Still, most people agree that the mod t5p (dn5p) has less bass than lcd2 or 3, less bass than th900, d7000, probably at same level with 009s and more than the hd800s with original cable. The bass is quite deep, tight and punchy thanks to beyers superb magnet arrangment.

 

But... it is far from PURE BASS comparing to other rigs at same price/performance level.

 

 

Are you kidding with us here??? less bass than lcd2 or 3.  roflmao.  Those people probably have problem with their hearing.  I dare to say not a single person who listened to the modded t5p would agree with this statement, myself included.  While mid and high were still there and clear, bass was just overwhelming and so forward/in your face that it's all you will hear/feel.  Maybe a track with much spread out bass and light acoustic bass would give a different impression.

Yes, not on the body overall like from speakers and real subs but much more concentrated on your ear drums.  Different feel.  That's why we can HPs "ear speakers" for a reason.  biggrin.gif

Just to be clear that I liked the modded t5p and admired the bass level it achieved without affecting the clarity of mid/high but the sheer elevated volume/power of the bass did take over other characteristics of the HPs.

I didn't mean to downplay you or insult you in anyway, so I: apologize if my previous comment was a little bit harsh. 

 

It's pretty obvious you have created something special, something that a lot of people enjoy listening to. 

 

I got the ZO2 as a fun little device to play with. It isn't suited for any reference level listening. With that said, I've noticed the channel imbalance a while back, so it did make listening a bit hard. 

 

The ZO2 has a couple of gain options, culminating with a option that more or less bypasses the internal amplifier and lets you control the volume with your source. Pretty interesting device though....

 

The red setting is pretty much unlistenable for most music. It's great for movies though...

 

With that said, the bass on the T5P, while overpowering, was definitely nicely controlled. I don't think I heard anything that surpassed the sheer level of bass that monster produces.

I'll post the rest of the other photos once I'm done processing them (to make sure lighting is even in all of the shots).

 

WELL IT'S ABOUT TIME!  biggrin.gif

Can't agree more!!! It's really a fantastic amplifier called Dn1. It's builder said that Dn1 is able to easily blow all the best amps away and I'm  lucky enough to have a chance to listen to the amp for a while. It is said that a new amp second to Dn1 from the same builder is coming and the new amp is built to compete with ECBA even though it is a palm-sized one. I'm looking forward to it!!!

Thanks!

Dn1 is THE most incredible amp i've ever heard, and heard of.

AFAIK it charges for at least 4k on purchase, does break easily for whatever reason you can think of, and may ask another 3k if you dare request a repairing procedure.

 

Just fantastic huh?

Hi palchiu, I don't know much about Dn1 either, but I can tell you that I was totally shocked by its beautiful sound. Its price is 4000usd ( Dn1 with pre amp output is 7000usd)  and you deserve it because it can easily drive your LCD2 to an unbelievable level. It is so sad that I can't afford it.frown.gif

Hi dafangwoo, it must not be true. Dn1 is said to have very good quality.wink_face.gif

another 3k for repairing? don't we have some sort of warranty?

 

this implies the quality of DN1 is poor, and the producer doesn't take responsibility of the product.

 

Do you have any proof for the price you stated?

Thank

Greater troubles await.
