The ALO Mk3 bass control is a lovely thing.

+1.  You really grow into it too. At first it didn't seem like it did that much, but now I love it.

I'm powering the Fostex T10, Beyer T1 and Senns HD800 on high and the HD650 balanced (so far my only balanced cable and won't be my last, seriously better than stock)  on medium.  It is a powerhouse on the same level as my Meier Classic Amp and that amp sits on a shelf, ridiculous power and more punch than the MKll.

I much preferred the RXMkIIIB+ over the Vorzuge Duo I had for the LCD-X. The treble seemed too rolled off on the latter amp and playing around with the treble & bass switches caused new problems. On the other hand the bass control on the Rx is terrific.

The RX MkIII noise floor/hiss level may be too high for the Westones. I don't have experience with Westones, but the hiss is very high with all of my iems.

Those are fine "budget" amps, but they don't have the push of the Rx Mk3.  Its quite impressive what this amp does with headphones that don't need that much power "on paper".  My TH600s should only need the power of the amps you listed, but these cans really open up with this ALO amp...

thats odd as specs wise the fiio looks to have more power and the c&c xo2 has a lot more power I just need an upgrade to these amps. was looking at this and the ibasso pb-2.

The ALO is an end game portable amp, IMHO.

Even better than the RSA 71B.

I think it's the best portable amp on the market for full size headphones, comparable to many desktop amp.

Yeah, but it hisses like hell with IEM's

Which is why I said it's the best portable amp for full-sized headphones.

post #869 of 914

Although, I can hear the hiss even with my full sized W3000anv.

post #870 of 914

Going for a portable setup and thinking about purchasing this amp as an end game portable amp for full-sizes. How different are the changes between the original and the +?
