I have a decent sound card I believe......here are the specs of it "Creative SOUND BLASTER X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card" I also have various inputs and outputs on the front of my computer,that are hooked up to the sound card. I'll take a pic,if that will help.
When you say source,is that like a CD player,turntable etc etc?
If it were me, then, id skip getting the power supply upgrade for the Woo. id focus on getting a better DAC than what you have right now. the difference in the amp with the PDPS is subtle, whereas a better initial analog signal will be an extreme upgrade. id check out something along the lines of the Zero Dac - youll be pleasantly surprised by the increase in detail
Source, btw, is just that - the source of your sound. it can be a CDP, TT, or computer sound card, amongst dozens of other things.
what headphones does jarett use? particularly in duty calls?
i kinda get pissed off at my headset since the pads (although cushionny) rest on my ears, and after a good session, my ears hurt.
The ones in that episode (and others) seems cool since they fit around the earlobe.
And they look sexy.
Are they any good?
Or are they the really expensive astro ones from the interactive behind the scenes thing.
Jeremy is using Sennheiser HD555's in that episode. Doug is using Sony MDR-7506's.
the HD555's are indeed cirumaural, meaning they go around the ear. your current headphones sound like they are supra-aural, meaning the pads are the same size as the ear, and rest directly on them.
yes, the HD555's are pretty good for the price range. all headphones have a different character, and though in my opinion there are many better options in that price bracket (AD700's, D1001's), they are by no means bad headphones. youd definitely enjoy them, provided youre ok with open headphones. they cost about $100
