  2. I know there is. Screwed it tight. Still came off.

    .. a tiny peace of wood maybe could help to tighten the fit before screwing.

    Hi guys! Quick question can I use my micca Origen g2 to feed the atom? I would buy the atom an a new dac, I am just waiting for the matching one from jds lab ( if they plan to make one) or a new dac made from Drop. If they don’t make one I will buy the toppings d30 ( for pc and ps4)

    I don’t see why not. Obv you’ll want to use the line out, rather than the headphone jack, to connect to the Atom.

    Thank you for your reply. Yes I would use the line out but it is a preamp out. Does it make a difference?

    Not really. I would just keep the pre at full volume, unless you’re using very sensitive headphones/IEMs.

    I have the Atom amp plus Khadas tone board dac, check. I have good headphones, check upload_2019-6-24_13-18-57.gif . ......And I am sitting in my kitchen and thinking what if.....I change the RCA cables. Jokes aside, do you think that different RCA cables will make the JDS labs Atom amp sound even better or I shouldn’t bother? My current choices are...Chord company C-line around $50-60 for 1 foot, Blue jeans 1 foot low capacitance cable made with Belden wire for $35 without shipping , or silver plated copper cables, such as Van Damme silver series or silver plated cables made by Amplifier surgery from military silver plated wire. I am afraid cables from moon audio or DH labs, or higher end Chord or Audioquest are out of my budget. So $50-60 is my reasonable limit for cables to complement the Atom amp. I guess if the cables are that good I could push my budget a little. If you have any opinions on the matter, please share.

  9. Get them because they look better if you'd like. But I don't hear any difference in RCA. I use the green audioquest. Whatever they're called. :wink:

    So I had a chance to demo one. Sounds nice on my setup. The build quality leaves something to be desired. Measurements are one thing, but I like the all around package. I still may pick up one of these used.

    Where can you purchase that case?

    That case came with no instructions and yours truly is a bit of an idiot.
    Does anyone know where the smaller metal plate with 3 holes should go to? How is it supposed to attach to anything? I'm puzzled :)
    There seems to be like 5 ways to put this puzzle together with all the screws and screw-feet-thingies but not many of those ways seem to align both the text on top and the screwholes in front and back correctly. Well, I did put it together somehow but not all of the parts went in, which is usually not a good sign :D

    On their website for the case there’s a downloads tab that has the instructions, but they seem to be in French. You should to be able to make out what to do with the pictures. Here’s the link if you don’t feel like looking for it https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/index.php?controller=attachment&id_attachment=1041
