Cool please do, and let me know, I should have mine tomorrow.  I'm waiting to get my Colorfly C3 back, which will probably be about 3 weeks (hopefully at the latest).  Mine is currently amping my iPod Video 5.5G.

 

What DAC is that by the way?

 

Are you sourcing from your computer?

 

Nice to know you're in Seattle.

Ah cool you are too. I'm actually in Kent but nobody besides people who live in Washington know where that is lol.

This is the DAC (there are tons on eBay, I forget which seller I bought it from exactly) http://www.ebay.com/itm/ELE-EL-D01-MINI-HIFI-USB-PCM2704-DAC-BOARD-CARD-ELNA-Capacitor-hercolor-balck-/200900010810?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ec692e33a

Yes in the office I source from my computer. Sometimes I have the BH with an iPod Nano and a silver plated LOD (which also sounds awesome) however I have to charge the nano every other day or so, which gets annoying lol.

Just got mine today in the mail.

Who posted that the C&C BH was good with the Samsung Note 2?

They were right! Works great. Can't wait to try it out some more biggrin.gif

Did you get the LOD on ebay too?  I have some silver 22g wire coming in a few days.  I'll be making my mini to mini connector soon for the C3.  Let me know how it works with the Porta Pro.

How would the C&C BH do with a pair or ortho's like the HE-500 or Audeze LCD 2's. I'm getting a pair and while I'm curious as to how the BH would power them.

Yup I got it on ebay for I think $20. This one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/281053419415?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

Ok so I've been listening to a bunch of stuff tonight on the BH with the silver plated LOD and the iPod Nano.

I have lots of IEM's, but not many headphones. So I was listening to the Porta Pro's, and they definitely sound better with the BH. More "lively". When I took out the BH they sound kind of flat in comparison lol. The BH with the silver plated LOD might add a fuzz too much treble, some songs (like She Wolf) have a few moments where it got a little harsh. With a copper LOD though it would probably be fine (something for me to buy next). ok I just bought a copper LOD on ebay lol. This one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/IPOD-LINE-OUT-DOCK-LOD-FOR-HEADPHONE-AMP-Pure-Copper-/250718033554?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item3a5ff59692

Anyways, now I'm listening to the BH with my S500's. Man these things sound awesome. Much better than anything I have in terms of headphones

Funny, everything I have read about the Porta Pro's is that they sound a bit veiled in the high end.  I am very sensitive to high end, so maybe this will be the the ticket for me.  I love My HD25-1 II  they sound great but the highs can be a bit much.  They still need some break in.  My DT 770's will be going on sale since I barely listen to them anymore, as well as my M50's (both with detachable cable mod).

I would power the amp prior to plugging in the headphones, iem's, and you shouldn't have a problem.

That, or just don't put the headphones or IEMs on until after you turn the amp on.
