Hello fellow Hi-Fi'ers, I purchased my Ultrasone Edition 9's (#606) with the ALO audio upgrade/ 18g silver and copper 6ft burned in on a Frydaddy for 3days; I am using the Creative soundblaster X-fi Fatal1ty champion series sound card playing 16bit 96 KHz media files.
SO! The help I would so desperatly love from Hi-Fi fans would be suggestions/advice/products to improve my audio setup.
Thank You Everyone; I cant wait to see what is posted... If anyone would enjoy to contact me directly via Email (email@example.com)
Good news is, almost every head fi'er can help you to improve your set up. Bad news is its not exactly going to be cheap. From what I can see, you are definitely missing high quality amplification that your high end headphones deserve. The soundcard should enough for now ( DAC isn't going to help much in comparison to a better amp, considering your soundcard is rather high end) I doubt that the amp inside your pc is on par with the rest of your setup. There is a thread which listed the edition 9 owner's amps.
edit: I just realized that considering the amount of money you already spent on your headphones, an amp isn't going to be expensive for you.
