    ETHER 2: Impressions and Discussion

    I got it half price, it does add a lot of fun to my setup. The amp does not have a headphone jack, but would require rca to headphone cable connectors. Maybe if I work out mathematically, with the Dave on minimum volume to the amp to the headphone…. Would that be safe … Reason I’m going down...

    ETHER 2: Impressions and Discussion

    I’m lucky (stupid) enough to own an etude, currently using it with my speakers tho. My speakers are 94db efficient, had me wondering, how does that equate to a set of headphones in terms of voltage. I respect that turning the volume up incorrectly would destroy the headphones - so seems...

    I’m not sure if asr popularized toppings, but that seems to be one good thing about it. There’s a great space for a site to try to find the cheapest best audio out there so everyone can enjoy it.

    Isn’t it strange that it’s converted to 5v … makes no sense to me why higher v would impact things - not saying it doesn’t

    They all run fine on 12v batteries. Most batteries are 2amp. I have a 3amp. I noted Rob says the tt2 can deliver 5 amp from smps to headphones in the YouTube video at a show. So anything in those realms works.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I got a silver litz cable, used it for a long time, but then my device dropped and the connector bust. I took it to the local repair shop who used standard solder to put on a basic plug. After that, I found all the magic gone, it was basically unlistenable. I never thought I’d be this kind of...
