Topping VX1... anybody try it yet? - Page 9

post #121 of 129

Bump. I am looking into a desktop amp for speakers for my pc. I use a pair of wireless "gaming" headphones when gaming (due to mic and the wireless part), and prefer to use my desk speakers for the rest. Music and video at my home office. An desk amp would be nice, and I am looking at used recievers, but the price of the Topping VX1 is 1) as cheap as something used in Norway, 2) it is small and looks nice below my screen and on my desk, and 3) if I someday get a nice pair of headphones I can connect them directly. 

 

So how does the Topping hold up in 2016? For the price and a nice pair of used bookshelves?

@ paulkemp & the Head-Fi board:

 

Surprised to see paulkemps post here. I'm in the same boat: thinking about getting a VX1 in 2016.

 

I have been resarching the VX1 for the last few days / weeks / months, and it seems to be the only product that meets my requirements. I want to have a high quality amp, and also use my headphones. All while not spending hunderds of dollars. 

 

Same question as Paulkemp, does this product still hold up in 2016?

I have the Topping TP32EX and it drives speakers and a headphone together if you like. Great sound and build quality for the money, no regrets on my part and would buy again.

It also contains a remote control.

Interesting. The TP32EX is not a newer product though. Amazon lists its introduction as August 2013, and the VX1 as December 2013. So the VX1 is more recent.

 

Still good to know you like the TP32EX though. Any reasons why you preferred this one over the VX1?

I needed a Coaxial input which the VX1 does not have. Also it utilizes the Cirrus Logic CS4392 DAC and has higher output through the speaker outputs courtesy of the

Tripath TK2050 Digital Amplifier.

Lastly it has a remote control which I like since I use this amp to listen to my films through headphones and can adjust the volume.

The VX1 is a very good amp, I would say to you to look at what you need in the functionality of each amp and then choose the correct one.

You mentioned that the VX1 is more recent, this is a non point as the 32EX has better parts and is made at the same time.

 

On this home page:

http://www.tpdz.net/en/products.htm

 

You will see the 32EX is described as "Flag ship combo of TK2050 T-AMP, 24bit/192KHz coaxial DAC, 24bit/96KHz (16bit/192KHz) USB DAC and headphone amplifier!"

Thanks to both iBurger and Cecala of you for your replies.

 

I have looked at both, and althought the TP32EX may have a better quality, it lack those sexy knobs the VX1 has. I may have to go for the one with the knobs... I know, I am weak for knobs. 

 

Chinese products seem to have a very strong, or shiny, light. How are shiny are the blue lights when the lights in the room are off?

On the 32EX you have 3 steps of brightness for the display and lights. Step one is quite bright down to step 3 which is quite dim. These settings can be also adjusted with the remote.

@paulkemp

 

I contacted Topping support. And they told me that they will release a new model soon which features bluetooth. I'm waiting for that one!

You won't be disappointed as Topping is a good manufacturer of these products. I'm very happy with my EX32 and as I have already stated, I would buy again with total confidence.
