Hi all. I’m hoping someone has an answer or at least some ideas on why I’m noticing this difference.
Here’s the setup at a high level:
source: amazon music hd
medium: digital usb
target: dac + amp + headphone
So in both, i make sure the audio is capable of playing at 24bit / 192khz. Both setups i use after market usb cables except on windows i have a usb-a (monolith) cable and on mac, i have a usb-c (off-brand) cable. Everything else is the same but when i sample music, the mac is noticeably fuller and provides more impact.
only thing i can think of that could be altering the music would be apo equalizer with peace however i’m only setting a bass shelf there… no other tweaks. did i misconfigure Equalizer APO?? something else?
