Definitely noticed a huge improvement when I ran my CIEMs out of the balanced output instead of the SE one. Bass, soundstage, and clarity in the mids were all much better so IMHO if you have this amp, run it out of the balanced output!
Portable set-up eye candy. I'm still burning in the cables but it gave me a great first impression. This setup consist of Fiio X5 -> Norse Draug Interconnect -> Ray Samuel Intruder balanced amp -> norse draug alo to balanced adapter -> draug balanced Hd800 Cable -. HD800.
by far this is the best portable (actually more transportable) setup I have heard it actually edges close sonically to my Audio GD Dac19 (PCM1704UK) tandem with a bottlehead crack + speedball.
balance out of intruder is truly amazing. no portable amp I've tried came close. and i've tried a lot
Rivals many home systems, IMO and on the go. Great stuff these past couple of years.
