Hello, Not sure if im posting it on the right (sub)forum, I have a small issue and hope someone here can tell me what you think. I am currently using an auzentech hometheater hd soundcard with a x-fi chip on it with upgraded opamps and has a cirrus logic CS4382A dac. Im using it with a denon d7100 headphone. The sound with the soundcard is pretty good. Have plenty of volume and the detail is ok too. Im wondering if I can improve it some more. Im looking into a Yulong DA8 but I dont know if it will improve the quality of sound(looking for more clarity and detail in music) enough to justify the 1200 euro price. Im not able to test it since its not for sale in the country where I live. The Yulong uses an ESS Sabre 9018 chip I have googled for a comparison between the Cirrus logic and the sabre chip, but it doesnt get me much results. The Sabre chip is much better from what I read. It supports alot of high res sources which is nice to have but the sources I listen to are mostly 320 kbps mp3 and FLAC/wav files... Im hoping someone on this forum has some experience with the Yulong DA8 and Auzentech HTHD. Or experience in general with a soundcard DAC vs external DAC in regard of sound quality. Has an external DAC improved your sound quality vs a soundcard ? Thanks!
