    Friend cranked up the volume on HD 600s with Atom amp on high gain

    You hit the nail on the head lmao. I'm slowly getting over it I think. Hate my obsessiveness man

    Friend cranked up the volume on HD 600s with Atom amp on high gain

    That's pretty much what I did. Haha alright I'm not gonna test with higher volume.

    Friend cranked up the volume on HD 600s with Atom amp on high gain

    Thanks for the input. I generated a 16Hz sound here, and I didn't hear anything. Though I didn't really turn up the volume too much. Should I?

    Friend cranked up the volume on HD 600s with Atom amp on high gain

    Yeah, I don't hear anything strange, so you're probably right. I still wanted to know if there's any chance it "degraded" the sound or something in any way. I was hoping someone would chime in with the numbers. Thanks!

    Friend cranked up the volume on HD 600s with Atom amp on high gain

    Hello everyone, I have a question that's been slightly bothering me for no other reason than my obsessiveness. I had a friend over the other day and I was showing him my new headphones and amp, Sennheiser hd 600s and a JDS Labs Atom. We were playing a song on Spotify and I was telling him about...

    Can a Fiio D3(Taishan) drive HD 600s via a JDS Labs Atom?

    Is it being loud enough the only concern? What about "dynamic range"?

    Can a Fiio D3(Taishan) drive HD 600s via a JDS Labs Atom?

    Would the output be enough on low gain? I heard it works best on low gain, so.

    Can a Fiio D3(Taishan) drive HD 600s via a JDS Labs Atom?

    6.3Vrms? Is that the output of the Atom? Does the voltage output of the DAC not matter?

    Can a Fiio D3(Taishan) drive HD 600s via a JDS Labs Atom?

    According to here, the maximum output Vrms of the D3 is 1.39: "Max voltage output at 0 dBFS, VRMS 1,39 Max voltage output at 0 dBFS, dBV 2,87 Max voltage output at 0 dBFS, dBu 5,09" Do you think this is enough? I read somewhere that the output voltage might affect the dynamic range or...

    Can a Fiio D3(Taishan) drive HD 600s via a JDS Labs Atom?

    Thanks for the reply. I am not using anything currently, as I have not received any of the equipment yet. My choices are either using it through the D3 or with my motherboard, z170a msi gaming m5. What I wanted to ask was if the D3 would "hold back" the hd 600s and the Atom, being the "weakest...

    Can a Fiio D3(Taishan) drive HD 600s via a JDS Labs Atom?

    So, I know the JDS Labs Atom is great, but would driving them through the cheap Fiio D3 degrade the sound I get on the HD 600s?

    Questions about motherboard vs. a cheap DAC, double amping, and playing 48khz audio in 44.1khz "playback mode"

    Here's an article for the M7 motherboard, I'm assuming it is the same case for my M5: https://www.msi.com/blog/audio-boost-3-there-is-more-in-life-than-graphics "Even though you have a great gaming headset, it could still sound flat and dull if it isn’t powered properly. The Audio Boost 3...

    Questions about motherboard vs. a cheap DAC, double amping, and playing 48khz audio in 44.1khz "playback mode"

    Isnt that supposed to be used with an Apple device? I'll be using the atom with my PC via my motherboard or an external DAC.

    Questions about motherboard vs. a cheap DAC, double amping, and playing 48khz audio in 44.1khz "playback mode"

    The thing is, I'm getting all of this through a friend who is in the US right now, and I have to get everything at once before I get my hands on them, or else I'd have to pay customs tax and shipping to buy them myself, which would end up doubling the price. So I can't do testing beforehand...
