My source is a Headroom UDAC with 2V output in Single ended. 
The volume is a little loud in 1/4. 
The Headphones you are going to use LCD-2 and Sennheiser HD 650. 
The high gain is 16dB and gain Medium is 10dB. 
Do you think the high gain, and the volume is already a bit high at 1/4 volume, may result in some distortion?

Thank you

I don't think you would get distortion but if you feel the level is high at 1/4 up on the volume control then it is worth trying the medium gain. You can always change it back!

Today i decided to listen to my old Concerto...

I found out that my left channel is not working. Tried with 3 headphones, 3 sources and 2 cables... Its faulty amp.

Its strange. One week ago it worked normally.

Left chnnel is not working at all...

 

How do i find out which component is faulty?

I would suggest contacting Jan Meier directly.

 

That is weird, for the amp to just fail like that. I have been using my Concerto pretty much daily for 6 (yes, SIX) years now and it is working perfectly.

I recently acquired Concerto to pair with HD650 and AQ Nighthawk. It is great pairing and I personally like it a lot.  I am not sure how it pairs with IEM though. Does anyone know what the output impedance of Concerto is? I tried to find it from google search but no avail...

The output impedance of the Concerto is 0 Ω, according to the original manual that I got with my purchase.
