  1. Help i bought new headphones and they dont sound the same

    Eh if the mobo's output impedance is 30 ohms and the HD668B 50, that doesn't spell good.
  2. Is FLAC Music Worth It?

    If you have resolving headphones you can definitely hear a difference if you listen analytically. But saying you can hear a significant difference with just a M50x is just placebo.
  3. Is FLAC Music Worth It?

    The quality of mastering/mixing or anything that happens in the studio is far more important than file formats in terms of SQ. That said, if you have a lossless file there's nothing wrong to keep it as it as. Convert to lossy formats like mp3 only if space is a big issue. There is sometimes an audible difference between lossy/lossless but they require critical listening to discern between. Lossy formats for casual listening is fine.
  4. Shiit Lyr 2 VS Valhalla 2

    Class A, AB whatever are the least important factors in SQ
  5. What's up with people reviving old threads?
  6. Help for new earbuds

    So how are they overpriced? It's just your opinion.
  7. Shiit Lyr 2 VS Valhalla 2

    Skip all of them, you're just in time for Magni 3. The darkvoice has warmth in the sense that it burns your house down.
  8. Schiit did some stuff

    The DACs are great, the amps are not bad but the MP seems to be a whole pile of nonsense.
  9. external DAC+AMP for AKG K7XX

    Have you tried disabling sound enhancement in windows? If yes, you might want to try other headphones too. DAC/Amps don't affect the sound as much as headphones so you might not be liking the sound sig of the AKGs, not the onboard audio.
  10. external DAC+AMP for AKG K7XX

    IMO an important part of this hobby is training your ears, Not possible to appreciate an amp upgrade without the former.
  11. Is your room treated? Don't get the ATH-M50x.
  12. external DAC+AMP for AKG K7XX

    Yup that would work fine for PC and PS4 audio.
  13. external DAC+AMP for AKG K7XX

    Input switches are usually on the DAC, in this case the Modi 2. Speaking of it, only the Modi 2 Uber and Modi 2 Multibit have optical inputs and they cost $50 and $150 more respectively. The normal Modi 2 only has a single USB input.
  14. external DAC+AMP for AKG K7XX

    Optical mobo might be worse with more jitter and you can bypass the internal audio using ASIO drivers available on their website. EDIT: Just to note, their drivers don't work on Windows 10 so you'd have to use ASIO4ALL

    Not really an IEM guy but GR07s seem to be well-received. Not sure about their relative value though.
