Out of curiosity, what kind of mods/hacks are you having done to the TubeDAC-11?

Many thanks for yours impressions, specially between 103/109. I suppose so, that there is no reason to find differences between them, but I´m happy to read it from you.

These days I had the opportunity to buy a G100, and it sounds really amazing!

Just pulled the trigger on the G109-S from Thomann. I'm in Cali, am I going to have to pay any import duties or associated fees??

I didn't have to but in California you might. I bought directly from Lake People though. You should be aware, the ones from Thomann will probably be set to 230 VAC mains voltage (for european power outlets). You might need to manually set it to 115V which I think requires a bit of soldering but should be easy. You can order them directly from Lake People, see the first post for instructions. They'll set it to 230/115V based on what country its shipping to.

I ordered my G109-S direct from LP.  When UPS delivered it, I didn't have to pay any fees (on the spot) to collect it.. though, I did get a $30 bill for customs/import fees in the mail a few days later (from UPS).  Not sure how it goes in Cali, but that was my experience as aresident of Washington (State).

Never trout about the voltage issue.... A little bit of soldering is a big deal as I'm looking for a plug and play solution... Ugh.

Does anyone know if G109S support different gains on the two headphone outputs at the same time?

post #98 of 210

Don't think so, the gain settings seem to be at the input stage (and there is only one two-channel amp inside, so only one set of gain jumpers).

Yeah, same gain level for both outputs. Separate external gain control would be nice.

Looking for a new ss-amp. Is the g109 a good match with the hd650?
post #101 of 210

It should be, yeah. It works great with my HD600.
post #102 of 210
Ok, thanks! Adding it to my shortlist.
post #103 of 210

Guys, do you know how much the G109-P weighs?  I plan to buy this through my forwarder and they charge me by dimension and weight. Couldn't find the info on the first page or the links.

 

Thanks!

My shipment notice said something about 2kg total weight, but I'd say the device itself is considerably less heavy...

post #105 of 210

hey guys I have a really stupid question: What is the point of balanced inputs if the amp only outputs to a 1/4th standard jack? Doesn't that ruin the whole point of having two independent signals if they just go to a normal jack?  I'd probably only be able to afford the G109S anyways....
