BIG design flaw on their part! I don't use IEMs at home - but even w/ my Audeze, Mr.Speakers, or others I gotta be careful!
I wrote about that into my review of the unit - they said something about wanting to include some aspects of their 20K DaVinci DAC (which is amazing, though 20K - I'm a bit OVER the high end in that way - thank God) but I think they should do an update for that.
Using the MS RIGHT NOW!
I actually prefer its synergy with the NuForce HAP-100 over my Mytek 192-DSD DAC!!
I always take it when I travel, as it can easily drive everything from my Audeze LCD2 w/ Fazor (even drove my OG LCD-3,
as indicated in my original review) to my Alphas and its also quiet enough to drive my JH Audio JH-13 Freqphase!!
Wow, that's quite high praise for the microStreamer, especially given all the hype around the Geek products these days. I still have yet to hear a Geek Out though.
Well, HRT was sort of at the Headphonium: At my booth at THE Show Newport, I had Out Of Your Head driving three mircoStreamers paired with some Schiit amps, electrostats, etc. The microStreamers worked great.
Another question, has anyone tried driving a pair of HD600's directly out of the microStreamer? Does it have enough power to get decent listening levels? A customer was asking me about it the other day, but I don't have a pair of HD600's to try.
I forgot about that.
How's the Vostok (SP?) coming?
What a serious sesh we had at CES!!!!
SURE - I was honored to write the first review of the microStreamer for Positive Feedback! - as I know Kevin really well.
Hell, I went to work for Elite Distro (their distributor) years ago because I loved their OG music streamer so much!
I wrote about it for The Daily Swarm - letting people know they can have FAR better than a Y-cable leading to their computer!
As the Swarm is a music site - but my Sonic Satori column also lives there.
IMO: it's still the king of these small USB DAC/amps!
thats the OG DF
just got the ver1.2 - lets see how it does!!
