What about going higher than 60? It goes to 99... and don't forget the internal jumper which allows for higher output.

I just afraid that going higher that 70 effects my phones to bad way.

Why would that hurt your headphones? is it too loud? like hurting your ears or something? cuase if that were the case im wondering why you want to go louder...

After about 8 hours on it. The impressions so far is SMOOTH...that's only word I would like to describe D2. I have DX100 which uses the same chip.  They somewhat have similar sound signature. But I have to admit that D2 sounds smoother with more liquidity to the sound. D2 just sounds super flat which doesn't have any of the little edgy sound that DX100 has.The bass control is better and more powerful with more depth.

I've heard that too loud sound can break phone's driver unit. That's what i worried about.

If youre still able to listen to it, i dont really see it being a problem for the drivers.

maybe, but what's the difference between using more power on one amp compared to getting a more powerful amp?  If it's not too load for your ears it wont be too much for the phones (esp with hd650's)

Anyone figured out to use the apple remote with D2? The Sony is so clunky!

Just received my Anedio D2. Works great, except I can not shutdown my speaker output (XLR) when I use my headphone. Does it work the same way for you, or when you plug your headphone the XLR or RCA outputs automatically shutdown? Do you need to do anything to shutdown the XLR/RCA outputs when you want to use the headphone?

I think it is a case where both the line out and headphone jack are always active. So when I use the internal amp, I just power down whatever amp I might have connected to the XLR or RCA outputs.

Thanks project86, so it looks like having the line out and headphone running at the same time is the normal operation for the Anedio D2. So your suggestion of powering down the power amplifier is good. I would prefer to keep my power amplifier on though, so that it stays warm.

How good is the built-in amp for HE-500 or T50RP (Paradox)? Versus Lyr, for example?

That's strange, if you feel that you need to push past 60 with classical, it's obvious that classical at 60 is still less loud than pop at 40.
Besides, how do you think an amp is going to solve your volume issues? By getting the headphone to play louder, that's how.
Incidentally, that can also be done by turning up the volume on the Anedio D2.

The lyr goes louder and drives more headphones but the D2 amp is better in everything else. You can compare it with the V200 in quality. It's excellent for your needs.

That's cool! In your experience, is it better to leave normal gain or to switch to high gain?
