Got the duo today, very satisfied with the sound quality. There may be a slight imbalance at low volume levels but I'm probably just imagining it.

Thanks heaps for the advice Marcus. EF2A is working fine on X64 computer.

Only thing is the website doesn't mention an AC adapter is required for the EF2A (it only comes with an American plug). Would be good if you added that, or better yet included one.

Thanks again.

I get a little bit of channel imbalance on mine but this is only at very very low volume. Nothing at usual listening levels.

yep i think i'm just imagining after reading reviewers mention it.

are you using a travel adapter on your mallet? or did you get a complete ac adapter with an australian plug?

channel imbalance at low volumes is a common 'feature' of all but the most expensive potentiometers (try to get a quote on an ALPS RK50 ;))

a stepped attenuator with low tolerance resistors may solve this issue but introduces many of its own

you're doing it wrong.

everyone knows a true audiophile conditions the power coming into his home and has selectable voltage inputs along with universal power sockets so that they are not limited by the range of power cables available.

but I guess a travel adaptor will just have to do for now :nod:

Apologies! We normally do include an Australian plug. I'll look into it tomorrow for you.
