little difficult to power it up I think, you have to tap the power button seven times!

And from the spec page:
Quote:

Other Features
Flashlight Mode: Turns on both LEDs to full brightness;
Dimming mode: Allows user to optionally dim the blue LED;


What is this for useless feature??
They also say nothing about the output power.


I guess this amp is not worth it's money

Actually just decided on the Headroom Micro Portable, i think it will be the best of both worlds for me. I travel with Denon 1001 and this afternoon found a shop that i was able to sample all the Senns, Beyer 880 Pro, D5000 and believe it or not my favorite set of cans so far and the last set of cans i will ever buy are the AKG 240 Studios. Going to use them at home. Very warm, natural, balanced cans to my hearing range anyway.

My XM3 has been good to me for the last two years. The stock opamp is a bit dull but once the AD8620 dropped in it transforms to a much better amp for its price. It might not be the best sounding ever, but at least the cost/performance is high IMO - that is the "practical" part for you.
