It's a Zhaolu D2C with the amp and LED's takin' out, then in the space created is a Zapfilter2 discrete output board with it's own power supply. It's incredible. Here's a few links about it.

Let me know what DAC you end up going with and how it sounds. I'm solid for headphones and amp, but the Zhaolu doesn't have anything I've modded on it yet, so it doesn't have guaranteed residence in my system.
More changes?!

As far as a DAC goes, I would like to go all-Chinese and pick up a Zhaolu. Problem is USB connectivity is pretty important for me. I'm also considering a Great March, though I haven't heard enough about it yet. I have an M-Audio Revo feeding the Darkvoice and I'm wondering if (and thinking I probably could) do better.

I only did it because I already had to crack it open to put in a 1/4" jack that stuck out a little further so the plug doesn't sit flush against the faceplate. I swear! It not like I wanted to tweak it anymore!

Half of the reason for the Zhaolu is the headamp for quick listening or checking audio tracks for something without a real listening session. And I need to be able to switch inputs because sometimes I run a digital out from the soundblaster to it for gaming, but I'm planning on adding a CD player into the mix for listening to CDs I've gotten but haven't ripped yet.

Sure ya didn't.

Yeah I know what ya mean. I have an input selector on my Sony JA20ES minidisc deck, so I run my CD player and computer soundcard into it and the digital out put of it into my Zhaolooser101.

want to know, is this amp suitable for low impedance headphone?
post #655 of 823
Yes, it sounds great with all the Grados that I throw at it such as HHF-1, HF-1, 325, and GS1000.
