Can anyone with personal experience with the LCD-2 and the International comment on the synergy with the amp and also driveability?

So, I've owned the 4.A and 4.ai as well as the ER4S and wanted to try something different. In retrospect, I almost pulled the trigger on the Noble 4, but I recall that the infamous dip with the...
These hurt my head almost right away. The good sound quality is not noticeable when my ears and head hurts. Having said that, the price is low and if you don't like them then just return them.
This will be a short review based on maybe on 12-15 hours of use. If you think that's not long enough you can skip it. I was a bit worried that this would be some cheap gimmicky toy amp because...
The short and simple of it is this is the best DAP for the price I have owned. I have used all the main stream players, (IPods, Zune, Creative Zen Player, etc) and I will never go back. Besides the...
ALO audio New amp+DAC : "The International" - Page 8post #106 of 1584/3/13 at 10:16pmpost #107 of 1584/4/13 at 4:08pmpost #108 of 1584/6/13 at 7:40pmpost #109 of 1584/7/13 at 2:29ampost #110 of 1584/7/13 at 4:42ampost #111 of 1584/8/13 at 6:18pm
It is interesting that I see the International paired with the AK100 so much.... as the
ALO International output impedance comes in at 21ohms - and the AK100 at 22ohms.
If the aim is not only to amp but to fix the impedance issue, Seems kinda pointless to me? (See PDF for data/stats).
*Still waiting for Continental/MX/National measurements.post #112 of 1584/8/13 at 7:14pm
ffffffk...i find this out the day i buy a used one here on HF to pair with my rwak....i assumed alo knew what they were doing....
thanks alot expat....i'm personally holding you responsible for killing my post purchase buzz...post #113 of 1584/8/13 at 7:39pmQuote:
I am guessing for low impedance iems the RWAK does not need amping and you can use the international for harder to drive headphones no ?post #114 of 1584/8/13 at 8:03pm
true enough, however my current iems are low impedance as is my only current f/s set, the 50ohm Mad Dogs...
generally speaking, does anyone know if impedance measurements vary between SE and balanced outputs...?...FWIR, gain settings have no impact on impedance, correct...?
high SE measurements are not that big an issue as i'm planning to use the balanced output primarily...just hope they rate lower balanced...
i've got an email into ALO, but i'm not holding out much hope; i've never received a reply in half dozen inquires i've made in the past....post #115 of 1584/9/13 at 6:03amQuote:
oops, my bad :)
Maybe try posting in their forum section of head-fi sponsors. Ask em about the other amps too. See what they say.post #116 of 1584/9/13 at 7:25ampost #117 of 1584/17/13 at 11:43ampost #118 of 1584/17/13 at 6:43pmpost #119 of 1584/18/13 at 11:48am
Regarding the USB Dac performance of this Unit, headphonia opinion is completely different than touchmyapps review.
I've three questions:
1. Will it work ( the dac section ) with classic Ipod 160gb (2010)?
2. Will I sacrifice much if I use it for IEM with 20 ohm impedance?
3. How does the sound quality compare to say SONY PHA-1, Fostex HP-P1, VAMP VerZa, Go Dap X
Ok, one more question: what would be the best IEMs for this device?
