    I know a person who is a native chinese speaker and can translate for me so chinese sites and sellers that ship for bank transfers are o.k.

    My mothers going to mainland china(also hk) so I thought I'd stock up since it's cheap to buy some things over yonder. Do you guys know a good speaker/headphone amp? I'll buy a ldmicro+ and know I'm looking for a speaker amp since I'm still not sure If I should go headphones all the way.

    As for dac, I'll be having my mandatory macbook pro this august(school policy) and I need a dac to use it with whatever output I'll use.

    Thanks a bunch.

    p.s. do you know how much is a cute beyond there? maybe I'll get a cute beyond instead of the micro+

    OR should I jsut buy a zhaolu?

    but please advise me into a dac

    I have the same problem. I am undecided between a Zhaolu and Lite Dac-AH.

    how's the lite cd 15 as a dac? that would solve many problems and isn't that badly priced given that its a good cd player that .

    I think me is getting a zhaolu upgraded with caps and amp, should stack well with my studio apt [​IMG] and It looks like my macbook pro will be my audio out for just a lil while


    Now I'm down to your problem, lite dac-ah and modifications or zhaolu and equalisation.

    Firestone is Taiwanese, so it might be a little expensive for shipping from Taiwan -> China.

    Are you refering to the THA 336? I saw this on ebay..looks like it might be pretty good.

    Is there any where to get more info on Darkvoice? N/M I searched and fond a few threads! lol

    DAC-AH and mods or zhaolu?

    I want something more musical and fun, toe tapping basically.

    On a chineese taobao auction site the darkvoice is 160.00 US to buy it outright.If you need any volage adjustments better to order in advance of your arrival.
    I have the darkvoice and am in the process of getting a zhaolu dac.But right now I am running it off a echo indigo dj and it sounds real good.

    I talked with one of the retailers, he will see if he can find me a 110v one. normally 220v would be the correct one for Turkey, but in a month I'll be moving to chicago

    looks like I'm going to be a proud owner of a darkvoice [​IMG] and a lite dac ah I Think but not sure about the dac-ah we'll see.

    I strongly recommend you the YULONG CRYSTAL DAC, frankly speaking, ZhaoLu is not worth to buy. the amp I recommend WXPH20 - a special amp for K1000 and 240DF, and SXT-2, it can drive most headphones perfectly except K1000.

    what about darkvoice? as in, why not?. I've checked yulong but It was expensive,
