HeadAmp Pico Portable Amp (w/ optional upsampling 24/96 USB DAC) Pre-Order Thread - Page 241

post #3601 of 3709

If I want to order a pico USB DAC/Amp, can I just use the order page or do I have to also post here?

post #3602 of 3709

Go to the order page on Justin's site.  Somewhere back in the thread someone else ask this question I think.

Tyll of InnerFidelity has posted some preliminary measurements of mostly portable amps

It's unusual to see this kind of data from anyone in the headphone review business, amateur or professional

Justin,

When you are putting together a new amp do you do any kind of measurements or is it "by ear"?

 

Thanks for posting the link.  It's very interesting to see what Tyl is up to with this stuff.

both.  There is no replacement for measurements and test equipment during the design process.  anyone who really only designs "by ear" is only seeing 1% of the picture.

I searched but not a lot of concise information... is there a way to get USB digital audio off an iPhone to use with the Pico?

Not from an iphone, but I'm pretty sure you can with the ipad (not that helps you in any way...)

Nah, ipad's too big. Thanks anyway.

Just purchased a Black Headamp Pico Portable DAC/Amp...looking for a portable laptop solution...still enjoying my GS-1 for home mated with the Benchmark Dac1 USB....it's been a very dependable mating but the GS-1 stepped Attenuator has proven to be of a higher quality than that of the Benchmark Dac1s...fyi...I know I'm buying quality from Headamp.com...Thanks Justin, looking forward to the pico Dac/Amp.
