ELE+E11 sounds bright and good sound stage to me. (i know it's a combo)

i think they are about the same sound. they both used PCM2704.

but i prefer the ELE more since they are cheaper.

What you'll want is something that is extremely transparent and revealing, and O2 will fit the bill if you are willing to carry it around. If C5 is as good as its measurement is indicated, then perhaps it will fit as well. I have a prototype amp that almost fit the description as well, thought it is not yet ready for prime time so I won't bother you with it for now.

It is called 'Project Woodwind', not sure if that's its final name or not. You won't find any detail over the web about it for now, but I think it is in the final phase of R&D if not already into early production. Think of an ultraportable amp that has the O2 level of SQ. I will talk more about it in the preview I am writing at the moment.

Sounds promising... Is it DIY? If not, what company?

Hi ClieOS,

How would you rank the Audinst HP-AMP among this list?

Not DIY. I only have the amp board (PCB) but not the full amp to play with, but the PCB is not something you can solder with hand. The guy works in a company called Critical Point Engineering, but I don't know much about the company nor about the scale of this project.

Sorry, never listen to any Audinst before.
