I think Rudi's gears deserve a dedicated thread at the minimum. :)
Ok here is a latest DMod you guys are probably sick of just looking at the samo samo thing over and over. But inside they are not the same. After having exhausted all the caps, I finally decided to mod one completely free of caps with headphone jack disabled from the board. As a result, I lost hrs of sleep last night as I was surprised by what I was hearing. This is the most neutral, transparent and cleanest DMod I have heard so far. At first I was questioning myself if this is due to placebo, but no this is for real after hrs of auditioning everything thrown at it. I really believe this is the cleanest audio path I have ever achieved for the DMod. So neutral/transparent/clean, everything flows effortlessly without resistance. I normally don't use the hi gain setting on my amp as it loses some details/clarity, but with this transparent sounding it's equally enjoyable to use the hi gain configuration without feeling anything compromised.
I am so close to making a dumb statement ..... but I bet reserve it for now :)
Worth mentioning is this amazing little amp. It has no dc blocking caps but it can deal with the 1.5 volts of dc and completely cancel it at the output to the phones. As far as clean audio path, I am convinced the less the better. Simplicity is the beauty in design of almost everything.
