TOPPING NX1 Portable Headphone Amplifier Impressions Thread - Page 52

post #766 of 1848

So I guess all the sellers listing an OPA1611 in their descriptions are wrong? (not questioning your findings, just wondering why the misinformation in the descrips. Ebay, Amazon are all the same)

 

Should I still assume this would be a decent upgrade from an e6?

This was confirmed ages ago. Topping told me that it's not the OPA1611.

Is this one of the most bang for your buck portables right now? Seems like a great buy.

Seems like a sweet amp....You guys should stock 'em - amazon.ca is a total rip-off;)

Tis pretty tempting, just so many choices right now (e11k, e12iem(soonly, i hope)). I just wish it could be had from an actual retailer (lmue, penon, etc) - it would also gimme an excuse to grab another pair of phones, like say those havis.

Glad you're enjoying the theme, if only Fiio would release a new fw version ;).

I would like to say while SAP-5 is a very nice sounding amp (using it right now) it's purpose is for giving IEM a nice boost in power, while it will drive my Shure headphones (440,840,940) I don't like it's chances on succeeding incredibly well with high impedance gear, especially without a gain switch. Therefore those looking at driving for example 250ohm Beyers your much better off with NX1.

tl;dr: NX1 has more power (seemingly)
