    PS1000e/PS1000 owners: What AMP/DAC are you using?

    I am trying to find out what is the best combo with the PS1000e. If i'll find out that a few people are really enjoying the same AMP/DAC i may get it. I can't audition it so i'll have to rely on opinions. Convince me! Ready? Shoot! :)

Now i understand that one headphone can start sending a signal to the other headphone just like a microphone. Is it a bad Y splitter (I think probably it is) But can it cause...

    Was the research process of the PS1000 really 50 years?!

    Grado claims so. I know you can't know for sure but is this possible in the headphone industry to research for 50 whole years? If it's true i would be really happy since i am getting them now :)

    DAP specs showing only power output and not voltage-With what impedance??

    The specs shows output of 2 x 2.4 mW. What does the first 2 mean? It has only one output and no gain settings, Only volume. And how can i know how much wattage i'll get with certain headphones with certain impedance? I know how to calculate this only when they give the voltage, Not the...

    What impedance affects damping factor?

    Do the dac's input and output impedance and cables and the amp's input impedance and cables have an impact on the headphones damping factor? I know at least the amp's output impedance and the headphone cable have an affect on the headphones damping factor.. Thanks!

    Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 as an headphone amp?

    I will use the DX90 as a dac. How good is the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2's headphone amp? Will i benefit from a much more expensive amp when using low impedance loads? And what about with high impedance cans? And should i use the dx90 or Focusrite Scarlett 2i2  as a dac?

    A question about speaker impedance

    1) If i look at specs of a two speaker system and it says the impedance is 8ohm-Does it mean that i need to divide it by 2 because i am running two speakers, Or the two speakers together are 8ohm? 2) The amp specs:  Power Output 80W/channel, 8Ω Does it mean that the maximum impedance...

    Confused with impedance and sensitivity

    I understand that if the sensitivity of headphones are 100dB, It means that from every 1 mW from the source it produces 100dB (Actually i am not sure if it means it is producing 100dB..). Impedance demermines the electrical power required by the headphones. Now of course the PS1000e (32ohm)...
