BTW:

My pal "Orcin" at head-fi.org just got the donated Woo Audio amps in for the meet.

He's already posting pics:

...

In this shot, the two pieces sitting on top of the CDP are actually 1 single amp with a seperate power supply:



...



...

Pretty tasty looking bits there.

Bad thing about it is ... they are all available for sale (at a good discount and with no shipping cost) at the meet.

Has anyone gone from a X-Fi (Creative Labs) to the Auzentech Prelude and noticed a difference? I'm thinking about getting rid of mine for the more audiophile friendly Prelude. After I sell my card (which has the 5.25" bay) I would probably only be out of $40 to get a Prelude.

If your using only the digital output there will no difference at all, unless you want to use DTS or DD output. I had an older XtremeMusic a while back and when I upgraded to the prelude, the analogue outputs sounded much better with the Prelude. Another advantage is that the Prelude's drivers are much better now and a linux driver is also in the works if your interested in that perhaps .

using the analog outs the prelude is on par or slightly better than a modded xtrememusic

Regarding the Millet amps.

I have seen some people confuse the Starving Student, which some have called the Millet Mini with the Millet Hybrid MiniMax. They are completely different.

There was the original Millet Hybird, which the Millet Hybird Max took all the 'best' and most common upgrades and put them all on one board so it would be cheaper and easier to build. This amp has the options of either BJC or Mosfet output stage.
The Millet Hybrid MiniMax is based on the Max and has been 'shrunk' with a few more tweaks. It is limited to the bjc output stage and is harder to fit boutique caps, but is designed to be smaller.
Now, the starving student is a point to point amp that can be built for as little as $30, completely different from Max or MiniMax

I went from an X-Fi ExtremeGamer to the X-Fi prelude, but looking back the money would have better been invested in a quality DAC... in all seriousness I love the card, and I do find it better sounding in terms of the nanalog ports then the Xtremegamer, but a DAC would still sound better yet, something like a constantine/paradisea... but even then a simple alien DAC competes nicely....

When I had to use my XFI music for temp after getting the clear spdif adaptor broken inside the digital out of my prelude.

I notice the diffents and it was enough to annoy me. I didnt like the way my old XFI XM sound when I went to use it temp because i could tell off the back that it didnt sound right. Funny thing I ended up taking it out and using my A2zs instead.

Because I was used to the LMA4562 Opamps as well as my OPA627Au opamps I had installed before putting the LMA4562 in to send the card off fore repair.

It be a waste if you just doing it for the opamps alone and or the swapable socket and your coming from a XFI card and didnt use Digital.

If you skilled enough with tools, you could just attach some LMA4562's or OPA627/Op637 your self to your XFI card. or even a swapable Dip socket.

So i sold my D2000's-

They were excellent headphones, but I had one too many headphones, and I thought I could stand to loose a pair. [202's, SE530s, HD580s, sony md's, D2000's, etc. etc.]

I'm an addict to the sennheiser sound. so clean, excellent soundstage, everything has its places with the senn's. and with the MKIII, what bryan calls my "money pair". so, DT770's for bangin' beats around campus, HD580's for relaxing after a day earning grants for san diego ;]. New tubes should be coming in the mail today C6Q6's.



Anyone know where i can get HD580 pads on the cheap? 40$ is step, and the previous owner... well, his head wasn't to clean lol. its kinda gross tbh.
