    Alright thanks but I wonder why do some of cables have plugs with 2 poles then? For example this
    US $18.46 31%OFF | Replacement Cable for Hifiman HE400S HE-400I HE560 HE-350 HE1000 V2 Headphone 3.5mm male 6.35mm to 2x 2.5mm Male Audio HIFI cord

    Also I wonder why does ibasso only support 384khz if Ak4493 officially support 768khz. It quite doesn't match up with sprcs of the dac

    Okay so for your first question. Balanced means you have a hot and a cold signal. (Two times the same signal, only that one is phase inverted)
    You can either run those two signal over separate cables to two separate connectors, or it can be one cable with two twisted strands and instead of two separate connectors you got one connector which has enough contacts to function as a balanced connector.

    And for your second question, I don't know about that, but let's be serious, no one needs 768khz. They also claim to have support for 256x dsd when in reality it's only 128x since the dsd is not really native but DSD over PCM which naturally only has 128x.

    Also my onplus 6t has usb type C which is USB 2.0 standard. I wonder does it have enough juice to power this dongle

    Without a problem
  6. artpiggo
    It is interchangeable without problem.
  7. senegalas

  8. artpiggo

    There is Odyssey with realtek chip like the hidiz s1 perhaps. But no
    Audeze on the list. Maybe there is a restriction imposed on the list.
    Some people appear to prefer cypher cable V2 over V1 and others vice versa.
    Anker adapter can make the lightning connection change into usbC.

    Thread heading does say lets find the best.

    That's why I bought the CL one. The sonata has nothing and beats higher priced stuff.

    Hmm it o
    Is a bit weird that thry released this dc01 but you can't buy it anywhere. I bought mine from some random European shop and still don't have it in stock and only is gonna have on 08/20 (supposedly) and now changed to 08/30 which is weird
