Skylake dilemma ! - Page 3

post #21 of 31
My reply was generic because I haven't listened more than a couple realtek-based motherboards integrated audio solutions.
For casual listening (i.e. When working) I use the one of my asrock mobo which is inferior to current 1150 offering, cheap creative headphones (but are those made by AT iirc, comparable to closed HP in the 100-150$ range).

For serious listening I have a USB dac, a dedicated class A amplifier and AT W1000x headphones.

In short, my point is: 6 months pass quick get the best motherboards for all your needs, not focusing on the audio part. Btw yes Sabre is a much better dac chip, although not my favorite.

Low impedance HP require lots of good power.

Not sure if that is sarcasm o.O
Afaik higher the impedance harder the phones are to drive, and beyers are infamous for that, even the 80ohm version does benefit from amping.

Or maybe i didnt quite get what you mean.

I was very serious. Low-impedance phones are easy to drive but requires more power, which opamps do not have. For low i mean very low such as 30 ohm like mines.

I think we consumers of computer products can not be misled. Imagine his colleague buy it and discovering only after the product is defective and that there will be no recall. There is another already reported defect as the question of memories in Skylake. Would you buy a product knowing that even with a software fix this product has intenal defects?

Bugs happen. It had been fixed. I don't understand your point?
