Is the ZO 2 really just a "bass booster"? Or is it an amp? Never good to double amp. Might end up white noisy.

I've been told it is just a bass booster. I would like not to double amp, but I'm not sure there is any portable amp that can give me tight, vibrating bass, with out being a little dark. The E11 is what I have right now it is a bit dark. I think I may just get the C&C BH, and see if it satisfies my bass needs too. I've heard some good things about it.

I guess diamonds are a man's best friend

Shoot, those things cost the same as 2 huge diamonds!

Do you feel E11 bass sounds a little muddy,, bloated or darkens the mids? What C&C BH will give you is smooth bass boost that increases the low end detail and clarity, I wouldn't call it a big boost in quantity, roughly the same as E11 set on EQ1, though details more accurate to the headphone paired. What BH bass boost switch also does is slightly brighten the mids and highs at the same time so the sound doesn't become overly warm or veiled and clarity increases. Very clean sounding amp, very smooth.

Hope that helps.

H2O that's exactly what I'm looking for in an amp! I think that the E11 is too dark and a little bloated. Thanks for recommending this amp for me in the first place. I shall pick the BH up in the next couple weeks. Anybody have a sub $50 LOD for my iPod classic?

Zo2 is an amp but double amping yeilds pretty positive results with it.

Why you double amping? For the money, I really don't think its necessary.

No I'm sorry I havn't, I built a LOD for my nano's to use with my E11. My DIY had the locking pins left on so it couldn't fall out. If your handy with a soldering iron there are lots of cheap cables to modify. biggrin.gif

Rudi, your gear deserves better - dust off that digital camera and take a proper picture!

I used to use the L3. It's about the same as the L9, but the locking pins on the dock connector help it stay put a little better. That said, I've never had the L9 come loose unless I've wanted it to.

It comes loose when I fold it when I put bands around my iPod and my amp. also it covers up the line out on the E11 because it comes out the side of the dock, where as the L3

I haven't soldered anything since I soldered wile installing my speakers, stereo, and subwoofer in my car, I don't think I'm very handy with. I also do not own a solder, I had to borrow my girlfriend's dad's soldering iron. WOuld the L3 be a good choice?
