    This amp is HUGE bang for the buck (I got it on sale)!
    Today and yesterday I have been using it with my HD58X. Both work well and it is another nice combo.

    What is the power difference between this and the original?

    So, what has happened over the past three weeks?

    The tough part about buying $100.00, $200.00 and even $300.00 electronic items is that they are pretty much disposable. Unless you're a Mr. Fix-it, spending $100.00 to $200.00 repairing these items at a third party doesn't really make any sense. I wouldn't. We all love the cheap stuff, but there is a reason it is cheap.:relaxed:

    I would spend if it was with the original manufacturer, but that's about it.

    I have returned them to Avenson Audio for repairs again, they are covering cost this time. Hopefully the gain switch will be an easy fix. The amp is stellar when working properly but....I hope this is the last repair it has to endure

    Did you pay the shipping back?

    Good luck! I am liking it more every time I use it.

    Looks like the original Liquid Carbon was 1.5w at 50ohm
    LCX is 2.8w at 50ohms

    Avenson is covering all cost for this second repair trip.

    I am glad you are liking the LCX every time you have the pleasure of using it. I hope to have the same experience again soon.

    Thanks. I think it was a fluke issue after the first repairs. I am sure it will be great after this repair. I am glad that you are enjoying yours.

    LCX + D10 sounds pretty nice.

    I love it with my SMSL SU-8.

    Anybody else getting on that 789 train? I think they only sold about 1K on the first 30- day run, which I am guessing is WAY less than they thought. Then they post another 30 day run. In 12 days their count has gone from 5.1K to 5.2K sold. In a VERY best case scenario they sold up to 199 pieces on this run so far.
    Strange as there were a few thousand people, as I recall, asking for it. People are so full of BS.:unamused:

    I love my LCX, but I must admit that I am curious. I would really like to do a side by side. I just sold a speaker dock, a 2.1 sound system and a Topping amp. But then I bought a set of Shure 1540 :heart_eyes:. Maybe if I sell my FiiO A5 and Loxjie P20 before the run is over...:grin:

    I got in the last drop for the 789, the one expected to ship November 15, so between that and the LCX and a powerful Chinese budget amp I have incoming from a fellow Head-Fi'er, I really should be covered. I've never paid $400 for an amp before because I'm a cheap a** so I'm probably not going to get a second 789, although I did briefly have two LCX's... :sweat_smile: And right now I'm listening to my HE-560 v1 out of the oft-ridiculed HiFiMAN EF100 hybrid tube amp. I think I have enough amps.... (Project Polaris is really good, too, and the Loxjie P20 ain't half bad, either...)

    I hear you on the cost thing. The 789 would cost me $650.00, landed in Canada. That is a LOT of money to spend and then go "well, it sounds a little cleaner than the LCX".
