iFi now do their own 4.4mm - 4.4mm interconnect. It's on DROP with the ZEN CAN Signature & ZEN DAC Signature listings. You know that at least it will be decent quality.

Yup, it's part of my order, $89 (though).

And for me, it won't ship until 11th Nov, along w/ the entire order.

because it’s $89, and more expensive must equal more good? The margins iFi and Drop have on these interconnects are absurd.

Of course you are free to think so, but there's a fair bit more to the final price than just two connectors and some wire in-between :)

Speaking of the product itself, please see this:

PowerDAC V2 does what you ask.

Interesting idea, and a good deal for HD6XX owners who don’t already have a means of EQ at their disposal.

It does seem fairly limited though with only the 6XX filter. Given that it’s an amp and doing it in the analog realm I suppose that makes sense, but a DAC/AMP or just a DAC that had downloadable filters for a variety of headphones would be an even more interesting product.

Doing it as a DAC or DAC/AMP would allow all of the EQ to be done in the digital realm, and it could be set up so that you could download individual headphone profiles via USB stick into the unit, so it could be good for the 6XX, Elex, Ether CX, etc, or even better non-Massdrop headphones as well. If something like that could be developed and at a price point below something like the RME ADI-2 DAC I could see it being very successful.

Neat little product, and can’t argue with that price. Being USB only is fairly limiting though, as if you’re using USB you’re probably using a computer as a source and you could just be using software EQ at that point.
