Headphone Amp Inventory

CAYIN C5 (OPAMPs upgrade....ADA4637-1BRZ).....excellent budget level portable amp. Organic, wide 3D presentation..... pairs excellently with my modded T20RP's.

***SOLD*** LIGHT HARMONIC GO1000 - transparent and dynamic, but lacking soul.

***SOLD*** TEMPLE AUDIO BANTAM GOLD Speaker Amp - 50 watts into 8 ohms/6-8 watts of underused headroom into 50/60 ohms

*** Work in Progress *** Looking for the TDA1541A sound from an obscure chip....

ASUS ZENFONE 4 + UAPP

MACBOOK AIR with AUDIRVANA + 2.1.x
Direct Mode and Integer Mode 1


***TRADED*** BERESFORD BUSHMASTER MKII DAC/AMP - Very natural sounding/organic 3D DAC. Headphone out only good for dynamic cans in my experience.....not enough power for planars. A real hidden gem in the low-end pricing. May pick it up again. I guess this is as close to organic/natural as Wolfson ever got with the overlooked/obscure Wolfson WM8524 DAC chip. Popping/noise issues on anything above 16/44 on some hardware/software combos though....
