As an old-school studio musician, I'm glad to see the implementation of an LED impedance indicator. One thing confuses me: does the LED on the right front panel light up for low impedance as well as high, or is low impedance indicated by the light being off entirely? I hope the "warning" light doesn't merely indicate low impedance, as a red light signaling any form of correct usage might annoy the average user.

Does the "warning" light function somewhat like a clipping indicator? That is, does the LED change to red when low impedance is selected for a set of high impedance headphones? If so, congratulations on making a geek-friendly amp with a deceptively clean-looking design. Keep this up, and you might convince Dr. Xin to became a metrosexual.

Also: Does the inside of your "elegant silver stainless steel gift box" contain any sort of cushioning? If not, I fear the XO could get scratched while being carried or, as you put it, "stored."

Also: How exactly are you accomplishing "sound expansion"? Have you implemented the rudimentary "3-D" DSP setting sometimes found on legacy PCDPs? I myself probably wouldn't use such an effect, but I'd like to know how it's being done.

Lastly: Could you provide a picture of the bottom of the amp? It might answer certain questions, such as whether the batteries can be changed.

Here is the picture you offered us on another thread:


The inclusion of a pair of MS-2 in the picture makes me wonder:

Do you feel the XO has particularly good symbiosis with the MS-2, or was that headphone simply the prettiest and most metallic to include in the picture's composition? I ask because the MS-2 can sound harsh when paired with the wrong amp and source, and I would find an MS-2-friendly portable to be particularly useful.

Y'know. I had always thought about modding a flask for a headphone amp.

Very nice.

NO kidding ! Truly one of a kind appearance. Of course I want one.

Excuse me if this has been addressed elsewhere but what colors is this amp available in?
