Yes, in low gain as long as there is enough power to drive your headphones. Please see the first post of this thread:Question as I'm new to using dac/amps in general but how does the low gain and high gain work on this amp, do I leave it in low as long as the volume gets loud enough...
ok gotcha, thank you sir. One follow up question, Using planar headsets like my he4xx would that make a significant difference or theoretically regardless of the headphones just stay on low gain as long as its loud enough since this amp seems to be better off that way and if I come across headphones that don't get loud enough switch it to high?Yes, in low gain as long as there is enough power to drive your headphones. Please see the first post of this thread:
"This is in low gain by the way. High gain was not quite as good."
When you can get loud enough on low gain used it on low gain.
When you need to go louder set it to high gain.
There is nothing more to it.
Both in high and low gain the performance is better than any audible limits.
That's probably because it is louder when switched from L to H setting.
When you have good volume control and have no L-R imbalance at low listening levels (volume control setting) it is fine to use it on high gain.
As long as you don't hear any distortion that is...
