Looks really nice.  Too bad it's not balenced....

Good looks for sure. Hopefully the output impedance is lower this time around.

What was wrong with the original one? Are the changes just cosmestic?

post #8 of 192
Dunno about any changes on this one compared to original. But I do recall that one having a somewhat high output impedance (10 ohms or so) which made it less than ideal for most low impedance headphones. Plus it seemed to work better at higher impedance in terms of power delivery. At 32 ohms it was modestly powerful but nothing special. At 300 or 600 ohms it was among the most powerful amps available. Maybe that's why people tended to pair it with beyer headphones a lot.

Evidently, the balanced outputs in the back can be used to drive balanced headphones.  That is cool.  I guess the 'Laterality' knob is a balance knob.  I am not sure why one would want that.  I assume it locks at center.  I wonder if the sound of it is different than the original 'Phonitor?'

Inconvenient, but still worth a look.

Straight from their website: http://spl.info/home/blog/article/seine-exzellenz-phonitor-der-2.html

 

Some interesting things in there, namely the amp being 'optimally suited for low-impedence headphones' and support for 'dynamic, balanced, and electrostatic headphones.' Whaaaaaaat.

 

Edit: On Facebook SPL is saying that the output impedance is 0.18 ohms.

There are no electrostatic outputs.  My guess is they mean you can use the outs to a transformer box like the WEE or SRD.

Yeah, that'd be my assumption too. Just seems goofy to advertise it that way, lol.
