    FiiO E10K suitable for Hifiman Sundara?

    Right now I own Fiio E10k, SMSL 10th Sanskrit Mk2 + SMSL SP200. I owned the Aune X1s 10th Anniversary in the past. The Fiio E10k is great for low budget headphones in the 100€ range. For everything above it falls very flat in the soundstage, detail and timbre department. I would go for a Fiio K5...

    How do you fix electrical interference from motherboard?

    I used RCA to XLR because on the SMSL SP200 review from Amir, he said that XLR input can somehow help fix grounding issues. I also have used RCA input on my SP200 via Setup3 :(

    How do you fix electrical interference from motherboard?

    I have used the amp somewhere else, look at number 3). When the chain is connected to my laptop, there is no interference. My DAC is connected to the SMSL SP200 via RCA to XLR cable. Im so sad that I have to even care about TOSLINK, its 2020 and USB doesnt even work without issues :(

    Guys I need a quick sanity check. My current setup: SMSL Sanskrit 10th MK2 -> SMSL SP200 -> Focal Elegia. Does this song (Spotify) have poor audio? Im very bad at describing audio related things, but I feel like the upper frequencies are bloated. Can anyone please help? :cry:

    Aune X1s <-> X7s Amp performance?

    Update: The Aune X1s amp is horrible compared to SP200. It colors the sound warmly, nearly 1 dimensional soundstage, bad imaging/depth, undefined and low texture, no details. Still better than Fiio E10k...

    Focal Clear vs DT1990, which one?

    "Would have been better off with a DT1770", yeah sorry to have misintepreted you lol, totally "sorry". So ignorant about the fact, that I had the DT1990 beforehand and compared them A/B, because you did not read through my links and then still recommended me a DT1770, which is obviously inferior...

    Focal Clear vs DT1990, which one?

    If you would have read through those 3 links I have mentioned, then you would knew I had the DT1990 for several months. You are right, in terms of technicalities, there isnt much of a difference between DT1990 and the other midtier options. I had the HD58X, HD598, DT990 and DT1990. The only...

    Focal Clear vs DT1990, which one?

    I dont know if you guys even read through those 3 links I have posted. I think in terms of technicalities between elegia and aeon closed, there isnt much of a difference, just the FR and personal taste. I dont know your experience with Focal Elegia, I can only hope you had a good seal or the...

    Focal Clear vs DT1990, which one?

    I have a good seal and im using eq, while you were listening to it at some event with suboptimal conditions. The elegia is several classes above the dt1990 and stomps it in everything amd anything. But yeah, have fun with your "can jam" impression and your dt1770
