Is it a clear upgrade over E11 at detail and stage who owns both E11 and C&C?

Yes, it is a clear upgrade over E11. I have own/owned both. 100% guaranteed.

Comparing it to my other similarly priced portable amps, I would definitely recommend the BH over the E11 and the Ibasso T5.

Oh, the E11 is sooo muddy!!! Never realized that after listening to the C&C BH.

Waynenumm, you know it MIGHT be a GOOD IDEA to just go ahead and get this thing, then you won't have to simply live vicariously when reading this section. It will make your listening experience immensely more gratifying, so I am told. The answer is clear this is the answer to all your doubts,  just ask WJE he's had one before.

Soon as I sell some cans this'll be in my collection as well. I have waited a year already, and now it is getting unbearable, you know that same feeling you have right now.  Boy I bet those JVCs will sound gorgeous on this

Mine is usually charged in around 2.5 hours. The red light should go out.

Here's some information about charging.
Quote:
Charge:
Random power into the power outlet and the other end miniUSB plug into the amp 5V power jack, and can be automatically charged. Charging, P / C-color indicator light turns red, fast full when the lights dimmed or extinguished, full automatically stop charging. Air power, or been shelved indefinitely, need to charge more than 10 hours to full charge about 4-8 hours in normal use. Amp internal regulator, charge control circuit will not overcharge, over-discharge, and to ensure that the battery life. Amp can be a number of days to plug power. Batteries are nearly exhausted, P / C light to dark, to extinguish prompted the charge to try to charge ahead, to avoid battery exhaustion forget to recharge.
If the amp is not being used for a long period, should be fully charged kept in a cool, dry place, and every 3-6 months once again full of empty electrical storage may damage the battery.


If the red light has not gone out after 12 hours I would be disconnecting your unit. Be sure to use the provided charger as well.

Yes, it will charge faster using the wall charger rather than USB port from computer. My wall charger is 5V 500mA.

9V charger does not sound correct.

Was your unit completely flat when it arrived? Mine had some charge already, If it was completely flat it can take 10 hours from the description here.

Are you sure it says 9V on the provided wall charger? Because unless others have the same mine is 5V, I'm not sure 9V is is correct.

Yes, just let it fully charge using the wall charger, wait for red light to go out. smile.gif

My charger looks like this.



Same?

It was not flat, I've used til it ran out of power.

I really don't know sorry, I know USB is slower. I would just charge from wall adapter if conveniently available.

More details. You hear sounds you can't with the LOD. Cymbals and percussion instruments sound much more real. Can you guys check this please?

I think all my Gheto will be buying this amp after some demo.

I just checked this and the included interconnect is actually pretty damn good.

Included cable : more airy, better detailing, good clarity, but packed up much earlier at loud volume.

This cable: Less airy, more concentrated sound, punchier bass, slightly less detail control, goes louder before distortion. biggrin.gif

I don't know if the stock cable provided is copper/silver? Where did you read that?

However, it certainly just gave my recently purchased cable a sure run.

It doesn't sound like an ordinary copper cable that's for sure. I actually tried it when mine arrived and thought it was pretty good, there was something about it, but considering the thickness I discarded it and purchased another. I shall continue using this until my next silver plated cable arrives.

Yep, it sure is a very capable little amp! wink.gif

Thanks for the info!

Chris wanted $60 for this cable. lol. Thats how profitable this business is.

 

After the 200 hours and from my experience with silver cables, bass will get stronger and it will be more revealing. The difference on bass you can notice just after 2-3 hours.

I think Chris's cable is of a different standard and known source. Doesn't make that one ant worse.bigsmile_face.gif

With this cable you can clearly notice the difference from the "Soundstage Field" switch, which was barely noticeable before. It really expands the sound to the other level, widening up instrument separation. I guess this feature is enabled by default on other high-end amps.


Dude, I just tried that with the stock cable and you're right! It sounds awesome with the switch on. Not like the other cables. How strange!

Full of info!

Anyway, I'm on my iPod laying down so, enjoy. Sounds so chill right now with the sound field switch and my ambient dubstep. smily_headphones1.gif
