Now I use shoe polish cloth from the hotel
Last time I use anti slip mate , but with the time can make on your amp a DOT print , that's why I change to shoe polls cloth from Hotel
Or any thick fabric

Looks like it that i might get it early next week, I waited this long an extra week wouldnt hurt.

 

I finally think I have my setup complete. This year has been good so far, found my IEM, found my headphone, sound my DAC and I am sure I've also found my amp too. 

 

My final stage is to collect all the ECM label albums.

I haven't read the whole thread but I want to ask a small question before I start. Is Epsilon S too powerful for c/iems? I have SE5way, it is not the most sensitive ciem so I assume it wouldn't hiss but I still want to learn the opinions of other people. I saw Bakoon portable amp too, it looks way bigger and more powerful, which is an overkill for ciems so maybe Epsilon S can do the job.

Once i get my amp i am happy to test it with fad vi and ck100pro and let you know.

meanwhile i am sure Mr Rudi can chip in.

Thanks a lot audionewbi. I would like to know the results with sensitive iem, if they are fine, my SE5way would be more than ok. I remember rudi is usually using high impedance earsonics iems like SM64, I am sure they wouldn't hiss. Something like Roxanne or Shure SE series impressions would be nice I guess.

Can anyone find a picture of wagnus amp internal structure?

I'm not sure how sensitive the SE5 is, but my wagnus definitely has hiss with my NT6 Pro's.

SE5way is not sensitive at all, it has around 135 ohm impedance. However that quote pushed me away a bit. I wanted to buy end of the game portable amp to use with everything. Apparently Wagnus is not performing well with the c/iems in general. Too much power I guess.

Yeah, it has more hiss than any other portable amp I have used so far with my iems. Regarding volume range, I can only go up 2 clicks up from no volume until it is too loud, so with iems, volume range is extremely small. You will also have to make sure the source you are using is not too "hot" due to the already very limited volume range with iems.

I think I can skip Wagnus S and look for another TOTL portable amp. What do you say to CLabs Duet?

I never heard the Duet, but I had the VorzAmp Pure II, and that amp was dead silent and sounded amazing.

Not sure how it compares to the Duet, but member Shigzeo has both & can tell you more though.

Oh, thanks for the information. I will try to ask him later on.

 

Pure II is not a balanced amp right?

post #313 of 698
No it's not a balanced amp, only single ended.
post #314 of 698

Ok thank you for all the information so far mates, really much appreciated. I guess my search won't end soon :happy_face1:

post #315 of 698

From what I've read about wagnus it is the best single ended amp in the market in this format. I'll guess Ill find out soon.
