I went from a ae-5 to ae-9 and the difference was not that big of a difference. But once I swap the opamp on the ae-9 to the Burson vivid v6 the difference was dramatic. Music and sound separation and detail increased dramatically on all the headphones I own. My headphone list goes from a hifi man 400i, beyerdyamic dt990, b&w p9 and Audeze lcd-4. Listening done on aa flat eq in direct mode in the ae-9 setting and music source is from tidal.
Thanks that is probably the only real information I have read around the net confirming the main differences between AE-5 and AE-9, otherwise general reviews are just saying no real difference between the 2 products or not anything worth the price difference.
So in the AE-9 there are 2 Dual and 2 Single opamp right?
Can I put x4 Dual or I'm gonna fry the soundcard? D:
Also confused so your not the only one.
From my limited or maybe incorrect understanding of it Timber wolf meant
Single X 2 for $70
Dual x 2 for $130
and then add $20 for the extension x 2 making it $220
I could be wrong so perhaps wait for one of the others to confirm it, last thing on this planet you want to do is fry a £300 sound card let alone $220 dollars of Addons or worse watch $500+ sound equipment in smoke !
