I just realized that the middle position was actually the high gain and top position was the medium gain. Strange setup.

Depending on where the switch is placed in the feedback, middle position will be either low or high

Just wondering if Shoshine has been concluded as the best choice for Pico Power?

 

I have followed some threads but not all, wondering if somebody can save me sometime?

post #335 of 367

My another concern is:

 

I have already got one Pico AMP/DAC, and I my HD600 is on the way.

 

I am wondering if the old Pico amp can drive HD600? or I have to go for pico power?

I have no idea if they are the best but Shoshine are reasonably priced (here in China) and they do a great job.

I have one for my airsoft, it works well.

 

imedion sounds have issue of qc, however provides 9.6V power. With 2 will be 19.2, which means a little bit more power than Shoshine.

 

To drive the headphone, I am trying to get as much power as I can though I don't prefer desk amp...

After doing some research, if cost doesn't matter iPower's Li-ploymer 9V would be probably the best choice...

 

Still wondering if it is necessary to upgrade my pico amp to pico power so that I can drive my HD600?

I have both and the Pico power is a huge upgrade for full sized headphones.

thx, I am considering to get one. However, however my budget will be tight if I want to get iPower rechargable Li-ploymer battery. May I ask what batteries do you use for your Pico Power?

I waited till I saw good brands on sale, like Duracell and got them for well under two bucks each. They last me a long time, don't think I will ever go thru my stockpile

I did that for a while with the Stepdance but the cost adds up. The Soshines are an inexpensive one time purchase and I am saving a lot of money. I wonder why I waited so long.

I have some rechargeables but they are mostly unmatched and I don't have a chrger any more.

this is where i get the 9V duracells i include with the amp. with shipping, depending on location in the U.S., on the min order of 12 batteries its $1.9 to $2 per battery

 

it comes out to about 5 cents per hour to run the amp this way

^ So that's 70-80 hours on an installation? Okay, that beats the snot out of my Soshines. I might get 22 to 25 hours. That's with IEMs at low gain.
