post #16 of 324
Nice looking. Thanks for posting the images. I still don't like the leather cover. How is the sound shaping up?

The sound is very good. I am now using a THS4032 in LR and an ADA4841-2 in IC2. This is a very nice little amp. I have yet to need the bass gain switch. Even my HD650s are driven nicely with the gain switch set to 3. (The middle position)

I also added another pix showing the P2 and D1 side-by-side.

It should be out very soon. This is the final production version, I believe.

So this amp will be released together with D2? oh my oh my wallet starts to bleed again!

Nice pics Ron, I specially like that it is only an amp. Some of us do not need to carry a DAC everyday, and that allows for an smaller footprint, longer battery life, hopefully better component selection. My P2 should arrive on Wednesday and I can't wait to roll op-amps as well.

Currently the D1 is my favorite amp, although a bit big for truly portable. I would like to get the new Reference board from Dr. Xin so I could compare it w/ the D1.

Very very curious about this amp. I wonder if it will beat the amp section of the modded D1.

Comparing the P2 with the AD8620 in IC1 and ADA4841-2 in IC2 with my D1 configured with OPA 627s on a 2>1 adapter and the LME 49720 for buffers, I can hear very little difference between the two except that the highs are a bit brighter with the D1. I am using the D1 DAC optical input for both amps.

Keep in mind that I have several hundred hours on my D1 and perhaps 3 or 4 on the P2!

Chassis size is very nice on that P2 and that face plate looks bullit proof;-)

It is an exquisitly constructed little amp that sounds as good as it looks.

I'm hoping this amp comes in under $200.00 so the Mini^3, MiniBox E+ and C&C XO have more compitition;-)

I will have one later this week and anticipate comparing it to a well broken in Reverence and other amps.

Hey, Hey! The P2 showed up. I am amazed at some of the shipping speeds from China. Brand new the unit is clean and clear. The gain switch is a nice and an effective option. Of course much more listening and time on the unit now for impressions but it sounds better than a lot of units I have heard from the beginning.

At $139.00 this is a very nice buy. The sound belies the price. Great fun these days.

Nice, $139,00 is just too Do I need it; probably not! Do I want it; Hmm, this is a trick question right? Will I get to have it; depends on who knows I'm gettin' it
