Not too sure if the HP-A4 actually has enough power to drive the D5000. You may want to go have a look at other amps that have some sort of dedicated AC power.

Yeah, I can get other amp later, and use the HP-A4 as a DAC only. For now I'm enjoying the sound. Enjoy yours :L3000:

Sorry for the delay as I
I'll just post some brief impressions:

 

 

 

 It didn't manage to drive the Alpha Dogs and Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro 250Ohms.

 

 

Well that bums me out....  I was hoping this could driver high impedance cans... like the DT-990.  oh well...  Thanks for posting.

 

Peace OOK

Just wondering if it works well if I use the A4 as a DAC pre-amp while connecting the headphone out of the A4 to the input of the ALO PanAm :o

 

Using a pair of Fostex TH600.

Not sure about that. The volume control knob seems to affect the RCA out so I'm not sure if the RCA is actually a lineout.

I intend to use the headphone out to the PanAm while leaving the RCA for my speakers
