Anyone know if this X7s would be a new 2020 version as well? As far as I know the X7s hasn't changed since 2018.

Mine just arrived, although the details don't say it comes with a power adapter, it does. It comes with a Mean Well GST18B09-P1J, a 2-prong 9V 2A switching adapter. Since I read the discussions here before it arrived, I was scared it didn't come with an adapter so I ordered a Mean Well GST18A09-P1J from Jameco, which is the same as the one bundled except it also has a ground prong, I'm interested to see if that would make any difference in sound. I'll probably write up a review soon.

I didn't recognize the adapter is not included. How and where can I get DC power adapter?? Even after I get this more than 2 months from now, should I look for the right adapter?

Thank U, but is the plug size all the same? I'm sorry I can't get Meanwell products here, so i need some precise specification.

Let me get this straight... The new X1S has a 9038 instead of 9018, but doesn't fix the mid-volume saber distortion, still has the same high OI, and doesn't even ship with DC power adapter??

I see some people upset that the output impendance is ~10ohms. As a beginner audiophile, what's this mean? That IEMS and low-power headphones will be too loud?

There is an accepted rule in audio regarding impedance matching between headphones and the output device/amp which is the 8 to 1 rule. Basically, the rated output impedance should be no more than an eighth of the headphone/iem rated impedance. For example, if this device has a rated output impedance of 10ohms,then the minimum recommended headphone impedance would be 80 ohms. 80ohms rules out a lot of typical consumer headphones and pretty much all iem. It's not like it will cause damage or not work, it's just that it affects the frequency range output or certain lower pitch bass sound. Might not be very obvious at all to a casual listener.

  1. Can I change sound volume of the LINE OUT using the volume knob?
  2. How do I switch from headphones to line out?

A great update since my 10th anniversary X1S. But there's an other product from Aune, X8 dac as more feature like a line out and a preamp out. For me i would change my X1S for a X8. That way i could use the X7S as a headphone amp only and use the X8 as a preamp. https://www.aune-store.com/en/aune-x8-schwarz-p5834/?var=true

Doesn’t seem like the X8 is readily available. I’d like to pick one up as well W/ my X7S and use my X1S in another room.

When is this going to drop again? I’m looking to add a DAC to my Darkvoice in my living room setup. I want the option of having an Amp for those headphones that don’t do well with the tube amp. I am also considering the Toppings DX3 Pro. The Bluetooth option is intriguing. I have an X1S 10th anniversary edition in my office that serves as a DAC for my X7S and desktop speakers. It’s been a solid performer for me for a couple of years now. I have had good results feeding the Darkvoice with my current X1S this my interest in getting another one. I like having the multiple input options as I’m able to feed the X1S via USB and Optical via Chromecast Audio. While the amp on the 10th Anniversary X1S isn’t great I’m hoping the Class A amp on the 2020 edition is a noticeable improvement. Has anyone heard both?
