    Monoprice Monolith THX 887 Balance Headphone Amp: New Champ?

    XLR vs. Single Ended Inputs: Primarily the advantage of XLR over SE is eliminating the issue of ground loop related noise (if you have any). Makes longer runs less susceptible to noise. XLR vs. Single Ended Output: Specifically with the THX design of the 887/789, with XLR you of course get the...

    Geshelli Lab Erish coming soon

    I have yet to purchase a Geshelli product, though this amp may be my first. I have followed the reviews for their products for quite awhile (both the objective and subjective reviews). I love the approach they take to designing and manufacturing, it is truly unique in this world of corporate...

    RME ADI-2 DAC vs. D90+A90 vs. Burson Conductor 3

    Exactly, that's why we measure. Or as they say in football, "That's why we play the game".

    Curious, why do you think the Burson will measure poorly?

    RME ADI-2 DAC vs. D90+A90 vs. Burson Conductor 3

    That makes sense, I do wish there was an XLR headphone jack. I do also like the high quality microphone input on the Burson Conductor 3 - surprising that others have not done this as well.

    RME ADI-2 DAC vs. D90+A90 vs. Burson Conductor 3

    Which would you go with? The D90+A90 are of course separates, while the RME ADI-2 DAC and Burson Conductor 3 are combo Amp/DAC with pre-amp capability options. RME ADI-2 DAC - $1149 Topping D90 MQA - $799.99 and Topping A90 - $499.99 = $1299.98 Burson Conductor 3 - $1744 (Conductor 3X Reference...

    Which new Headphone Amp should I buy

    You do not mention your price range, but I'll put in a plug for the 887 or 789. Plenty of power, as clean as you could ask for, and excellent versatility to drive anything from iem's to higher impedance headphones with 3 gain levels, and again versatility with XLR/RCA inputs, and XLR, 1/4 inch...

    What's your headphone system end game?

    Stepped up my amplifier options with a new to me tube baby - an Oblivion by Ultrasonic Studios. Chances are you are not familiar with this, as it is a custom amp builder from Sweden. It is not a typical design: "The topology of Oblivion is transformer coupled (parafeed) balanced amp with open...

    Monoprice Monolith THX 887 Balance Headphone Amp: New Champ?

    At 300 ohms you have 250mW for the Atom, 410mW for the Heresy, and 700mW for the 887. The Heresy is an excellent little amp, but yes the 887 does best it in measurements. Then of course there is the matter of features. The 887 wins in having XLR input and output, as well as a 3.5mm output. There...
