i won't be making this one lads but it would have been cool to compare the LCD-X and XC with other gear to see how they respond. I might have to invite radio_head over one day and we can have our own mini meet and commiserate. Have a blast and don't get too wasted on the koolaid ..dB
you can but it would be better not to. The added load from parallel headphones will impact the amps performance.    edit - I sent Alex a note asking him to let you have the LAu manual - it must have been shipped with the LLmkII manual in error 
Hey Darin   The jacks are combo stereo jacks. the one to the left is impedance matched for low sensitivity headphones while the one on the right ( looking at the amp face ) is the standard stereo jack.    don't try and plug stats into it ;)    ..dB
I wasn't sure what to expect but I was pretty much floored by how much detail and control this little amp has - I said to Jason that there is no way that Schiit should sound that good. If anything, I think the Modi was holding it back. This is just one of "those" products - it is going to generate huge waves.    ..dB
 It is ignorance of the design that might drive you to beat your forehead repeatedly. The LL is the only stat amp to sense the rails and shut the entire thing off if the safe operating current limit is exceeded. This will not only protect costly headphones but also the user as the amp will have completely shut itself down. In my mind, this is the safest solution. 
I had initially read your post in that matter and then saw the counterpost and concluded that you were playing a baiting game . If this were not so, your post on the other forum would not have been stated as you did. If you did not intend this interpretation of your motives, it might have been better not to have followed through elsewhere. BUT , let's not extend any ill feeling as I honestly harbor none. Alex will hopefully have access to his pc later and be able to...
John, if you had not counterposted on another forum with a smarmy remark, I might have thought your question was more honest and serious. Alex does not frequent the forums but I will allow you the benefit of the doubt and make him aware of your question. My assurance that the amps are safe will not cut it and thus I will have him explain why his safety precautions are better than any other stat amp DIY or commercial..dB
 The amp that failed was built by a highly respected member of another forum who was well acquainted with the amp and the build of the amp was exemplary. When it failed, he was preoccupied with other important matters and could not address the problem. I offered to help a friend in need and went looking where anyone with foresight into this amplifier would go , I used google to track down several reports of similar concerns and transformer failures. Please feel free to do...
Peter, your efforts were valiant and there are many who appreciate your time although by the context of your quote you may have considered the amp in current production and not one that has been discontinued. The LLmkII has been making the rounds on request and I believe it was very recently in Canada. I also wish everyones' intentions could be so pure but we would be naive to consider this the truth. You know where you can read what is really being said and your well...
I think Curra's comment on asking for objective evidence is perhaps the most level headed yet. So far there have been all sorts of subjective claims which I can dispute based on personal experiences but again merely subjective. This whole folly also brings Hitchen's Razor to mind " What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence"
