and to be honest, I've made little or no head way towards...
