Maybe when you get a chance you could update your sub-$200 amp shootout and include C5D. I know it is well above 200 bucks but it would be a worthy comparison. Thanks tongue_smile.gif

No disrespect to Mike, but I don't always agree with him when it comes to portable amps. Of course, I haven't listened to C5D myself so I really won't know.
See my recent comparison. The c5 is identical to the c5d even with a good source in the c5. So even though the specs are marginally different (well beyond audible specs), they sound identical in real life. Unless your earphones are extremely sensitive to the <2 ohm difference in output impedance, then they should sound identical.

Can anyone compare the C5D to the Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII?

Can't get it to work with my galaxy S3 frown.gif

Stock, running jelly bean 4.3....

If I have neutron open and press play once the C5D is connected it just fast forwards all the songs...

Works with my nexus 7 rooted with custom ROM just not with stock galaxy S3. Just speeds everything up, films, music, YouTube...

Using it as just an amp ATM with iPod classic. The bass boost pairs perfectly with my GMP 8.35 D with velour pads.

Note2 with official 4.3 update (UK unlocked) works perfectly.
S3 should be the same right?

Yeah it should but it doesn't frown.gif

I know it's not the C5Ds fault as it works with my nexus 7.

Also with the USB recorder pro app it works but that only plays FLAC and I only have mp3 on my phone.

Mine is UK unlocked, got lent/given it by Graham Long (vice president of Samsung UK, got to know him from a hotel I worked at)

USB Audio Player PRO (from the same developer) is able to play mp3.

Thanks, it works but crashes....

I'll get it working one day. To be honest I dont use my phone much for listening, just wanted to test it for review purposes.

What version are you at? UAPP does that if your not on the latest version....update it if your on a lower version....hope that helps.

I'll have to test various ways and whatnot. But I love neutron, In theory it should work frown.gif

I blame Samsung and their 4.3 update

I have a C5 unit on loan from a friend. I find it rather capable amp. Offers a good taste of neutrality and refinement, I've only really tested it with my Yamaha MT220 studio monitors so far, but I'm rather pleased with outcome.

I have tested the C5D with the stock Note 3 running 4.3 and it runs fine with Neutron and Poweramp.
post #1845 of 2701
The C5D works fine with the HTC Droid DNA. It took a little trial and error with software since it was running on 4.4.2 via CyanogenMod, but once it was working the owner of the phone fell in love with it with the Monster Diesel VEKTR headphone.
I have a photo, but it's on my camera's SD card, which is not with me at the moment.
