>> No.66739699

no no no. the fulla 2 has a passive volume knob, like a control freak. the jbls have white noise at higher volumes, and if i want to adjust i have to dick around behind both of them. the fulla 2 is also a dac, so it's basically my control freak with a dac built in.

It's $200 on massdrop and the only reason i'd recommend it right now.

For the HD6XX especially which are 300ohm and give no fucks to a 10 ohm output impedance.

At $300 it's a rip off, at $200 it's better than the Schiit stack or the JDS O2+ODAC

I'm talking about for the HD6XX, if you have some IEMs or something that requires lower output impedance there are other options out there.

But for HD6XX, the Aune has more power at 300ohm and allows for more EQ headroom, it also has a higher resolution DAC, and more inputs/outputs than the O2+ODAC.

Not to mention, you don't have to pay for stupid "upgrades" like having the power adapter rear mounted, or other shit that should be free.

The Magni 2 can do 260mW at 300ohm, that's way more than the HD6XX need.

Depending on the music you listen to you wont even need more than ~50-60mW.

With classical recordings you may need double that or even more for certain pieces, but for most modern music, you'll have no issues at all with a Magni 2, and the Fulla 2 could probably do an okay job, but it'd probably be turned up almost to full most of the time, if not all the way.

this is what iFi said in response to this on headfi.

>It was the result of excellent work done at Burr-Brown Japan before it became TI and was meant to be used in High End universal disk players with excellent performance for CD replay, Audio-DVD and SACD. Unlike most newer Chips from TI and many others, it retains a true multibit core for PCM replay, based on the visionary (and under-appreciated) PCM69 AND it retains Burr-Brown’s unique and excellent approach to DSD replay, first introduced with the DSD1700 Chip.

>What this means in practice is that the DSD Stream only passes an analogue lowpass filter, there is no up-conversion or data manipulation applied at all. Very few DAC Chips available today allow for this.

>Further, with this chip we retain a true Multibit PCM Core, true, only the upper 6 Bits are converted using multibit conversion, while anything below the top 6 Bits goes through a 256FS low order delta sigma modulator, in many ways this particular configuration is the best arrangement currently available, short of using a true 32 Bit Multibit DAC, which realistically speaking does not exist (yet).

>>66741500
the Nano BL is just barely enough if you listen to modern music, but I listen to mainly orchestral and opera, where in many cases you simply need more volume, especially in pieces with pizzicato or sections etc.

I KNOW that I need at least 100mW at 300ohm, and for EQ room, i'd prefer 150mW to give myself headroom.

The Nano BL provides 40mW at 300 ohm which again, is good enough for pop and other modern genres, but even then you might not have an EQ room depending how you like your EQ and your listening habits.

I have Sennheiser 598, which don't need an amp so I don't own one. I was considering buying higher end headphones that would require an amp/dac. But my I have a high end mother board that claims it has a dac/amp built into it. It says a bunch of things about AMP/DAC like:

"121dB SNR AMP-UP Audio with ALC1220 & High-End ESS SABRE 9018 DAC with WIMA audio capacitors".

My motherboard is the "Z370 AORUS Gaming 7" But would it be good enough for something like the HD600 or better? Idk if its an actual helpful feature of my mobo or its just buzzword gimick trash, meaning i would have to buy an amp aswell.

The driver on planars is so thin that its always adjusting to different air pressure and this causes crinkling.

It's great for keeping you head perfectly still in a perfectly quiet and soundproofed studio while holding your breath for 5 seconds to hear all the details in 5 seconds of a track, but that's it.

They are pretty honest about their leather nonsense. They introduced vegan pads which completely outperformed leather and protein leather (eggshells?), but they last too long and don't use them on the new iSine crap.

Protein leather is almost as bad as leather, wearing out immediately, so they use it to make you rebuy more often.

i've owned the fulla 2 for a while, i just ordered the magni 2, which was 60 shipping in vs 110 for a magni 3. from what i've seen either it's miles apart difference or there's just that subtlety that won't really justify paying 50 more for a slightly better amp.
will the magni 2 totally gimp these headphones or was i right to just pay 50 less and be ignorant of slightly better audio?

Get a LG with quad DAC, it's pretty much better than any dedicated player below 500$.

/hpg/, this is Amir. Do not buy Schiit products, I repeat, DO NOT BUY SCHIIT PRODUCTS. Don’t be fooled by the humoristic product descriptions, the quality control is atrocious with solder splatters on PCB, and their 2000 dollar DAC objectively loses to a cheap Topping DAC that costs only 1/20th of it.

As so, I really can’t recommend any of the Schiit products. If you want a one-in-all solution, Topping DX7S measures objectively better than Schiit ”stack” in the same price bracket. Obviously Schiit needs to hire some real engineering expertise to get their products up to the high standards expected out of them, the current situation is simply unacceptable!

If you own Schiit Jotunheim and a meter, it is highly recommeded that you test the same and contact Schiit about this if you measure the same! This is absolutely unacceptable and a testament that Schiit doesn’t have the engineering knowledge to make products like headphone amps!

I'm still not sure if I should go for X2 or Hd599. I'm thinking way too much about which could be the best for my use and considering they're polar opposites when it comes to sound signatures I always find struggle in choosing one between the two. I'm slightly more tempted towards the X2 because they're easier to drive and they're more "fun" sounding, while the 599 are less colored and more mid-forward.

I have no experience with the 598, I can just say that the K712 is a very technically competent headphone with a large soundstage and a pleasant, relatively neutral sound signature. If you already have 598s I would imagine it's probably not such a large upgrade that they're worth getting though.
