So, I'm looking for that perfect amp... - Page 23

While the DX50 is ripe with clarity and detail, it is a bit flat and involving compared to adding the BH2. The BH2 takes the texturing from a 2D to a 3D sound adding feeling and emotion that gives you goosebumps. It also adds a euphoric feel and slam throughout the frequency range while retaining the clarity.

 

Not having a higher end amp to compare the $100 BH2, it makes me wonder what is possible with a much higher end amp such as the Pico Power or the Portaphile 627. Would it really sound $400 dollars better or am I already 95 percent of the way there with the BH2 given my current headphone collection?

 

BTW, the 80 hour battery life is true. I have only recharged it 3 times in the last 6 months. That sure beats 4 hours battery life with the Portaphile 627. In terms of fit stacking with the DX50, per the pictures below, it is a close match width and height wise perfectly fitting up to the curve of both so it is not going to tip while operating the buttons on a desk. As you can see, the line in and line out match perfectly. Length wise, it goes from matching bottoms to past the volume down button providing ample support again laying on the desk. 

 


THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HONEST STRAIGHT AHEAD EVALUATION ........

whats pairing better with the DX50 the C&C bh2 or the JDS Labs C5. it has been decided beteen these two only. would like both but the wallet says one.

Between these two amps, Tralucent T1 ($259) vs C&C BH ($99),  which is better amp to pair with DX for for closed headphone?

I mean it really improve the stock sound of DX50 to be more depth, more impact, more detail...

Haven't heard the BH but the T1 greatly improves the soundstage, depth, detail, bass impact and clarity of DX50 IMO.

Welcome to Team DualLoc!

 

...won't it be more stable if you use two pieces perpendicular to the DAP & amp?

You're right I wasn't thinking but for me it wasn't unstable. My way allows me to remove the battery cover on the DX50 easily without cutting the dual lock length wise. Yours looks lower profile so I might try and look for lower profile versions if they exist.

Yeah its quite a good amp. I bought it mainly to drive my mad dogs but found out it drives the IEMs quite well too and the opamp rolling ability is awesome too with the chance to try out different sounds

Soren,

 

Is your dual lock low profile?. It also looks thinner (less wide) than mine, did you have to cut it?

Damn that section before the battery cover starts on the DX50 needs about 15mm so the 19mm strip will cover it. I need it because I carry around a spare battery.
