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)?

 

Used the O2 to power my DT880 600 Ohms for a few months.  This seems to be a bit of an uncommon combination, but the O2 did a great job.  The DT880's strengths really shone through with the O2 -- great control, detail, and soundstage.  But the O2 also shows the DT880s slightly recessed midrange, which had me try a Bottlehead Crack -- which I will probably stick with.  If you're interested in it...it's JDS stuffed with a 1/4" output and RCA ins let me know, I won't troll it anymore here.

Does anyone know of a builder (either a member here on head-fi or commercial company) other than JDS Lab that will build a O2+ODac Amp to my specifications?

Specifically I want RCA inputs and AC input to be behind, a 1/4" headphone jack to be in front, a higher quality volume control, and a souped up PSU.

Audio Poutine in Markham, Ontario, Canada does custom desktop O2's though I'm not sure if he does exactly all of those particular customizations. You can reach him through the Audio Poutine facebook page.

 

In terms of head-fi builders, you could ask MisterX if he's up for it. He does really good work.

Not a fan of football, so I wouldn't know anything about Ronaldo.

Also I think JDS only offer it with 1/8 jack

Mayflower electronics... I have two different O2+ODAC combos, both built specifically to my needs. However, do not expect that he can do EVERYTHING, like optional positioning of inputs/outputs or so since this is limited by the original design as well.

I want a 1/4" headphone jack  for my DT 880 cans, badly.

Besides the 1/4" headphone jack is much more sturdier than the other one.

I'll ask the JDS Labs about it.

(I'd rather go with well known manufacturers because there's so much dishonesty on the Internet.)

I use these:

JDS Labs is a good place to get an O2 and ODAC from.....great customer service.

Look forward to the review! From what I can tell, the C5 has some nice features, but it less powerful and more expensive than the O2. Not that I have needed so much power . . . yet!

Just got the O2 two days ago.  Have it paired with VModa M80s.  Sourcing from iPhone with LOD Cable Jive.  

This is easily the best sound I have obtained since I started with this sound path last year. 

 

As soon as I can figure out how to post a profile I will post more details.

How is this not sucking?  I have an HRT MSii+ and everyone's been telling me it's a major source of my problems with the O2.  How are you avoiding getting a totally anemic sound and clipping on high gain?  Even the E9 blows away the O2 with my similar setup.
