Audinst-HUD-MX2 DAC/Amp - Page 19

post #271 of 279

Any more reviews of this unit? It's been a couple months so I'm assuming the units are well broken in?

post #272 of 279

I should be writing a review soon (week or two). Going to compare this to an objective 2/odac (ODA)and a graham slee bitzie. 

 

I think that with a non-crappy power supply (£10 worth at least) and a suitable power conditioner (as for all audio equipment) the Audinst sounds quite a lot better running on AC. Without AC the ODA handily beats it across the board. But when plugged in they both sound very similar and it's anyones choice which they prefer.

I'm currently running on USB power and I've been happy with the results. Although I want to test it using the plug I'm scared that Aussie 240 outlets will fry the unit if I use a plug adapter.  Should I replace the plug pack entirely?

i'm using the mx2 in Singapore where its 220V/240V, 50 Hz without any issues.

Off to buy an adapter then. Thanks.

I also use this MX2 in Chile where it is 220V / 50Hz, no problem with that. The unit gets warm when plugged to AC, but not too hot. I use it to drive my DT880 250 ohm, with the gain jumper on original position. The combo works fine, clear and crisp sound but too bright for me. I'm ordering a Little Dot MKIII to see how the Beyers sounds with tubes. Hope they warm : )
