    beta22 phase1

    How well would it work to try and build an internal compartment in your box itself and then put the trafo and PSU in that separate compartment? A couple of aluminum plates should be enough to separate the trafo and PSU from the rest of the amp. A bit similar to this for example...

    Head-Direct EF1 or Audio-gd C2C or ...?

    Quote: Originally Posted by K3cT Wow, you're still unsure after 1 year and 3 months? I've heard the EF1 and though I haven't heard the C2C, my vote would go for the latter due to its flexibility. I doubt the EF1 will have the juice to drive your HD580 and HD600. Generally...

    ~$200 budget, need suggestions for unamped, no IEM, open headphones for gaming and rock music

    How about a Audio Technica AD700 for gaming and a Grado SR80i for your rock needs. Just an idea though, not necessarily a recommendation. Just do a search on both of them to get an idea of what they're like.

    Review of Audio-GD DAC-19MK3

    What version of the DAC-19 did you buy? I think we need to start a new thread for both the new DAC-19 and the C-2 amp and leave this thread and the C-2C thread for those specific products. Might be less confusing and would make this and the C-2C thread a better place for owners of those...

    RMAA Test results for Audio-gd DAC-19MK3 and Reference 1

    Isn't this the result of what milosz says? You want (/need) to filter all frequencies above the 20 kHz out of your resulting signal as they mess with your amp. To do that you need a very good analog filter (as Kingwa said). That low-pass filter needs to let all frequencies below the 20kHz to go...
