I tend to run on high gain esp with my M-100. I crank up the vol quite a bit. The VAmp actually has more power than the Go-DAP so I don't crank that up as much.

Sorry to be sounded so dumb but can you explain the difference between the hi and lo setting ?
I mean whats the pro,s amd cons?
Currently im on lo gain on my go dap and m100 and even in those setting i never really need full turn on the volume knob to get to the listening volume that im comfortable with.
So do i need to set it on hi?
And whats the pros and cons?
Perhaps a technical explanation on how this work?
Thank you, im so newbie in this kind of things, thanks once again

Ok so I am trying to decide on the Go Dap with the upgrades, or just getting a DX100.  I am just looking for the best sound for my JH 16-pro's.

 

I also considered just upgrading the JH 16 pro's to JH-3a's and using the iphone.  

 

Crazy there are so many options.

I think that decision may be easier than you think. Since you've posted in the GD-04 for iPhone 4 thread, presumably you mean the Go-DAP 4.0 and VentureCraft doesn't make those anymore. Nor will they have the upgrades that I talked about back in 2011.

 

So that leaves you with the DX100 option only unless you're open to other Go-DAP X or Go-DAP DD Socket 1, or other DAP options.

 

Sadly I've never owned JH products therefore can't comment on the synergy. However I've owned other IEMs of varying brands and have not found any to have bad synergy with the Go-DAP 4.0 (or X for that matter). Mind you though my 4.0s and Xs are upgraded.

I mean whats the pro,s amd cons? depends on the phones you using.with low impedance sensitive iems you might get hiss on high setting and volume either go loud to quickly and the opposite for higher impedance full size cans.
Currently im on lo gain on my go dap and m100 and even in those setting i never really need full turn on the volume knob to get to the listening volume that im comfortable with.
So do i need to set it on hi? nope as long as your happy with the sound and volume control.
And whats the pros and cons? getting the right volume level as per your preference meaning quicker or slower.
Perhaps a technical explanation on how this work? no need to get technical on this, just experiment with it whichever you prefer using with your current phones than just stick with it.

Words in Red are my answers.

Actually they still have the white version(OPA2134) though they have stop production....might be the last unit or last few to clear(reason for the pricedrop to 185usd).They might not offer any upgrades but try emailing them(you never know) cause they have great customer service.IMHO you won't regret getting the Go-DAP unit 4.0(assuming that's what your referrring to) and the money saved by skipping the DX100 can be better spend on more music content or blow it all on the upgrade to JH-3a amp later since I'm guessing your loving the JH 16 pro and the JH-3a is really built for it but using it as a portable just negates whatever subtle differences in SQ unless your using it in a quiet room.

Not sure with the Go Dap. But my iO7 4S work well with my Fostex HP P1 and Onkyo NDS1.

Ehr33, the HP-P1 doesn't officially and actively charge the iDevice - it's more a side benefit trickle charging.

The Go-DAP 4.0 had an issue in the past that when iOS6 was released the 4.0 would charge all the time regardless of the amp vs I-amp setting. A firmware update by VentureCraft was needed to fix this issue.

I've not tried updating my 4S yet but it seems owners of the V-moda Vamp (pretty much the same thing as the Go-DAP 4.0) seems to work fine with iOS 7 - at least by the Vamp owners. As such I think there shouldn't be any problems with the Go-DAP 4.0 too.

Both the VAMP and Unit 4.0 now uses firmware 2.0.1 and it is fine with iOS7.
