TOPPING NX1 Portable Headphone Amplifier Impressions Thread - Page 6

post #76 of 522
I was going to buy this one but I took the plunge and got the Fiio E17 instead. I'm still waiting to see an proper comparison between the NX1 and the E11.

Ordered one myself. Will take a while to get here though. Can't wait to read some of your experiences and thoughts.

 

Let's hope this little amp is a steal :)

I think it is. The 1000mAH battery is much larger than many other amp batteries, and it sounds good.

 

I've had it a few weeks, used around 2 hours every day commuting, and it still hasn't needed a charge.

With what are you paring it? You owe me $35 if it's not any good :p :p

How does it pair with the Havi? That is what I would be looking at it for...

Please update when you get it! Thinking of buying it with my Havi.

For me it really brings out the quality of the Havi b3. With my phone is sounds not more than ok, with the amp it sounds really good. IMO an amp is an amp. If the noise-level is low and amping power is sufficient, its the best you can get.

I've read ClieOs' review of SMSL sAp-4s and sAp-7.

http://www.inearmatters.net/2014/05/impression-smsl-sap-4s-and-sap-7.html

 

In the comments, he said this about NX1:

 

No, I have not heard the NX1 myself. But by looking at its internal (pictures floating online), it seems to be quite similar to the topology of sAp-4s with the same chip. If it is, then the performance should be pretty close.

 

In the review, he compared sAp-4s to FIIO E5 and sAp-7 to FIIO E6.

 

Can someone compare NX1 to either one of SMSL or FIIO duos? Or even a better amplifier - e.g. E12/E17?

The NX-1 can't really be compaired to E12 or E17, they're about twice as powerful as the NX-1 and both have a dual opamp setup. Not to mention that the E17 is a DAC/amp.

Can it be compared to C&C Bh2 ?

I would think so. They look like to be in the same class. Though most people prefer the E11 over it, but it seems only because of the warm sound of the E11, where the BH is more neutral. Also the E11 has better EMI shielding.

if he compares it to the E5.... then how good can it be?

From my memory it sounds better than the amp portion of the e17.

For under 50 bucks it really is a very good portable amp for the built and sound qualities
