    Can I connect my DAC and amp to an audio interface?

    I have a Tempotec Sonata HD Pro used as a DAC paired with a Topping L30 amp, the headphones I use are the Hifiman Sundara. I'm thinking about learning guitar and decided that I want an audio interface, specifically the M-Audio M-Track Solo. Since the M-Track Solo probably won't produce sound...

    Topping L30 problems

    The problem just got magically fixed I have no clue how. Started with -9 dB up to +9 no noise at all in the settings. I just connected my Hifiman Sundara to my newly arrived Topping L30, it makes a lot of hissing noise and sounds like the music is far away. I have the settings on the amp as HPA...

    Is it worth to uprgrade from Topping L30 to SMSL SP200? Discussion

    Hi, Basically title. I've got a great deal on used SMSL SP200 (150€) and I was wondering if it's worth to upgrade from my Topping L30. I'm sort of worried about Topping L30 not giving enough power to more demanding headphones such as T50s and other planars. I don't use IEM and I'm not planning...

    Final showdown: FiiO K5 Pro vs Topping L30(but without DAC) which would sound better?

    So after almost a month of owning my Beyerdynamic DT 990 pro and trying to figure out which amp to go for, here is what I've narrowed it down to, and I don't wish to consider any other option but these two given my budget, availability where I live and all my past research. Which of these do...

    Intermittent buzzing on Topping L30/E30 setup

    Basically I get this random buzzing, it's 5-7 short 1-3 second buzzes of sound, at a sort of mid pitch (the pitch is the same all the time), and then it stops. It happens randomly, some times it's every 15 minutes, other times it could be an hour between instances. I tried a couple pairs of...

    Got replacement L30, destroy the old L30 ?

    I didn't get any directions on what to do with the old L30. I was told the problem that broke headphones was very rare and happen only in a small percentage of the batch (to my understanding). But then I started thinking if I sold and it destroyed their flagship or even any headphone, I'd hate...

    Questions regarding topping spec-sheet (voltage and gain)

    Hey guys, I recently bought some used Beyerdynamic T1.2 (600 ohm, 102 db/mW) and I am very interested in the Topping L30 (btw is it true, that it is actually the single ended version of the A90?). When I read the spec-sheet, there was one thing I wondered about: Output Level. It is 26 Volt...

    Bought Topping L30, Now Fiio Q5s or Topping E30?

    Hi guys. Currently, I'm using my Q5 as the USB DAC to pair with my Topping L30. Considering an upgrade for my old Q5. I seldomly bring my Q5 out, so desktop usage is the priority. But still, sometimes I need a portable device with some power, like when going to a HiFi expo, or some offline...

    Is Topping A50S single ended output as least as good than topping L30

    Hi there. To keep it simple I prefer the design of topping A50S over L30 and since there is no too much price difference... I only need Single ended output. I know measurements are not everything, so I wonder if someone have compared them in side to side test and could tell me if they are at...

    Best Option for HD6XX: Archel 2.5 Pro, L30, or THX AAA 887

    Hi Everyone, I'm new here. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD6XX and am looking for a headphone amp to drive them properly. I currently have a Topping D30/A30 setup and I really don't like the A30 with the HD6XXs, it seems too noisy when you boost the gain to drive them. So, I'm considering the...

    AMA about the Topping L30

    Dear All, my L30 finally arrived after 1½ months of wait. I ordered when the device was on backorder from Audiophonics. Why? Because after many years (since 2010) of not thinking my AKG K701 sounded good (or loud enough) for my taste. I thought I would take the plunge and order a dedicated...
