    HIDIZS S8 USB-C Headphone Adapter Review

    I'd fix my PC first if it had latency issues;)

    HIDIZS S8 USB-C Headphone Adapter Review

    What compatibility issue are you referring to? As long as your PC is Win10 and not screwed up in terms of audio drivers, it works fine. The S8 driver listed in that Hidizs link is the same one as the Tempotec version (you can see if you downloaded the file, the folder name is tempotec sonata)...

    Which DAC measurements do you like to see next?

    implementation is a thing, sadly. I've also bought some cheapo USB DAC from china, performance was decent but it had 12ohm OI or so, definitely not ideal. basically if I were to go back, I'd spent more for something proven rather than gambling on these stuff (unless you like testing new toys)

    JDS Labs Atom DAC Review

    ooh, finally a nice stacking combo for the amp I can't wait to see all the impressions come out from dudes with "golden ears" saying that the DAC sounds "dead" and "has no dynamics":cool::cool:

    Zishan, one of the earlier hyped cheap DAP/amp with their Zishan Z1 made a USB-DAC, the U1: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001111401655.html I know a lot of stuff has come out and performed much better than the Z1, but I'm still intrigued by this since they still retain their amateur DIY...

    I don't suppose you have the Sparrow as well:D

    AKG K371 Impressions

    "very bassy" and "you'll like it if you're a basshead", now that's something I'd never thought I hear about the K371. metal571 and wheezy reviewed these, much in line with what I heard of the K371.

    HIDIZS S8 USB-C Headphone Adapter Review

    Can they clarify on how it is not "transparent"? I'd like to hear their reasoning.

    HIDIZS S8 USB-C Headphone Adapter Review

    Ah, glad Tempotec is finally acknowledging this device actually exists then. Hopefully they refine the volume button step for a next firmware if there will be one. Haven't had much issue with it on my Win10 PC other than that.

    Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Motherboard Audio Review

    more power from the case headphone output vs the rear IO, that really seems counter-intuitive to me. Why not just make them both the same. to be fair, the high output impedance makes it a moot point, since only powered speakers will do fine on it?

    Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Motherboard Audio Review

    78ohm output impedance, sounds about right. I measured around 80ohm out of my own Asus B350 Prime Plus (they only advertise the bare minimum of shielding, separate left/right PCB layers and Japanese capacitors, so wasn't expecting much). The sad thing is that the DAC is Realtek ALC887...

    AKG K371 Impressions

    just saw that the site was down, any idea what happened? also, does this mean we can expect a K371 modding guide:D

    Burson FUN Headphone Amp Review

    Straightforward, but some are wildly oblivious to nuance or are simply trying to find faults in everything that is nothing less than perfect. Objectivity to the extreme, I suppose. Or maybe just being an asshat, who knows

    Which DAC measurements do you like to see next?

    was looking around for potential NX4 competitor, also just found out about the Hip DAC. Power output wise, it seems like it'll be really good, but I saw someone complaining about hiss with sensitive IEMs which worries me a bit. Hoping amir can get a unit in for measurements

    Earstudio HUD100 Portable Headphone DAC & Amp Review

    Glad to see the HUD100 still maintains the company's track record, even though it is a bit pricey considering today's market no worries Amir, I'm sure lots of people understand that when you "recommend" something, its not an absolute and that it depends on preference/requirements.
