Just to get everyone up to speed on the Sicphones amp in the picture, here are the two parts of Stevens Stones Audiophile Review about the amp:
I concur with Steve's assessment that the amp is a strong performer for $279 but it truly prefers higher impedance headphones. It also is not a suitable CIEM amp as there is very noticeable background hiss. All of my IEM's or CIEM's are not compatible if a dead quiet background is your benchmark. However, my HD650's are a nice pairing. On the road my HD25-1 ii's are also a reasonable pairing. At 70 ohms you still get background noise though not as strongly as my 17 ohm ACS Custom T1 CIEM's. The amp has strong bass and a nice tone throughout plus it is portable enough to put in a backpack for longer travel times. The Audioquest Dragonfly is a good companion piece when used as a DAC only. I am using it with JRiver18 on a Dell PC, files saved on a Toshiba USB 2.0 external drive.
Hey, it's not my Decware, but it is surprisingly fun.
