Final update on this amp now it has had about 100 hours playing time.
Output 1 - ON
LF - ON
SF - ON
EDIT: High Gain (It is just better and little movement with the pot doesn`t bother me)
Considering I couldn`t listen to the amp with even the LF on it has come a long way in terms of satisfaction. The SF with my Momentums really gives a sense of space now, almost a surround sound feeling but a highly enjoyable experience.
Used with my Westone 4`s, very nice indeed but can`t match the sound stage of the Momentums with SF on.
If this thing breaks I will re-order from C&C, impressed.
I will be changing to hifi amplification once I move house but there will always be a home for this little thing.
So, burn in is good with the C&C. I should know this by now lol! I should probably keep observations to a minimum then, but this was interesting after 30 minutes with ELE DAC + C&C + WS99:
Out1,GC OFF, LF ON, SF OFF
Out1, GC ON, LF ON, SF ON
Interesting that the GC (gain) seems to have an impact on the SF ON sound. I found that GC OFF + SF ON is seems a bit brighter than GC ON + SF ON (volume matched). I wasn't expecting that.
Obviously lots to learn with this puppy - time to start experimenting and reading! I can tell you this though - it sounds good with the WS99's!
