Just a quick question before I order, if I get the 2.5 x- 6.5x gain can I open it up and change the resistors out to change the gain? it doesnt bother me much if I have to resolder

 

Make sure to check the warranty policy before you cut the resistors.

Yeah I will, just wanted to know if I could in case the standard 2.5x - 6.5x causes clipping on my DT880s

On another note, I'm about to pull the trigger...


Getting a Hatchetman engraved because why not? L3000.gif

Yeah... this was taken upside down and just flipped lol



The setup biggrin.gif looks awesome


Think I may end up getting rid of my soundcard and going full external but still not 100% sure on that yet redface.gif

Edit, if your using the O2 on just mains power is it ok to keep the batterys in or just take them out?
nevermind, ended up taking them out

I ordered my O2 yesterday and it should arrive tomorrow...excited!

 

This is a relatively small appreciation thread...is the O2 strangely unpopular?

No, you are terribly wrong. The O2 and ODAC are very popular here.

Way over one year,  I bought them from JDS Labs  - what a great place to buy  -  and I am very happy.

I'm using the O2 and ODAC  with my Toshiba Satellite laptop and the DT 880 (250 Ohm) cans.

The system sounds great.

 

Proud and Happy owner of the JDS O2 and ODAC,

 

JJ

As JakeJake describes, O2 is a popular design. The O2 and ODAC cover a  broad range of applications (portable and desktop, amplifier, or amp+DAC, etc.), so discussions cover a wide number of threads and forum categories. Thus, this thread is a small representation of O2 users.

 

On a somewhat related note, here's a look at O2 on display at CanJam this morning:

The original designer of the O2 & ODAC was at one time totally banned from Head-Fi, even talking his name was banned.

So for a time he was referred to as Lord Voldemort or He who can not be named.

 

Here is a large thread dedicated to the Objective 2 & ODAC

I ordered the O2 from JDSLabs and was surprised at the free engraving option.  Being that if I were to start thinking about the engraving, I'd drive myself crazy for weeks trying to think of what to engrave, I just typed in "random quote" on google and ended up with, "Remember my name."  How appropriate for an amp designed by he-who-cannot-be-named...

 

Because I'm exceptionally lazy at the moment, my exposure to the O2 is limited to the headphones within reach of my living room chair, which would be the Mad Dog (3.2).  Despite only about 3 minutes of listening, it's now my new favorite amp.

 

Score one for NWAVG--I mean, the dark lord...
