Amir - based on your experience in measuring amps, what would you say the best performing amp is for $500 or less? Best if has both SE and balanced outputs, but since price/value will probably be very different, what about best SE only, and best SE and balanced combo?You bought two??? No wonder there is a shortage.
I agree. For its performance, it has a very reasonable price.
Just go Massdrop to request. Once they hit a critical mass number, they will re-open the drop.
Its pretty standard on almost all their popular stuff.
No man, I meant sinad, thd, dnr.Do you mean SE output, input..? He briefly touched upon SE amplification performance
"You simply get copious more power at whopping level of 3.5 watts before clipping." >> the lines fall on top of each other until SE clipping point, so as long as you don't run out of headroom, SE performance is identical.
He has no balanced headphones right now so the subjective testing was all done via SE (as well as the khadas tone board input, connected via SE), showed no audible distortion whatsoever.
That is some awesome headphone amp there! Thanks again for the great work. Makes me really interested in the Monoprice one with the dual AKM chips now ...
They can be bought readily.
