The red one is the C5, and the black one is the JDS O2 amp. I'm actually referring to a prototype that JDS Labs said on their blog that will be there at their table in Canjam. Since it's only a prototype, you may have to ask them for it, and it won't look as nice as the two amps in the photos.
Listened to the new JDS dac-amp. Was pretty damn good.
Its neither of those pictured above. Think it had a black case and silver end plates. Talked to Jon of JDS about it, and sounds like the design of the DAC is pretty solid. Price expected to be $250.
Was tipped off by one of the exhibitors of custom iems, that the resonessence labs herus dac has real good drive for the loads that customs presents. Guy was right, and I bought one. It sounds really good. Go check it out room 1104. Works off Galaxy S3 and Ipad.
Mark Malinson of Resonessence used to work at ESS, Probably knows what to do with those chips.
And that JH Roxxane is really really good. Just as much detail as the JH13 but much smoother. The smoothness was what really was the most impressive about it.
Oops didn't see this post. Thanks for the info on the new JDS dac+amp. $250 is a very reasonable price considering the price of their C5 amp. Will be interested to learn about the design of the DAC unit once they properly announce it.
Wow, yeah that is cool. This is giving me some modding ideas already
Hoping someone who ends up getting a X or XC could take high resolution photos of those fazors/baffles!
Thoughts to come soon,
