    Off topic: what do you guy's prefer? Iems or headphones?

    I have had the U12t since two months and really love them with the leonidas II and now Dx220. My Aeon flow closed and hd650 were not given much love, but was just listening to few songs using Aeon's and wasn't impressed much!

    Headphones and IEMs are very different for me. The same as headphones vs Stereos speakers :)

    I prefer speakers > headphones > iems

    Hi, to oversample a FLAC file to DSD it's mandatory to use the DX220 as external DAC or it can be done with the internal sound card? Thanks!

    Tough question... it depends...

    Ultimate sound quality, price is no object? I guess Headphones
    If I had to choose between both as my ONLY setup, a balance of all the pros and cons and SQ? IEM's
    The ones I choose to hear when I have the chance of one or another (i.e. at home)? Headphones

    Well if you're internal card supports Native DSD, or DSD decoding then you don't need to have dx220 as external dap. I don't know any soundcard that supports dsd512 though.

    But you don't need an amp for offline oversampling, just a powerful enough CPU. If you're doing live conversion then ofcourse you need it.

    Interesting, what you're speaker setup if i may ask? :)

    My dream is to have a house with a dedicated listening room! Right now i use my Dali's for 2ch stereo.

    Same here now, i do think iem is more intimate than headphones. Although i would want to demo a very high-end headphones and experience it.

    Why does wifey not like listening to music? Maybe you should buy some music that's more her taste?

    Wow really. Sorry man.

    Ok, so using Amp8 to trigger the Amp9 for higher gain is good for headphones, but with IEMS as IER-M9, there is definitely noticeable hiss
