SilverStone EB01-E DAC review - First of an audio ensemble

  • Published in AMP & DAC reviews

Testing & Performance

For this review, I opted for a subjective approach throughout. I have the Xonar Essence One as my daily DAC, but also the 'portable' iFi iDAC as well as the dedicated sound-card ROG Xonar Phoebus.

The tests have been done with: Sennheiser Amperior, Sennheiser HD600, SoundMAGIC HP150, BrainWavz HM5 and Audio Technica M50X.

I used my classic playlist, the one I usually reserve for testing headphones: 

Imagine Dragons - Radioactive
Diablo Swing Orchestra - Guerilla Laments
Dream Theater - Scarred
Dead can Dance - The Snake and the Moon
MS MR - Hurricane
Coeur de Pirate - Metal Gleamed in the Twilight
Cristopher Tin - Mado Kara Mieru
Arctic Monkeys - Brianstorm
Cage the Elephant - Sail to the Sun
fun. - Carry On
Florence and the Machines - Drumming Song
Nirvana - Smells like Teen Spirit
Dido - Let us Move On
Metallica - One
Darren Korb - Paper Boats
Saltillo - Grafting
Massive Attack - Teardrop
Venetian Snares - Hajnal
In Flames - Lord Hypnos
Rammstein - Keine Lust
Cranberries - Zombie
MS MR - Hurricane
Dead can Dance - Into the Labyrinth
Excision & Datsik - Deviance
Queen - The show must go on
Catamenia - Dreams of Winterland

Lastly, while I describe my impressions in detail, and I am fairly certain my hearing is accurate enough, I do have to put a massive "SUBJECTIVE" disclaimer on the results.
