The PC Audio Thread: Sound Cards, On-Board Audio, Speakers, Headsets: New Products and Reviews

  • Hello Thread!

    Not sure kung dito nga tama na thread pero trying my luck here.

    Anyone na naka-encounter na nagcocorrupt yung flac file upon copying to android device/sdcard? Good siya sa pc to pc talagang papunta sa android and sdcard lang nag cocorrupt. I've also tried uploading the flac to google drive then downloading it then magpla2y na yung flac (using poweramp) pero suddenly magcocorrupt na ulit after irestart yung android phone.
  • hello guys kakakabili ko lang recently ng MX40 audiotechnica ask ko lang kung may chance pa mapaganda yuung tunog nya ? thank you po

    thoughts? any 2.0 alternatives around the same price range? 1500-3000

    Saan mo ikakabit? Sa PC mo ba? Try mo kalikutin to:

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/

    Kung sa phone naman, kalikutin mo din to: Wavelet: headphone specific EQ

    Or pwede ka din bumili ng maganda na DAC
  • ^ @fakuryu

    yes po sa pc ko po sya ikakabit? if ever ano po magandang dac gamitin para saknya? thank you po
  • @shinmabin

    FX Audio DAC X6 - 2800php
    FX Audio DAC X6 MkII - 3400php (slightly better sampling rate, may BT. IMHO offers the most bang for the buck, meron din ata 2.9k at matagal ko narin minamata to pero buhay na buhay parin ang Encore ENMA ko na 24bit/96kHz. Probably ang pinaka magandang item na binenta sa CDR King dati)
    iFi ZEN DAC - 6400php
    SMSL SD-793II - 3000php
    Topping D10S - 4600php



    Would it make a difference? Is it an upgrade? Spec wise, yes. Pero is it an improvement? Tenga mo lang makakapagsabi.

  • Meron pa bang mabibilhan ng Encore Enma or similar? Sira na yung headphone out nung akin kaya sa Front Sp ko na lang sinasaksak earphones ko.

    Generally, di maganda reviews ng FX audio. Topping and SMSL offers better products.

    Very minimal lang improvement yan even with better DAC / Headphone Amp.
  • Good PM techguys!

    May idea ba kayo yung garalgal na tunog ng subwoofer sa 2.1 multi-media speaker setup? Nagpalit na ko ng wire, nilinis ko na ng WD-40 yung mga knobs (pati loob) at mga terminals ganun pa rin.
    Napansin ko lang na yung upper clip terminals ng subwoofer ang nagko-caused ng garalgal na sounds pag ikinabit na either sa L & R satellite speakers.

    Eacan A-600II 75W 2.1 Speaker (subwoofer 45W RMS; 2x satellite speakers 15W RMS each).

    Thank you in advance!
  • possible scenario
    - busted rubber foam edging
    - faulty E-cap sa amp
    - worn out potentiometer
    - cold solder sa mga components ng amp
    - Or output about to die
  • @wheelee, salamat Sir sa mga pointers.
    If in case yung problem is yung from 2nd to 4th item, ano ang pwede mo advice?
    Palitan na ba yung buong amp (yun ba yung kasama yung mga knobs/controls)?

    Thank you.
  • anyone know a headset repair shop near EDSA Ortigas-Boni?
    broke my old v1 Arctis 7 and upon checking there are 2 small cables (green and black) that broke.






    May nakita ako sa FB repair guy but he's from cavite, medyo malayo
  • ^^
    ^
    magaling mga technicians sa mga shop, dalhin nyo nalang doon para ma check at diagnose nila mga problema
    kung adventurous ka naman pwedeng ikaw mismo mag trouble shoot.

    Note:
    bagong labas noon ang Sony FH7MKII, na curious ako sa ganda at lakas ng sound, ayun sa kakakotikot ko na short ko yung STK output nya paktay lol. Kaya if your willing to take the risk mag DIY ka pero kung hindi dalhin na sa shop yan.
  • anong magandang soundbar for less than 5k?
  • Post deleted #12386455
  • Guys simple question. Anong brand ng wire ang maganda pero di naman sobrang mahal. I bought crown speaker wires. Una, makunat ang rubber na balot nya. Laging putol kahit i wire stripper. Nung nagawan ko ng paraan, sobrang maleable naman ng wires nya. maninipis pero madami. lagi ding napuputol. as in kakakabit ko pa lang sa banana plugs sira agad. baka naman may marerecommenda kayo. salamat po. SMSL AD18 po gamit ko with subs and bookshelf.
  • u-green parang di naman ako na-fail pa. ubiquitous pa sa online shop.

    Anong wire ba need niyo sir?
  • @phoenix11

    Commander 18AWG transparent speaker wire ang gamit ko dati. Maayos naman hanggang ngayon.
  • Ito gamit ko ngayon sa PC. Model A2049.

    For some reason may konting hiss yung IM70 IEMs ko kapag sa Encore ENMA naka kabit. Sa front panel audio naman ng case ko may static. Dito sa Apple DAC malinis.

  • ^ decent measurements ng headphone jack dongle ng Apple sa mga nakita kong reviews. Galing nga, kahit ang liit nung DAC chip niya.
  • Is the Topping L30 a good upgrade from a FX Audio DAC X6 MkII?

    I currently have a Fostex T-X0 and the volume pot needs to be at 100% to get decent sound out of it.
  • try to buy an amp to use that FX audio as DAC. Mejo sagwa din yang T-X0 talaga, may ganyan kasi ako, isa sa least favorite headsets that I own. I only keep it kasi siya lang closed back ko so far hehe.

    maybe Topping A30? or A50? or kung mejo mura, Fiio K5 Pro.

  • The L30 is an amp. Ang plan is to use the FX audio as DAC as you said.

    Medyo out of range na yung A30, pero yung A50s looks nice.
  • Ahh, sorry bro. Akala ko ang pagkaka code ni topping is D = DACs (na may weak amp narin, so DAC/Amp talaga sila), A = Amplifiers, tapos T = DAC/Amp combination na nila. May L pa pala hehe.

    Weird din na ang mahal ng A30. again, akala ko tiers sila, 10, 30, 50, 70 then 90. Haha ang gulo na pala lineup ni topping.

    Try mo din pala bro Schiit Magni? Happy ako sa Schiit Hel. Problema lang nga, kelangan mo gumamit ng international courier services like Johnny air Cargo or shipping cart. Nakisabit lang ako sa pinsan ko na may shipping cart kaya naka order ako ng Hel.
  • Mga sir ask ko lang po kung anung ok na headset with mic under 1k. Gagamitin po for online schooling. Thanks.

    Paki delete nalng po kung wrong thread.
