Still trying to understand what exactly the LX mod adds and why do I need it? Sorry but I am a newbie
To my understanding. it is the model WITHOUT the amp. It stands as a DAC so you can use another amp.
The LX mod REMOVES the Volume knob. The hole where the volume knob used to be is plugged on the LX. The amp stays however. We do NOT remove the amp.
So, you can think of LX as "fixed at maximum output level", whereas the stock DACport gives you a real, analog volume control, so you can adjust the listening level on the unit itself. We believe that it's much easier to adjust a volume knob on the unit, rather than hunt through windows on your laptop's screen to look for the volume knob. This is why I recommend you get the regular DACport, and not the LX.
You can consider the LX as a model for tweakers, whereas regular DACport is an all around awesome, self-contained DAC product with an amp and a real volume knob.
Does the regular Dacport come with the belt clip - using a Fiio X5 also for mobile uses?
the more I read the more I don't know if I should get the 1Ohm version. I Use 250ohm beyers and 32ohm akg's. does anybody have some good advice before the drop?
