    What is the point of having different impedances and different gain settings at the same time?

    it's worked out great for me so far, since I have (for example) Grado Rs1. It is low impedance, but needs a good deal of power to sound it's best. They are there for you to set whatever setting best suits your headphone/iem.

    ...but both settings do the exact same thing in practice (manipulation of output voltage), just with different methodologies. I just don't see the purpose of having both at the same time, and I was wondering if you knew something that the first method does that the second method does not.

    ^ I copied and pasted this from the CEntrance Hifi-M8 product page:  
    Analog Specs

      Freq. Response

    20 Hz...50 kHz (flat EQ circuit)

      S/N Ratio

    113 dB (A-weighted)


    0.002 % (mid gain position)


    -103 dB (at 1kHz)

      Output Impedance

    1, 2, 11 Ohm, selectable

      Output Power

    1.4 W (max), 1 W (typical)


    16...600 Ohm

      Output voltage

    -2 dBV (nominal, max gain) use with less-sensitive over-the head headphones

        -10 dBV (nominal, mid gain) use for connecting to line-level consumer audio equipment

        -22 dBV (nominal, min gain) use with ultra-sensitive IEM headphones

    Sorry, I'm not a very technical guy when it comes to these things. Hope this helps!

    Nothing new except my DIY LOD (1st ever diy cable), let's call it Super LOD. [​IMG]

    I am curious how do you use your ipod with that cover?
  6. DMinor

    The amp wallet is very practical for carrying the gear also for operating ipod. It also protects gears. I hate those straps.

    Call it the "Minor Victory"

    I would feel annoyed everytime that I have to take the ipod out to change track,because moving the trackpad through that plastic screen is a pain.
  9. DMinor
    haha like that. Honestly diy is fun and now I know how those guys rip off head-fi'ers by selling a LOD for 200 bucks.
    NO no no you have to try it. For the ipod video it's like a charm. For the ipod classic my 1st amp wallet had trouble but my 2nd one has no trouble due to more sensitive material used for the transparent cover. But I don't care for the classic's b/c I now can't stand its sound after modding these 5.5g's.

    Anyone familiar with that cable? I need it for when my M8 eventually arrives :)~

    I have the other amp wallet (for the stack) with the same clear cover.  I have no issues using my iPod touch though it...
