    “some amps run out of current first and some run out of voltage first” get me confused.

    Thank you for your patient answers! This has given me a deeper understanding of the electrical phenomena that occur when driving headphones and has made me more impressed with the scientific and objective measurement methods of this website, which has really opened many people's eyes! But...

    “some amps run out of current first and some run out of voltage first” get me confused.

    Thank you for your patient answer. Your reasoning is clear, the metaphors are vivid, and the details are rich. You have explained various obscure concepts and theories as much as possible, which also clarifies my thinking. I understand well the situation of overload due to too large an output...

    Question about graph of THD+N Ratio vs Measured Level

    Oh I see. My Audient's line-in will get clipped when I turn knob to about 11'o clock with 0 dbfs sinewave playing. Does that mean for some weaker sound from mic, it still got the ability to zoom up the signal?

    Question about graph of THD+N Ratio vs Measured Level

    Thank you for your answer, it opened up my mind. But I don't fully understand that why analog-to-digital converter is beyond the preamp for recording... I thought it was "sonic wave-pre amp-adc-digital signal" ...

    Question about graph of THD+N Ratio vs Measured Level

    Thank you for your quick and efficient answer! Does this mean that the Apple USB Dongle will never output a severely distorted signal? It just turns out that it's possible that the volume isn't loud enough, right?

    Question about graph of THD+N Ratio vs Measured Level

    Hello friends! I've read a lot of reviews about audio devices, and I've found that some devices can get the power output to a level where THD+N rises dramatically, while others cannot, as shown in the figure. Then the question arises: how to overload the output of the device? Is it simply a...

    When would headphones generate clipped sound because of insufficient power?

    Thank you very much for your patience! Now that my opinion on this matter is gradually clear, I hope to be as objective and knowledgeable geek as you are!

    “some amps run out of current first and some run out of voltage first” get me confused.

    Hello everyone! In nwavguy's blog, I came across this passage: However, there is no mathematical calculation process to substantiate this statement, leading to my confusion about when distortion occurs and when the sound is simply too low. I would simply think that if the amplifier power is...

    When would headphones generate clipped sound because of insufficient power?

    That sound really clear to blow cloud out of mind. Never thought of so many difference between devices. Thank you for your patience. I usually listen to some heavily compressed mainstream music under 80 db with my 300 ohms headphones through stuff like apple adapter and everything seems to be...

    When would headphones generate clipped sound because of insufficient power?

    Thanks for explanation. I have never considered that there are so many hidden tiny tech specifics of a little cute adapter.

    When would headphones generate clipped sound because of insufficient power?

    Sorry for my mistake of calling spectrum a "scope". Your explanation of voltage-boosting power supply definitely expand my knowledge of audio gear.

    When would headphones generate clipped sound because of insufficient power?

    Yeah that's true. But I wonder when running out of volume, under which kind of condition would sound get clipped. If 1khz 0dbfs sine wave did not get clipped through lightning to 3.5mm adapter, does that mean any kind of sound won't get clipped?

    When would headphones generate clipped sound because of insufficient power?

    We know that when the source doesn't have enough voltage and/or current to meet the peak demands of the music, it clips off the peaks. I made an experiment with my hd600. Plugged into Audient ID14 MKII, played 1khz sinewave at max volume while monitoring the sound generated by hd600 with an...
