Rather impressed with this R3 dual dynamic by Brainwavs coming out my Studio.
The rather strange looking acoustic chamber gives them a unique soundstage experience.
Their aluminum housing also seems to reflect in their timbre. 
Not bad at all for $129 offering. The fit may not be everyone's cup of tea but if you can get it right you'll be rewarded.

Both AlgoRhythm Duet (preamp) and Rx Mk3-B+ (amp) are pretty much having the same size so the stack should look quite neat:

4.5 x 2.8 x 0.9 inches ; 7.2 ounces

http://www.amazon.com/Cypher-Labs-AlgoRhythm-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B00H9L2B28

2.9 x 4.5 x 0.9 inches ; 9.8 ounces

http://www.amazon.com/ALO-audio-ALO-2217-Mk3--Black/dp/B00DZVY53O

Of course we could also replace RWAK120-B with AlgoRhythm Solo -db plus another excellent source such as Sony NW-ZX1 etc. Or go completely single-ended if we prefer the sound of KM01-BRASS.

Heck, what if we just do a double whammy by stacking a pair of KM01-BRASS instead so balanced output could be created just like this?







Not an easy task to pull that off IMHO but still worth a try?

I wonder what would it costs to build a solid brass case by your friend versus getting that done for O2 with 3D printers. Then the case could be gold-plated afterwards instead of always wrapping the amp with a piece of cloth.

Something similar could be done for the housing/chasis of an iPhone or Sony NW-ZX1 etc. Instead of 24K gold like the ones from Gold & Co. London, we'll just go for solid brass if that were actually changing the sound.

Any info/page how to split the channel? Im curious since I have 2 same amps biggrin.gif

+1! I should be able to source two matching amps as well...

+1 does splitting require the source is a balance line/phone out?

Where it all started.

 

No expensive amps. No external DACs. No overpriced ICs. Just an iPod and a pair of on-ears (granted the first time, they were PortaPros...)

Those were the days, before addiction kicked in with a healthy wallet in hand. Before curiosity began playing chess with audiophile devils.
