So, I'm looking for that perfect amp... - Page 29

Very true! Honestly I find most portable amps way to big to be even called portable. No way the DX50+C5/quickstep/pico portable would fit comfortably in any pocket.

 

That said, it would be possible to carry a shoulder bag and carry the O2+DX50.

I got this bag and is big enough for my DX50/O2 rig with 2 IEMs with case and some cables. I wrap it across my should and just swing it on my back. Comfortable enough walking around.

Very true but the DX50/Pico Slim fits easily in a coat pocket, that's my daily rig to work. smily_headphones1.gif

Emphasis on the slim, I wasn't talking about that one.

 

But yes, that's one of the truly portable amps. If I ever see a secondhanded pico slim, it's mine!

Also, the D-Zero is a good amp, it's a big improvement over the DX50's HO, if you have hiss issues that is.

I am looking more in terms of quality than other fitting factors but then its my taste and not yours. The bottom line it's a tough decision to pick one why I have more than one. I'll stay tune with your thread, amp is one of my favorite subjects. In any events good luck picking one.

pJgsrr

It's really practically impossible to have a tiny amp with the size of the DX50 without it looking like an Ice cream sandwich. When you get into smaller amps, it is inevitable you'll end up with a pyramidal shape, it's really up to you if you don't feel like climbing that pyramid with you hand. :D

I'm telling you guys, the arrow fits the profile of the DX 50 like a glove and only adds a few extra centimeters. Oh and it's a great amp!

The Apex Glacier is also a pretty good fit lengthwise and only protrudes 14mm off the top/bottom edges of the DX50 and 1mm off the side (according to online measurements). 100mm long x 64mm wide for the DX50 VS 114mm long x 65mm wide for the Glacier.

speaking of a dx50 and pico amp combo...i was actually playing around with this setup just this weekend and here's what i got:

 

 

i actually prefer this setup compared to my dx50/c421 combo. it's a lot lighter to start with and i can hold on to the stack a lot better.

Here is the setup with its little brother; the Pico Slim. wink.gif



Actually when you pick up the stack, it nicely cradles into you hand, making it easy to operate.

Thanks smily_headphones1.gif how does it change the SQ? The hiss on the DX50 is quite noticeable with the 1plus2.
