Strangely my asus only plays with Jriver18+asio when I set the latency to 50!! any other and the player will not work.

Got it (sure heavier than I expected) the build quality is top notch and the pictures do not do justice this piece of love, still @ my office and I have to take my girl to a nice dinner (so I can relay the bad  news...
)....
Edit: Foobar asio workin, but not with jriver!!! no sound and no play..
edit : changed latency to 50...now working....I just connected it to my airmotiv4 to let my girl enjoy what I got her!
Update : 384!!! is this true?
@ acidic, manual is the same as for other E1 versions as there is no mention of the switch!
It's heavy, and way larger than i had anticipated.
 
Taking your girl out is a good thing, it should be fun, not a chore lol.
 
Set to 24/32 bit in Driver Control Panel.
Use ASIO.
Disable "use large hardware buffers".
 
Set Latency to 10.
Any lower, and you'll find distortion in sound not delivering fast enough.

I have galaxy s3, my wife gnote 2, I try both phone with the odac and the s3 has vastly superior sound with odac.
I don t know why but the usb signal out of s3 is very good.
The gnote 2 lack in clarity compared to s3.
I don t try with asus one.
Do you have bit perfect with gnote 2?
Ciao
!!?? I find it really strange, as the sound should be the same! with some unsupported dacs, the "Audio recorder pro" app solves this.

It sounded amazing thru my speakers, and had a quick listing thru my HE-500.....

 
The "TSSSSST" is there, and I could make it clearly with some songs , but believe me when I say , If it was not for another/better enjoyment/pleasure (Leave it to your imagination...
), I would not have stopped listing to them.
 
I can't imagine how the LCD2 will sound with the muses....Maybe next month, if I could  get them for a bargain.

@Whit3Rav3n, I'm currently using the AD797Bs with OPA627BMs in the LPF and OPA627AUs in the Headphone and RCA Buffers. With the 627s its like someone articulating their words more to get the point across, whereas the 49990s would be like raising one's voice to do it. To me both have around the same amount of detail. The 49990s just sound harsh in comparison.

The same TSSST i get with some songs as well. lol. same boat, same boat.
 
I don't really hear the tsst much (barely on the LCD-2). I think it helped a bit.
 
I like it.

The sound signature of the muses reminds me of the Sabre ES9018, but  much better (more enjoyable).

I could not get the opa627 since it has already been replaced by the 827 but i will try the 827. So with the 627 the sound is balanced without being too thin or bright or anything?

I'm glad you enjoy your new E1 Muses. Welcome to the club dude!
 
 
So my AD797BR's finally arrived and I just installed them into the board!
Hopefully my E1 doesen't turn into a vulcano later this day.
So far I enjoy da-sound!

Man this sucks I'm really starting to get annoyed with the lack of availability of the Muses edition in the UK, that and the ridiculous price difference between the UK and US for the same model of headphones.
 
Sorry just needed to vent a little
