I have my new toy....

Is a very very good amp... I am amazed of the very good sound... it tends to be a little bit bright but i think that's because of the small size ergo ( problems with the condenser bank)...

 

I am trying it with the Denons AH-A100 wowww...

 

I think this kind of engineering is far away from crap and is close to the best around, and the portability is extraordinary, plus you got rechargeable batteries...

 

amazing...

I have been listening the amplifier...

is very very good indeed..

I think is the best option for portability and price... Remember to use a good cable.

TCG-T... i think is overall better... is a very power amp, very plain... a little bit bright..

on the other side.. you have something more.. colored... c&c is a good amp, but if you are looking for a plain, good sound... go for the tcg

First time post, been lurking a while here.

 

Received the amp from china today, via ebay shenzhenAudioStore.  Shipped in 10 days.  Amp arrived without pouch, but with interconnect cable.  Also, the input and output connectors were silver metal , no pink or green :) The blue power led is blindingly bright so I probably will replace it (swap it with the green charging led).  I also noticed on the interconnect inner cabling that it is directional; the sticker around the cable is on mine on the source side.

The sound is open and even, I allready hear a difference now, without any burn-in.

Not that I mind :) but ... where the OP received a mini-cable with "Pailiccs" connectors, mine came with "Palic" atsmile.gif connectors.  As I said, I don't mind.  The printing on the inner sleeve of the cable said single-crystal copper or so I think. I'm sure it'll sound good enough for being a gift.

There isn't any give between the woven outer sleeve and the inner cable.  It is as thick as it seems :)

Thanks for the pics and impressions! Yours looks better than mine with the silver jacks, but not a big deal. 

 

By the way, I too was confused about the Palic/Pailiccs issue. I think it is just a translation thing, as they seem to use both:

After I wrote wangshuzeng about the change to amplification chip tpa302 (from tpa152), the website at tcgcn got updated.

 

A new tpa152 costs about 3 euros.  I think I'll buy and solder it myself.  I've never done any smd before confused_face.gif
