sorry for late reply I'm using dt 770 250 ohm , and can easily drive them with the same power as my atom amp and for some reason it kind of a bit of power than my previous atop ampHow do you feel about C200 power and which headphones do you have?
About C200 DAC wise a very nice improvement to my Topping D50s, Warner but still neutral and detailed sound. But it's about the amp side that I'm a little confused. Beside my low oHm headphones like Grado 325, HD600 works on Hi gain and 50 volume, hifiman h560 hi gain 65 but edition xs somehow doesn't shine as I hoped. I'm plugging them in the normal port I still don't have the balance cable but I really wonder if it has enough power
SMSL has uploaded a firmware update for the C200 to the Support page on their website to address this issueperhaps op could edit his post to inform about the issue with static discharges causing issues with the device. i personally used this device a couple of days, loved it, but it would regularly turn off the sound output when i turned off my power amp that was connected via rca to the dac. also sometimes when i would just get up from my office chair. many people have reported similar issues and the official smsl costumer support responded here about the issue:
Hi all, I received the smsl C200 for Christmas from my wife. First off I'll say that the sound quality and functionality of this device is amazing. But...whenever I'm using the headphone out with my HD600's I lose all sound when I remove my headphones. It happens almost all of the time and will...www.audiosciencereview.com
tldr, there's potentially a firmware update in the works which will hopefully fix this.
Thanks. I dont think i ever turned off the Massdrop O2 SDAC, then when i got this unit i started wondering if i should have been turning it off lol.There is no reason to think it would hurt the unit, I have been doing this unintentionally lately and have had it on for about the last 4 days, with no ill effects.
I'll be honest, I don't really know a great deal about asio, I don't really ever use a pc as a source. Whenever I have done, I have always chosen the maximum sampling rate capable for the connected DAC.Thanks. I dont think i ever turned off the Massdrop O2 SDAC, then when i got this unit i started wondering if i should have been turning it off lol.
I also was wondering. I have some music in foobar that is 24bit/96Khz. So i have Asio Bridge and c200 properties set to the same. Will this effect music quality when i only play 16/44.1 from spotify?

Check if the output line in the first setting has changed after the upgrade (H/o-L/o).Heads up that this might have bricked mine. No audio output anymore, though it's still detected in Windows and I can pair it to Bluetooth devices etc. Probably should have backed off after seeing how sketchy the updater looked.
