i'm having trouble with static noise while listening to music through my new headphones. i never had this problem with my previous headset, but it was usb connected while this one is mini jack. would getting an external DAC solve this static issue?

Hello,I have an ASUS XONAR DX sound cart and I use 2 ways for listening .The first one is using the SPDFI port for my amplifier (optical connection ) and the second one is a coaxial connection (not using the soundcard in this way) . I notice, that the sound quality with the soundcard (optical connection) is by far better..Really fantastic quality...BUT.. When I listen from Spotify Premium (better sound quality..they say) in some classical songs (with piano) I hear a tricky sound like deformations.When I turn it to coaxial connection the deformations disappear. I hope to understand my problem..Why this happens ??

I never forgot about audio, I just decided to deal with it later. now I'm having trouble getting a mic working well. some weird stuff with with Windows. basically it records too quietly.
Benjamin Ocean (4 months ago)
With Headphones like the Sennheiser HD 800S, i was wondering if i should get a DAC like the Hugo 2 or TT, or an amp or both? Im not sure of what i actually need to get the best sound possible out of my headphones. If you could clarify this i would be grateful. Thanks.
MODERN FLEX (4 months ago)

Garbage in, garbage out. External dac is the way to prevent putting a garbage in your ear from your pc/laptop/phone.

If you're not ripping CDs as AIFF, Apple Lossless or WAV, then anything better than a decent computer's internal DAC would again probably be overkill.

Main reason to buy external audio systems: You build a Hackintosh and don't get sound running. At least this was for me. But i currenly live with a US$ 3.50 USB stick from China. I'm not an audiophile.
Only_Max (5 months ago)
I really to get rid of the sound from my mechanical keyboard any suggestions ? (i'm using a Blue Snowball (i can buy a new mic/stand/pop filter/etc)
Reza Molavi (5 months ago)
Thank you for the information. Here is a problem I have and am hoping you can help me solve it. As you are well-aware, there are lots of different content creators with varying degree of audio recording quality. I find myself constantly adjusting and messing with audio settings and end up more dissatisfied than ever. Is there a software/hardware combination solution to equalize and/or normalize audio reaching my headphones (I use good quality wired headphones B&O and B&W on an average PC listening to lots of spoken words)? please advise and thank you very much in advance

Hey Marques, what sort of amplifier would be good for listening to music through High End speakers that is coming from a laptop? I just want to hook up some really great speakers to my laptop and surely I need some sort of power source since I don't want to purchase an audio/video receiver. Thanks!
Jordan Martin (5 months ago)
Hi Marques, I have a very directed question. Have you ever tried the Audioengine HD3 speaker? They come with an inbuilt PCM 5102 DAC. Would you recommend using an Audioengine D1 (AKM 4396) DAC with this? Would there be any difference? and could you explain the difference between the PCM and AKM D/A convertors? Thanks in advance :)

jc selanova (6 months ago)
You mean Digital-to-Analog Converter right?
Rian Loubser (6 months ago)
DAC - Digital/Analog converter. And the analog components surrounding the DAC chip is really important, this is what makes the largest difference in audio quality between most devices who even share the same DAC chip .
Samuel Awolaja (6 months ago)
Love your video, thanks for the explanation. I'm currently designing and putting together my own theatre set up. Your comment on audio resonated with my own ideas. I have a HTPC connected to my 5.1 surround sound system, can this Audio Engine D1 bypass the internal Realtek sound card of the HTPC and so the D1 becomes the default setting for my audio to be played via the 5.1 set up? Also does the D1 support windows 10 and is it plug and play?
