itt: new revolutionary tech.
i like how they end with "with an mx4 pro in your palm, you'll find out what retinasound really means"
yea, probably something along the lines of "i got ripped off"
How is this different from the more premium built in integrated audio that you have seen on a few motherboards lately?
GIGABYTE G1™ Gaming motherboards are equipped with the GIGABYTE exclusive AMP-UP Audio Technology, which provides the industry’s highest level of onboard audio features and technologies. With GIGABYTE AMP-UP Audio, gamers and audiophiles are able to experience crisp, ultra realistic sound effects while gaming, and the richest possible sound experience when listening to their favorite music and movies.
at this point, it's prolly better to just carry around generator and desktop equipment
ES9018 dac chip, from what i've heard, it's pretty good
OPA1612 opamp chip... prolly part of the preamp (volume) circuit... doubt they put in an actual amplifier circuit into a smartphone
patrick82 is truly the hero the audiophile world needs but doesn't deserve. It's a pity he got banned from Head-Fi.
Everything about him was GOLD right down to his inventory and profile page.
That benchmark didn't do anything to deserve that sort of treatment.
You just cannot comprehend the genius at work here.
>The chassis is built from tree fibers and pure quartz crystals. This takes the sound to a higher level than the standard plastic or metal chassis.
and I thought Diamond DAC IV was expensive
how has he not killed himself yet?

>no cable risers
What a tard, I bet he doesn't have Golden Ears, should have stuck with iPhone earbuds, he wouldn't have noticed a difference.
my calculator has one of them
they're pretty handy
oh, well i'm sure he's been shocked not just once but sadly with a good differential disruptor, installed by default you can't really kill yourself with 220vAC anymore. it stings but doesn't or hardly causes heart attack.
for a moment there i felt dissapointed that main's can't kill those dumb enough to fuck with it
I have actually managed to find a copy with a screenshot of his software setup in it.
yes, this. maybe even after running it through processing to make it sound like it was recorded to an analog tape from fm radio...ironically.
holy shit this is for real?
>Multiple chambers are built inside the unit using natural whitewood tree fiber for the most neutral sound.
>Multiple layers of Whitewood tree fibers have been placed around everything, with a silver powder shield in between the tree fibers.
>On the surface lies the Jungle tree fiber formula using 3 different tree fiber colors, this results in the most neutral sound while adding some warmth.
>Rainman Silver Purification is used to finish off everything, and give it a wet a

I was going to post a screenshot from iTunes running on Leopard, but it was actually probably what he was running.

reading the "reviews" of the zip lock'd bad of rocks --almost-- makes me believe there is some merit to them. i thank the gods everyday that i am not so feeble minded that i get caught into the trap of "high fidelity".
