Predator for my iriver clix2? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
I did that already, as I mentioned in my first post in this thread. And it does make the Clix2 sound much richer and wider, along with better bass slam. However, it sounds colored and somewhat different from a true lineout and USB DAC, a sign that it's headphone out isn't entirely neutral. However, this isn't a problem, only if you want a true-lineout sound.

in that case, do you prefer the coloured amped clix2 sound, or a true lineout sound?

Yes, I did try the Clix2 headphone-out at max volume.

lol then that would be in line with what i noticed for my clix 2 with the new predator that i tried at the shop. although that accessment was supposed to be inaccurate due to the predator not having been burned in.

What shop is this? I didn't know Ray Samuels allowed any stores to re-sell his amps?

As well, a brand new Predator amp will have the same sound signature as a burned in one, only not as refined. Don't be fooled into thinking that the Clix2 will ever sound identical to that of a lineout once the Predator is burned in. And yes, a line-out sound is what you want.

he doesn't? why wouldn't he have distributors around the world?
I tried it out at Jaben.

I've read that the predator's completely different when burned in and brand new. but yeah i think i'l have to change a player if i get the predator, so as to make my money's worth. anw, this gives me a reason to hold off for awhile, since there aren't any flash players in existence that can hold the amt of music i have.

Question is, do you REALLY need to have your entire collection on you when you travel?
