Re: Static noise using AD 700s

I would suggest trying them from a different source or two - passive headphones generally won't create their own sound, only pass on what's being fed. If what you're hearing sounds like a physical buzzing, eg: a torn driver, that's a different matter but pretty obvious with low frequencies. Thanks ...

Static noise using AD 700s

Hi, I've had a pair of Audio Technica ADH-AD 700's for a few years now but recently they have had quite a lot of static when listening to music. They've been good headphones and I've treated them pretty carefully so I'm not sure what's gone wrong. Maybe the audio cable is loose? I'm not sure. I use ...

Re: Help me configure Xonar Audio Centre

Thanks Flognuts, I had installed the drivers that you had recommended in another thread. Just uninstalled them and have checked and the molex connector is firmly connected to the power socket on the sound card. Will install the new drivers you linked me in this thread. I'm assuming I just click norm...

Re: Help me configure Xonar Audio Centre

Thanks. I upped the gain to high, would you please explain to my what PCM is and what these different frequency levels mean? I originally thought to set it to 192KHz because it was the highest and to me it seemed logical that that would be the best but I'm not too sure.

I tried MP3 Juices but Kaspersky marked a song I tried to download as dangerous.

Thank you for your suggestions, is there any free 320 kbps music I can get? What playback software would you recommend?

Re: Need to upgrade source.

Do you think the STX will be worth the money and incur a very big difference in audio quality compared to a $50 DG? Also, do you think the inbuilt DAC in the STX is very good? I listen to YouTube quality music.

I have a pair of Audio Technica ATH-AD700's, which I use with a Graham Slee Voyager Amplifier, which I run straight out of my on-board sound. They work great togeth...
