  1. Ok... I'll have to read up on them. I'm looking at the Beresford Caiman. But now I'm thinking, maybe I should go for a smaller and more portable DAC.
  2. I see... I'm rather new to the DACs and amps, so i'm not very familiar with them... by bypassing, is it the same as using the pre-amp outputs of the DAC?
  3. I've read somewhere that pairing an amp to a DAC with integrated headphone amp (DAC with HP amp --> amp --> HP) isn't recommended... is that true? I've seen some people with similar set-ups... Thanks
  4. Looking for a EarMax Pro, black.
  5. Ok, will give them an audition.. My budget isn't alot actually, but if I can get the feel I want, I'll definitely be willing to fork out a little more. Problem is, I'll be using it with my laptop often, so I guess I'll need a DAC to go along with the amp? I've heard about them, but not auditioned them yet
  6. As above, but for my laptop and a DT880 (250 ohms).. I went to test out the Go-Vibe and Go-Vibe Magnum yesterday, expecting the kind of sound quality I get from listening to music in Gramophone (kind of far fetched, but I was expecting something similar, given that the phones they use are entry lvl, and the amps don't look like expensive ones), and I just didn't feel the 'wow' factor when listening to my songs.. soundstaging wasn't as big as I expected, the songs weren't really crystal clear sounding, and all I could really feel improved vs my laptop soundcard was smoother vocals, instruments, better seperation, less coloured, and just easy on the ear. I'm not sure whether I was expecting too much, or is it just because the pairing of the dac/amp and headphones weren't that great. So can anyone recommend something that pairs well with the dt880? I prefer instrumentals+vocals, jazzy/acoustic/easy listening/slow rock type of songs, with more emphasis on clarity of vocals, somewhat larger soundstaging (but more emphasis on instrumental seperation), and a more natural sound signature. I'm new to amps and dacs, so I guess I got kinda carried away just reading off comments instead of going around trying them..

    Emi Fujita

    Her songs are really good I especially love her rendition of "Fields of Gold".. By the way, does anyone know of where I can get guitar tabs from her version of the song? I've tried searching everywhere, but can't find it..
  9. Reserved =) (Anyone else who's interested, just PM me, in case the deal falls through. First come first served basis.)
