  1. Is there a good free program to split video files? I know google is a thing but they usually don't show the programs that are known to be reliable
  2. I'm presenting first hand experience, an amp capable of 600mw at 3/4 volume should in your view cause me an aneurism. No matter how much you debate it stating that 17mw will make you deaf and comparing that to my real world experience of 600mw............ is not even close You're google searching and entering forms...... I'm listening
  3. Having the juice to make a sine wave at a high volume is not the same as providing full power behind a dynamic and ever changing musical experience without distortion. When a heavy note hit's and the amplifier can not catch up you have a clipped amplifier
  4. Can you give me an equation for my own hearing?
  5. You need to apply experience more than theory. There is a difference between possible and best practice. You may not have the ears to differentiate or the funds to experience, but don't take your theory as a replacement for experience. I don't have golden ears by any means but I can tell you that there is body behind properly powering a pair of headphones. I had to put you on my ignore list, as the first person there, because you said that a 1990 doesn't BENEFIT from anything beyond onboard. Can you play it onboard? I don't know proba
  6. There could be better way's to do this, but I suggest looking into a spdif switcher so you can select the source for your audio to go with your soundbar
  7. Is there a free or trial version of some software to split or convert a lossless AVI file? File was created in OBS studio's of a screen capture
  8. Another suggestion made if you bumped up the budget is the Asgard with the dac module in it
  9. It's not just simple math and numbers, the quality of the sound isn't a number. Having the juice to fill in between notes is important. If you're struggling to produce the volume you're at the sound will be weak and lifeless. I have 600ohm headphones and I have different amplifiers to A/B test, not equations.
  10. I agree with most everything mentioned here. The thing to know about the 6xx is it reflects everything behind it so any upgrade you make it will appreciate. To throw out some food for thought, you could try a tube amp and do some tube rolling but that'll be a higher budget when considering new tubes. This little dot is a great tube amp but the stock tubes aren't so great. Also most people recommend having a good solid state amp first so you can understand what the tubes are doing. But 6xx and tubes go hand in hand so I thought I would mention it at least.
  11. What I'm being told in the audio community I'm in is that for that price range magni/modi stack would be a good fit but the headphones scale very well with what ever you put behind them so they make the most out of everything you put into them.
  12. I hear a lot of people underestimating what it takes to drive a 600ohm headphone. To give you an idea of how much power my dt880 600ohm are currently running on my amplifier delivers 8500mw at 47 ohm's and only 600mw at 600ohm. It's a stereo amplifier that is capable of outputting the entire amplifier into the headphone jack. And that's at atleast 3/4 volume to get a loud experience. With that setup you will be maxing everything in the chain. Can you drive them on the MOTU? Probably. Should you? Probably not. Here is a picture of what's currently driving mine
  13. I would ignore Atmos for the corner of a room, before you know it you're surrounded by speakers and getting very little benefit from it, it's designed for entire rooms and movie watching. Again I would suggest that you get just a good amplifier and a pair of left and right and see if that's good for you. For most use a 2.0 stereo setup will be far better than a surround setup at the same end game price. But you never answered to what content you want to take in. Remember that the vast majority of content is NOT produced with surround sound capability, MOST content is just stereo 2.0 unles
