TOPPING NX1 Portable Headphone Amplifier Impressions Thread - Page 8

post #106 of 1988

I've decided to jump on the bandwagon, and ordered myself the NX1 from DX. If all goes well, I'll be receiving it in the next 3 weeks or so.

I'll give you my feedback once I get it.

I'll tell you a trick that me and my mate used to do before we bought new phones. You get a piece of styrofoam, measure and and cut it to size and then have a feel of it. But we went further and actually loaded the foam with weights to make it weigh roughly the same and walked around with them for a few days to see how it feels. This was back when phones where the size of bricks, mind you. :P

These are now on Amazon for $43 with Prime, which means I cold receive in 2 days.  From those that have experience with this amp, are you pretty confident its at least worth that money for a beginner to try out their first amp?

My NX1 arrived today, rather quick shipping times from Deal Xtreme. I think that's a total of 1 week, 2 days ago.

The battery is deal flat so I'm letting it charge. 




I'll pop in a little later when I've had some listening time.

 

o 1 week, 2 days ago

I think I'm more excited than you are!!!!

 

Can't wait to hear your impressions of it. My main concern is soundstage and tonality (warm/cold).

I must say I'm quite impressed with the performance of NX1, its quite a detailed little amp, I find it rather neutral in tonal character maybe a fraction cool (bright) with a slight tilt in the low end and forward mid-range. There's no background hiss, nor any channel imbalance at low volumes with this unit. The soundstage is quite spacious with T-Peos H-300. I haven't put the amp into high gain yet. Low gain the power is more than likely focused for low impedance IEMs which works out well because you can make fine adjustments without blowing your ears out. It might lack a touch of refinement if I'm going to get fussy but for $40 like DMax said it's more than capable running from DX50 line out, clean and crisp. I think it's going to be worth peoples time trying out though let me run a few more IEM's and Full-size headphones then report back later on.

Hmmm cold is something I try to steer away from. But I do love forward mids. 

 

Do you have any other amps to compare this to?
