Hi Soren, which top kit did you ordered and how does it sound?

NO USB DAC FUNCTION?

The One And Only Topkit. Send a PB2 to Head-Fi'er HiFlight. He hand-picks the buffers and opamps and when you place your order he'll ask you which headphones you use, what sort of music you're into and all that. Based on that, he'll compose a kit of opamps and buffers (more than one set) that should give you what you're after. He might ask you for $75 as well. 

 

He suggested I tried the ISL55002 opamp (color coded green, by Hiflight) with bypassed buffers but my K10 picked up background noise with those. Now I'm on another set of opamps (color coded blue) with HA5002 buffers and I'm getting a very clean and crisp sound with absolutely ZERO background noise. If I pause the music and crank the volume on the PB2 up to InstaDeaf*, it is still dead quiet. The pink opamps with HA5002 is VERY pleasing as well, with a wider soundstage and mids to die for. 

 

 

Keep in mind that I'm talking about small changes to an already quite decent audio chain. A topkit will not magically transform your Beats Solo to Stax SR-009. But once you have your rig just the way you like it, a topkit might be just that last frosting on the cake.

 

 

*Although not designated as such on the volume dial, instant deafness is to be expected with the PB2 at 60+ percent volume with sensitive (c)iems. Turn it above 80% and I'm pretty sure the coroner will be picking BA driver shrapnel out of your brain at the autopsy.

Caps Lock jokes aside: The USB DAC function will materialize but might need a FW update.

Mine is also on the way...I was going to wait, but I'm really not a fan of the wolfson 8740, so I'm pretty excited for this.  Now, how much are the DX50's going to be selling for....

post #2097 of 13841

Interesting indeed.  :L3000:

 

Let me know when Rockbox becomes available for the DX90. It is worth its weight in gold on the DX50 (although admittedly Rockbox doesn't weigh very much).
