    A little confused over Amp/Dac combos.

    I'm a little confused over a purchase I've made and am looking for someone to explain it to me. Bear with me on this, over the years I've owned many different Iems, daps and portable Amps but never a DAC or DAC/amp combo. In the last couple of weeks I've bought a Sony PHA-2 amp/dac. I bought it...

    Discussion of a niche 'PURE-Transport' DAP (to serve digital streams to a seperate DAC-Amp)

    As per title, there has been some discussion, recently (e.g. in the AK240 and Chord Hugo threads) that a niche exists, which has yet to be filled, for a 'DAP' that omits any DAC or Amp within it's casework, but which would serve purely as a *portable* (the slimmer the better) transport for a...

    Measuring output voltage of the Sony ZX1

    So, I'm having some issues. I want to measure the output voltage of the ZX1 so that I can get its output impedance. Problem is, I can't get my old (admittedly cheapo) multimeter, or the new fancy one that I got when I was having trouble, to measure any output voltage at all from the Sony.   ...
