Does the Duet come with that short portable kobiconn balanced mini-to-mini w/ the red Cypher Labs shrink wrap around the ends?

If so, what do you think about it/the sound quality, and does the interconnect allow enough room for charging the -dB + the Duet in a stack while listening to the combo?

 

Or was it an add-on/upgrade interconnect sold by Cypher Labs on the side?

The Kobicon connector does not come with the DUET. The new usb charge port is a mercy grace lord saving wonderful miracle as it means carrying a near-universal plug and outlet for 3 or four of my devices rather than 3 or four mains adapters. You can charge using the USB adapter with any cable supplying the cables you use use the space correctly. The Kobicon adapter bents outward, away from the USB port and therefor doesn't get in the way of using the amp with any stereo or balanced connector.

Well dudes, I've officially added my opinion about the DUET here at Headfi and at ohm image, with small variations depending on audience. I didn't expect DUET to be THIS good. Why? 720, as much as it completely rocks, has a higher noise floor than is strictly necessary. DUET has one of the lowest noise floors out there in its class, and in fact should mate perfectly with about 98% of semi-sensitive to sensitive IEMs out there. The gain stage is very good, though not quite as good as the Vorzüge PURE II or latest Rx. But better than Rx is the incredible stereo image, that is probably wider than your ears are used to hearing. In fact, because it is so wide, it may sound dull at first. Get used to it. It's something else. 

 

Then get used to the smooth, low-noise signal and very high dynamic range. DUET exhibits so little dynamic compression on music. You will be surprised. Anyway, I'm very keen on this amp.

I agree. The duet is superb and the combo with the solo -db exceeds any previous portable experience I've had by quite a decent margain. Awesomely black background with iems- smooth, spacious and detailed with nuance. Very nice indeed. I just wish I could use more of the volume pot with iems on low gain; I use very little of it. Thank goodness it's balance is very good with sensitive stuff. My F111 has never sounded better.

I even love the L2 with the Duet but usually just use it with my ciems.

My only two real complaints have to do with the volume pot: that it doesn't use the entire travel, and something else, but it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the 720 for IEMs. It is a rocking amp for sure.

Not sure if you guys know about this yet... but on their facebook page, they're giving away a Duet for free! I think there's only a couple days left to enter, so probably should hurry.

How does the Duet compare to your Intruder's amp section??

Just got these, and first impression is how much sense of space and air the duet gives. Makes my fairly dark ASG-2 have a wonderful sense of air. Imaging is also very natural and impressive. So far... after about 15 minutes... im pretty wowed :basshead:
