    with 6watts at 32ohms in balanced output to my m565 cans using a balanced cable over there continuous max listed of 4 watts would i blow them out or would they be ok ,an how load could i expect the output at 6watts to get in low gain before 12:00 on the volume dail ?

    I would think you would blow out your ears long before you would damage the headphones. Keep in mind that those ratings are at max volume in the highest gain.

    Monoprice already shipped mine out today and is arriving tomorrow!
    That sure beats Massdrop’s system of reserving a shipping date 3+ months in the future.... Big plus one already for 887.

    So you're OK with depriving yourself of the Drop.com experience:
    1. Give them your money
    2. Wait for the original ETA
    3. See Monprice product ships right away
    4. Find out Drop closed and re-opened the initial drop. So now you can't cancel
    5. Experience at least one manufacturing delay
    6. 5 months later, your package arrives

    Yea I already went through all that with the second wave of the 789, I’m good.
  9. forge457
    thanks for that info i didnt know that tidbit about gain

    Is there anyone who can tell me when it will be available on Amazon?

    Mine arrived today.
    Its 0.7" shorter than the 789, has bigger feet. And sounds about the same.

  12. bryceu
    Sounds about right. I think it’s a tad wider as well which will help it look better stacked with my RME. Mines at home but I’m at work till 7pm. Pretty fast shipping from Monoprice ..

    I wonder why Monoprice decided not to include a Dac in the Monolith THX 887?
  14. bryceu
    Likely because they wanted to directly compete with the 789 from Massdrop.
    They might opt to add a DAC/AMP combo unit with THX AAA in the future, but they may already have one if I remember correctly.
