    Massdrop x THX AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier - Impressions Thread

    Yeah, that is correct. It depends on the headphones a lot.. I have Verum One's that are 8 Ohm headphones and Sennheiser HD650 that are 300 Ohm headphones, both i can use on all gain levels but the sound output will just be different for each. The 8 ohm will be louder on all gain levels compared...

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    The Surround signal is sent from the software driver when connected to a PC, thus you can only get Stereo from any other source such as TV or games console. You could connect the headphone via Bluetooth or headphones socket from the TV if you have these available.

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    I think that Legopart was pointing out that Speaker amps use a common negative terminal for both Left and Right channel so there is no reason to be wiring the cable as balanced. In other words, the negative connection eventually meet unless you are using mono-block amps where each channel would...

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    Have you tested with a multi-meter from the XLR end to the TRS end for continuity? check each pin from one end to the other. Also check that none of the connections are also connected to the other, so right isn't accidentally connecting to ground too. I can't see anything wrong with your...

    Massdrop x THX AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier - Impressions Thread

    I was thinking that maybe they just started again with the numbers after SKU "MDX-19090-2" so then Model numbers would start again at BA01, for example, but mine is from the April Drop and its the same details (SKU no. MDX-19090-2, Prod No. BF19 and AW Rev.A 03/2018) as yours except has a lower...

    FiiO K5 pro-Desktop DAC and Amplifier+ AK4493+XMOS XUF208+ 768K/32Bit and DSD decoding

    Certainly looking forward to this as a small, all in one DAC/AMP. Currently using seperates for my tv as I have some high ohm headphones i wanna cater for, but this seems to do it all in one box :)

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    Not to disrespect the cable that comes with the Verum One Headphones, but I thought I would make a Balanced one for it. Maybe a little Overkill for such Low Ohm Planars but I've been of the impression that thicker cables are better in most situations.

    4, 8 core TRS cables: Why?

    Sorry i maybe should have said that in an instance where its TRS to TRS connector then 3 wires is all you need. As i was trying to explain earlier, since headphones and speakers each require 2 connections each, 4 cables is most common as the total of used wires. The DJ Desk i have has RCA...

    SMSL M300 - Balanced AK4497 DAC

    Hard to say whether it will or wont, if you have it already then it shouldn't do any harm. If you are specifically looking for a DAC that will be improved by using the ifi Nano then you might have to wait a little longer or check Google as well. I have used mine on a SMSL Sap 9 Amplifier and...

    SMSL M300 - Balanced AK4497 DAC

    I apologise I saw it for £380 / £350 with offer on Amazon UK and assumed the US would be the same roughly in dollars. Amazon.com is selling them for $400 in "Used Like New" Link though.

    SMSL M300 - Balanced AK4497 DAC

    Maybe $359, but the M300 at the moment is $230, so i doubt it will be priced that "generously".. I doubt $500 is right too, as previously mentioned the Sabaj D5 is $350..
