Review: JDS Labs O2 (Black edition) + O2/ODAC discussion - Page 17

I should be getting the C5 to review, I heard about the C5 a few weeks ago from John, but was sworn to secrecy. It looks really good so far, and may replace my faithful C421 as my portable amp. It will be interesting to compare the C5 vs C421 with maybe a little comparison to O2 if worthy, as O2 is more desktop, C5 looks really portable and small. Volume control looks good though. Can't wait for it to come out, and wait for my review on it

John did reply to my email query but I wont post what he said....it looks like this will be a really nice amp...always room for another toy!!

 

I just got a new Internet Ready AVR....and am listening to Pandora via its headphone jack and the LCD2's really nice...and it plays USB 1.5 TB drive ...flacs!!

 

Technology never sleeps..

It's probably top-secret information/not to be leaked to the general public until it gets posted on JDS Lab's website.

Hey wolfetan44,

 

I have given it some love so far with some Ultrasones (PRO750, HFI-2200), Denon D5000s and briefly with Grados RS-2.  Now that I set her up in her final destination, some more head time indeed with others.

 

Cheers!!!

Thanks guys!  beerchug.gif

 

 

Now Alex, that's what I'm talking about...Pics always speak for themselves and give members different outlooks, possibilities and ideas for future or present audio chains.  Awesome pics and gear...Outstanding.....Cheers!!

 

 

Raleigh, NC....Lived there a couple years in the mid '90s...Off Millbrook and close to Six Forks, IIRC...Almost purchased a home out in Knightdale...Never got used to the ice..lol...but a beautiful and great place to live...

If pictures are the name of the game now, these are not from JDSLabs, but seems appropriate.

 

Some combination of the way the lighting is set up in the room normally (most of it behind computer monitors), my lack of camera skills, cell phone camera, and black color make the quality lower than it could be, so my apologies...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amp is on, just with the LED taped up so the light doesn't get out.  I use relatively thick rubber stick-on feet meant for desktop computer cases, which does a reasonable job for stopping sliding and also elevating the controls so they are more convenient to reach.

Congrats RandomKid,

 

for a very nice review and pics. 

 

How is Cristiano Ronaldo  doing in Real Madrid?

 

Now offtopic:

Can  JDS Labs install a 1/4" headphone jack (instead of the 1/8" jack)?

 

 

I am going to order the O2 and ODAC as two separates within a few days.

I want to use them with my brand new Toshiba Satellite laptop and the DT 880 (250 Ohm, 2005 edition).

Has anyone tried the DT 880 with the O2 (and ODAC)?
