Nice review/impressions DannyBai :).

post #3587 of 5603

I posted in Vamp Verza thread but thought would try here also.   

 

Has anyone tried pairing 1plus2 with vamp verza/ipod classic??

 

Thanks

I tried my on my friend's verza/iPhone 5 combo and while it drives the 1plus2 reasonably well, it is definitely far from giving you anywhere close to the resolution and dynamic range the 1plus2 is capable of achieving.  Not sure if running it with IPC would be any different.

Thanks kkcc.

I think it is my best AMP. I've written a few preliminary impressions here.

 

While I'm at it I'd like to make a warning about the combination of ALO's Rx-MK3-B and sensitive IEMs such as the TG334, AKG K3003, and possibly the 1plus2 (which I don't have). I commented Steve Gutteberg's Review of the TG334 about this here. For those of you who are not CNET members here is what I wrote in my comment:

 

------------------

I find the "ALO Rx-MK3B + FitEar ToGo 334" to be a very poor combination for the simple reason that the ALO Rx-MK3B hisses like a madman with the FitEar ToGo 334 (Yes, also with the gain switch set to low!). I strongly advice against this setup and so does ALO. I'm very surprised and disappointed that Steve completely ignores this fact in his review which to a large part made me invest in the ALO Rx-MK3B. I'm not very sensitive to hiss, but the “ALO Rx-MK3B + FitEar ToGo 334” combination is in my honest opinion nothing but a joke. Here is what ALO has to say about it…

 

"Unfortunately there is not much to be done with the RX MK3-b and FitEar combo. The 334's are very sensitive and the Rx MK3-b is very powerful and not the best suited for sensitive IEMs. The Rx MK3-b has a total of nine Op Amps operating inside of it. This is what gives the amp it's great sonic characteristics but the by-product of this is hiss with your FitEars. - Josh"

You will not be disappointed!

Could you please share which one that is as good as the uber?  Keen to learn.

 

Cheers

Hmmm....9 op amps!....no wonder it hisses.....and just think of all the extra circuitry (=noise) they must require.

The product details

(Paddoso) was developed in order to use the earphone of low impedance type of BA FitEar etc. Epsilon S and Bialbero Epsilon PAD-SO. 

There was a problem for sensitive, can not be increased almost the volume of the amplifier side, such as not go or will have to good position earphone of low impedance type conventional. There was also a problem that is easy to pick up and power supply noise to stagnation in the ground due to impedance. It not only easy to raise the volume, PAD-SO has been able to to reduce more noise by to adapt the impedance. 
I am using variable resistor (volume) most of the volume control of the amplifier. There is a level where the left and right do not match depending on where you turn this variable resistor. such as the early part of the case is particularly Turn, it is said that gang error. To avoid turning too much volume and the like connecting earphone sensitive, be used in place easily out of the gang error is increased, it became a problem. The weight loss only that power without prejudice to the basic quality of the audio signal, PAD-SO is now able to turn more volume. The hand further filtered metal skin film resistor of ultra-high precision, we are carefully assembled by the three-dimensional structure. This structure also have an impact on the sound. Case use the extruded aluminum very sturdy. It does not break By thoughtless. 
You have been sealed in plastic resin system in order to reduce even a little phenomenon called electronic components and unique "squeal". Rampage of the signal at high frequency the extra meter has been reduced by this. The construction of this system was conducted WAGNUS.Sputnik cable and FitEar custom ear monitor 334, in WAGNUS.Bialbero Epsilon S. Fit impedance is 7 ~ 10Ω but, FitEar custom ear monitor 334, recommended earphone of this unit will be Bialbero series amplifier change in frequency characteristic may have seen earphone, some headphones. I am used to use other amplifiers, even in earphone / headphone therefore other mechanical passive course, please be careful characteristic may change. It does not set such direction, especially as a developer, but teamed with a specific orientation when you start to assemble the structure. (The direction in which the Swarovski comes below) has teamed up from top to bottom to see the logo on the front plate of the surface. Grow to their liking in any sound source 50 for the first time because there is a change of the sound by aging. ■ Specifications 7 ~ 10Ω impedance fit 12 ~ 15dB attenuation (depending on the characteristics of the earphone) (there is no direction in particular) 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input and output

Gavin, what exactly this little box does? i am curious why would you need this?

They are indeed terrible with TG334, which in my opinion one of the worst combo. The TG334 is dark and hiss alot, the RX3 is also dark and hiss a lot.. Combine the 2.. makes a very dark combo that double the hiss.. The hiss is really loud..

 

I contacted them for a solution and one of the first thing I did was to get a inline vol controller to reduce the hiss, Here is what I wrote back then..

Can be bought at amazon for $17.25 and will not degrade the sound.

 

Here is what I did:

 

1) Plug the shure controller at full volume in rx 3

2) Lower shure in line volume controller knob until hissing sound completely gone

 

3) Turn up Rx 3 volume slowly until comfortable level... you are all set now.. hissing sound completely gone.

4) I notice I have a lot of play on the rx volume now and my Sony IEM uses the same amount of volume as my HD650 on the RX 3.

 

5) No need to send back to Ken as he is not able to reduce the hiss as mention in earlier thread. use this gem and gain at least 5% of happiness.wink.gif

 

 

As for the TG334, I bought the impedance adaptor to counter the hiss..but it messed up the sound quality too much.. Here is what I wrote

In an exaggerated way, it sound like placing a cup to your ear, the bass was depress down and treble (already very little) sound dull. If you want to make your $1400 IEM sound like $100, this may be the best solution.

 

Throw into the garbage can within 3 mins... crab.

 

Sorry for ranting..

It is a an expensive impedance adaptor with a 10-15db attentuator as well...........normal_smile%20.gif

 

Great with the ALO Rx Mk3...but not so good with the MASS-Kobo, leading me to the opinion that it actually works better with more powerful, and probably desktop ones.........................

Hmm I never knew the ALO was considered dark? I thought it was more along the lines of being a brighter sounding amp from what I read..... Makes me wonder if it has higher output impedance which may account for this?
