Of dozens and dozens of DACs and amps that I have, this is my main unit that I listen to. At this price, it is an amazing bargain.
How far would you have to turn the unit's knob to get a decent amount of volume for the HD650/6XX? (and the HD600 if you own a pair)
How far would you have to do so if you had a pair of 600 ohm headphones, lets say HD540? (or DT880/990 600ohm ver.)
Do dual dac chips mean it is a balanced dac? I am new to audio.
no, it means every side has its own dac chip or something like that
How does a balanced dac work?
One chip for each channel I believe. It's not balanced. Balanced means that each channel (left and right) uses 3 wires, one for ground and the 2 others for signal. The waveforms are then shifted out of phase so that the noise picked up along the wire will happen at different places in the signals because the phases are not in sync. At the other end the signals of the two inputs are compared and the noise can be removed and only the intended signal is left.
Hopefully I remembered it correctly :)
Okay, thank you so much for your response!
