This has been posted before (I think by Chipp) ... but it's worth another nod since the recordings are so very fine for benchmark listening.


Free Ultrasone Demo CD


Also, ... other than the direct download link above, here's the permalink for it's mention at head-fi: Thread

...

BTW ... listening to Nick Drake at the moment ... "The Thoughts of Mary Jane" from his album, "Five Leaves Left" ... (oh *****3!!) now Simon and Garfunkel is cueing up! ... gotta love Media Jukebox )

It's a goodie. I was actually listening to some of the pipe organ tracks today.

You are on the upgrade fast track my friend.

I'll be upgrading my audio equipment once I graduate and start pulling in some real cash. 6 weeks and counting.

Do you still have the cMoy amp or were you just planning on getting it a while back? Planning in using it with the HD580s?

Still got the CMOY, but it's a POS. I've got a Meier Corda Headfive that should be here anyday (actually, it's late...). And the HD580 is more for a compliment to my DT770s than an upgrade for them.

The only issue with the E-MU is that you may have trouble finding it on sale, apparently retailers have stopped gouging the price of it. Then again, you're still in the process of considering DAC's, so you have time .
What is the difference between the iBasso D1 and D2? It is portable as where the 0404 USB is not correct?

I read the D2 is an amp/DAC in one. Is this correct? Which is the better option between the D1,D2, and 0404 USB?

I'm starting to get a little pissed... I purchased the headfive from a seller on Head-Fi on March 18th (that's a full 2 weeks ago), who promised he would send it out the next day. After not hearing anything for a while, I sent him a PM asking what was up, and he responded that some things had come up and that he would send it out the next day, with upgraded shipping. This was last tuesday, and I still have not received it, or heard anything from him since last week... I really hope it comes through in the next few days, or I'll have to go through paypal... blech.

I've wanted to hear the D1 myself but haven't had a chance.

The biggest difference between the D1 and D2 is that the D1 can be used as a standalone DAC (has line out) or with it's internal headphone amp; the D2 can only be used as a DAC that feeds it's own internal amp (no line out).

I'm pretty sure that's accurate enough but do some more research. I would like to get a D1, myself so I can feed other amps with it.

Don't know how these compare to the 0404 though ...

I've been trying to research on Head-Fi and other sites how the D1 and D2 compare to the 0404, but so far nothing definitive is popping out.

Thanks for the clarification on the iBrasso DACs.
