Isn't the X1S also an amp? I had the X1S and it was marketed as a headphone DAC+amp. Has anything changed?
No, the X1s is an excellent DAC with a rather lightweight amp built into it. The X1s was made so you could bypass the amp and use it as a standalone DAC, say, if you wanted to use it with powered speakers or a better more powerful amp...such as the X7s.
Actually the X1S has more power than you’d think. Zeos said for years that was his favorite headphone Amp until he got the X7S
It has adequate power for many headphones but it is not blessed with a strong amp. Power-hungry cans can tax it pretty heavily. It's got a very good DAC, though.
Yes, but it has enough power for the 6XXs
With ease. No way it can be called light weight. Middle weight at least but more power then 99% of people will ever need
The 6xx will be my highest impedance headphone. I only have the m1060 and massdrop fostex tx-0
