First attempt at making anything whatsoever. Had cheapo Jaycar right angle plugs lying around and some 3 core cable so I thought I'd give it a go. Total cost about $4AUD

I'm using the Top kit from headfi member HiFlight at the moment. The stock kit is quite good also. The PB2 thread us quite good to read up on. Mike did quite a detailed analysis of the op-amps, he eve tried the buffers as amps. So did I but didn't like the sound. Worth mucking around with

LME49860 with the Topkit buffers

 

The better sounding stock kit (it comes with 2 sets)

post #592 of 930

have u tried the LME49990 OPAMPS W/ the HA5002 BUFFER, IMO the best combo on the pb2

post #593 of 930
I think HiFlight replaced the LME49990s with the LME49860s. I'm using the same HA5002 buffers. Sounds good but I also like the stock kit the PB2 came with

still on stock but the second photo is my main setup for now. much better for me than the stock the came with although it shortens the battery playback time. i was reading the PB2 thread until morning and it seems HA5002 buffers are well praised. ive contacted Ron apparently he had something to deal with for the rest of 3 weeks. ill just enjoy mine until he came back, for now pairing it with DB2 on coax with DX50 was such a bliss. really enjoying the resolution out of it nice to startup the new year :)

That's good you're enjoying it because the second pic is a great combo. I regularly go back to that combo and think this sounds really really good.

Thanks, I'll be installing that kit now!

 

I might be getting a topkit down the road, but for now I'll give the stock chips a run. Until now I've mostly just had the amp running burn-in with random music as I'm still trying to get my hands on some hirose connectors. 

 

Fun fact: I have those same cheapo connectors. You forgot the o-rings when closing them ;)

Oh damn... That config is pretty damn good! Now it's even harder to wait for the balanced connectors!

I'm such a noob. They never gave me any o-rings when I bought them, I'll go back and check. Anyway I might throw these away and start again with something better

I'm a big fan of the Neutrik angled 3.5mm plugs. Not too expensive, easy to work with and great quality.
