Oh my gosh that new logo looks awesome.

Oh man! I want one...

my JDS Labs C5 is up for sale

I want to buy it now, but when I add it to the cart...nothing

It works just fine for me.


I probably won't buy one considering I already use the C5 as my 2nd best amp with the ODAC, and my best portable amp. It sure looks nice though. I noticed the specifications between the C5 and the amp section of the C5D are a little different. It's also nice that JDS Labs took in the feedback from customers and added a 3-way bass boost instead of the C5's 2-way one.

Kudos to JDS Labs for incorporating customer feedback into there products!

The re-designed website looks much slicker too. The old website was starting to look a bit outdated. The only problems I have with the new layout are the bright colours and the cheesy marketing (let's face it though, a lot of companies have this kind of marketing).

Must be the dang Internet Explorer IE8 here at work. They won't let us use anything else here so I will have to wait until I get home. I love my C5. I thought about getting the ODAC Combo, but it's too big...

output impedance is a lot lower on the C5D

post #1435 of 3342

I am wondering whether the amp section has any significant change or not.

Could you PM or email us more information (screenshot)?

 

We have a C5D release article ready to go. It will be published as soon as we're confident the site launch is running smoothly.

FYI: the image in the C5D Instruction Sheet PDF (linked on the web site) is of the C5.  Might want to update that.  Just sayin'  ;)

 

It's very tempting, esp. when it's $50 less expensive than I thought it would be.  The Chg/Bat switch is very handy for Android users with an OTG cable (and others, too, I guess), as I've read about the need to disabling charging on, e.g., FiiO's similar product when using it with OTG.

Thanks for the note. Updated!

Happy to help!

 

Since the case dimensions are the same as the C5, can we substitute our custom C5 cases with the C5D case, using the C5D end plates?

Yes, that will work. Only the rear plate has changed in C5D.
