Can I use DT1990 with the balanced ouput of LCX?

If i am not mistaken, the DT1990's are only compatible with single-ended cables and therefore can't be used balanced on any amp. You would need to mod your headphones first.

I've been having a lot of trouble getting this guy to work under Linux. In Ubuntu, I have to unplug it and plug it back in before it works, and even then, sometimes I get imtermittant clicks - regardless of the audio source. In Manjaro, the thing basically doesn't work at all. In common in this error message in the logs: "usb 1-2: device descriptor read/64, error -71" I'm using the latest editions of both operating systems, so my setup definitely isn't outdated. It works fine under Windows. It's gotten bad enough that I basically can't reliably use this under Linux, and I'm getting the feeling that this is not isolated. https://drop.com/buy/massdrop-x-grace-design-standard-dac/talk/1916761

Can someone comment on the tonal character? Looking for a warm sounding Amp.

From what I’ve read and watched it’s subtly north of neutral with a slight emphasis on bass. I have an Airist and a 789. Just ordered the Cavalli Hybrid as well. I’m looking at the LCX for when I want that SS sound but not the straight up neutral presentation of the 789.

I need to travel between UK and US frequently, So would it work in both places if I bought another UK 230V adapter?

Does the SE pass through only pass through the SE input or can it pass through the balanced (or at least the dac) as well, if it were being used for, say, powered monitors?

Dac is digital to analog, if you plug via SE pass, it will only output via Jack. Outputting via balanced is pointless

I know it's "pointless" from a technical standpoint, I was trying to figure out if it would be possible to pass all of my sources through if were to use the SE pass to hook up powered monitors.

I got to ask. Is the SDAC inside this the same as SDAC-B or just the regular SDAC? Also what 3.5mm to Balanced cable do you recommend for this since this apparently sounds best with balanced, but poorly on SE.

You should not convert balanced output to SE; doing this will break the amp--maybe not immediately, but you will break it. You're going to have to buy dedicated balanced cables for the headphones you want balanced. Aliexpress has cheap options for headphones that have a proprietary connector. For example, I picked up a nice-ish 8 core balanced cable for my Sennys for like $23 bucks shipped--well below half the price of anything you'd buy off of amazon and a 1/3rd the price of sennheisers cable.
