    ...but I could adjust it with the software dsd player, right?

    I dont have any DSD files, only PCM. Hmm...this is very interesting.

    Yes, however to enable volume adjustment on DSD playing, DSD stream will be converted to PCM stream for digital signal processing then converted back to dsd again. So technically you are not playing the original DSD file.

    Hey everyone.
    I just got my hands on HD800S last week and this unit is on the top of the (short) list.
    Can anyone speak on this pairing.
    Also, I have a set of E-MU Treak's, if anyone has info on these, that would be appreciated.
    Lastly, does anyone use this as a standalone unit?
    One more for the road: Does anyone regret their purchase?!

    Thanks a ton

    I use it with my Denon 7200 (bio-cellulose drivers as well). I quite like it, the built-in amp is very decent. Maybe not as powerful to run HD800s, but I cannot comment on that as I don't have them. But the built in EQ is very very thorough, it might be useful with HD800s if you ever want to tune the sound to your liking (add more bass or tame any kind of peaks).

    The AMP section is more than powerful enough to drive the HD800 which I have.

    I see some people are using an aftermarket power plug. Are there any recommended ones ?

    Unless you are talking about the removable power cord for the external power supply, I think you would need to replace the entire power supply. I'm not sure how much benefit you would get by doing this though. RME is pretty meticulous in there engineering.

    You could look at a linear power supply, which may make a difference. I use this linear ps for a few of my dacs and have been happy with it. https://www.hdplex.com/hdplex-fanless-200w-linear-power-supply-for-pc-audio-and-ce-device.html

    wow i didn't know they were that pricey. ill give it a long listen first, thanks. https://www.vinnierossi.com/mini/ saw this one too.

    The thing I like about the HDPlex 200 watt power supply is the 5 independent DC rails it has. It has a 2 - 5 vdc, 12 vdc, 19 vdc, and a variable 5 - 19 vdc rail. So you can have 5 devices being powered by it at the same time.

    You can pickup a linear power supply on ebay for inexpensive. Zero Zone seems to make some nice ones for a fair price. https://www.ebay.com/itm/ZEROZONE-1...559186?hash=item1a129efd92:g:98IAAOSwzvlW96K~
