are there any known issues with the O2 amp using 16-32 ohms phones running at low volumes? no imbalance or noise?

Imbalance depends a lot on the sensitivity of the IEM. The higher, the more likely it will encounter such problem. However, lowering the gain of the amp usually helps to avoid such problem. Most universal IEM shouldn't have such problem on O2 with low gain. However, If you use a particularly sensitive custom IEM, you will want to ask the manufacturer / builder to lower the low gain on O2 to zero.

 

Noise is exceptionally low in O2, pretty much inaudible.

ok thanks, pretty much figured out which amp to get now.

You're on your own on this as I have no plan to review the Cayin C5.

If you like what you have heard than everything is cool. But in general I'll avoid RSA as much as possible.
