    Very consice and excellent info, thank you. This is my first 'dip' into the tube sound and I was a little apprehensive of changing anything, but now you have explained how to alter these I'll be straight on it as soon as I get in from work.
    I'll report back how I get on :beerchug:

    @golov17 Hey would you mind letting me know what earbuds you think sound good with the B4 and your setup? Right now, I actually think that the Toneking TP16 sounds best above even my more expensive buds (I actually like it better than Mojito, even though I like that one too). I know you've got a lot of buds and give me some good thoughtful suggestions.

    [QUOTE = "silverfishla, сообщение: 13496337, член: 460493"] [USER = 404367] @ golov17 [/ USER] Эй, вы не могли бы дать мне знать, что вы думаете Earbuds звук хороший с В4 и вашей установки? Прямо сейчас, я на самом деле думаю, что Toneking TP16 звучит лучше даже выше моих более дорогих почек (я на самом деле, как это лучше, чем Mojito, хотя мне нравится, что один тоже). Я знаю, что у вас есть много бутонов и дать мне некоторые хорошие вдумчивые предложения. [/ QUOTE]
    Роза Мася, Ubiquo es903, В. Е. Asura, Boarseman mx98, etc.. With bright mids and more detailed sounds, than Zen2.0, K's300, Dunu etc..

    Hi, could I ask which Burson Opamp you are using. I'm new to this so its a bit confusing.

    Is it the V5i Dual SS?

    And do I understand it correctly that I only need one of those, and I replace the chip that is visible through the screen?

    I got my v5i dual, its sounds amazing with b3 and 400 Ohms earbuds P70527-192209-001.jpg

    Yes, the V5i dual is the one to get.
    I knew you would love it! How could you not, right? :wink:

    Waiting Walnut v2s for testing with Burson OPA too ))

    I have a V2s coming too and am curious to hear the Burson in it. I just bought one of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dual-Discre...456047?hash=item20efc284af:g:EqYAAOSwCZ5Vfdzn one late night in a bit of an impulse buy. I'm not sure if it's going to fit or work in the B4 or Zishan or Walnut. It got some great reviews and one even said better than the Burson. We'll see because it's doing some things that a regular op-amp isn't. It'll be a mystery, hopefully a good one.

    I recently ordered the Little Bear B4 for use with my Agptek/Benjie S5 and it will be my first headphone amp. I was mainly interested in the B4 because of the tubes and the option of using higher ohm cans.

    What volume level do you guys set your DAP's at when using with the B4? I mostly set my S5's volume level between 3/5 depending on the music I'm playing. I know with digital output its better to max out the audio output to maintain bitrates and dynamic range, but I'm not sure the same applies to analogue signals as well?

    i am using the b4+ single tube with my onkyo dpx1, i can tell you that i just turned the volume about 1/10. it is already loud and clear.
    i changed to use the LME49720, the sound quality was instantly better. and i will be testing the Burson V5i Dual soon.

    You set the volume of your onkyo 1/10? I purchased a OPA2604AP to try out with the B4 as it was pretty cheap, but I was recently looking at discrete op amps and I came across Burson V5i . I've never really messed around with
    op amps before but if I can hear an improvement or change in sound quality I might eventually consider something discrete like the V5i.
