I'm planning to get this to drive my HD6XX but I'm kinda don't know which to choose. Medium gain or Standard? I'm afraid getting the medium gain at high 3.3x won't be enough to drive or Standard gain at 6.5x might be too high and might distort (from what I heard). I don't have a dac yet but I'm planning to use this with my DacPortSlim until I can get my hands on a SDAC. Sorry for the noobish question and thanks in advance.

Depends on your source. If it's a low power source like an iPod or phone, you'll probably want high/standard gain.
I'm using an O2 with an iPod Classic through my HD6XX and I'm using high gain and it sounds great--no distortion at all.

Thanks for the reply. I'll just get the standard gain then since dacportslim does have its own amp but not enough to drive the 6xx. Gonna be double amping for a while until I can get my hands on a SDAC.
