    It plays really well with the auteur. I am using that as one of the main headphones in my review, so you can count on my observations applying there.

    @Hansotek Dave - great flood of very very well written reviews! (as always... :wink:)

    I heard a prototype of the Liquid Spark at an event at The Source AV a while back and I really liked it. I especially remember the punchy bass for such a small amp. I didn't need a portable amp at that time so I mentally shelved it, but now that it's morphed into a small desktop amp I'll probably buy one. I remember that the prototype sounded really good with the MrSpeakers Aeon Flow Closed.

    Great review. How's the pairing with your Senn HD600?

    If they play well together what a great sounding starter combo the Spark and 6XX could be...
  7. Zachik
    Yeah - I do not need yet another amp, but for $99 - I will get it for sure!
    This is the ideal price point for "I do not need it, but will buy it anyhow" :wink:

    I’m 100% in the same camp, lol!

    Really, really good with 300 ohm headphones like the Sennheiser and the ZMF dynamics. I agree, that is an awesome starter combo.
  10. Hansotek
    Yeah, the AEON and Cascade both work very well with it. Combined with the chilled out mids, punchy bass and small size, I loved it for a small desktop amp at work. Doesn’t get in the way. Perfect sound for background tunes. Great synergy with my favorite office headphones.

    Always a good sign when an amp can pair well with both hard-to-drive planars and high impedance cans. At least for those of us who want to keep our amp collections to a minimum.

    I'll be interested to compare the Spark with the amp section of the iDSD Micro BL (which has an analog input...)

    I have a Liquid Spark in house now for review. This is a completely new unit so it's not burned in at all. That means no comments for a while.

    I'll also give it a go with a linear power supply (which nobody should even be considering for a $99 amp, but I have one that'll work so I have to try it!).

    Very interested in more reviews of this little guy. Have been looking off and on for something with this combination of size and power to use at the office.

    What dac would be recommended for something like this?
  15. Hansotek
    Whatever you want. I used it with a pretty wide variety of DACs: iFi xDSD & iDSD Black Label, Shanling M0, Fiio X5 III, Hugo 2, Yggy... and I guess the AK380, if you count the prototype stage.
