Quite right indeed, Sounds amazing without any external DAC accessories. I noticed one only issue: My mid. 2011 MacBook Pro's (El Captain) fan is loader, spinning almost every time I'm playing TIDAL's Masters only, (MQA files). A lot more data for processing at 24/96 rate for its aging i5 processor. Absolutely no need for some DAC, TIDAL's own software decoder works perfect with most of Macs, even my old 2011's iMac 22.5"/ i5 too, silently

This is natures way of telling you to turn up the volume--or buy a new computer ;- )

"This is natures way of telling you to turn up the volume--or buy a new computer ;- )" People don't need a new computer to get better sound. They need a premium quality DAC to make the sound coming out of a computer as good as possible within reason. Macapple fanbois will never, ever "Get It". You just proved the point of this topic we are discussing. You DO need an external DAC to make the sound from a mac sound much, much better. The simplistic truth of the matter will never, ever get through to a die hard apple fanboi. The moral of this thread? Don't be a die hard apple fanboi.

They most certainly do--if they don't have a quality computer, like say a nice MacBook Pro or a iMac, but we're not selling anything! If it wasn't for a bunch of zombie-like Windoze boys like yourself, staring into dreary little screens, full of awkward looking, bitmapped icons and worrying about this malware virus or the next, well--we'd just be a bunch of guys using the same computers as everyone else! Where's the fun in that? We kinda of enjoy being above the unwashed masses ;- )

PS: It's not like we've never heard of external devices, we're just not dependent on them ;- )

How to connect my laptop to DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER
I have the Focal Elex. I plug it into the mini plug audio output on my HP laptop and listen to Youtube music, and some Wav tracks saved on my computer. How do I connect the following unit into my laptop to improve my listening experience? Do I need a special cable that goes from my laptop into the DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER ?

CTH + SDAC is on the fritz. Can someone help?
So I've been using my CTH + SDAC for a couple years with no problems. However, within the last month or so, I've been running into a few issues: some hissing in the right channel (which is only really audible at 0 volume) and sometimes there are clicking sounds from the box during which the sound cuts out. It seems like it's struggling to stay fully active for some reason. I just bought a replacement 6922 tube to see if that would fix the issue. It seems to have solved the hissing, but there's still intermittent clicks that cut the audio. It's the same clicking sound that happens when the unit's LED changes from red to white and allows audio through during normal operation, but it will happen repeatedly and quickly in succession, without the LED changing, and the audio will go in and out. Has anyone had this issue or know what's going on?

DAC/AMP with 58X Jubilee and Shure MV7 XLR
I'm trying to find a really good sounding DAC/AMP to run my 58X Jubilee's and my Kanto YU2 powered speakers (preferably a button to switch between outputs) and a XLR mic input for my Shure MV7. Any recommendations? PS: I play FPS games (so want the advantage there) and listen to all sorts of music that I want to hear the depth and details of (Classical to NIN/Black Keys).

The upcoming Drop HD 800 in the works vs my existing Drop Focal Elex
I'm very interested in the upcoming custom Drop HD 800 https://drop.com/buy/drop-sennheiser-hd-8xx-headphones#overview. I'm aware some noted mastering houses use the older HD 800(S?) so that peaks my interest in them. It seems the Senn is sometimes used to identify any treble artifacts in tracks. I currently use the Elex, and I really like the relaxed, fairly accurate sound. 10 months of use now, and I just had the left driver fail. Drop is sending another new set as I type. I feel like I'm dealing with a finicky product with the Elex, and that is a drag, but the sound is working and I enjoy them. Oluv, on Youtube, compared the Elex and the HD 800S. The Elex was better in some ways, though some felt otherwise. I guess I could sell the Elex if the Drop HD 800 smokes it. I see that I can return the Drop HD 800 if I don't like it, so I just ordered it. Shipping in November 2021.
