are fiio A5 still has imbalance issue with low volume (due to analog potentiometer weakness) ? has somebody modifying it to more balance without using external attachment like impedance adaptor or something else ?

This is the 1st I’ve ever heard about this.

When you say “low volume”, exactly how low are you talking? Because I sometimes listen at pretty low volumes, and I’ve never heard any kind of imbalance.

If you’re talking so low it’s barely even perceivable, then I’m personally not too worried about it.

Just curious...

my e12a usually feel unbalance for my sensitive iem for position below 9 o clock eventhough they said that amp dedicated for iem and low impedance cans

Interesting...I’ll check mine out later today and see if I can notice a difference. I own both the E12A and A5, so it will be interesting to see if one or the other or both have the balance issue you’re describing

I’m curious. Currently I run a nx3s fed by a btr3, usually hooked to my k240s, sometimes my shp9500. Always use amazon music hd. I changed the opamp to a NE5532. I have no complaints with this setup, just wondering if the a5 would be any better? I think I may have getnewgearitsshinyitis!
