    Hi, i've talk with Rob Watts and he suggested to me to try taking the Chord out of DAC mode before plugging in the HP and see if that fixes the issue. Now all work fine the headphone output level is changed. Now i have more power but with volume level lower and no distorsion. (before +12H now -5H)

    Super great info thanks for the feed back

    Sure thing. I looked at your profile and with your musical preferences, I think you will really like TT2. I’m not even contemplating mScaler for some time. Everything is really enjoyable and the music flows so easily.

    1550932719508266061080.jpg Those who just got their units is this an optical illusion or is the 3.5mm plug deeper?

    Out of town have TT2 will travel. Pictures online mainly of silver and it doesn't look that deep...?

    It does seem deeper. Probably to accommodate the difference in size of plugs, while they likely do line up on the PCB. It is a nice feature that the channel is there for angled 3.5 plug configuration.

    Is Tel the dude who is in the videos ?

    Sorry I couldn’t help it, blame only fools and horses.

    Mmm, maybe that was the delay?

    I had problems with that port, I plugged in a L shaped 3.5mm plug and getting it out was a nightmare.

    Also, 3.5mm adapters, if you use one and then pull the cable and the cable comes out of the adapter, but leaving the adapter stuck inside the 3.5mm port, have fun trying to get that out.

    I was looking at the original TT, you would of thought that Chord would of realised their mistake and amended it for TT2. I have no idea who designed the case and the 3.5mm port, but they need a kick in the nuts for making it back assward.

    It’s only good for straight Jacks, but in this day and age, it’s bad to presume that Jack is straight, for all we know, he could be Bi, Gay or a Tranny ?

    Listening to Roger Waters “Pro’s and Con’s of Hitch Hiking”.

    PC - MScaler 1 million taps - Wave Stream cables - TT2 - HD800S.

    Also been trying iBasso iT01S, my new iem’s and, I have also been trying another pair, my newish TFZ King Pro on the MScaler and TT2 combo.

    I use a Tripp Lite lifetime warranty, 3.5mm female to male 2 metre extension. I plug my iem’s into the extension and the extension in to TT2’s 3.5mm, at night time even at -68 it’s still loud for that time, so if anyone is using iem’s, make sure your volume is set to a minimum of -50 with hi gain enabled.

    I’m using this one for HE-6 with a 4-bin balanced termination with great success:
    Amberlamps has your stance changed on Low-G and High-G for the 800S?

    I’ll have to look at mine. I haven’t used the 3.5mm plug yet. It does look deep in your picture. Are you having trouble getting the plug inserted?

    High Gain is what I have the HD800S on, some songs you can clearly hear the difference it makes, other track not so much but I and a couple others have come to the conclusion that High Gain is the best mode for our exact same setup.

    As for iem’s, if I could of been bothered, I would of changed to low gain, but that means getting up and walking the 2 metres to TT2, so I could chamge it.

    Anyone who wants to use iem’s, if in High Gain mode, double check that the volume is ateast -50 or higher before plugging your iems into your ears. I would suggest -60, as the power that comes out of TT2 is nuts, especially with the mscaler attached, I think it goes upto +22 if I recall, but the MScaler has to be connected to get that high.

    The only thing that would make me change back to lo gain now is iem’s, as those on high gain, it’s scary how low the volume is - wise and the actual volume in your ears is still decent.

    I would rather have it set at Low gain, as Rob told me a good setting for Lo gain that would not kill my hearing.

    Actually no, I'm just admiring every angle and noticed it looked different in person than all the photos online.
