I'm very sorry about quoting the picture, but there's nothing else to quote here.

that's my rig...minus the amp. And I have rubies for now...I've been waiting 2.5 months for Wilson to send me back my r+b X3i's. And I use that Zune skin too.

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

(edited)

Oh and maybe send Uncle Wilson an email, he didn't take anywhere near that long for mine! And the Rubies are veeeery nice!

I had the Mylarone X3/XB/X3i/XBi myself, and they all sounded better with an amp on the D2.

There can be a huge difference in the sound quality testing the same earphone amp’d VS not amp’d … you might even make bad sounding earphones sound much better.

You can get it from here.

It's a remake of a korean skin by one of the resident iAudiophile.net flash developers.

@ Lost Phil: what case is that with your amp? Looks pretty cool.

It's a mutilated minidisc case Just had to cut into it to let the volume knob through. Nice and handy since it case a belt clip on the back.

(Nothing like doing things on the cheap eh?)
