Audio GD C2C

post #1 of 657
Thread Starter 


It arrived this afternoon, delivered straight to my house via DHL. Im actually used to picking up stuff from the post office near the airport when packages are shipped via EMS, so DHL is better in this aspect



Kingwa was kind enough to lower the declared price, so my dues were lowered.



The box was very difficult to open. It was taped, even triple taped all over. The packaging was filled with the styro stuff. It came with a power cable which I plan to replace with a bigger DIY cable



Most have probably seen the pics in the Audio GD website



I haven't listened to it yet as I haven't gotten my DAC yet Im letting it burn in with music from my ipod

Im just happy, my first desktop amp

edit : added impressions

Ooh, I'm so ordering a Compass (Unless I find a cheap pair of HD650 first). All this Audio GD stuff is making me want one badly.

Just waiting for the funds to come in

I'll be very interested in impressions for this.

I just looked closely as the pics you posted, in one pic it says sample of speaker and wires.. well, I must say Kingwa sure has a good sense of imagination.. I wonder what hewould be declaring my 40 kg amp.. perhaps samples of bricks and construction materials ??...

I know its kinda funny, but my initial reaction was "OMG did I get the wrong package!!!"

Congrats insyte!

Look forward to impressions. Especially if you manage to compare it with Compass one day.

Any chance of seeing what's under the cover?

If I have enough money I'll try and get a compass before the promo period ends so i can have an amp/dac for my dorm (if not its the alien+mini^3)

I will probably attend a local meet around april, and I think I will be able to compare the C2C against a single ended beta22

I'm awaiting my upgraded version of the C2C, which I've also requested be re-tuned to be more neutral-sounding, as its only fault was that the slight bass boost it has doesn't go well with some of my headphones. I can tell you now, it's a significant jump from the Compass headphone amp, especially on high-impedance phones such as Senn HD-600s and HD-650s.

It looks like a lovely amp. I got my Shanling yesterday so I know how you feel. I thought about buying the C2C before I settled on the Shanling. Id be interested to know how you find it. I'm loving mine. First experience of good headphones and headphone amp.

Looks awesome, wonder how it stacks up with M3, probably the same idea...powerful

I can't wait to try it with the HD650. Im still patiently awaiting the arrival of my DAC, which shouldn't take long now, a fellow headfier is bringing it

And I think he is going to get an audio gd dac to replace the stello he is selling me More business for Kingwa
