500+ Head-Fier
Nov 21, 2008
Just an FYI the surface pro works really well as a source device. Battery is of course not great compared to smaller portable devices but the sound quality of the headphone output is really good. Win8 also has DLNA client capability built in. Using the Xbox music app to browse my DLNA server I can stream 24BIT 96K audio and the results sound awesome.
It has a very warm natural sound signature. I'd say it is somewhat similar to the ZuneHD but with more punch in the bass and more volume overall.
The sound from it is exactly what I like devices to sound like, pretty much for the first time ever I do not feel the need to EQ or tweak the audio or use a portable amp coming from a source device.
