Anyways for mine to work I just opened up "sounds and devices" in control panel, then click advanced in device volume, then click advanced again and check the digital i/o box. Mine is running through a mono 1/8 to rca and digital coax atm and working fine. I'm using the foobar asio.

Btw Aura if you are ever down near St Louis send me a message. You can stop by and try the shanling ph100 out. It made my 7 year old sony mdr-cd780 sound pretty close to the ad700's .

Edit: @ Gollie make sure your dac can handle whatever signal the soundblaster/foobar is throwing at it. Mines set to 96khz atm. You might have yours set high with the resampler and maybe the dac can only take 44.1khz or something.
Thanks for your help but the Auzen Prelude has a little different options from the Creative brand cards. Maybe Joel, Soloz or Aura can give me a hand with this one?

I stayed up way late trying to figure this one out. Bit-perfect sounds very good, but I don't want to miss out on anything naw-mein!

bit-matched is about the best for audio phile quality listening, the other features are just mathematicl algorithms used to try and make things sound better, but I'm sure you have a personal horde of lossless audio, so just keep it on bit-matched playback, in audio creation mode.

Hey Azazel, sorry about my lack of communication regarding the Shanling and the DAC, I meant to get back to you a while ago.

The guy who was supposed to bring the Shanling to the meet actually loaned it out about a week beforehand, so I never got a chance to listen to it. From what hear, Shanling is underrated and makes solid components.

There is a tiny bit of discussion of a possible mini-meet is southern IL/Iowa, that might work well for you if you'd like to get to a meet. Usually my father and I end up in St. Louis for Cardinals vs. Cubs, I'll let you know if we decide to go there this spring/summer.

Hope you're enjoying the current rig .

My dac just came in! I had a stroke of good luck also. I ended up with a Citypulse DAC DA7.2x II with tcxo for the price of the zhaolu. It sounds really good to me. I have the ad700's hooked to the built-in amp and the K701+shanling on the fixed out and inside the drawer still. I read the bass opens up through the dac itself after 100 hours so I'll listen to the k701's again in 4 days. Then they go back in solitary till Thanksgiving lol.

I have the Prelude and use digital out, ASIO does not work when using digital out if you use the native Auzentech ASIO. It works great with ASIO4ALL though, which is pretty much the same as the native ASIO. Just install ASIO4ALL and depending on which media player you use, you have to tell it which channels to output to,with J River products, you set the channel offset to 8, foobar, you select the digital output from within the ASIO settings.

EDIT: I've also sent a help request a few months back and the developers also said that there is no way to get the digital to work with the native ASIO.

Shipping to UK on said ATH's would be?

And, how do they compare to HD555's ?
post #5169 of 37819
a700s are a bit heavier on the bass as compared to the HD555s I would figure... also closed back in comparison to open backed...
