Custom milled by Nick and laser etched markings. The ones now are fine, but the prospect of getting even better quality end plates has made me wait.

Cool, I did notice the "regular" ones have words that can fade off.  Do you know if current owners can buy the upgraded ones?

Is there info on the JDS website or blog about the new end plates?

Sorta? He reported that he bought a 700 lbs CnC machine and is churning out test plates. I emailed him about new plates for the C421 and he told me sometime August.

Thanks for the info.  So all the words/icons will be etched in rather than painted on or however it is now?

I was talking to him about the subpar silk screening and I believe he implied he was lasering it. As you can see by the blog posts, he is getting the plates brushed and anodized then lasering it. So I hope it will be the same for the next batch of plates. I personally can't wait. My DIY cMoy BB v2.03 isn't cutting it anymore. Too much noise in the circuit.

Oh my god, I just ordered a C421 OPA2227 last week. Now ... okey anyway what have done is done. Hopefully no internal things have been changed in C421s, just the end plate is okey.

Lol, I'm not trying to create a uprising. Nothing is different with the amp. Just the end plates.

So would an impedance adapter be more beneficial for this amp with low z iems? I know that usually the adapters bring the low end forward but I'm curious to try one with my SM3s.

It will just mess up thr FR curve of the IEM if you didn't have a properly
matched and built adapter. No mach a point on using one.

Subscribed!   C421-OPA2227 should be delivered in a day or 2.  Also owner of a JDS Cmoy (love it) and a JDS O2.  I was originally planning on returning the recently ordered O2 against the C421 .... but I think I may just keep both now....
