    Topping A30 Headphone Amplifier

    I haven't heard the D50. Listened to the D30 at a friends. It was OK by itself. Didn't like the looks of it. For me, D50 looks a lot better. Also, the fact that it has its own volume control, can be driven from even a power bank, and its size and looks works in its favour. It stacks well and...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    I got my 4xx in good shape. No manufacturing defect or shipping damage. No rattling drivers or any such issues. The base has impact but really clean and fast. I am loving it. The highs have energy, but not harsh at all. I will not peg it as a warm headphones. It does have issues if the...

    Schiit Yggdrasil V2 upgrade Technical Measurements

    Guess it was not trolling. Also, I should say in advance that I was under the assumption that this Yggdrasil was a tube amp. Now, by high temperature, I meant 60° to 80° C or so depending on commercial or industrial grade equipment. I should also make it clear that industrial testing means...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    Lucky you. I had to pay nearly 50% extra as duty because of the stupistup of our customs department. I was expecting 30% or less, which is the actual rate, but they decided to screw me for the fun of it?

    Schiit Yggdrasil V2 upgrade Technical Measurements

    You do know that industrial testing often takes units to temperatures higher than this, right. Or, as someone said, is this some kind of trolling?

    Arcam rHead Class-A Analogue Headphone Amplifier

    I read it first on head-fi reviews. Then in another review, a French one. It may have been a mashup of head-fi and innerfidelity reviews. Though I hear the word smooth in many reviews, these reviews used the word smothed-over. Also atleast 3 reviews mentioned lower details. I wasn't sure if that...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    Hi, I am getting a new 4XX in a few days and am looking for an amp when I am away from home. I am considering Magni 3 and O2 (for their size). Does anyone here has experience with these combos? Any opinion would be helpful. I am also considering Arcam rHead and JDS Element. Will these perform...

    iFi Audio nano iDSD Black Label (TOUR details - PAGE 12 / TOUR participants - page 26 post #386)

    Micro is way more powerful than Nano. Arount 10x output power. 3x the cost. And so many features that it will put a swiss army knife to shame.

    XDuoo XD-05 Portable Dac/Amp Introduction - Impressions

    They are called 3M Dual Lock. I had used them as mounts for my DAP before. I stuck them all over the place, like bed stand, mobile case, table, amp, etc., so that l could 'mount' my DAP and it won't slip and fall.

    Topping D50

    Not really. Only that my current DAC sometimes have issues suppressing USB noises.

    Topping D50

    So, is there any point in buying it if you already have a decent DAC?

    Amplifier power requirement

    Nice article. But it deviates from the topic here. I wanted to know what volume levels are needed when listening to different types of music, so that I can calculate the output power required, which can help me with selecting an appropriate (portable) headphone amplifier. Recently I read some...

    Topping D50

    How does D50 compare to Topping's own NX4 DSD? Both has the same ESS chip, one in stereo mode and D50 in dual-mono mode. Does it sound different, the implementation probably being different?
