    Gilmore Lite Amp Owners Unite!

    The mk2 doesn't sound as warm as my Asgard 2 sitting in my closet right now, but its warmer then my SMSL SP200 which doesn't sound bright to me just very clear and controlled with a LOT more power on tap. The thing with reading people opinions in the community is you will get wildly different...

    Gilmore Lite Amp Owners Unite!

    To my ears the SMSL SP200 sounds clearer and with better bass then the mk2 but that might just be because it has more power, or placebo. Since the mk2 is now my work amp I don't know if I am gonna bother with the power supply. I never got the original Gilmore Lite DPS back in 2004 either. Also...

    Gilmore Lite Amp Owners Unite!

    The Gilmore Lite mk2 was finally measured on ASR. Measured like I thought, not at the peak of todays best amps but not horrible. Listening to mine now on my work from home laptop. I got the SMSL SP200 for my Arya and LCD2 since it gives out more power. I am curious how the measurements would...

    [FiiO M3K] Probably the Most Cost-Effective Hi-Res Music Player, Discrete HiFi DAC Chip, Supports up to 384K/32B

    I just picked one of these up for biking since my old 2006 iPod is pretty much dead at this point. Question, anyone who has put Rockbox on it, the latest 1.4.3 version. How is the scrolling? I have never used Rockbox in my life. The only thing i dislike about this player is how long it takes to...

    I went from Asgard 2 to mk2 and it was a nice step up. I wish I still had the original Gilmore Lite to compare.

    Oh I realize measurements are not the end all, its just fun to see things measured. I see you mention the Modi Multibit. I found it was holding back the mk2 and I greatly prefer the Grace Designs SDAC and Topping D30 over it. Both of those DACs give the mk2 much greater 3d spacing especially in...

    That look cool, any plans on sending a GL mk2 / GSX to Amir to have it measured? Love to see how it compares to the other amps on his list

    Topping D30 DSD DAC XMOS/CS4398

    Sadly I am getting nasty clicks and pops and distorted audio when under very high CPU/GPU load on the D30 So before someone tells me my computer sucks I have used the following DACs with this exact PC and NONE of them have this issue besides the Topping D30: Dragonfly 1.2 Modi Multibit Grace...

    It came down between the Liquid Platinum and the mk2 for me when I decided to upgrade. I had a feeling the mk2 would be a bit higher quality based off of my experience with the original Gilmore Lite back in the day. I'm glad I went with it.

    I like my Grace Designs SDAC. Very cheap and it works well.

    Massdrop x Grace Design SDAC - a budget beast

    Yes I have posted about it on another section and another audio forum but not much here at headfi. To my ears the SDAC sounds better. More holographic/3d. The fact that it is less then half the price is nice too. I need to box up and sell my Modi Multibit but I haven't taken the time to do it yet.

    Sennheiser x Massdrop HD6XX Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

      For what its worth I ordered the Grado GR60e and AKG 7XX on Mass Drop and it was smooth sailing all the way. Yes, the wait sucks. However besides that I have zero complaints.

    Sennheiser x Massdrop HD6XX Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Ugh! I had no idea these existed till today so I missed the drop :(   Wearing the 650s right now but these are a great backup pair for the price.
