ALO audio New amp+DAC : "The International" - Page 8

post #106 of 173

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

post #107 of 173

ok, I pulled the trigger one The International :D

post #108 of 173

how does this compare to the RSA SR-71B?

I'll be looking forward to your impressions with the LCD-2.

Yes they are suppose to be a very good match

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.

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...eek.gif mad.gif wink.gif

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 173

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... confused.gif

 

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.... rolleyes.gif

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.

Good find EiJ. Hard to find stats on ALO in general. Any idea about the impedance of the other ALO amps?

I've just concluded an email conversation with Josh who claims he doesn't have the output measurement available...uh-huh

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?

post #120 of 173

Just curious how this one stacks up against the V-MODA VERZA.  Any insights would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
