The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 378

post #5656 of 25978

I ordered my black ELE DAC from travelinwind on Dec 1st and got it on the 12th. No problems with it at all. It's everything I'd hoped it would be and more, especially since it's actually my first DAC! I'm pairing it with my E11 and Grado SR60s. I do find it to be somewhat bright without the amp, so the E11 is a really nice match for it. I've clocked in a lot of hours with it in the past week, and couldn't be happier.

 

However, now I'm thinking about a desktop amp so my wife can borrow the E11 once in a while. Does anyone have a recommendation for a budget amp that would pair well with the ELE and my Grados?

Thanks for the recommendation.  Getting the E11 was my preference, but I wanted to bounce the idea off folks who have a lot more experience with this kind of audio than I do. Cheers,

Lol! Indeed. He'll be put out of his misery soon though - it's got to be the end of the world somewhere by now!

What time is the world supposed to end on Eastern Standard Time?

I'm planning to get the ELE and pair it with the Go-VIBE mini box amp for my desktop. Has anyone tried this setup?

5:11 am but remember this: Matthew 24:36 "But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father."  cool.gif

Or just, you know, it's all superstition and only scientific tools can approach accurately describing the universe.

Are we really going to get into this kind of debate in the discovery thread? 

post #5665 of 25978

Iunno, ask #5660 and #5662. We need to reach consensus first.

As I looked into this more, I realize that the E11 cannot be charged while listening.  It runs only on battery power. Since I will be using the ELE DAC and amp at my desktop (I don't even own a laptop), portability is not a requirement. Having it connected to a power source while listening is actually preferable.  I have noticed that Bravo amps have been very highly praised in this forum, specifically, the Bravo Ocean.  However, on Bravo's website, I also see the Bravo V2 which seems to be identical to the Ocean except for the metal case.  Since the cost of the V2 ($69.99) is only a bit more than half that of the Ocean ($129.99), the V2 just might be a great buy.  Has anyone here been able to compare these two to see if there are, in fact, any sonic differences?  What does almost twice the cost provide other than a better housing? Thanks!

Also interested in what gibosi posted!

It's been 31 days since I ordered the ELE from eBay user travelinwind and there is no sign that it will arrive so I requested a refund. May try with another seller from Hong Kong or go with the SMSL Fort instead.

Do not order stuff from China without a tracking number.  The tracking number fee is $2.  Even if it does not cost you anything, it is uncomfortable to take part in a transaction that resulted in a loss to the seller because of mail loss.  With a tracking number, you ensure that your package will arrive.

Don't order from kyuaya520, cuz i placed my order on the 21st of last month and have yet to get it. No ship notice, no tracking, no communication no nothing. Just contacted the seller to see what's up. But the last day of estimated arrival is the 27th of this month though so..... still got a couple of days before i am going to file a complaint.
