Hmm, the PA2V2 didn't seem to do much with my DT880...

Considering that the HD 25s are a precursor to the HD280s I can understand why you are so happy about the improvements. I'd be interested to see where you've set the gain screws.

The PA2V2 is far better than the E5. As soon as I got my PA2V2, I found a buyer for my E5.

Looks like yours are in the same position as mine, possibly a bit higher. Many thanks for the pix which I am sure will help other PA2V2 owners.

I still own a PA1 (from 2004) , PA2V1 and PA2V2 - still waiting for a PA2V3 to materialise

is there anyway to stop the interference between the amp and my cell phone?

 

it's usable on wifi, but when on 3G it's not usable at all. it sounds great, but i like to stream music and there is a lot of noise from wifi and 3G.

 

Edit: the E5 has the same interference as the PA2V2. i get no noise whatsoever when i plug my headphones directly into my source. so it is the cable or the amps themselves?

I'm assuming that what I circled here are the gain screws......

My PA2V2 is an older one, Feb. 2006, and it does not appear to have these.

So I guess it's a good thing I am not using IEM's.

Right you are. I'm sure you could email Gary to ask about your version, though.

No problem, just happy to help!

post #59 of 699

I watch this thread and wonder if the PA2v2 isn't the longest running amp in its current version. Also, I wonder if Gary will ever create a PA2v3 or why he hasn't become a member of Head-Fi...or has he???

 

I'm amazed at the number of these amps made.

I just ordered mine a couple hours ago, and it will ship tomorrow! I also must hail the quick response and admirable customer service of Gary, he offered to adjust the gain to suit my (relatively) low impedance headphones. (taps foot very impatiently...this will be a long week)
