    If there's single ended input, the 4-pin XLR output is driven single ended. See "A Couple of Notes on Operation" in the Innerfidelity review. It will still sound fantastic, though - I own the GS-1 with Dynalo+ modules which is kinda like the GS-X mk 2 but single ended only and it drives the HD 800 well.

    A somewhat unrelated question, is it a good pairing with Grados?

    A somewhat unrelated question, is it a good pairing with Grados?[/QUOTE]Yes, I enjoy the pairing.

    I have been giving a good bit of time to the GS-X mk2 and the LCD3 pre-fazor
    Great synergy here and such a enjoyable listen....nothing bright or fatiguing with this combo, blues music is sounding wonderful.
    This amp has been a great addition for me.

    I had nearly the identical setup for a while. The GS-X and LCD-3 combo was a great pairing.

    What gain setting are people running for LCD 3s? Mine would be the fazor so not sure if that would be any difference.
  7. Whazzzup
    HD800S and susvara work fine in Med gain, Imagine lcd3 somewhere between the two
  8. whirlwind
    Take your pick, the GS-X mk2 will power the LCD 3 on all 3 gain settings...I am listening on high gain at the moment...volume at about 11 OClock

    Do you believe the GSX MINI can adequately drive the Susvara balanced? It is less powerful than the GS-X and doesn’t have a separate power supply.

    Gsx-Mini has enough power to drive the Susvara. It has too much power. And the power supply is much better than the one on GSX-MK2. It is built from new tech and more efficient and is more advance! <-- This looks like a GSX-MK3 might arrive later on with this new tech.

    I've never heard the Mini, but @protoss has given you a very informative post.

    I am currently debating between the exact three you mentioned above plus the
    Soundaware P1. Mjolnir Audio Pure BiPolar and finally the Wells Audio Milo. Have you listened to any of the latter? Just need a balanced amp that is totally neutral and with black background like the DAVE.

    Wow! A lot of good choices and decisions. As a sponsor I’m not allowed to comment on products I don’t sell, even if it’s complimentary. You’d have to ask me offline.

    Please pm me if you have any advice. I am especially interested in how the GSX-mini compares to the Vioelectric and the last three amps mentioned in my post. I will be using the amp between the HMS/DAVE combo and the Susvara or Abyss PHI (still on the fence about which can to buy). Thanks
