  1. Further information: The razor is full stainless steel construction with excellent machining, has a great reputation. Comes complete in the box.

  2. I haven't run those tests and not really interested in doing so. When I purchased my RME, I was experiencing harsh treble or glare in the top end when connected to my computer via USB, we used the converter to correct the problem and it did but recently I believe the 'de-emphasis' setting being on 'auto' was the main culprit, doing more listening tests on that. RME say that setting shouldn't make any difference between auto / off, see if you can hear anything.
  3. I don't know anything about its internals, the seller might though if you message them. Same seller / brand has a higher up model for a little more if that helps. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/393144935278?hash=item5b8943a36e:g:B1AAAOSw~DRhNaa7
  4. Here's the one I use with an RME-ADI 2, in most scenarios it sounds cleaner/better via optical with this converter over USB. Definitely no sound degradation. Comes with drivers for ASIO on a disc and uses an XMOS chip. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/392866127540
  5. Further information: The amp is fully functional in great condition, comes complete in the box with power cable. Shipping is free and I will send express post to limit turnaround times.

  6. Without knowing the power output of the headphone out its hard to say how well it will drive them. I can plug 300ohm HD800S into my phone and get sound but it will sound thin, lack dynamics and won't be how they're intended. I see you have both balanced and single ended outputs, so if the headphone jack doesn't have enough power its easy as buying a moderate headphone amp and connecting that.
  7. Your post is still valid and a good recommendation. They're my speakers above and I didn't create the thread.
  8. I've settled on a pair of Pioneer DM40 monitors by choice, they're quite balanced and get the job done. I just run them from an $120 SMSL M3 DAC, sounds quite good, really.
  9. I owned the Micro version after being recommended them, they were great but due to limited space and some weird room acoustics in my bedroom they were too bass heavy for me overall, shame because I'd like to own the full size model, I like everything about them, but I just won't risk spending that much and go through the same thing. I need more distance away from any speakers here and my room doesn't allow it.
  10. Read some reviews on iLoud Micro monitors or even the larger MTM model. They're close to what you're describing.
  11. I own the RME-ADI 2, its able to drive my HD800S comfortably but missing some dynamics and impact to the sound, much better with a headphone amp connected to it. it also sounds quite blank and somewhat sterile, the opposite of musical but its very detailed and pleasing overall. I think its a little over engineered with features and EQ etc to be a stand alone amazing dac/amp for headphones but I'm not about to sell it just yet. I just feel its sounds overly flat and reference which isn't always the most pleasing.
  12. I've never had good results with Aune dac/amps used purely as a DAC, so you can definitely do better. If you want the balanced outputs the Topping looks like a decent option. They're a good brand.
