Not too surprising as planars are (generally speaking) thirsty beasts. 

 

I guess that seems to be the case then. The Fiio E11 seems to have more power than the PA2V2 because I can listen to much louder volumes on the E11 without any distortion or clipping using high gain.

I didn't appreciate this amp that much when I paired it with iPhone 3GS.

3GS has much noise even when you bypass the amp by using Dock Cable. And this amp actually amplifies the noise level.

At times I even felt that the Headphone out was much better.

 

Now I pair it with iPhone5 with the lightning adapter and PA2V2, I am now happy.

The PA2V2 has an internal gain knob. Have you tried adjusting those?

Yes, I tried adjusting the blue gain screws inside the amp and I was still getting bass distortions at 75% - 80% volume. I just ended up returning the amp to Gary.

I recently bought a set of Gemini hrs 1000,and Takstar Hi2050.I wanted to know if anyone has or has heard this amp with these headphones?
post #615 of 699
very sorry for the dumb question but im thinking about getting one of these and been reading alot about them. but i do not fully understand the gain control thing. i have a pair of modded Grado 325is and will be using a ipod 160gb classic. is this basically a listen and change (opinion) thing or certain headphones will be set at one thing and grados 325 at one thing ect.......... please help me understand in kindergarten terms :) thanks
