Plenty of power for all your needs
Firstly, I would like to point out that the build of this amp is great. A bit industrial, a bit elegant. You've got a choice of inputs and outputs, both balanced and unbalanced, and if you want, you can stack it with the CTH as it has an unbalanced passthrough. It has plenty of power to drive anything you want and plays well with the headphones I've owned and tested (DT 770 Pro, HD580 Precision, HD650, Sundara, Elegia, Elear, HD800). Would definitely recommend.

Build quality isn’t great but the sound makes up for it
It’s sounds beautifully and at around $200 with a balanced output I’d say it’s a good amp. The build quality though, specifically in the buttons, aren’t great and definitely shows where they cut corners to get it at this price. The buttons, especially the power button, feels super flimsy and wobbly. I feel like I can just rip it out of the amp with little force.

Very good sound with no audible background. Running balanced with sensitive iems I find that I can't really turn it up at all because it supplies so much power, but that should come in handy if I ever need to drive more power hungry sets in the future.

Had to buy one after borrowing from a friend
As others have said, this definitely has a bit of color to it. It's not a precise, analytical amp if that is what you are after. If you do enjoy just a slight touch of warmth, I don't think you can find a better value in this price range. Everything else I have used, while excellent, is just giving you the straight business. This has a bit of fun with it. Slightly underpowered SE compared to others but no slouch either. If you are ok with those notes, easy buy.

Best for this value
For this value I can't think of anything better. Balanced output is the best. Powerful and clean output. Slight warm touch. Too bad this softener is not better known

The wubs do be hitting different tho!
This black box produces a concussive sound that reverberates within me, thus enriching my soul. I’ve paired the amp with the Drop + Grace Design Standard DAC Balanced to ensure a balanced listening experience.

Great amp with a little bit of color
The amp sounded phenomenal as long as you were using the balanced output. The SE wasn't 'bad', it was just not nearly as good as the Balanced output. If you primarily use balanced headphones then it is a great amp if you like a little bit of color. Don't buy it if all you have is SE headphones.

Still breaking it in. But with the balanced Grace DAC & having 10 balanced headphones to test, it's damn good. I don't think I'm going to buy the THX amp. Keep the system balanced ... unbelievable noise floor.
