    Doesn't change sound quality, increases the Voltage. I have 2 units which ab tested at max voltage of the SE. No difference. For the HD600, I'd use balanced as it gets a little louder. I haven't tested a 300 Ohm to measure exactly how much but it would be at least 4dB.

    I've tested the BTR5 balanced out , 2.8V no clipping maxed out on 40hz and 1khz sine wave into 56 Ohm load. I use mine through 2.5mm into an Xcan. Balanced Ouput is 5.5V (Max BTR5 and + 10 in red zone on Xcan) Which I find stunning as it then is Diablo, Normal output level. To put into...

    not 5Amps. It's max current into 56 Ohms is 0.27mA but will not sustain that for any usable time. Will drop down to a sustained 0.136mA into 56 Ohms. Balanced clips earlier. 6.3mm on my unit will reach and hold 0.153mA into 56 Ohms. The Diablo is an excellent portable amplifier and will drive...

    iFi audio iDSD Diablo - A portable reference done our way!

    Been using the Diablo for a few months, feel that I have tested this device enough to have a concrete opinion on it. Ifi have every reason to be proud of this device. That they stuck with Burr Brown and learnt that chip like nobody else, is what the Diablo is the culmination of. In engineering...

    It depends on your preference. The big cup HFM have a different approach to treble and have pretty tall soundstages with cool spatial. If you are treble sensitive the Arya and SE will probably be too intense. The Arya also has more grain with certain vocals compared to the HE6SE. The HE6SE...

    beyerdynamic does a good quality and reasonably priced cable.

    If they're efficient headphones I'd go Black Label or Signature ( Black Label offers analog input which the Signature doesn't ) If it's less efficient or if you plan on using a balanced amplifier, Diablo.

    I use the BC3 connected via toslink/spdf to diablo. ldac about 11 hours battery life. Works perfect. No dropout issues.

    Oriolus Traillii Electrostatic Hybrid IEM discussion thread

    Whenever I audition headphones or iems. The store I go to knows, not to tell me the price. Let me know when I decide on what I like. Ended with interesting choices and sometimes alot cheaper or much more expensive than expected.

    The Ananda has textured sub bass without eq, it doesn't slam. If you can EQ, they will respond well.
