Wow, I bought the NX7. It's a great little AMP in fact the best and cleanest sounding portable AMP I ever heard.

A lot of reviewers listed main con as it's not having a DAC built in, and Topping surely surprised with G5.

The best part is Topping kept the analog in.
How does it compare to ifi products?

NX7 has the best measurements for any portable headphone amplifier out there right now, it even has better measurements than some of the desktop AMPs.

The ifi AMPs I had were xCan and Gyphron. The AMP on NX7 is cleaner and much powerful than both of the ifi AMPs. The NFCA modules on NX7 definitely helps achieve the best performance for a portable AMP. If you don't care about the sound enhancements of ifi, NX7 is much cheaper and better option IMO.

Yeah on the gryphon i had my legend x turned up to 90 out of 100. On a powerful amp, shouldn't really go above about 50.

Is g5 more powerful than nx7?

Could be some issue with your Gryphon? because with my HD6XX I didn't go past 90.
G5 is touch less powerful than NX7 at 16 and 32 ohms but at 300 and 600 ohms, it's almost similar.

Gryphon might match impedance. So it probably gives low power to iems even with ie match off.

In most cases, DHL and USPS are the primary couriers that are providing us with the blend of competitive shipping pricing and reliability for US-bound orders, and Canada Post and 4PX as our primary Canadian courier partners.

Also, we operate multiple fulfillment facilities throughout the US and one in Shenzhen.

The inventory in each facility fluctuates continuously given a variety of factors and considerations. The fulfillment center for each order is determined shortly before the order is being prepared for shipping.
We also send shipping confirmation email with the tracking number that you can use to keep track of the package.

With that being said, we are fully committed to the shipping time that we listed on the site.

More specifically, you can expect a transit time for US customers of 5-15 business days for our Free Apos Priority Shipping service and 1-3 business days for our optional Apos Express Shipping service. Meanwhile, we are also offering 5-15 business days for Apos Standard Shipping service for our overwhelming supporters in Canada.
