The high gain is actually intended for soft recording (i.e. classical recordings) or low level signals from the analogue inputs.

So yeah, it will clip if you play most modern music from the internal DAC.

This type of oversight should be corrected in future B1O labs equipment.

 

It's fine right now as it drives even LCD's fine but none the less.

It's not an oversight, rather a feature to accommodate for different usage.

If you never listen to soft recordings or use P-H with low level sources then simply ignore the high gain option.

From a commercial standpoint. It is.

Well its a learning experience.

 

I asked a few times(implied) if everything was sonically ok. I was referring to this high gain....'oversight' right now.

 

Well next time :/

 

The units are seperate anyway. 

 

The CS is notorious for high power output.

haha, well this didn;t happen during the testing stage so I couldn't have known....

What I didn't know was that my playback gain was set to -6dB in iTunes so it never happened for me.

 

What's CS?

 

If word gets out for P-T, it'll definitely be more notorious for power biggrin.gif

I actually like Project-H more than the standard Objective Combo. O_O sounds more sterile and a tad bit more dynamic, but Project-H is a tad bit warmer and more musical in that sense.

Never heard ODAC but I found the same. My review is on

http://www.head-fi.org/t/653266/project-h-review#post_9209904

 

so yeah. It does have color and personality. but it still is more consumer neutral in the sense that it does what music that was envisioned sounds like.

 

Audio-gd was much more cold and 'audiophile neutral' (trying to hit the flat line that producers don't use). I prefer'd the H a lot more. Pronounced vocals and warm background with better bass

not Very surprisingly, the FR measured flat to a degree not perceivable to humans.

Hmmm... I wonder why....?
