Product Description
Announced at CES 2018, the Drop + THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAA™) 789 is a linear bipolar amplifier with feed-forward error correction. It’s designed for objectivists who appreciate an incredibly clean, transparent amp—the sought-after “wire with gain” whose amplification is wholly uncolored by a sound of its own Read More

What makes this better than the JDS Atom?
Balanced output for better compatibility and channel separation. Lower single ended power, but significant power through XLR, which the Atom does not have.
How do I connect this to my computer? I have an rca cable and I plugged it into the headphone jack of my computer while connecting the red and white cables to the input on the back. When I turn it on I hear a loud static noise.
Headphone jack on a computer is amplified through a typically crappy amp. This is a great amp. Garbage in, garbage out. Get yourself a DAC which will connect to the computer via USB and then connect its output to the THX. There's lots on here to pick from -- Topping, Grace Design, etc.

Perfect together with the Balanced Grace SDac
Apart from looking the part with the drop balanced sdac, it pairs perfect with the hd6xx if looking for a quick sounding amp. Brings out the full potential of pretty much any headphone, absolutely no trouble powering through 300ohm’s of impedance. Love the gain stage, although I prefer to keep it on lowest gain setting for the ‘most true’ sound signal. Personally use it for sound clarity and crisp details. Not disappointed in the slightest.

The standard
For hard to drive headphones, this is a great option. The main reason I still have this amp is to power my Argon Mk3s. The extremely low noise floor makes it great for a number of other headphones and IEMs as well. There’s nothing wrong with this amp. It’s well built and the great design makes it a very desirable object to keep on your desk.

The OG, replaced by the Drop Version, then the SE version. Still cool.
This amp has been faithfully reproducing music for my headphones for years, couldn't be happier with a solid state amp.
