So, I'm looking for that perfect amp... - Page 20

I also kind of want to do a lipostep mod now but I still have to decide whether to get a Pico power or quickstep!

If I was showing you my Pico Slim you would find out that those were machined from the same aluminum block. You can only achieve this match with strict low tolerance for misfit. Last time I checked he has changed his US enclosure maker and the results are just astounding. It is a nice amp to parade around, I also like the faux letter case which is nicer than anything that sells out there and it is included with the amp. There is no paint on the amp but it is anodized so last forever and looks beautiful. It might not be 4-6 weeks depending if he had some in stock, I gather that the black and silver would be the most common. I would drop a PM to see how long you would have to wait for a specific one. I did not wait 4 to 6 weeks for mine but again, it isn't the PP.

 

Ebay as you mentioned is another option but you are dealing with a company selling HeadAmp goods which probably does not matter because you would get the warranty through Justin's business anyway which is a 3 year coverage.

It is worth the wait, the end result is an amp that you want to keep for years so what's a few weeks? :)

 

I'm loving mine with the DX-50.  A very noticeably improvements in every aspects from the stock headphone out.  The improvements in the depth of the soundstage and much deeper low end are the biggest improvements I've found over the stock.

Why does there have to be TWO great amps available, life would be much simpler if there was only the one to choose biggrin.gif

Plus it has plenty of power to drive most headphones out there.  The PP & DX-50 are also nearly identical in footprint making it a neat looking combo to boot.  Here's mine.

Those two look wonderful together, perfect footprint. it's truly worth having to switch the rechargeable batteries for that raw power beauty. Now I want one badly. frown.gif

Question: if you want to use dura lock fastener, where would you be putting it on? The case or the amp?

I tend to settle on gear that just gets out of the way and then focus on the music, not the gear - Hence the 1½ years I spent with the DX100. I only have one set of ears anyway, so I just need that one perfect rig :)

I'm a student so I have to calculate a lot of costs. Naturally that leads to a lot of indecision and buyer's regret ;-;

I guess this is the correct place for me to post below questions:

 

Which is below amp has really improved the stock sound of DX50?

 

1) BH C&C
2) T1 Tralucent
3) C5 JDS Lab
4) UHA-6SMKII Leckerton
5) Fiio E12
6) iBasso PB2
7) C421 JDS Labs

 

If you have other great amp (but not the super expesnive like RSA or Alo Audio)  than what I have listed above, feel free to suggest.

In all the ones you listed, the RSA intruder was the best. biggrin.gif

Apparently the C&C BH2 synergizes well.
