If he is in Japan, there's a better chance he has got the Genuine one

I was in Japan last month for a holiday, bought the E1 set there which is much much cheaper than what they sell here in Singapore.
As for the opamps, I bought it off a japanese webstore. I guess it should be legit since I compared this with the real vs fake picture posted earlier in this thread.
But this batch's number is 101? I always see 206 or 902 :O

Nice setup man gs1000.gif

 

Is that a Bottlehead tube amp, if so did you build it yourself?

Yes it is, and yes I did.

Has Asus ever published (or has anybody measured) the output impedance of the Essence One? I have searched for specifications in reviews and the Asus website without success. The TI specsheet for the NE5532 indicates 0.3 Ohms, but I wonder if that is accurate for the end of the line (headphone jack).

Guess we will have to wait until the folks at Innerfidelity do some measures.

It was measured at 100, 1000, 10000 Hz; at 100mV, 1,7 V; with load resistors of 30,66 and 222,4 ohm.


This is a quote of my old post regarding the headphone output.

For other outputs it does not matter as they are usually connected to high impedance inputs and the current drain is low.

 

Palmfish, NE5532 is not at the position of output buffer. There is LM4562.

Some variant in Australian models I seen. Newer models comes with LME49720 (Plastic) in the output buffer.
