Good info. I just need to decide if it'd play nicely with my LZ A4s, as it would likely sound grand with my fidelio x2s, from what you say...
no way would i use alo as an amp for iems unless they are really hard to drive

but with headphones alo mk3 is top of the line with the best ever bass boost tunes that has been ever created on headfi, unlike all the other gimmick bass boosters in other amps. It has a huge sound stage with amazing sound quality signature. This is the only portable amp I tried that makes planar headphones sound as if driven from a desktop amp

i really wish there will be a new rx mk amp update with the same bass boost implementation coming as this is the best alo portable amp with that gorgeous bass boost, I just can not know why ALO moved that bass boost from their new amps

Has any portable amp surpassed mk3-b+ ability to push HifiMan He-6? I got some new 12-conductor cables and combined them with my LG V20 phone, mk3, and HE-6's...and it worked!!!

It only works well with Neutron Player and HD files that are 'normalized'. I'll be bringing this setup to work instead of my IEM's.

CD quality sounds awful.
YouTube produces a nasty sibilance and lacks gain.

I have a question, will the Koss KSC75 hiss with the Rx MK III-B version?

i have my sony ier z1r and have both the sp2000 and alo rx mk3, and connecting the sp2000 to alo mk3 took the sony ier z1r to a total different level

such a shame the alo mk3 is not being made any more or getting updated, this leads me to ask if there is anything better than mk3 portable amp out there?

I haven't tried the Rx MK3 but I have had a number of other Alo amps, which are great. For me the only portable I've tried which tops them is the Vorzuge Vorzamp Duo. Incredible bass and treble switches, compact, and powerful enough to drive hungry cans. I use it every day stacked with my A&K ct10.
