I’ll fill out a carnet once the us tour is done.
@Ziva I’ll be sending your way by Saturday. Please DM me your address. Thanks,
send a pm if you don't mind, thank you!
We’re all set. I’ll Fedex on Saturday. Thanks
I'm going to have to bow out of this loaner tour, I'm afraid. I'll be out of action for a few weeks. Sorry. (tagging @rhythmdevils so you know).
Can I just move you to the end of the list for both loaners?
Yes, please! That'd be awesome if you wouldn't mind and if it's not an inconvenience.
done with both loaners. If you. need more time, just ping me again or pm me and I'll move you down the list further. No problem.
Received from @Cryptowolf
Shipped to @wadec22
Can we get an update on loaner status please?
It's in transit to @loadexfa
I know the loaner tour is nearly halfway through and this is not the impressions thread, but I've noticed little mention of the Diablo as "just an amp" so I'll leave this here:
Note: pay special attention to the garish red at the top right and the 4.4mm balanced input feeding into it, or explicitly: I've been checking out the Diablo as a dedicated headphone amp downstream of BF2 and DAVE over the past week
I think people are missing out by not trying the iFi Diablo as a dedicated headphone amp (reference point #2 here), at most using the included 4.4mm -> dual XLR pigtail + some female-to-female XLR adapters* to get it done (*I can probably drop off my cheapo ones with one of the Bay Area folks' for the remainder of the tour if it makes things easier and @rhythmdevils is cool with it).
Hoping to see a few impressions of the Diablo as just an amp vs. $$$-$$$$ options over the remainder of the tour.
I had to go out of town at the last minute due to a family situation. I will be 2-3 days late in sending off the Diablo to the next person. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I admit that I thought about trying this (feeding the Diablo with a Yggdrasil) but I decided that such a use case was not very likely for me or anyone else. By the end however I sort of regretted it as the potential is there for the Diablo to compete with sub $1k desktop amps I think.
@jexby (I assume you're managing this loaner), @3X0 has kindly offered for me to send his female to female XLR adapters so others can use this with an external DAC. Should I go ahead and include them? Also thanks 3X0 for offering.
IMO it's competitive for it's price as an amp.
@loadexfa yes the connectors can be included but only for the remainder of the USA tour.
details will be re-examined before Canadian leg as I have to reconfirm details now that RD isn’t handling this any longer.
Sending off to @CaptainCope today.
