New Portable Amp: JDS Labs C5!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Just noticed JDS Labs has posted a pic on Facebook regarding their latest portable amp C5!

 

Not much info is available except that "it's a tremendous upgrade over c421. Channel balance is now audibly perfect at all volumes. It measures and sounds great as well".

 

Preorders will be available as soon as production reaches 80% (less than 2 weeks), according to JDS Labs :)

Have a pair of Hifiman re-262's on the way

I'm being told now,that the i-phne will not have enough juice to power these things properly.

New to IEM's

New to Portable amps...so,

 

Can you guys suggest a decent portable amp,small,yet powerful for these IEM's?

I was looking at the Fiio E-11

 

THis new model from JDS,looks great.

 

Any suggestions will be appreciated

 

Tnx

Mike

No price listing, though. I wonder if it will end up being significantly more than the C421?

Probably not significantly more since JDS Labs' pricing has always been budget conscious. I guess it will be similar to the C421!

I hope so. I've been itching to order an O2 since I just got the ODAC, but the better portability seems worth waiting to see how the C5 prices out.

Nice to see how it competes with other similar portable amps. More choices and competitiontongue.gif
