I have a nice set of sony xb910n’s (SBC, AAC, LDAC) and an older nice set of sony XB950N1’s (AAX,SBC, aptx). I currently have a win 10 4th gen i7 desktop that I would like to play high-quality music from. Now here’s the question: Since MS absolutely refuses to port AAC to Win 10, Is there a good set of high-quality Headphones that uses USB (like a how callcenter headset wound), or is there a good USB DAC, that can give me LDAC like sound quality?
I have gotten LDAC running on my Zion OS linux ThinkPad, as well as my LG V60 and it sounds heavenly. The ASUS BT 5.0 USB dongle my desktop has won’t recognize anything other than SBC,
as does my ThinkPad X1 extreme (different ThinkPad).
I even went as far as to download the insider build, but still no AAC
I’ve seen the dragonfly, Soundblaster, and a few others but don’t know if they are worth the price. I did tinker with a fiio E10k not too long ago, but the performance was underwhelming compared to my V60, and it had a defect.
(Can’t wait for TB 5 and 10GBe)
