I don't think Audio gd is mentioning anywhere that opening the gear voids the warranty. For many of their amps & dacs you have to open the case for jumper setting etc.

There is a sticker seal there that says if you tear it, the warranty is void.

 

Seems thats a little misleading since like you said, you have to change jumper settings and for those who install their own TCXO upgrade.

When  audio-gd started adding warranty stickers, Mine unit did not come with any warranty sticker unless you bought it from a different seller then audio-gd.

post #139 of 527
No I bought it from the audio gd directly from Hong Kong.

I guess its a new thing.
post #140 of 527

Maybe as you got the TXCO fitted there is no need to open up the unit??? Strange though. I'd email Kingwa about it.

post #141 of 527

Well there will still be a reason to open it up, in-case something bad happen during the  updating of the usb transfer chip bios.

Mine looks different to yours mine has no markings on the knobs it looks like the 12 series . Burn in is best to run with it all connected so signal goes through whole unit . I may be wrong though

What a beauty indeed.  Something about that industrial, no frills, "pro" non consumer look gives me goosebumps.  The brushed aluminium is great and really caches the eye.

So far I have noticed what people call "fun" and warm.  The lows on this are so nice.  Definitely a low end boost which is noticeable on my DT 770 250's as they tend to be very neutral.  But in a good way.  I don't know how else to describe it as my audiophile terminology is limited lol.   But the highs are not as piercing or shrieking as my ZXR which was better than the Z for this but not perfect.  Not sure why.  Might have been the output impedance.  Oh well. 

But from what I hear, you need another 100 hours minimum of burn in time for this to shine.  It's gonna take a while as I will be working a lot of shifts coming up.  

I almost destroyed my ears when switching the gain setting lol.  I thought it was on high already and I went to switch it and it was on low gain at 3 o clock position.  My ear drums are not happy right now.  Which leads me to a question, maybe a silly one.  What would be more beneficial?  Low gain at 4 o clock ish or high gain at 11 o clockish.  I figure low gain is fine however maybe one of you have some insight I do not.

All in all a great investment and value for what you pay.  Even with the TCXO upgrade.  Only thing that peeved me is the custom import fees they nailed me with.  Only $30 but not expected.  I only really payed a few bucks in taxes on $80 USD(85 CDN), DHL automatically applied $25 as fees for the border adding taxes.  What a rip, those goofs.

Hi,

That is my audio gd 15.32.

Cheers

Steve.

A-GD seriously needs to sell these with an analog input. I'd be on it, like white on rice.

Mine has an analogue input.

cheers

Steve.

post #146 of 527
Oh? Pic please. The only amp/dac that A-GD has with an analog input is the Compass 2, AFAIK.
post #147 of 527
Ya the 15.32 doesn't have any analogue inputs. At least none that are listed on their website. Mine definitely does not.

Hi,

 

See picture. Mine is plugged into a rotel pre (through the blue leads - wireworld rca ). I run it as a dac through my cd player (red lead/coax dig- wireworld). Which has improved the sound significantly. The yellow power lead is an upmarket one and it opened up the soundstage even more.

 

I hope that helps.

 

Cheers

 

Steve.

Sorry I don't quite know how this proves yours has analogue inputs?

You have the line outs going to rotel and the 15.32 is fed via digital coax.

There are no analogue inputs on your 15.32.
