Probably the Acousticbuoy DAC 2488 V.3

Mostly a Cambridge Audio DacMagic.

Welcome aboard.

Does a Dynalo count? It was the first amp I built after I got here.

Though it's disembodied at the moment. Awhile back, I found someone here selling a completed Dynalo board and I grabbed it. I also have two completed STEPs. Sooner or later, I'll case those up into a Dynamid/Gilmore Reference. There are a lot of tubes around here - a good solid state amp should be on the rack, too.

I don't know what counts, but that's a cool DIY! I did some research on the whole Dyna-variations when you posted in another thread about them.... Looks like you can build a monster if you choose!

You already have the iBasso. I'd save up for a used DacMagic. It's a pretty decent budget DAC and is the one I used when I had the GLite.

Anyone using the Pico DAC with  the G Lite and Grado RS1

Thread Starter 

I had the GLite with DPS and DacMagic at one point, paired with a Grado HF-2 and RS-1. While this was over a year and a half ago, I can safely say that I was liking what I was hearing. The GLite is a neutral but somewhat analytical amp-- reason for some to bemoan its 'lack' of bass presence in favor of the Headamp GS-1-- and was a better pairing with the HF-2's in my opinion. (Later, I found that it was a fantastic amp for an early-model set of HD600's.) Still, the RS-1's sounded very good with rock and acoustic recordings. I certainly do miss my GLite from time to time. Loved the hell out of that little amp!

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I've been away for almost three years (addict had to step away from the Head-fi crack pipe)... I'm happy to see continued love for the Glimore Lite. I ordered mine almost four years ago, and still use it just about every work day. I did have to send it in to Justin for a DPS-to-Glite cable repair, but otherwise it's been rock-solid. For the last three-plus years, it's driven my modded Denon "MD-5000" beautifully, along with my Yuin Pk1 and Freqs.

 

The Freqs were recently stolen, and I purchased a pair of Ety hf3, and those are sounding great as well from the Glite.

 

After a bunch of buying and selling -- and the years away -- I am so glad I ended up with Glite+DPS and Pico. Quality products that have held their value (monetarily and performance-wise). Thanks, Justin and Headamp!

I just leant my G-Lite out for an extended period to a friend and fellow Head-Fi'er.  He offered to buy it, but honestly I couldn't bear to part with it permanently... it's just one of those amps I'd always like to keep.

Been a long time since anyone has posted here... but I have joined the ranks of Glite+DPS owners. Very pleased with this amp and the AKG k601.

Anybody tried the glite with a maverick d2? As a less expensive alternative to the mhdt choices?

I'm joining the party late, so please forgive me and ignore me if you're all elsewhere.  But Andrew sold me a mint Gilmore Lite, which I wanted for dynamic and IEM use; it runs my 334 at another level than I've experienced, so I wanted to register my deep appreciation for this diminutive and over-achieving amp.
