I've checked the BHD Pro's ASIO audio latency with Ableton Live DAW software and I'm very impressed with it's latency which is as good as my much more expensive Audient iD14 MkII audio interface. I've tried the Mojo 1's ASIO latency and it's completely unusable in Ableton Live. I'm not trying to diss Mojo 1 again but that's the only other DAC/amp that I've tried using on Ableton Live since Mojo 1 supports ASIO too.I didn't realize they had one until I post the review.
In order to measure linearity (and also IMD and multitone) Amir would have to measure again using TempoTec's ASIO implementation. He measured with his ASIO emulator instead (whatever that is, possibly ASIO4All).Hi,
What about the "Linearity" ?
I'm really intrested in bying this.
So, mine arrived today. Anyone else with one used it with uapp on android?
Hardware volume controls in uapp doesn't work and I'm not sure what the bhd does in terms of startup volume. Does anyone know, does it startup at a preset output level? Default to min or max? Or last position you left it in?
Can adjust hardware vol in Hiby player exclusive mode but that isn't my player of choice. I'm guessing uapp would need tweaking to work with the bhd so will flag it to them anyway but was interested in other users experience
I meant the main differentiator between all these dongles is their ability to drive the headphones you want them to more than any "sound" they may have.Thank for the response about testing k701! Sure everyone's loud is not the same that is sure.
Sorry I did not get what you mean by "power requirement with the dongles" and the "They would have to be really bad to impart a "sound" to anything that they can drive properly(and/or have a high output impedance)"
It should drive the K701 to over 110dB SPL Peak according to Amir's data. Are you sure that there were no additional volume limiters in place and that your audio was mastered to close to 0dBFS Peak?Got my BHD today and I am afraid to say, whilst you can get pretty loud with the K701 its not very loud
I'll double check later. Thought I had all eq off etc but you never knowIt should drive the K701 to over 110dB SPL Peak according to Amir's data. Are you sure that there were no additional volume limiters in place and that your audio was mastered to close to 0dBFS Peak?
Any actual music you know of on tidal that is definitely at a high level if I make sure replay gain etc is off?It should drive the K701 to over 110dB SPL Peak according to Amir's data.

Sorry I don't use Tidal.Any actual music you know of on tidal that is definitely at a high level if I make sure replay gain etc is off?
No need- found a few settings that needed disabling. So @Deckard01 with no EQ or other DSP running it gets the K701 plenty loud for me - I knocked it down 8db in software to be comfortable on most tracks I quickly listened to. So enough to add some EQ in there and by god do the K701 need some EQ when you are loud.Sorry I don't use Tidal.
I'd use UAPP to first play a 60Hz full-scale sine, then measure the output voltage with my multimeter to make sure that I'm getting the full 2V, then play one of my Flacs with known amplitude.
Yup. This is bonkers. (android for me) When you plug the device in you have zero clue what it's volume is set at. The only way to use the thing is to reduce your player's software volume waaay down before hitting play.The main downside from a usability standpoint for me is the lack of support for the phone's volume regulation under iOS combined with the extremely slow action of the built-in volume buttons and the lack of a volume indicator. They have so many levels and every step takes so much time that it takes far over half a minute from zero to max (!).
