Technically, no. But an amp is *much* more effective at correcting the D2's shortcomings than a resistor adapter - a bit more detail and wider stage for a start from what I can tell, if it's not placebo.
The adapter is only used because the low gain isn't quite low enough for my fairly low listening volume so I use it on high gain with the adapter.
I'm experimenting anyway
Oh and maybe send Uncle Wilson an email, he didn't take anywhere near that long for mine! And the Rubies are veeeery nice!
