    Odac is very quiet

    I'm assuming your on Windows 10. Make sure your master volume is maxed, then check the volume mixer (right click on your volume icon on the taskbar and select "Volume Mixer") and make sure the application your trying to play audio with is not turned down or muted.
  2. How goes it in the audio bunker? Does head-fi still suck? I've been out of the loop playing video games too long. And working.
  3. Can you see if onboard sound is also affected?
  4. Yeah, the armadillos travel over the brown/white copper cable. Fun fact.
  5. This is the problem with descriptions of audio quality over measurements. Some people might say "muddy", others might say "bass is overpowered", and others might complain about "bass bloom". It depends, and they all describe different problems people might have with their audio.
  6. Veterans vs. Noobs huh? Tilt the scale towards the veterans, and nobody new wants to join. Tilt the scale towards the Noobs, and everyone wants to leave.
  7. Two years ago I made an FAQ thread to answer this question. All it's done is prove to me over and over again nobody ever reads - even stickies - they just post. I won't tell you your business, but every time I see another thread on this topic I die a little inside.
  8. with a 33 Ohm output impedance, those are about one of the few headphones I recommend you plug into that card.
  9. That asshole Snobby McSnoberson got at my credit card again and joined the drop. I'm sure he'll do a review or something but I'd rather just keep my $450.
  10. It would probably just be another thread that would get ignored in favor of yet another thread where the OP asks exactly the same question the last 25 people asked when they were OP. I still need to go fix that FAQ thread btw.
  11. Why does it get so much FLAC. File sizes are bigger and people don't like that. Other than that it's as compatible as MP3 unless you have an iPod or something.
  12. LOL the FAQ is now spoilerception. I'll start fixing it once the powers that be swear everything is fixed.
  13. https://www.mayflowerelectronics.com/ Trust me, they're on sale. I mean you wouldn't know it looking at the homepage or anything. The man knows how to make headphone amplifiers at least. ShearMe told me to post this btw.

    [REVIEW] HiFiMan HE-560

    Is the cable as crummy as the one that came with my HE-500s? I even had to buy a new cable for my LCD-2s as well. Why are all these high-end headphones so cheap? After $500 you start getting into the esoteric drivers category and things start getting out of whack in the balance between design and driver R&D when it comes to cost. Beyer and Sennheiser buck the trend in that category, but I'm talking about BOUTIQUE brands not international powerhouses that make the occasional statement headphone for enthusiasts. At least they make them with removable cables. As for the notion of a high-end headphone bust, it's already happening just nobody can see it yet. Hifiman is coming out with a cheaper HE-1000 called the HE Edition X not 5 months after releasing it at a $3k MSRP. How much do they want for the basically HE-1000 factory seconds? Only $1700. And they were open to negotiating with fans and other industry people what the price "should be". Way to show your hand at how much your markup is, or in this case, how inefficient your manufacturing process is.
  15. >audiophile virgin Don't do it! It's a trap!
  16. I had the same error and it was caused by not setting the correct path to the jails dataset under the jails configuration after I deleted and re-created my storage volumes. >six month necro deal with it
  17. yes, Uninterrupted Power Supplies are attached too all my computing equipment, but never will I need to CLEAN my digital USB signal.
  18. because if you're in a recording studio you need good power. Audiophiles like to buy pretty boxes that "fix" a rotational velocidensity problem they swear they have. For example: http://www.head-fi.org/t/762967/uptone-audio-usb-regen
  19. no. It prevents static pops so your friend's ears don't hurt when you talk. Basically.
  20. Exact Audio Copy w/ secure rip set up properly.
  21. then it's all about how much you care about availability. You could just as easily use the second drive to backup the first one and put it in a shoebox in your closet every month.
