The "what audio equipment did you buy/get today" thread [56k warning!!] - Page 245

post #2441 of 3150
Well I had to return my Modi frown.gif After over a week of use I unplugged it to move some stuff around on my desk and started getting a really bad screeching sound when I moved my mouse and all that. Ground Loop issue? Kinda dumb how it just started out of no where, I hope it doesn't do it with the new one otherwise I'll probably get that Wyrd and see if that fixes anything.

What do you guys do for ground loop issues if you have any? Mine was coming from the USB but my Topping VX1 doesn't have any issues.

I think I tried just about everything. I ended up being positive it was just the Modi because my VX1 has a built in DAC but it's dead silent. It has it's own power source though so i wasn't sure if that's why or what the deal was. Tried the DAC on a powered usb hub and that didn't work either. Tried a different computer as well and the same thing happened :\ Oh well, free warranty. We'll see what happens when I get it back.

I bought Audio GD Master 7 DAC today!
Will be delivered this week biggrin.gif
Very excited to see wether an expensive DAC is worth it or not.

I don't know if anyone here is from Canada and would like some good speakers, the Simple Audio Listen's are 150$ are now 200$ on NCIX... http://www.ncix.com/detail/simple-audio-listen-stereo-speakers-95-92217-1205.htm

I bought em at 150$ and I'm using them in my living room for my TV, they beat the crap out of any soundbar at 150$

Kind off a bummer that you can't seem to buy them for anything near that price in Europe tho. And that Corsair bought them...

yup, I find them so impressive to be honest. At that price, it's almost silly not to get a pair.
