Much appreciated!!

May have more queries once I get my mini to mini and kobiconn cables.

Thanks a lot.

 

Sure, no problems but you'll get a better response posting in the appropriate thread. The IC and headphone cables for the amp/headphone will no longer be an AK120 topic :D.

Hi, just wondering - when you use the HP P1 with the AK 120 do you know which DAC you are listening to?

Thanks.

Would like to know how to go about doing it.

I suppose I would need

1) a cable terminated with a balanced plug/are single ended and balanced cables the same, btw?

2) a balanced portable amplifier

 

 

Anything else?

Would appreciate a response.

Sorry if this query is so basic.

Your cable has to have 4 wires in order to terminate to a balanced plug.  DO NOT TERMINATE A 3 WIRE CABLE TO THE BALANCE PLUG AS THIS WILL SHORT CIRCUIT YOUR DAP OUTPUT.

That's why I had Ted at Headphone Lounge reterminate my FitEar 000 cable from SE to Balanced. He knows what he's doing and I don't.

And that is the right thing to do.  Hope you'll get your new cables soon. Cheers
