    FS: Massdrop THX AAA 789

    The price is pretty fair at $350. At $350, I'm in no rush to sell.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    If you like highs, it would explain why you think everything paired with the 1Z sounds good. https://www.0db.co.kr/xe/files/attach/images/179/538/091/45d7bff02206ba90f1593fa0c22535d1.png from: https://www.0db.co.kr/xe/index.php?mid=REVIEW_0DB&category=183&document_srl=91538

    Massdrop x THX AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier - Impressions Thread

    Just so I don't misunderstand. My DAC will send out a 2Vrms signal over its SE out through RCA. If I use this RCA to XLR cable, the amp will still only see 2Vrms through its Balanced input, correct? There's no voltage doubling that occurs?

    Massdrop x THX AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier - Impressions Thread

    You mean like the top illustration? https://www.mediacollege.com/audio/connection/xlr-rca-1.html Also, if using such a RCA -> XLR cable, normally, the balanced out is approx 2x the voltage relative to the SE out. In this case, the voltage is still the same 1x SE out since all we're doing is...

    MY bad, I got them mixed up. I actually did not know about the desktop version, let me take a look.

    Massdrop x THX AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier - Impressions Thread

    I'm not going to get into subjective differences of the two, but the only things I can comment on are the numbers that both product when measured. Whether one can audibly perceive the measured differences is another story, which I will not touch with a 10 foot pole...

    Massdrop x THX AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier - Impressions Thread

    If you don't need the OLED display and don't mind an open-air frame vs. a case, Khadas Tone Board + DIY case can be had for $92 USD? and measures better than my D50, though it has to be said, we are REALLY talking about INAUDIBLE differences here.

    Because the Monoprice doesn't measure nearly as well as the Massdrop THX. Same branding, woefully different execution.

    The Sub-$200 Portable Amps Shootout – 13 (+11) amps compared

    I'd also like to say, unless you're sure you like reference or neutral amps, getting an amp with slight sound colouring isn't the end of the world. In fact, you might actually like it. I personally like reference DAC and reference Amp, because that lets me worry about coloring the sound with...
