I'd like to apologize to Ivan, I received mine already but still haven't gotten around to assembling it. I'll have a review out once I have some time with teh finished product.

just got my MC1 kit, made it in an hour or so, very easy build, and so far it sounds good, waiting for my line out dock tho. Will post pics soon, i used the box that my zippo lighter came it, it looks quite good. Great little kits MIU.

well ive been listening to it for a while, and i really like this little amp, i just got my LOD and its sounds great, but ive noticed, if you go beyond 1/2 volume on my akg's it starts to clip, and distort, but i dont get anyway near those levels, it is just and observation.

Thanks again for the sample. I would have done some OpAmp swapping if I had kept mine as I was hoping for a bit more from it. Of course, I don't use cans on the go so my need was not high but it didn't improve on the touch with IEMs. It was a very welcome addition to someone I met that had a bad channel in their Ipod. Cost me a battery. I enjoyed the mints.biggrin.gif

You're using K518s?

post #203 of 205

yes i am, i havent the funds to upgrade yet. but i do like them, sturdy and with the mods i have done, are fairly balanced now. great entry can. do you like you K81's?

 

i think the clipping may be due to the small caps included in the kit, because with a prebuilt cmoy i had, it didnt have this problem.

 

ive also ordered 2 different op amps to try with it.
