Actually, I think 2 ohms should be fine for most anything  Why would anyone design an IEM with an impedance that drops much below 16 ohms? So almost every DAP can become non linear? The old TF10 drops to 8 in the highs and it's an issue and a reason why the diversity in opinion on them. No DAP could drive them properly when they appeared. How is that reasonable? What were sony thinking with the XBA-4. A ground up design that can't be linear with their own DAPs. 

 

The accepted spec for DAPs is to drive a load from a low of 16 ohms to whatever they choose for a high side. That means an output impedance of 2 ohms or less is optimum. Not designing phones to meet that is ridiculous with the number that get used for phones etc with much worse output stages. All that said, there's still some wiggle room as a a db or so variation may be less important than other aspects of a design but why go there?

The AKG3003s are 8 Ohms to my knowledge. But I didn't have any issues since my DX100 is less than 1 ohm :). I think the Studio V had some hiss with it though and generally speaking too much detail anyways with the AKGs prevalent treble. The V made them a little strident at that.

the top should be fine with either. You may lose some bass but were talking a db or so on something with extra bass.

Will be interesting.

already signed up for it, I am on their email list x-D, and from what it sounds like there is going to be a special introduction price. Dont quote me on this.

I honestly said all I know. I do not even know what the improvement are but i assume it is an improvement over the golden studio V.

No worries, audionewbi. smile.gif

 

Am very keen to know because the Studio V is a great sounding portable and a successor may likely be even better.
