atm i enjoy my cheap NOS-DAC with 4x philips TDA1543's in parallel i got from ebay, which has no sharp imaging at all compared to modern DAC's, but it has some nice relaxed non-fatiguing tonality, i guess you also get with tube Amps.
And one couldn't EQ for this effect, it's something special - so if you want to get a quick experience with what all the NOS-fuzz is about: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Muse-HI-FI-DIR9001-4X-TDA1543-parallel-connection-NOS-DAC-BOARD/142048523952?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D37577%26meid%3D000e28255a9547c188348321c3727f00%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D322111242821

(you'd only need a 9V DC wallwart)

this is the actual thing for convenience:

I watched a video on it though, and Audioquest showed how they improved over 1.2 with Black 1.5.

I disagree with the Modi 2 Uber recommendation, if its just for headphones, he might as well spend the extra $75 and just grab the modi multibit. I hate my Modi 2... I'll sell it to anyone for $50 just hit me up haha. It ameks everything harsh, I definitely need something better for my D2000's.

If you dont like the modi 2 uber, you wont like the multibit any better.

The multibit technology only makes a marginal difference in sound quality.

Oh and if you are interested, there is a TTVJ on head-fi for a reasonable price. http://www.head-fi.org/t/815535/ttvj-slim-portable-headphone-amplifier-non-dac-price-dropped

It is probably one of the best portable amps I have heard, and I would think it would suit your travel needs perfectly.

At first, I'd sorta concluded it was due to my speakers being hooked up to two separate sources. Removing one (took off the Balanced XLR cables and left only the RCA's for the HPA4. The audio distortion still persisted. Then concluded that it was due to inferior USB cable (used the one that came with the HPA4), tried using a Straight Wire audiophile grade cable and still the noise persisted.

I was on the verge of throwing up my hands when I'd stumbled upon ferrite chokes, I'd put two on the power cable for my PSU and was quite surprised that the audio distortion faded. At the same time, I'd connected my speakers (each has its own power cable) to a Castle line conditioner which a bud of mine had given me. All these fixes resulted in distortion free speakers when I play games and listen to music. Sometimes, these fixes can be from quite far afield and one would not have thought of it....I sure as heck didn't, but talking to a guy who sells cables and accessories resulted in this 'find'. My bud was with me then, he simply offered his unused Castle line conditioner for free........even brought it all the way to my house. Needless to say, I took him out for a sumptuous lunch that day.biggrin.gif

And just to add to this, I get a lot of audio noise as well.

I just ripped out the grounding pin on the power cable for my amp, and now there is no noise at all.

What about the horrific moment when some go back to their Beats and turn on some sort of BassBoozzzt tongue.gif?

Hi all, I am looking at picking up the Marantz HD- DAC1 https://www.amazon.com/Marantz-HD--DAC1High-Definition-Headphone/dp/B00NTR459S/ref=sr_1_18?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1470430756&sr=8-18&keywords=headphone+amplifier+dac&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011 and wanted to see if any of you thought anything about it one way or another.

I am looking at this vs the Denon Denon DA-300USB https://www.amazon.com/Denon-DA-300USB-Resolution-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B00IAVRW5M/ref=sr_1_41?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1470430691&sr=8-41&keywords=headphone+amplifier+dac&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011 Now the Denon is much much cheaper but the Marantz seems like something that should be on my desk.

@thuNDa @caenlen thanks for the replies on the Sanskrit. I have often heard the Modi being described as sharp and I'm not a huge fan of overly sharp sound profiles so the Sanskrit sounds preferable.

@pez one thing I found with the Tung Sol and Valvo tubes is the rolled off treble and laid back HD650 sound is a little less obvious now. When trying some electronica and then drum and bass I noticed there's a lot of treble activity that didn't stand out to me on the O2. I'll have to see what happens with the Siemens' tube in there.

I'm also keen to see how radically different that Mullard 6080 actually is because after some reading its meant to be almost the polar opposite to the Tung Sol 5998 smile.gif .

Edit: just bought one online and should be here in a week or so wink.gif .

I assumed it was a new sound all on its own because uses a new DAC chip on the 5xxx series instead 4xxx series in current Modi's. I was just stabbing in the dark though.

And this is arguably why I haven't listened to anything higher end. Can't truly crave something better than what one has if you've never heard it ~_^

NNNNNNnnnnope.

Common mistake.

80% of the DACs sound signature is going to come from the output stage.

5% comes from the dac chip choice. And another 15% comes from the power supply.

If you are uber rich (and crazy), then you could also start using transformers to do some really interesting things and take the sound quality even higher still.

@tjjangel and halflife

I am moving to Ireland permanently, I hope to find a job after I get my PhD. As much as I love the 4D headphones (and I do) they are bulky, and ugly, and light up blue on the sides (I am not getting laid with that crap if a girl walks by my dorm and sees me wearing it) so those are going back for a refund. Also, the only reason I have been going crazy on headphone swapping again lately is its a stress reliever for me, as I mentioned a long time ago I grew up in a toxic family, and my half-sister, yes I refer to her as half, rumors are she started making meth again, and hearing my Dad cuss every damn day for the last twenty year sof my life through these thin walls, and he still gives her money for her cigs and stuff (even though when i was sick in 2005 from salmonella poisoning he couldn't buy me meds cause too pricey), thats only tip of iceberg, needless to say thats only reason I am the way I am, it distracts me from reality. Once I get settled in Ireland, I will do much better.

Oh good. Someone who was smart enough to get away from their piss poor family.

I deal with a lot of bad family cases and most people just choose to stick around for the abuse. Glad to hear you are getting the FO.


Anyways, definitely take the D2Ks.

Whats holding you back is your dac and your amp.

This is gonna sound a bit crazy, but I would get an aune T1 used and then get a few tubes to play around with.

The tube rolling will allow you to better tune the system, so it will give you a lot of experience and help you figure out what you really like and dont like.

Its also pretty darn small and will be a very easy system to move from place to place.
