    Im wondering if a USB cable modded with only the two data lines connected (stripping the power + and - lines) will improve the signal quality. After all through the data lines theres only a serial digital stream. What do you think?

    On the low cost of the spectrum is also iFi Audio iSilencer 3.0 that I have not tried.

    That's what I'm getting here , R2R nice and laid back, 11.28 quick and detailed. Is anybody here having hum problems with the 11.28 or is it just the R2R? I'm wondering if that hum is just floor noise.

    No hum with R2R11. It might however be a ground loop or such on your side which is not easily remedied. Try connecting the DAC to a different power socket, preferably far away in a different room (because power sockets are connected in circles) to see if the ground loop disappears (which is usually caused by a PC)

    The pairing between the LCD-2C and the R2R-11 is quite good!

    I already decided on the R2R a while ago and that isn't changing. Like I said the majority of this thread prefers the R2R and it's not just Head-Fi. The signature of the headphone shouldn't matter, the V-shaped headphone will give you way more of a V-shape sound than any DAC/Amp can, the job of the DAC/Amp is to take the headphones sound and make it better and judging by this thread the R2R does it better than the NFB. The R2R being slightly warmer and more musical isn't going to ruin a V-shape, detail or speed.

    I am pretty sure the R2R11 will sound great with a V shape. It won't emphasize the signature.

    The R2R 11 is not better, it's just different, and they have more similarities than different, plus you can find comments from people who prefer NFB 11.28, I even plan to buy it instead of R2R 11.
    What I wanted to know is if one of the two is better for V signatures.

    I have that headphone in the shopping cart every day and have not been able to push the buy button! Not yet anyway.

    Do it, you won't regret it. You'll sell all your low-fi, budget-fi, mid-fi cans.

    Or buy the he560 on sale at Adorama for 350$. And enjoy.

    I had a chance to try some USB decrapifier for the R2R-11 a few days ago (Jitterbug, Wyrd, iPurifier2), they make so little impact it was not worth it at all. I'd say if you want an obvious sonic improvement, just go for Eitr. Go big or go home.

    Or the Beyerdynamic Amiron Home, though I've never tested it. :frowning2: Has anyone ever used it with one of these two amplifiers?

    Could improve things for sure.
