Did you order the X1 tristaan? Do report in please.
i haven't yet no, sadly i had a problem with the car so had to spend some money to get that fixed, probably gonna be a couple of weeks before i can order the x1, but i'm pretty sure that's what i'm going to go for :)
Oh, bad luck tristaan. Do report in when you get it. Highly under-rated in my opinion.
Russ Andrews currently selling Firestone Fubar4+ for £126
14day home trial, worth a listen?
just ordered a fubar 4+ (due to them only being £126 for a while) will report back in a couple of days once it's arrived.
p.s. thanks for the tip off about the fubar Fatman
Would be good to hear your thoughts on the Fubar. I use AKG701's and was also looking for something reasonably priced with USB. Went for the Beresford 7520 and upgraded the opamps which does a pretty good job for the money. Worked out to about £150 all in.
So i've had this Fubar 4 Plus for a few days now, given it a good listen. It is safe to say i am thoroughly impressed with the difference it makes.
The bass is a lot tighter, the mid range is more defined and voices are almost heavenly! (compared to the previous sound i had anyway, i'm sure a more expensive dac would bring out even more!) it is definitely doing my cans a lot more justice than the standard soundcard in my computer, and it just keeps getting better the more i use it. Only issue i have now is that some of my music files are a little poor quality (nothing to do with the Fubar) although it does bring out all the deficiencies in my bit rate and recordings etc.
would definitely recommend it if Russ Andrews is still selling it for £126!!
