skywalker99 posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionHi, I've recently purchased fidelio x2 and decided to upgrade my sound card (xonar dgx) at the same time as there was some slight hissing present. I decided to go with an external dac. I tried a few dacs I can hear a slight silent popping in all of them in certain points of some songs. Although, it's not loud it's quite painful and a deal breaker for me. On usb dacs the quality is even worse and there are some brief cut offs - popping occurs in all dacs I tested regardless of manufacturer (smsl m2/793II, fiio e10k/e18) - popping occurs regardless of connection usb or spdif - tried connecting to different usb ports - drivers are up to date I'm running foobar 2000 on Windows 7 and WASAPI drivers. I played mp3 and flac files. Here is how it sounds. https://app.box.com/s/4tca9zih82jiekh4x5o7w6vkmdx5ky6v Help much appreciated.
