Picked up my JDS Labs The Element Dac/Amp yesterday. Now just the long wait for the 6XX headphones :D!
What are you guys running to power your 300 ohm impedance cans?
Emotiva a-100 and modi, POWAAAAA!!! Also going to buy a modi 2 uber and magni 3.
i've got my Emotiva TA-100 Amp/DAC, which i actually got for free from EmoFest last year.
I have an audio gd NFB-11. I have them at 12 o'clock on low impedance to power the 6XXs.
Daart Canary > Bravo Ocean with JJ 12AU7 tube or Aune X7S (JDS Labs OL Switcher as output switch)
Fiio X5 III > Audio GD NFB-12 or Darkvoice 336SE with GE tubes (I got other tubes for the Darkvoice but haven't played around with them yet).
I did try the X5 III + Xduoo XD-05 (with V5i upgrade) portable stack one time, it works, but kind of heavy.
I wonder who got pissed when I rode a bus that time ;)
at the end of this year I would be powering them with R2R Dac amd 788 Amp from MD.
Centrance Dacport Slim
PeachTree iTx Dac + Little dot MK IV SE
Centrance do surprisingly a very good job driving any cans... even the DT880 600 Ohms I no longer have now.
Sounds amazing too.
That sounds pretty awesome, I am a noob to all of this jazz, but I am trying to learn so I like researching what kind of setups the audiophile veterans are rocking with!
