What is the point of having different impedances and different gain settings at the same time?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

it's worked out great for me so far, since I have (for example) Grado Rs1. It is low impedance, but needs a good deal of power to sound it's best. They are there for you to set whatever setting best suits your headphone/iem.

...but both settings do the exact same thing in practice (manipulation of output voltage), just with different methodologies. I just don't see the purpose of having both at the same time, and I was wondering if you knew something that the first method does that the second method does not.

^ I copied and pasted this from the CEntrance Hifi-M8 product page:  

 

 

Analog Specs

 
 

Freq. Response

20 Hz...50 kHz (flat EQ circuit)

 

S/N Ratio

113 dB (A-weighted)

 

THD+N

0.002 % (mid gain position)

 

Crosstalk

-103 dB (at 1kHz)

 

Output Impedance

1, 2, 11 Ohm, selectable

 

Output Power

1.4 W (max), 1 W (typical)

 

Headphones

16...600 Ohm

 

Output voltage

-2 dBV (nominal, max gain) use with less-sensitive over-the head headphones

   

-10 dBV (nominal, mid gain) use for connecting to line-level consumer audio equipment

   

-22 dBV (nominal, min gain) use with ultra-sensitive IEM headphones

 

 

Sorry, I'm not a very technical guy when it comes to these things. Hope this helps!

The amp wallet is very practical for carrying the gear also for operating ipod. It also protects gears. I hate those straps.

I would feel annoyed everytime that I have to take the ipod out to change track,because moving the trackpad through that plastic screen is a pain.

haha like that. Honestly diy is fun and now I know how those guys rip off head-fi'ers by selling a LOD for 200 bucks.

NO no no you have to try it. For the ipod video it's like a charm. For the ipod classic my 1st amp wallet had trouble but my 2nd one has no trouble due to more sensitive material used for the transparent cover. But I don't care for the classic's b/c I now can't stand its sound after modding these 5.5g's.

I have the other amp wallet (for the stack) with the same clear cover.  I have no issues using my iPod touch though it...
