Works really well. I had problems when not using a tube amp as a power amp. This L30 II started to clip at high gain. What amp u have?Can the Topping L30 II preamp out be connected to a Tube power amp (100K input). Is the preamp section active or passive? Many thanks for your input
Both the L30/L30 II share NFCA amp design by a lot with the all in ones like EX5Is it class A?
Is it class A?
Not completely sure but L30 (II), Atom, Heresy... Amps with dual power supplies usually are AB class.Both the L30/L30 II share NFCA amp design by a lot with the all in ones like EX5
At first I took this as sarcasm, but it does actually look like a distortion spike at 60Hz from a noisy power implementation in the V2.
The original L30 doesn't have this spike and is cleaner with no spikes above -120:
This is kind of typical for cheaper ($100-150 range) amps. The performance is there but otherwise I guess you 'get what you pay for'.ONE ISSUE !!! on the high setting when the volume is at absolute Zero there is a small amount of the audio signal still heard in the speakers… Anyone else?
Same happens here. A bit bleeding.Im auditioning the ToppingL30II tonight preamp section, first time. Denon DVD 3910 CD player to Topping to an Adcom GFA 565se power amp to JBL 4312 control monitors.
With the Hi setting volume at 8-9 oclock is plenty loud enough. Medium gain equal loudness at 11 oclock.
Crystal clear image, full sounding, sounds good, Clear as a bell.

I do not have anything else sensible to test that with at the moment sorry. I only have hd660s and atleast they give their peak performance with this little box.
I drive mine on medium gain but your cans has also a much lower sensitivity so they are pretty hard to drive. You cannot directly compare them by impedance alone.Ok. Thanks. I see those are 150 ohms. When I'm using my dt 990 pro 250 ohms, I have to set the volume knob at 2 o'clock on high setting. I just wanted to make a comparison
You can actually turn the display off from E30 III've been without audio gear for a long time, other than a Qudelix-5K which I personally adore and drives all my IEMs with no problem (in fact, my last desktop DAC/Amp was the original DX3 Pro a couple of years ago which I sold due to lack of use), but I'm motivated to buy a DCA Aeon 2 Noire soon and now I wanted something without the distracting orange numbers at low light, so I've ordered the L30 II with the Moondrop Dawn 3.5 version as a DAC to hook it up behind the computer and have a clean desktop setup at night.
Excited to see how the combo performs, at least initially with my IEMs and later with the Aeons.
