I thought about it enough to warrant sending Decware an email. The lead time is 8-12 weeks and I'm too impatient to wait that long.

Is there such thing as a single-ended 10 watt headphone amp? That's what I'm searching for.

don't know exact wattages , but how about the bryston bha-1, or the big hifiman(5 watts-50ohm) ? both have single ended as well as balanced headphone outputs

the bryston:

  • Hi-Z Load: 20 Volts into 600 ohms (667mW) at 001% THD + N at 20-20K
  • Low-Z Load: 4 volts into 32 ohms (500 mW) at 001% THD + N at 20-20K

the EF-6 is single ended front to back.....the 4 pin XLR is a courtesy output and runs as single ended.....5 watts per channel

Do you mean single-ended as in output type of single-ended as in circuit design?

 

If the former, the AudioGD SA31SE, as  i019791 pointed out (I own it and it is technically a very,  very good amp - pretty much at the point where I dont feel the urge to spend any more on solid-state amplification, despite having a fairly flexible budget).

 

If the latter, 300B SETs typically provide about 8W output.    I think that would be overkill - I used to get complaints from my neighbors listening to Stravinsky on a 3Wpc 2A3 amp, so i cannot imagine you'll need that much wattage for headphones.   Also, tube amps clip a lot more gently/pleasantly than solid state amps, so the peak power requirements can be a lot lower (at 110dB, you arent listening to fine details anyway).

The ALO Studio 6 has some serious design flaws from the schematics and stuff I've read and another problem is it that it is a $600-700 amp in parts in a fancy case priced at $6000?

DefQon, where have you heard this? From everything I've read it sounds like a world class amp.

When I listened to it, it sounded very good to my ears as well.  Maybe I am missing something.

Hi all,

 

I would like to find out if there will be noticeable difference in using higher-end DAC. I'm currently using ODAC with Soloist for LCD-2.2 for quite a while.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Cheers

Thank you guys for your recommendations!

I bought the Schiit Lyr with the Uber Bifrost DAC as well :D

Waiting it to be shipped with impatience.
