Re: HiFiMAN HE-400

Yeah, it's claims like that which cause a lot of returns that we're getting on the HE400. Without a bit of power behind them you'll get similar performance from a good $200 pair. Yeah always good to come here after a visit to hype-fi to get some grounding going on... be aware that models like the B...

Re: HiFiMAN HE-400

so while there are a few people out there running the HE400/500 from the likes of Asus STX soundcards and the like, this is not ideal and will not bring them up to their potential. We've had a few customers lately find the HE400 to not be as big an upgrade as they expected from such setups. I find ...

Re: Objective 2 DIY amp under $100

I just had a go at the O2 and it's not a bad little amp. It certainly has a lot of power for a little unit. If you do try to attach something like the Audio Technicas to them, make sure you put the volume low otherwise you will blow your ears off. :nod: Yep I use them on low gain all the time (but ...

Re: Objective 2 DIY amp under $100

If I remember correctly there are a few suggestions in this thread, the best one for you would be the one that is easiest to get. There are a few available that match the required specs from JayCar, Fishpond and Altronics.

Re: Objective 2 DIY amp under $100

Well depends what you are after? The DAC by itself runs of USB as far as I can remember.
The O2 is no big deal, just get it from wherever and buy a suitable plug pack. Pretty simple IMO.

Re: Objective 2 DIY amp under $100

Yes the amp is awesome. Just don't make the mistake to think it is portable - IMO it is only transportable, It is kind of big to be portable.

Re: Objective 2 DIY amp under $100

I would expect it to be much better (at least spec wise) than the Audioengine D1, as far as I remember the D1 had pretty high output impedence right?

Re: Objective 2 DIY amp under $100

Do you think something the ODAC would be a good choice for a portable setup (eg using a 2Stepdance and a laptop)? It should be pretty much ideal for that type of setup. Yes but it would end up costing more than the DACport LX! Isn't the 2StepDance like $400 by itself? Add at least $100 for ODAC (th...
