SPL PHONITOR 2 NEW HEADPHONE AMP - Page 11

post #151 of 211
Yes. It sounds wonderful. Certainly makes going balanced worth the extra cash for the cable.

You will need this cable from Peter at Double Helix cables

That's awesome. I am still planning on getting the P2 in the far off future. Have you by chance tried the HD800 balanced with the above mentioned setup?!

Phonitor mini review in german

post #154 of 211

Thanks for posting that link. They once again confirmed that the Mini shares the most important parts with its bigger brother and gives a similar sound experience on a budget (well, almost...).

Thanks Nomax!  That looks like a nice tidy layout.  Good to see all those relays in there (rather than routing the signal to all the switches via lots of wiring).  I also had an email from SPL to confirm that its headphone output is DC coupled.

Nice, clean layout... my electrical engineering side is satisfied to see that ;-)

Where, if anywhere, are these available in the US.

I just added the Meridian Direct DAC to the P2.  Wow!!!!  Listening on my classic Sony MDR-V600 and you would not believe that this HP sold for $99 USD.

I'm using Phonitor2 with HD800 and Chord Qute Ex. I reterminated the original Sennheiser cable with female XLRs to use with P2. My conclusions is that the balanced route, at least with HD800, is worthwile. I'm not able to describe the exact differences, but my basic feeling is the sound is more fleshed out.

 

I'd like to get an aftermarket cord, but few are available with female XLRs. I guess I have to get on a very long waiting list for something like Toxic cables. Adapters? My opinion is they will compromise the sound in addition to being expensive. And I don't feel like reterminating aftermarket cables.

I just lost a ebay auction by $1 in the last 3 seconds on a reterminated hd800 cable to dual xlr. Would have been nice, to have....

I am very curious for impressions on how the new Phonitor-2 and the Phonitor-Mini will pair with the HD800  ..

I ordered mine directly from the SPL-USA website. They take and fulfill online orders.
