JDSLabs C421 Preorder is live... - Page 47

post #691 of 692

I just received the amp. Thanks, Steve!

 

Initial impression: very different from the last C421 I owned. Maybe I had OPA2227?

 

Soundstage is larger. In fact, I think it's also larger than O2. 

Overall sound signature is very clean and smooth.

Low gain sounds horribly compressed to me. Like playing back 64kbps MP3 without the distortion.

 

From memory, I heard better bass with E12, and also warmer, more textured mid.

 

Let's see what Steve has to say about E12.

hmm neat, I like big sound stage, clean is nice... less bass and less textured mids eww

 

still I don't like Fiio amps tbh. The two I've owned have always sounded very dark... love fiio with my edm cans but not anything elese xD

 

N I hope the C5 will b cleaner than the C4
