A week or two ago I sent an email with a question about which volume control I would order, considering I will use it as a preamp as well. I also never heard anything. I'll be watching how they treat you before placing my order
can't find this email -- please post your question here. We just got done shipping a large batch of GS-X mini orders and are now working to finish the orders that came in during that time, by the end of this week

No problem all is good. Just wanted to know if I am using it equally for preamp and head amp which volume control would you recommend. Since I posted I think someone said only buy the stepped attenuator if primarily using extremely sensitive IEM's which wouldn't be the case for me. Thanks

A quick question here, can I use both RCA and XLR output on GS-X mini in preamp mode to two different amp simultaneously?
Will this damage the gs-x mini or the amp?

Has anyone here tried thicker power cables (14awg or lower) on their Mini and noticed any improvement?
I went from stock cable to pangea 14awg cable and to my knowledge, it does sound a little more clearer but it can also be placebo

The GS-X mini sound quality is sensitive to power cables. I have not tried “thick” power cables and my favourite is the Morrow Audio MAP-4: very clear and dimensional sound. Note: the MAP-4 is plugged into a Furman Elite-15i power conditioner.

FYI, everything worked out.

I use audioart's eCryo cables on all my gear and I did notice a blacker background, unfortunately. I would certainly make that the last thing to upgrade.

I recently bought a 14awg Pangea and also a 10awg WAudio cable. I did notice sound improvement (both sound the same) but I'm in a bit of disbelief that a power cable would make a difference.

@Noobzilla

You can also try to add a Furman Power Conditioner and hook all your audio equipment to that. For me, that gave me the biggest clarity in the sound.

Do you mean using the Furman Power Conditioner instead of the pangea cable? Or having both in the system? Very interested in squeezing more performance out of the mini, as well as my other equipment.
