Thanks for the suggestion! Will definitely look into it. Maybe save up for Christmas time sales....

It's been a couple years since I read this forum, but I still have my P-51 Mustang that I use with Shure SE530. I think I remember when Ray first develop the Mustang, he tuned the amp using Ultimate Ears and Shure E500 (top of the line shure at the time) I have no regret pairing the Shure with the Mustang. I still use my old iRiver iHP-120 for source with portable rig. Geeze, it must be 6 or 7 years ago that I bought the Mustang. Still sounds like brand new!

 

(edit: I also use the silicone 'triple-sleeve' type sleeves with my shures.)

Hi, guys!

I want to order Theorem 720 DAC Headphone Amplifier (Copper). So I would really appreciate it if you could help me to find the answer to 3 questions.

1. Does Theorem 720 DAC Headphone Amplifier (Copper) bypass the iPod’s amp and dac?

2. Do I have to buy a line out dock (LOD) cable if I want to use 720 DAC Headphone Amplifier (Copper) with iPod Classic which has 30 pin connector or LOD cable is included in the package contents? What LOD cable can you recommend?

3. Will my Shure SE535 earphones sound good with Theorem?

Thx!

I am probably going to be burned at the stake but why would anyone buy an amp that costs twice the price of the headphones?

 

At that price I would buy the shure se846.

the headphones can be sold at far greater volumes than amps of similar quality (easily 100x as many pairs if not 1000x) so they can be sold at lower prices

Shure Se535 and Leckerton UHA-6S mk2 are an excellent combination if you have a good source like dx5

RSA shadow seems like another great option, pricey though. I will be buying one this week.

jds labs c5/c421

Pretty sure the c421 has an impedance of 10ohm, not suitable for the 535.
The c5 is .62, better choice.

not that i noticed, i was using a lod and ipod with it, seemed fine to me...

 

i prefer the c5 to the c421, however they are both good.

 

now i use the rsa sr71-b and well its phenomenal with any iem.

I have never sampled the c421 or c5, just going by what I have read during my search for an amp. Spoke to Ray today and he recommended the shadow.
The sr-71b looks awesome, expensive though.
Spoke to JDS too and was told the c5 was made for iem.

but very worth it, i havent found a portable amp that beats it, +21 hi gain, massive voltage swing, more than enough for on head over ear and iem's

 

i have the ibasso pb2 thicker amp but very powerful, i like this amp too for the 535
