    Best option to integrate JB3 and sub for computer audio--Nuforce Icon?

    I'm still not sure I will need the active crossover. Since I won't be pushing the JB3's TOO hard in a small room close near field setting, just letting them roll off may be fine. since the amp I'm getting has a buffered sub output, I don't really need to split the line level out coming from my...

    Whats the general concensus on Tripath/T-Amps? All hype or good value?

    Quote: Originally Posted by mrarroyo If you visit Audiogon you will find various Red Wine Audio Signature amps from $1,000 to about $1,500. Good point, as I was just quoting the list price from Red Wine web site. Still, that is a pretty pricey amp, even used. I know they have a...

    Best option to integrate JB3 and sub for computer audio--Nuforce Icon?

    Quote: Originally Posted by xuxu I have an Icon and I don't see a sub out. It has stereo miniplug line-level out for sending signal to an external amp though. Since you have a decent sound card, why not use its subwoofer output? This appears to be the only option. I contacted...

    Quote: Originally Posted by Armaegis I recently searched for something similar and found the Icon was the only thing that fit that niche. There are a couple other miniature amps (Firestone Big Joe, Travagan Red or Green), but neither has a line for sub out. Me, I opted for the...

    I have an IRiver H320 that I'd like to strap a portable amp to in order to take advantage of the line-out. There are SOOOO many amp candidates, I thought one way to narrow down the choices was to look for something with about the same length and width to make it easier to sandwich them together...

    First headphone amp advice

    This is my first forum post and my first foray into separate components. To keep this short, my question is whether a used Headroom Supreme is a good starting point amp compared to the current generation of portable amps. I'm negotiating for one now and should end up in the $125-$150 delivered...
