Would my Creative ZXR be able to drive the Alpha Dogs? I need some closed cans for gaming. If the ZXR is not enough to drive them properly, would using my ZXR as a DAC and a Schiit Vali amp be better?

You read my mind.  I run my Iphone through V-Moda Vamp/Verza.

Small, but very enthusiastic. Thanks for sharing!

I just purchased from Audeze for $20 since I would think theirs is the highest quality available, plus I like the idea of saying I purchased something from Audeze since everything else on their website would seriously damage my bank accout.  I wish I had this adapter at the Philly headphone meet :triportsad:

ZXR DAC with Vali amp would most likely be a great combo for the AD. I might do Z > Vali > AD myself.

Thanks! Now if only I didn't have to wait more than a month to get a hold of a pair. ...

Does anyone know if the 150mw x 2 V-Moda Vamp or Verza would adequately power the Alpha Dogs?  If so, I would dare to use them portably on occasion.

Eh I guess Audeze wanted to homage the Grado adapter. :D Or whatever OEM factory they come from..

Probably so, I, admittedly, naively take comfort in seeing their name on it.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. That end plug has to be the same OEM as Grado.

If it's good enough for Grado and Audeze, it's good enough for me.

 

Would it be a compliment or an insult to call the Alpha Dog a poor man's Audeze LCD-XC if that was hypothetically how I assess them (and not taking for granted that "poor man" is just an expression not to be taken literally and anyone who can afford either should consider themselves fortunate)?

Check the Arrow 3G power rating.  If it's comparable to the Verza you should be good to to.

My pleasure.  As my taste skews toward a beefier low end, please keep in mind I consider the Alpha Dog as a complement to my Ultrasone Sig DJ when I want a more balanced sound rather than a replacement for them.

That actually is my thought process as well. My MD's have done an excellent job with providing that. 

 

On another note, I think you're VAMP/Verza will power the Alphas just ok .... I would think the Alphas need more juice than that to really sound good (but that's just for my tastes).

Thanks.  Interestingly, I contacted directly for power specs and they declined to provide.

Maybe I need to save up for the Centrance M8 to pair with the Alpha Dogs?
