I was questioning myself why would you use topping e30 II instead of the node x!!! Well done.Fixed my issue with the Standby.
The Bluesound Node X doesnt go into stand by and the digital ports are active all the time. That's why the node doesn't go to stand by.
The Node X has a new DAC (ESS Sabre) and competing witht he Topping E30 II, the DAC of the Node X wins for me. So, I unplugged the E30 II, not needing it anymore.
That makes no sense. ESS is just a company that makes DAC chips. They make tons of DAC chips, some of which are SOTA and others that are not especially with how performance has increased in the last years.Yeah, absolute great chip the NODE X is using. ESS Sabre.
Next thing I'll do is hook up two mono power amps and I'm happy
Why would you use a DAC that is 5x more with no audible performance difference at all? The NodeX won't be better than the Topping; in fact it might be worse.
Their entire "conversation" makes literally 0 sense at all as the E30 II has already SOTA performance so NO OTHER DAC would offer any sonic benefit. Therefore it would need to be based around the additional features offered that someone needed/wanted in order to justify paying more.Why compare with a product that costs more than 5 times more than the E30 ll?
Do you have another DAC with sample rate display to try and see if it's the DAC not registering sample rate correctly, or your iPad not delivering the music correctly via USB?Don't know if this is discussed before. I just got this DAC and have a weird issue. I attach an iPad through USB. I play an Apple Music Atmos track, it registers 44kHz. I then play something I know is in hi-res and see 192 kHz. I go back to the atmos track and it now registers 192kHz. Any ideas what is happening?
My experience with the same hw setup and Qobuz is no limits up to 24/96 (which is the max resolution/sample ratio I set up in the Qobuz app)I used the Apple USB adapter and only got 48 bits. I was in a bit of rush so I never checked that I had all the iPhone check boxes correct, so may try again.
I used two E30s for a while, but when the E30 ll was released, I immediately purchased it and compared the sound quality. The E30ll recognized a definite evolution in terms of sound quality.hello everyone
I have a topping e30, a mini pc with daphile installed, a rega brio amplifier, triangle borea 03 speakers and a qobuz. I have used the e30 with a usb charging adapter for a long time. I did not like the sound very much. bass sounds were insufficient, there were missing trebles. sound was not solid. Then I started using powerbank, a lot of things improved. But I read in some forums that using power bank is not correct. What can you say about this?
allo shanti, ifi power x , topping p50 all these are very expensive. I don't want to spend money on them. Also, I'm not sure they will solve the problem for sure. There are many unclear and confusing articles on the forums about them. I think it would be more appropriate to replace the dac
If I switch from e30 to e30 ii, will the power supply problem be solved completely. Will the bass sounds get stronger, will the sound be bodied, will it gain depth and breadth? Will I be able to use the usb charging adapter without problems?
Or instead of the e30 ii, which other dac that does not have a power supply problem can you recommend. For example, how about e50, e70, e70v, or one of the slms dacs
Thank youBir süre iki E30 kullandım, ancak E30 ll serbest bırakıldığında hemen satın aldım ve ses kalitesini karşılaştırdım. E30ll, ses kalitesi açısından kesin bir evrim tanımıştır.
İki E50'm de var, ancak MQA ve dengeli bağlantılar gerekmiyorsa E30 ll'yi tercih edin.
