lol, and someone even made a "Reputation" comment: "Use the force, Alchemist. Electrostatic force."

I think we've had enough fun, though. Let's at least try and get back on topic.

Hey yeah, didn't someone want help choosing an amp and/or dac?  Haha.

If I ever get a chance to try Stax, I will do so, and I'll write a personal message to MA, just for that pic, haha!

Yeah still here, getting a laugh out of your responses.

I've played around with the Foobar2000 output settings and noticed what I think is a slight change improvement the audio quality, although that may just be placebo effect. I also noticed some static from events such as scrolling in a web page so I'm going to take the onboard audio out of the equation and go with a DAC. I've got an Fiio E10K on order, so we'll see how well it cleans everything up.

You might find it improves matters but don't expect wonders. We'll see :)
