That would be really awesome.  I've love something like that for when I'm on someone else's computer and they have  a junk dac...

The C5D is coming, it has an output impedance of 0.62. I'm not sure if it's different in any other way than the C5

Damn, just when I thought I was out.... they keep pulling me back in!!!  ;)

 

Excuse #1: Wife really likes the AKG Q701, but it needs an amp.  The DAC in her laptop is crap.  Solution: C5D  :k701smile:

I'm selling my C5 as well. Asking €125 since it's only 5 days old, and I can still send it back for a refund. But It has to go back to Spain.

 

Anyone interested in the C5? Would probably be cheaper if you're from Europe.

Sorry for the spam, but here is my classified:

If I haven't sold it in a couple of days I need to return it to heapdhoniaks for a refund.

Why are you all selling this amp so quickly? If I didn't already have an RSA Tomahawk I would buy one in a heartbeat.

X3's amp is very powerful, lots of volume and bass and sounds very very good. Would I still benefit from a C5 with this player? I mean, could the C5 be a better amp than the X3?

You will benefit if you are a bass head.  The bass on the x3 to the c5 sounds superb.  If you try to get high bass levels with just the x3, there will be a lot of muddiness and warmpth.

It's simply too big for my train hopping adventures. 

 

The C5 is quite bulky when stacked on the DX50.

Well the C5 and iPhone 4S pair quite nicely with the Alpha Dog. Not bad. Not bad at all. The O2 just has a little more bass rumble next to the C5, and the previously mentioned larger soundstage and laid-back mids.

Nice rig. Is that an a/b switch in the middle? Where did you get it. I was gonna make one myself, because i can't find one.

Yup that's an A/B/C/D-er. It's the FiiO HS2, but they no longer make it. I got it for ~$20 USD from a vendor and they sold out. You might be able to find one on eBay.
