Re: AD900 + Fiio E7 = improvement?

As mentioned in the topic, will the Fiio E7 improve the sound of the AD900. Only if the Fiio dac is better than your Macbook. I know that the Ad900 will sound good on any source, Nope.

Re: MS1 vs MS2 vs AD900

I reaaallly like my MS-1 though... so I'm reluctant to go closed when these open phones are so good Exactly. I wonder whether a bit of 'upgraditis' will be satisfied with the MS2/AD900 options.

I'm with drubbing - you need to lighten up and stop taking everything so literally - if not, can I suggest Whirlpool as a great place to hang out with self-opinionated fucksticks ? Thank y...

Re: USB portable dac/amp kinda thing

If you want portable there are heaps that have the option of being dac and/or amp that will allow you to add on later. From around sub $200 to $600. Google is your friend. There's a very comprehensive thread that has reviewed and compared the portable USB DAC/amps. It's on another a headphone forum....

Audio is a fantastic way to sort personality disorders like that. Trust me on this. :evil:
