It's more airy rather than punchy and you know i love airy bass when i can hear particular drums and percussions being hit rather than getting solid punch. so like i say to each his own.

what i cannot tell is about c5, but i can imagine different synergy perhaps ... Still i tried many apples among them players in iPhones, iPads and also iPods and none cut it for me. iTouch i meant is 4 generation however, not 5.

It all depends from what gear you come and what music you prefer, i know some people just cannot stand refined sound and prefer overpowered bass, but i come from live sound and my taste is different.

I prefer airy as well especially when you can hear the resonance and the warmth of a drum hit as opposed, to just speed which is thin sounding.  At the same time I do like analytical, and punch , but not at the expense of seperation around the instruments.  If the finer detailed elements of the music are being veiled over by punch and preceived clarity then for get it.

Helmet, i do not know much about C5 but its hard to believe C5 beats O2 (some reviewers said O2 is close to reference sounding)... mind this every amp has good and bad synergies, you may have the situation when C5 pairs so well with touch pod but not with C3, and then you may have C3 with BH or XO2 winning all over ipod and C5... who knows? hearing is believing but i did not hear C5.

 

mind this i plan Tralucent T1 which many say rivals best of the best and price is not too high. however i wish i could convince myself waste some money on ALO. it is just i cannot when calculate how much my portable rig would cost.

The person I was talking about in that post was Mannes. I agree with you however, synergy is everything.

Just ordered one. I got a $50 coupon from Ebay for use on electronics (Ebay was giving them out for people that sold over $200 in electronics during part of March). Figured this amp was too good an opportunity to pass up for $50 shipped. biggrin.gif

LOL

I definitely don't need help spending too much money on equipment. I don't know what I'll do with an E17, O2 (which I already own), and a C&C BH. But I am trying to avoid being a portable amp collector biggrin.gif
