I plan to completely disable my PC sound card (win 11) and get Topping DX1 and use an EQ software like (Peace equalizer, or any other, I am open to suggestions), will this work effectively? any downside for this approach? I do not see any negatives with replacing the SB-Z card (it's old, so limited driver development)/improvement). If you need a balanced headphone output, the KA3 is the obvious choice. But if you don’t need a balanced circuit, the Topping delivers a cleaner sound with more power and a lower noise floor.

DX1 can push up to 280mW x2 @32Ω of output power which is enough for any IEMs and efficient full-size headphones. This unit is sure to be a hot topic in audio circles and is the perfect place for budding audiophiles to start their DAC/amp journey. Accidents, abuse, misuse, improper installation, problems with electrical power, acts of third parties.I like to disable the motherboard's on-board audio, in the BIOS, when installing an internal sound card (like the SB-Z). If it is plastic sealed when you get it, it should remain plastic sealed. Some types of goods such as CIEMs and custom cables cannot be returned. Topping has equipped the latest DX1 with the latest generation AKM DAC chipset. It houses the AK4493S DAC chip from AKM’s Velvet Sound technology, it’s a 32-bit DAC upgraded from the classic AK4493. It helps the DX1 to provide crisp high-resolution audio signal decoding. High-Resolution Audio Decoding:- The TOPPING DX1 is a DAC/Amp that’s here to shake up the entry-level market. Featuring an all-new AKM DAC chip, dual gain settings, and two outputs, it’s the perfect way to jumpstart your audiophile journey and hear your IEMs and full-size headphones like never before. Thanks allot! 6 months ago I upgraded from win10 to win11 and everything was great including sound quality, but lately it started to degrade and gradually becoming uncomfortable, I don't know if its win11 or SB Z.

It may be an entry-level device, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t ready for hi-fi sound. Using an all-new AK4493S DAC chip, the DX1 decodes up to 32-bit/384kHz PCM in a stunning 120dB of dynamic range. Do you have a better usb dac suggestion other than DX1? (preferably same price range but I can go to 150 Euro if it worth it). With high/low gain options and two outputs (6.35mm and 3.5mm), the DX1 is ready for IEMs, full-size headphones, and everything in between. Despite its small size, it can output up to 280mWx2 @32Ω and 51mWx2 @300Ω of power. Discrete LNRD circuit If I had a choice myself and had to choose between the two, I would take the Topping DX1, over the SB-Z card. Topping DX1 is widely compatible with a range of desktop devices. It doesn’t require any additional power adapter and works directly off your sources like Windows/Ma/Linux and even Android devices. Discrete LNRD Circuit:-Remove the card, delete Creative software, then reinstall card in case, and reinstall Creative Software. This is where it starts, need a small Headphone amplifier and USB Dac then the Topping DX1 has you covered.

Topping DX1 is an all-in-one solution for all your Hi-Fi needs. The device supports high-resolution PCM and DSD signal decoding bringing an authentic high-resolution audio experience to your desktop. It has an XMOS XU208 USB receiver chip that provides 32-Bit/384kHz and Native DSD256 signals. Plug & Play, No Adapter Required:- Enter the discrete LNRD (Low Noise Reference Driver) circuit, which filters out interference and noise from the USB power supply. As a result, the noise levels from the DAC and headphone amp sections are a minuscule 2.0uV and 1.0uV, respectively. This means you can listen to your music without any distractions, even with sensitive in-ear monitors. This warranty extends only to personal use & does not extend to any product that has been used for commercial use, rental use, or use that is not intended. There are no warranties other than expressly set forth herein. To my ears, the K3 sounds thinner and not as resolving as the DX1. The DX1 outperforms the FiiO in resolution and imaging plus it sounds more confident when using harder-to-drive headphones. VerdictThe 300-Ohm Sennheiser HD6XX headphones are something I would connect to a OTL tube headphone amplifier, for audio enjoyment. Any item returned must be complete with all accessories, hardware, manuals, or instructions, and in the same "new" condition as when it was when shipped to you. Please send us photos or videos of it. Powered by only USB and using the new AK4493S chipset the Topping DX1 works on a number of products including Windows 10 / 11, Mac, Linux which can be used Plug and Play ( Only Windows ASIO applications needs a driver ).
