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

Howdy folks, Remember that time I said that this was going to be the last production units scheduled for the year, but we’re looking into increasing this?

Well, we now have more units going up for sale. Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, July 23rd at 12:00PM PDT, we’ll be opening up the page for pre-orders. There’s only one inherent difference with these units as they will be Drop branded, as you’ll be able to see from the updated images on the Overview page. This won’t affect those who purchased their amps at the end of May. Those are still slated to ship in August September. This batch of amps, however, are expected to ship before the year’s end, but I’ll confirm with all of you once that’s settled. The amps will still be $400. A ton of you have requested this amp, and we’ve been working diligently to be able to provide it to more and more of you. Here’s hoping we get these into your hands. Take care, and if you have any questions, let me know. Thanks, Duncan EDIT: Looks like the new batch will be shipping November 15th EDIT 2: My apologies. The May 30th batch will be sending in September, not August. My mistake, corrected my note above. Thanks to the person that called that out. This batch is still expected to ship November though. EDIT 3: WE CAN NOW SHIP TO AUSTRALIA

I am thinking if I could use the balanced headphone out + trs minijack ground to drive a pair of xlr input to my amp.. Use 789 as a preamp...

Idea for future revision. Swap out the 3.5mm single-ended output for a 4.4mm balanced. You can buy a 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter for like $2, making the seperate output somewhat redundant. The 4.4 would be far more useful imo.

To double check, if this is purchased with the Grace SDAC (Balanced), will a pair of XLR interconnects be needed to connect the balanced output/input of the SDAC/THX? Or do one of these units come with the required cables to be able to use the two units together already?

From what I see, you need to buy your own XLR Interconnect Cable.

Monoprice on amazon work well but any cheap one will do just get what length you need. Even the cheapish ones use decent quality cable.

Hello, I respond to your message earlier but for some reason DROP interface has problems posting my comment. I will ask you this again, it may be ridiculous and sill to you but hear me out. From your experience at the convention, are there any sonic difference or improvement between the Benchmark THX 888 and Drop THX 789 ? Maybe you could not hear its true potential due to the loud convention floor.

Come on nick, are you trolling me now or something? I am telling you, the objective measurements between each demonstrate that it is impossible to hear any difference between one or the other. The only difference in performance one could notice is power output, the rest is not detectable. No one else can detect it either, it's not just me. Anyone that claims they can is lying to themselves, and others. There is a reason the measurement device used to test these costs 10's of thousands of dollars man.. Why would someone waste their money on such a measurement device for that much money man..? Do you think people, manufacturers, and engineers that verify specifications are all idiots? Be rational nick.

This question may have been answered already (looked and didn't find it) Can I have different inputs connected to both SE and XLR and then just use either the SE or XLR output? I was thinking of having my Airist DAC connected to SE and a Geshelli Labs ENOG2 PRO connected to the XLR inputs. Then I can use my XLR headphones when I want and then switch to SE for the cans that don't have XLR. Thanks in advance for a response to my question.
