surround sound is overrated.
sound cards are a racket
everything is about the AMP n DAC! unk:
I might just by my Schiit with my BTC. :funky:
Shows you how much I haven't been paying attention. When did the Magni 3 drop? Looks amazing.
I always took you for a Woo WA7 Fireflies kind of person Mr.Friendly. Highish end.
Still using my E09K as an amp, HE400S planars. embarrassingly I am between DACs at the moment and using line out :doh: . Exchange rate is killing me, really do want to replace them with a Modi2/Vali or Magni even.
I use a Sennheiser GSX1000 DAC and Audio-Technica ATH-ADG1 headphones. I have some cheap Creative speakers on my desk but they haven't been hooked up for at least 18 months.
source material for over-hype on the Magni 3?
the jump from the Modi 2 and Magni 3 to the next level is quite large, and the amount I listen to music now it's overkill.
the ability to upgrade their higher end products is enticing though...
I JUST ordered the GSX1000 and I'm hoping I didn't make the wrong choice. How do you find them? I'm hoping for higher quality surround and overall sound in games, and a serviceable option for music. And I like that it was one of the options that allowed for easy hardware switching between headset and speakers.
I also have Sennheiser HD598's and a pair of Kanto YU5's that I love. And I have shiny new Sennheiser G4ME 0NE's sitting in a box to replace the 598's once my GSX arrives. I know they're basically the same headset, but I've had no end of trouble getting my USB snowball mic to work consistently with Discord, and I had a pretty bad experience with ModMic a while back. So... G4ME 0NE's it was.
