        @Melvillian Abyss. It's from Jude's CanJam vid, but he's not the first or last to use that kind of doublespeak.

        - @Melvillian - Amazing how he emphatically loved every little thing he shilled on that hour+ long abomination of a vid.

      What reasonable explanation is there for amps to sound different on different gain settings?
      1. Cspirou
        Cspirou
        Low gain has more feedback than high gain. Also high gain can have higher output impedance.

        LOL! Yup. I think NwAvGuy tried to fix an inverting current buffer (CMOY no gain), by adding gain. And went for a two stage amplifier cuz he felt the gain fix did not cut the mustard.

        @Cspirou thanks. What would be your expected influence on the sound? Just trying to see if it matches with my experience

        Ha, I'm keeping it light, but I'm definitely the hater on the thread I guess ... I like the Mojo enough, but it's overpriced and I'm fairly convinced Rob is 80% full of shit

      LH Lab Go2 Pro Infinity, is that the one to get? Red metal casing. Would it fair better than Mojo as a compact office setup?

        @jexby mostly with sensitive IEMs and PM3. I'm a little lost with all the versions out there, but I see people commenting positively on SBAF about this line of products. Quite a few for sale on HF so I might pick one up

        GO2Pro or GO2A are very good single ended, even better if you have balanced cabling. yes Red Metal is the deal. the gold metal casing is only for Special Editions which contain femto clocks. if your IEMs are uber sensitive like CA Andromeda and you can hear low level hiss, a IEMatch unit into GO2 will cure it.

      The local FB 2nd hand headphones group is dangerous... ZX2s, WM1As,... All very affordable. Why do you tempt me!

        @elguapo yeah... I only discovered it recently. The guy from the local IEM shop showed it to me. I'm just happy I I didn't know of these FB pages in HK... I would have been broke by now.

      Any recommendations for a small desktop DAC/amp without battery? Fed up with the Mojo charging situation. All my headphones are sensitive.

        I liked the M9xx/M900 a lot when I had it, as well. DAC section is better (quality) than the amp, IME.. but it's pretty nice overall. It pairs really really well with highly sensitive IEMs, also (multi-BA, custom IEMs). No noise, digital vol. control that's super granular.

        In Berlin I tried a Pro-Ject DAC/Amp with DSD and Roon compatibility. Pretty nifty unit and so small...

      That moment of awe when you hear something new in a track you've heard dozens of times.

        Definitely exists. Found some impressively high dBTP numbers in my collection when Jriver added r128. Turn down 2dB and you'll have them handled.

        The above advice is mainly for pop, rock, dance. Jazz and classical are much more likely to not exceed 0, or only do so by an inaudible .1 or .2.

        I re-did a few files and can hear an improvement, mostly hotter pop and rock recordings. Worth the $10 for the SW

      No love for Fidelio X1? Very similar to X2 but less V-shaped. Same driver, different diaphragm config.

      Same IEM, different sources have more or less out of head spatial image. What is it in the source that increases it?

      AK70 Ryuzoh mod in the house - way lower OI and THD. Impressed!
