    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...

    The Verum One is an 8 (Eight) Ohm Headphone. Works fine on my THX 789 but, as mentioned, its not advised to use such headphones.

    Massdrop x THX AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier - Impressions Thread

    The way I think of Gain is its mostly just a multiplier of power for increasing the voltage sent to the Headphones, more power = more volume, but headphones act differently thus sound differently having been sent the extra power. A lack of power usually reduces the bass response, some headphones...

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    I'm sure you've done it the better way :) The alternative would only be to connect the 2 and 4 pins together in the XLR plug so that you can run one negative cable to the amp where you can split it again between the channel negative connections. This is just going on the assumption that it is a...

    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...

    1MORE H1707 Triple-Driver Over Ear

    I bought the ES100 a few days back, Initial listening last night convinces me that i won't notice much, if any, difference between the balanced out of my Fiio M9 vs the balanced out of ES100 (with Bluetooth connection to the M9 (LDAC)). Both go far louder then I ever need them to be and Sound...

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    I was going to say that same thing, but thought i might be cast out from the Audiophile club for not using like 9N Cryo Silver Plated Copper wire.. I use any cheap bit of solid core i can find for this too.

    DIY balanced cables

    Separate Positive and Negative cables and connection points.. I think though that this kind of thread would be better in the Cables Section..

    I use mine daily with my Fiio M9, High Gain around 60 Volume (out of 120) via 2.5mm Balanced cable. I have tried them with Silicone Tips and i wasn't a fan of the lack of bass so i wanted to stick to foam. I used the Comply foams that came with them for a few weeks but they crumbled away after a...

    Schiit Asgard 3 - Impressions Thread

    Not to add any fuel to this fire, but if you try and buy from the EU site, there is no option for United Kingdom, Britain or Great Britain in the Address list. Since the UK has its own site and UK Based Supplier (Electromod), I believe its not possible to purchase from the EU site for UK...

    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 Questions and Comments Thread

    I'm assuming that this is a 3.5mm to Digital Coax cable, as in you wish to connect it to the Yellow RCA looking connector on the Hugo 1. If so then i think that this is the pins that need to connect. Taken from the following item on Amazon Website...

    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...
