New balanced portable amp from RSA w/ DAC! - Page 5

post #61 of 258

Well, somehow this connector called Mini AB could be a little bit closer

The one on the right seemed to be the same as well

It should be made by this company called Kycon

Micro AB should be quite different

Aha i thought those connector's were obsolete. So it's compatible with regular mini B and the more elusive A plugs. That's good

So this cable for 4 bucks should work from an Android phone to The Intruder

Yes, that cable will work, using exactly that one with my S3/Note 2 - at about 6min50 mark:

note how in the innerfidelity video of the intruder, that the intruder is connected to the computer using a wireworld silver or platinum starlight usb cable

which is listed on the wireworld website with the options of usb to b or mini b plug

so my bet would be on the mini b

Cool, that should confirm the type of connector for sure.

 

Speaking of the computer, I wonder if The Intruder were Linux-friendly or not.

 

If so, a tiny little Linux box with portable battery plus this SSD should result in THE ultimate rig:

Does anyone know the output impedance on it? I want to know if I can use sensitive iems with this.

not really sure but they're are pictures of ciems on the rsa website so the gain should be low enough for iems

also the sr-71b has the same low gain and is said to be fine

only thing changed is that the highest gain is roughly 2x

Only thing that changed is gain? So it's only a sr-71b with a DAC? Or is actually improved to compete with the rxmk3 etc?

seems like it from all ive read so far

what do you mean improved to compete with the rxmk3? i thought its on par with it already

Good question, I wonder about this too.

 

Is this an idevice product also?

its not an idevice

in one of the videos, its connected to an iphone using a LOD

dacs that bypass the amp have a full size usb plug in, from which the digital signal is decoded

Does the dac on this support 24/192 via usb to galaxy s3 or note 2 and computers?
post #74 of 258

Love the RSA synergy with my HD600s. I think I'll get this if its DAC section supports at least 24/92 :)

post #75 of 258

The 71b makes the HD650 come to life.  Having to option to use USB into this new amp, using an external 1 tb hard drive, which is what I often do, makes for a great station with my laptop.
