I've recently disconnected my PC from my headphone setup - I always use my CD player or the Squeezebox touch as source - so I had to find a solution to use headphones with my PC. I've settled for this, uh, high-end solution, consisting of a Behringer UCA-222 and my modded T50RP. The result sounds surprisingly good!

Did you build your own M^3?  How do you like it.  Does it have the power you need?

The main thing that scared me off building the M^3 at least is it's low amount of power.

Then again, the LCD-2 and entire Denon line don't need that much power, so it should be fine in his case.

M^3 low power?  Not as much as the B22 I know.  But not low.

Just rechecked the specs on AMB's website. Indeed far more power than I remember.

Weird. I remember the low power of the M3 being a deal breaker, but looking at it again this is simply not true.
Ah well, my Beta22 is powerful enough to power small speakers, and hopefully my Lambdas too. That's quite a feat for a headphone amp.

How are you liking them? Any good?

post #7226 of 18812

No, I did not build my own, but owing this amp has inspired me to give it a try.  I find that they have plenty of power.  I only need the gain at about 10 o'clock to drive the LCD-2's.  Mine is build by YBM audio, which I picked up off the forums.  YBM offers alot of different upgrades.  When I was searching for a new amp, I was looking for something that could drive the LCD-2's but would also have good synergy with my Denon's as well.  I really wanted a Burson, but when this came up I thought I'd give it a try as it was another amp I was looking at.  I am very pleased with the results! Not only that but I also was able to get a great DAC by CI audio, so if I feel the need to go back to tubes later I have the freedom to swap out.

Very clean ensemble, HiFiGuy528. I nearly bought the Duet2 back in May (2011). Placed an order and was placed on a waiting list but asked for a refund later that day. I'm still curious about the performance.

post #7229 of 18812

Yes, very nice setup HiFiGuy, the Apogee Duet 2 looks great, and I love the colors of these three units and how they go together.

It could easily pass for a listening station inside an audio boutique.
