How do Amps, DACs, DAPs and Cables make a difference?
Every loudspeaker you’ve ever heard or seen needs an Amp to sound loud and clear. Period. It is like the engine of the car that propels the vehicle.
Having the right amp for the right headphone is very crucial. You need a dedicated amp that’ll make sure that the headphone you own sings as enchantingly as it is intended to.
The audio you hear, natural or otherwise, is analogue - that’s how humans function. The music that you store on electronic gadgets like computers, iPads, smartphones and such is all digital.
A quality DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) translates digital files so you get to hear beautiful music with all its nuances kept intact, as intended.
When you use good quality headphones, it only makes sense that the quality of your audio files are good enough so as to be maximizing your headphones' full potential.
With a high-resolution DAP or Digital Audio Player that is capable of playing lossless file formats like FLAC, ALAC, WAV you get the best of both worlds and superior listening experience.
Connecting your headphones with a DAC or an Amp, cables are an important link in one’s quest for audio nirvana.
Cables are available in different materials, ranging from copper to gold plated ones. They also feature different connectors like 3.5mm (AUX), USB, XLR among others to provide the best of connectivity and improve the sound.
