Xing Yuan brand
AC Adapter

Class 2 Power Supply

Model No YP-088

Output 16VAC 500mA

 

NOTE THAT IS NOT 16VDC IT IS AC

I'm not happy with my Creek OBH-21 SE (noise). Think the Magni will play nice with my 4s > EACE > HD600?

connect the amp to one of the analog audio outputs with an 1/8in. to RCA cable.

Will this amp improve the sound of my akg k550?

My source is a Ipod Classic using a Fiio LOD.

Damn... that's one sexy amp.

The volume knob seems a bit long.
post #191 of 2190

The volume knob does look too long, but it's probably something they had to source pre-made in order to keep costs down.

 

Please hurry up and listen to it, Mike!

Damn that is quite small.

I bet they put weights in the amp to make it feel good like that.

Keep in mind that the enclosure is stainless steel, which would weigh quite a bit more than aluminum.
