    Topping DX7 Pro DAC and Headphone Amp Reviewed

    You tried a different cable or a different USB port on your computer yet ? I have such an issue with one of my computer's USB ports as its a little loose. I previously had a similar issue which turned out to be a spotty USB cable with intermittent issues.

    Best Sounds for $400-$600 budget DAC/AMP

    If you look at the impedance and phase of the headphone of the Aeon Closed, it doesn't change at all, completely flat. So it should not be affected https://www.stereophile.com/content/mrspeakers-aeon-closed-back-headphones-measurements Chances are, what you heard was really just the A50...

    Best Sounds for $400-$600 budget DAC/AMP

    The Aeon a planar magnetic headphone. As far as things go, the vast majority of planars are not affected by the output impedance of their plugged in sources. The Oppo's were the rare exceptions.

    Best Sounds for $400-$600 budget DAC/AMP

    You didn't say you were talking about Canadian currency in your budget. But you can get the DX7Pro for close to CAN$700 whenever there is a sale. Nope, the DX7S is not nearly as refined as the 7Pro.

    DX7Pro. It basically has everything you are looking at and more.

    WolfX700 Measurement of Topping L30 Headphone Amp

    I think it will be easier to enable the transformer with a removable adapter cable like what most laptop power adapters have. That will be way easier to mount at the end point for users as they can change the cable length as well as socket end if they need to. Its the same issue I have the JDS...

    Desktop Active Speaker Recommendations

    Maybe its the ambient noise in my room. I almost never use it in the evenings when its a lot quieter. Possibly that's why I don't pick up the hiss. My background is probably noisier than the hiss. Edit : To add, I just tried it and yes, there is a hiss but not something I can hear / pick up...

    Desktop Active Speaker Recommendations

    I run the 306p too. But I don't have any obvious hiss at about 3~4 feet. Try turning down its volume dial 2 notches. Mine is set at around that as I don't need the full power anyway.

    Desktop Active Speaker Recommendations

    I run the 306P with the Khadas Tone Board mostly, though sometimes I connect it to my balanced DAC. They are definitely not what I would call desktop, unless you have a decently big desktop ! (Check the dimensions ...they are significantly bigger than the 305p !) That being said, they have...

    Review and Measurements of E1DA 9038S BAL Portable DAC & Amp

    Is it from the wires or from the circuit board? If its from the board, perhaps can look at shielding in the form of high frequency shield meshes. The are pretty inexpensive in raw cloth mesh form. Some use it to shield smart cards and RFID chips from unauthorized tapping. Perhaps you can...

    WolfX700 Measurement of Topping L30 Headphone Amp

    If you're coming from the JDS Atom, its probably the difference in volume outputs while tested. On IEMs, even a 0.3~0.5 dB difference can make a noticeable difference. Something you cannot discern by hand or ear accurately. Unless you physically match the output voltage values with a...

    Foobar or JRiver

    I think a good solution would include search terms, not just artistes + composers + year Since listing more than 1 artiste as separate terms seems to be not available. I've not seen anything that has the option of creating columns in the sorting that allows for custom search terms though.

    Foobar or JRiver

    A friend has 27 recordings of Beethoven's Violin Concerto. I have 6 versions of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. The tagging with separate artistes, composers, years become very important. Sometimes, even that fails as you may have 1 artiste with 2 versions of the same composition with...

    Sabaj D5 - Owners' Thread

    Actually under the JAS list of brands and companies, SABAJ is registered under its parent company Shuangmusanlin. Or otherwise better known as SMSL. https://www.jas-audio.or.jp/english/hi-res-logo-en/use-situation-en The odd thing is that the list seems a bit backdated as I cannot find...

    Is COVID strategy moving towards herd-immunity?!

    Guess you don't quite get the idea that the virus mutates, and mutates quite rapidly as we see multiple identifiable strains from different continents in the space of 6~7 months. As I explained in my previous reply to the idea of herd immunity, 70% population infection rates that needs to be...

    So you're will be perfectly fine if it hits and "martyrs" say 10% of your immediate family and friends ? Or even yourself for the "greater good" ??
