If so, how was it?
I'm thinking of getting the O2+ODAC as a temporary low budget system to run the HD800s.
I dont see any issue with the O2 and the HD800. The HD800 is well within the O2's capability.
What I have personally seen is this combo will allow you to hear what your cans really sound like.
Try many different CD's etc.....you will be amazed at how revealing and accurate music will be good or bad...
For the price you cant go wrong and as you spend mega-bucks on your future systems it will be fun to compare back this LOW dollar setup!
The ODAC arrived yesterday, had to solder a 3.5 audio out jack to the board and listened for 2 hrs with LCD2's and Grado 325is....will report back later with details....will put the ODAC in a seperate X Box enclosure with both mini and RCA jacks functional.
All this stuff for approx $250 from JDALabs.....great service and always answered my email and phone calls promptly and courteously....
And it really sounds...well like no sound...its the source and the cans.....a very nice inexpensive setup that will allow u to hear your source and cans....as objectively as it gets in this hobby or pastime etc...
Its a very neutral amp and it will drive the LCD2's R1 or R2 very, very well...the power needed to drive these cans are pretty much the same the impedance is a bit different but nothing this amp cant drive loud enough to cause hearing loss if your not careful.
Do you mind elaborating the purpose of this post? I find this incredibly unhelpful and borderline religious (not to mention misguided, subjective bias anyone?).
Fanboyism taken too far.
No one has ever said that it doesn't measure nicely. Proves nothing.
You are one of those believers of no amp does or should sound any different and if it does it's flawed or wrong.
Yet, I'm going to presume you haven't listened to much gear, therefore, you don't trust your ears.
I don't subscribe to measurements yet, they do have their rightful place in the scheme of things.
The O2 is a great value ODAC as well, However I've heard plenty amps that are better, of course, IMO. But you'll just chalk it up to my love for distortion.
