Thanks! No need to ask for the newer ferrites. All Black Edition c421's have the latest set of parts.

Thank you! Now that I had the chance to see both colors side-by-side, I started to enjoy the black version a bit more... beerchug.gif

I bought the new All-Black edition of the c421 amp early last week, it shipped on the 25th heading to the land down under.

Can't wait to receive my new toy from JDS Labs, hopefully it will be here before the weekend :-)

If anyone buys the new end plates and doesn't need their old ones please PM me.  The writing is getting rubbed off of mine and I don't have the funds to buy the new ones.  If your old ones are just going to collect dust I could use them

Thanks,

Steve

i would also like to praise John for his customer service.  He has been very responsive to my emails - under an hour response time - even on the weekend! beerchug.gif

I am now going through amp withdrawal since I sent it in the other day - I had no idea how much I like this amp until it was gone!

Gawd John I'm going to go broke man, I got your cMoy bb 2.03 2x9V and it's not quite enough power for my Dt 880s although I love it with my Bass heavy Xb700s and it's wonderful when used with my PC, still though I'm curious how does the c421 AP8260 sound with DT 880s, is it strong enough to power a 250 Ohm can, in addition the Ap8260 is the transparent opamp is it not? My cmoy has the 2227 and I'd like a little more bass but with more control to it as well as more power over all because the cMoy is ALMOST enough but not quite enough as I'm starting to notice... but I do like it <3

 

But I'm soon to jump on a c421 Ap 8620 soon and well the reviews r wonderful for it so hoping it will be worth the money I shouldn't be spending on it <3

My c421 could power my Senns HD600s on High Gain well enough (but I don't listen to ear-shattering levels though... volume was great to my ears and I believe the HD600s are 300ohm...)

I'm not talking Power for Volume because the cMoy can power them WAY louder than I'll even listen [heck my crappy Fiio E6 can get teh Volume high] the issue is The bass Quality... with my E6 the bass sounds well terrible it's VERY crackly and... has NO impact or anything... just BAD

 

I'm noticing that same quality with some songs on my cMoy

 

Nujabes Luv Sic Part 1 [Shing02] is the first I noticed it in ....

Oh oh got you!

You are talking about distortion then...

 

No distortion with the c421.

In fact, I bought the c421 at first to drive my Denon D5000s (which are actually not that power hungry!) because on my CmoyBB, sound distorted a lot when increasing volume. Same headphone on the c421, clean as a whistle (even with bass boost active! though I did not use this function a whole lot!)
