Just got the amp today so I'm officially a G Lite owner! I'm currently feeding the Gilmore Lite through a uDac with monoprice rca interconnect.
Wow! I didn't realize how small this amp was. I was expecting something a bit bigger. The size is similar to the EF2 though not as wide but with more depth.
My cans are mostly low impedance so the knob on the G Lite rarely goes above the 9 o'clock position and generally stays at around 7 or 8 o'clock.
Build quality. This thing is built solid and in my opinion quite attractive with its brushed aluminum case.
Dead silent at normal volumes. I don't hear any type of hum or static until the volume knob hits 3 o'clock. I do hear a slight static or fizz but it's not too noticeable. Seeing as how I doubt I'll ever listen to this amp at ear shattering levels I'm more than fine with that.
Sound (using D2000s)
I'm coming from and EF2 and uDac and this destroys them in every sense. The bass on my D2000 is the tightest I've heard it with more impact than I remember. The amp seems pretty neutral to be honest. I've noticed increased detail, soundstage, and overall a better presentation than I've heard before. The speed is possibly faster than before though I haven't compared it to my other amps. I can definitely pick up stuff I've never heard before. On one of my songs, I noticed what I'd always thought was one note was two notes very close to one another that produce a rather interesting effect. My previous amp was an EF2 which gave me this unnatural coloration in the mids which I couldn't quite place my finger on and never settled with me. Veiled may be a word for it. Also unlike the EF2, I don't sense that the amp is holding the sound quality back. Clear would be a good word for this amp. I'll have to try it out with my other cans soon. It's safe to say I'm on my honeymoon with this amp.
