Nice tip, xnor.

Nice, post impressions when you can :)

Half decent pics.

So, presumably that's an older ipod and you'll be getting the benefit of decently lowered output impedance.

Why would you call it half decent?

Pardon my ignorance,are you using Beyer "Cushions" with your Ultrasones HeatFan?

Thanks!  I see now why all the discussions on neutral, transparent, clarity etc.  My initial impression is this little amp will let the headphones "be" the headphones (and I'm a tube freak...lol).  Very pleased with the purchase and still have to try out other phones and sources but definitely a winner.  Going to spend a good amount of time with it today (day off) and will come back later tonight with other thoughts...

 

Thanks to all that share their experiences with this little amp.

Lol...Well, I have a half decent camera and less than half decent picture taking skills...So, I'll take that as a compliment...Cheers!!! Thanks!

 

Yes, that is a 5.5G iPod video (rockboxed).

Oops! It's a UK colloquialism for 'quite good'. Forgot the international flavour of this forum.

It would be used when the something is much better than normal though not pro/amazing. So really I was giving my appreciations of the good pics.
