Suggestions for a preferably balanced amp/dac combo for Audez'e LCD-3?

post #1 of 5

Hi!



 



I'm currently using the LCD-3 with the Gungnir/Mjolnir combo and I love it. The problem is there's an intermittent buzzing in the right channel that appears to come from my house's electricity and isn't Schiit's fault (they replaced the Mjolnir once). A hospital-grade transformer does nothing. This makes me want to use them a lot less than I should. I absolutely love them but the buzzing from the Mjolnir drives me up a wall.



 



So, I'm looking for either a balanced amp that can be used with the Gungnir for probably around $600, or a new combo for around $1000. I would prefer for the combo to be balanced as I have a Bellatone cable, but that's going to be impossible at that price point I think. I would need to sell the combo (or the Mjolnir) first so this is why the prices are fairly tight.



 



Thank you for the help!

For the amp only option, check the Matrix Quattro - it's fully balanced, sounds good and will fit your budget. 

The only odd thing is they use 2 x TRS connectors for balanced, which is hardly a standard.

Thank you! I will take a look. Would it be possible to easily procure an XLR - TRS adapter?

redco.com is one of the popular choices for custom cables - it will cost you about $30 if you're careful which connectors you chose.
