    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    All you need are good old RCA cables to hook it to the Atom, the outs are able to run balanced or single ended. If you want to connect the Khadas to a balanced amp with XLR inputs, you need the special cables from Khadas.

    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    What does it matter if it runs properly, and measures as good as the newer chips in similar priced DACs? Plus, a newer chip would drive up cost for little or no gain in performance.

    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    Due to the AKM chip shortage JDS is using the ESS ES9018K2M chip in the Atom DAC+, and it measures great for a $109 unit, and will stack nicely with the Atom Amp. If I didn't already have too many DACs, I would pick one of these up to try out.

    Drop + Dan Clark Audio AEON Open X - Impressions Thread

    Dan Clark told me on another forum that the Drop cans are very similar to the RT model.

    No need to, would just raise the price with little in return.

    Audeze LCD-1

    Got my LCD-1's back from Audeze today, working like new, not sure if new drivers or whole new set of cans. Let's hope they last longer than 2 months this time.

    Audeze LCD-3 Impressions Thread

    Pretty sure they change out both drivers, because Audeze seems to revise their drivers quite often, would suck to have 2 drivers badly mismatched.

    Topping A90

    I was gonna ask where you got an SU-9 for $160, now I know, lol.

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    Yeah, they lie about the psu because they secretly don't want the DAC to sound good, :rolling_eyes: .

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    If they alter the sound much if any, I can't notice it. On the E30 I leave it on filter 1.

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    I guess that should fit the Amiron Home, too? Would like to preserve my T1.2 and Amiron Home cans as good as possible.

    Topping L30 - The new budget benchmark?

    Unlike what the review mentions, the L30 does not work with the P50 power supply, clearly says 15VAC, not DC. And the designer of the L30 does not recommend using anything but the PS that comes with it. Just a heads up in case anyone was wondering.

    Topping D90

    No problems here, works great.

    These aren't too expensive, and work just fine for my set up.

    Topping A90

    I got the A90 because I wanted the pre-amp option for my active speakers, otherwise I would still be using my Monoprice 887 or SMSL SP200, they are all pretty much equal, with the 887 just a little underwhelming compared to the other 2 with the HE-6se power wise.
