I'm stuck in a rock and a hard place! I've been looking for a balanced portable amp in a while, and this price is really enticing. Other balanced amps I were interested in were the ALO RxMk3B+ and the Cypher Labs Duet. Anyone have any incite in how the mini-m8 compares to those two?
I'll mainly be using the amp with my Beyer T5ps, DT880 (250 Ohm) and my Yuin Pk1 (150 Ohm). In addition, I'll most likely mod all those with the mini 4 pin balanced.
This Amp/DAC has four inputs, for starters. That means your purchase is future-proof. You can change your DAP (source) later and Mini-M8 will still work for you. You can use coax, optical, USB, iPhone, android -- the works! Secondly, this has balanced and unbalanced outputs, and fully digital volume control, which will never mistrack or go scratchy. The amp will drive almost all headphones out there. Similar products, including our own flagship HiFi-M8, will run closer to a thousand dollars, so this is a steal!
I was also wondering what type of accessories comes with the mini-m8? Does it come with silicone bands, some cables, etc? I've been trying to find its contents online with no luck.
Also, I noticed that the balanced output does not obstruct the single ended output! Does this mean I can use both outputs at the same time and technically I can have two people listening at the same time?
Re: two people listening -- no problems, should work just fine.
Re: accessories -- its comes with charger, two rubber bands, a USB-A to USB-B cable, and a velvet bag for transporting the Mini-M8.
