I've answered your PM regarding this. Overall the pairing is a great match also amongst some of the best bass impact I have heard. (using the amps LF switch)

 

     


 

 


Maybe this review can help you. I believe there's a comparison to C&C BH (BH2)

Now, how the h*ll do I walk away from that! 

I think I'm just going to purchase the C5, and if I don't like the synergy, I can just sell it.

I'm also considering C5 for my incoming BA4r. Headphoniaks shipping cost to Poland is 10 euros. So the total cost of c5 will be 150 euros.

Nope, about €154, I know because I just ordered it. Unless you're not paying with paypal, because obviously you should add costs, to a product when the customers have no credit card. I'm not even mad though, it's still so much cheaper than to order it from the us.

Yeap I was referring to the standard price plus shipping costs to be paid when paying via credit card. It's definitely cheaper than from buying directly from JDS Labs and you are avoiding the risk of levy of the customs duties.

There's a video here with C5, 02, BH one member did. You may find it interesting.

I have both the C5 and the BH amps, and I have to agree with the comments in the above video. The C5 is just that bit more neutral than the BH, and a plus for me, a better physical match size wise for my iPod. Though the BH is still a great amp for the money, probably the best in its price bracket.

Yes, I've seen that one. Very interesting indeed. Honestly, if it was a bit easier to get hold of the C&C bh amp, I would've gotten that one. But getting gear across the dutch border is a drag, and very expensive. They pretty much take 50% of the total price of the product (including shipping costs) and add it to the price. 

 

Plus, I really like that it gives the cleaner sound, it's definitely something I feel that's lacking on the HO of the DX50.

So you are liking this with the DX50, have you tried the C5 by change with this as well? I don't want an amp that is going to color it much if at all.

I haven't received it yet! I just made conclusions of its sound based on all those reviews.

 

But I will let you know how it sounds when it arrives. It should arrive around thursday-friday if I'm lucky.

Just started using the C&C BH straight out of my mb (Maximus VI Hero)  and woaaaah. This is great all over again

Thanks, I really want to sell my 2 amps and by 1 better one, but wondering if I can save some money buying this one. I'm looking at the ibasso D42 and the Jdslabs C5 as well.

I haven't received the C5 yet. But I have the O2, and there is a relatively big improvement over the HO of the DX50. The biggest improvement is probably in dynamics and clarity. This gives me hope for the C5!

Well the O2 will definitely provide you with that. But it's not very portable. I'll let you know if the C5 has similar results with the DX50.
