In ordering for an Headstage Amp patience IS an absolute virtue.

 

Be prepared to wait.... :D

 

Suggestion: Just go along with your normal life and forget about it. It will come.

 

How can I get back to my normal life after reading all these here, unless you mean pressing the refresh button = normal life?  :D  Now one more great review from flinkenick!  :L3000:

 

I write to Robert and offer him a beer if he happens to be here in Hong Kong :wink: In no way a bribe for a faster delivery.  :biggrin:  Just showing my (our?) appreciation for his unbelievable efforts and endurance spending months in an industrial park somewhere in China......who's gonna share the bill?  Anyone?  LOL

Yeh! If I'm there I'll offer him a six-pack of ice cold San Miguel for his efforts. Too bad we have only Tsingtao here in Italy.

Good choice!  I like the San Miguel draft!  :beerchug:  Though Moscato is my new favorite  :biggrin:

Correct me if I'm wrong but the LCD-2 only has an impedance of about 50-70 ohm right - so that's very easy to drive. At least that's what came up after a quick search. A while back someone posted being very content with the 5P driving a HD 800 which has an impedance of 300 ohm.

 

Concerning the hiss, I only use gain setting I when I connect to my mac I believe and even if you'd ever hear hiss its gone when you play music. Connecting to an ipod, DX90 or P1 I have the gain switch on 0 and there is no hiss what so ever. In short, I have never had any issues with hiss.

You also gotta look at the sensitivity (edit: and power requirement) of the LCD-2. It's 101dB / 1mW which isn't actually that bad, but it needs a lot of power to be able to sound great (1-4W) via voltage swing which the Arrow probably won't be able to provide.

Thanks for correcting me - honestly I have no experience with headphones at all ;)

In short: it'll be loud, but it won't sound good.

 

Edit: relative to a large desktop amp that is.

Is Robert shipping out orders now or is it still a 6+ month wait time?

That's a million dollar question! :biggrin:

 

Robert writes on the 5TX product page that 'New orders will ship in September'.  Well, I hope he can make it!  :wink:
