    Just tried that virtual cable thing. There's no pop when I use it.

    very very interesting I also don't have a Pop when using Eitr with coax input of R2R 11. Didn't even realize it until I read you statements above and tested it myself:wink:

    I'm am enjoying my R2R-11 since I got it last week, feels like a big upgrade coming from a DX90 + Cayin C5.

    Am following this thread about the Schiit Eitr, that option is completely new for me.
    One question: What will be the benefit/difference listening to FLAC files from my PC-->(USB) Eitr--> (coax) R2R-11, compared to listening from my DX90 via coax into the R2R-11 ?

    I'm so confused now. Are there different versions of the R2R-11 or something?
  5. alota
    no. just one. why?
  6. anoxy
    Idk, that bridge thing just confused me.
  7. alota
    i have not read last part, but the bridge i assume is an interface from usb to coaxial or optical. r2r-11 has three digital input: coaxial, optical and usb(Amanero interface)

    Normally I'd just say 'grab the Eitr, it's great', but in that specific case... I don't know. If you can't hear much difference between the DAP going into the R2R-11 and PC into R2R-11, then I'd say yes, get the Eitr. For a PC at the very lease, it's a great improvement.

    For jazz listening, the r2r 11 is a perfect partner to the Sony mdr-7506. Deep clean bass and everything you could wish for.

    Thanks for your answer..
    I am doing some A/B testing at the moment, really can't notice any difference so far; it's easy to test this by switching from coax to USB, and start the songs at the exact same moment.. :)
    Same songs/files:
    A: From PC USB into R2R-11
    B: DX90 coaxial into R2R-11.

    So, that means Eitr should improve overall !? :clap:
  11. thebkt
    I imagine it would. It certainly did for me and many others in the Eitr thread. I was originally skeptical as to how much difference it would make, especially because I didn't suffer from any noise issues and couldn't really imagine how it'd improve things. It did of course, though I didn't notice it very much immediately. After listening to a few tracks it was clear I was hearing quite a few subtleties in a lot of tracks that I'd never heard before.

    From what I've read, the bigger Audio-gd DAC's have noise isolation solutions built in and wouldn't benefit nearly as much as the NFB/R2R-11. This is very much the same case for me and my Mimby compared to the bigger Schiit DAC's which all have the Gen 5 benefits offered by the Eitr.

    i´m trying too asiobridge. really interesting product. for now, almost cancelled the boring pop
    p.s.: i don´t remeber the user who posted the link. my sincer thanks to him

    Thr r2r 11 is amazing with he-560 for classical. What a nice soundstage and upper mid.

    I like how you are randomly inserting about these headphones when the thread is currently consumed by the Eitr.

    Just my o

    The R2r 11 is such a nice combo. I am under the urge of sharing my listening impressions.

    I also own the nfb-1amp that i combine with the r2r 7 dac. This is even a better combination for the he-560. But for only a fraction of the cost, you get a nice approximation with the r2r 11. I will let the r2r 11 burn for a while before making a final judgement but after only 50 hours, it is already amazing. I am not really into classical music that much but i swear the r2r 11 does play that style with a refinement that is quite unbelievable and i just enjoy it so much that i will start buying records. Classical is so hard to get right that it makes it unpopular. The r2r 11 really nails it paired with the he-560. This setup is only 800usd landed if you get the he-560 from Adorama. That is very little for a real taste of high-end.

    The big setup sounds a little more crisp, resolved and dynamic and has better control over bass but is not that much more enjoyable.
