    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    All you need are good old RCA cables to hook it to the Atom, the outs are able to run balanced or single ended. If you want to connect the Khadas to a balanced amp with XLR inputs, you need the special cables from Khadas.

    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    What does it matter if it runs properly, and measures as good as the newer chips in similar priced DACs? Plus, a newer chip would drive up cost for little or no gain in performance.

    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    Due to the AKM chip shortage JDS is using the ESS ES9018K2M chip in the Atom DAC+, and it measures great for a $109 unit, and will stack nicely with the Atom Amp. If I didn't already have too many DACs, I would pick one of these up to try out.

    Dan Clark told me on another forum that the Drop cans are very similar to the RT model.

    No need to, would just raise the price with little in return.

    Audeze LCD-1

    Got my LCD-1's back from Audeze today, working like new, not sure if new drivers or whole new set of cans. Let's hope they last longer than 2 months this time.

    Audeze LCD-3 Impressions Thread

    Pretty sure they change out both drivers, because Audeze seems to revise their drivers quite often, would suck to have 2 drivers badly mismatched.

    I was gonna ask where you got an SU-9 for $160, now I know, lol.

    Yeah, they lie about the psu because they secretly don't want the DAC to sound good, :rolling_eyes: .

    If they alter the sound much if any, I can't notice it. On the E30 I leave it on filter 1.

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    I guess that should fit the Amiron Home, too? Would like to preserve my T1.2 and Amiron Home cans as good as possible.

    Topping L30 - The new budget benchmark?

    Unlike what the review mentions, the L30 does not work with the P50 power supply, clearly says 15VAC, not DC. And the designer of the L30 does not recommend using anything but the PS that comes with it. Just a heads up in case anyone was wondering.

    These aren't too expensive, and work just fine for my set up. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KO8VY4O/ref=twister_B00NPAMDQ6?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&coliid=I3BHVDIZPDK2SP&colid=16DJO9XRI04YB

    Topping A90

    I got the A90 because I wanted the pre-amp option for my active speakers, otherwise I would still be using my Monoprice 887 or SMSL SP200, they are all pretty much equal, with the 887 just a little underwhelming compared to the other 2 with the HE-6se power wise.

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    I am saying in high power the RME will drive most headphones loud enough, you may prefer a tube amp for your Senns, but the RME will get my pair of HD650 to deafening levels, along with most of my headphones. Your sound or distortion flavor isn't factored into what I'm talking about.

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    But those types of headphones are the exception rather than the rule, the RME on high power mode can drive most cans pretty darn good.

    Topping A90

    Just got mine today, so far the best amp I have used with my HE-6se cans, better than iCan Pro, SP200, or the Monoprice THX amp. Got it running at 1 o'clock in high gain balanced being fed with my RME ADI-2 DAC, good bass, plenty loud for my tastes.

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Not sure what your budget is, but have you looked into the ATH-R70X? I like mine a lot, and am also a fan of the Nighthawks. Maybe read up on them a little, just a thought.

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Then stay away from most Beyers, to me they are very sharp in the treble, and could be very piercing . I own the Amiron Home and T1.2, and can tolerate them much better than the DT880, DT990, or the T90.

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    The most up to date version of the RME ADI-2 DAC FS has the AKM ak4493 DAC chip, which boosted measurements a little, and an updated remote. I own the ak4490 model I purchased a year or so ago, and it is awesome. I wouldn't waste the extra money on the Pro model, features you probably won't...

    Announcement: Shanling Q1 - Retro-Styled Portable Hi-Fi Music Player // Successfully Kickstarterted, in shops in March.

    It's looks nice, the rubber case fits nicely and gives extra grip to the unit, but is easily removed. It's bigger than I was expecting, even knowing the dimensions, but not a complaint. I have an M0 and love it, but it is so small that my broken down, stiff fingers and thumbs have trouble...
