My only question is: Does hiss occur when we pair this amp with high sensitive iems?

I'll be getting one as well. Should be interesting!

Yeah I was wondering about this too, especially with 16-32ohm and less IEMs that have a high sensitivity. Can anyone clarify?

 

The product says it has a "deep and clean background" I think, but does it apply for sensitive IEMs too? If it doesn't hiss w/ low impedance sensitive IEMs, I guess I might save up for it, heh.

 

Only thing is that it seems the USB charging plug is a bit close to the balanced/single-ended inputs, which might make charging (or keeping the amp plugged in) kinda difficult with shorter "portable" interconnects? I hope that it'd be less of an issue with the ALO Rx Mk3-B+ in that regard, so I could use the amp at my desk without having to unplug it from the charger every time (since the Rx Mk3-B+ in balanced back-end mode has some weird grounding hum/hissing issues when plugged into the charger, at least on my model which I haven't sent in yet to ALO to check if a fix is possible.)

 

Very interested in this though.

I don't think anyone has one yet, next week will be better for answers I think

Ooh fully balanced. Have been put off mk3+ due to noise reports with iem. This product makes sense given the divorce with alo. What does not make sense is lack of balanced input on theorem

On a side note the pace of product announcements in portable audio needs to slow down tongue.gif

I have proudly been beta testing the Duet for a month and can report no hissing with my JH16's on medium gain. This amplifier is truly a revelation in combination with my Cypherlab-db.

 

Highly recommended.

I am ssooo tempted to sidegrade itis? but I need another amp like a hole in the head, I will await some reviews I suppose, I almsot hit the pay button at TTVJ, ssooo close, ggrrr I hate conflict,

Agreed it is hard to wait. Hopefully it is dead silent with lower impedance high sensitivity iems/ciems.

Has anyone received theirs yet?
