This was $140? Never tried it, but that is good value.

The price hike killed my interest. it was already not selling much since the increase from 140 to 175 and now they're just burying it alive

I‘m using this one with my DT770 250ohm. Overall it‘s really good. But when nothing is playing or during very quite parts there is a noticeable static noise. Is this normal? Source is 3,5mm to RCA using Audioquest cables.

i noticed using balanced headphone out, unit got warm to touch. But using SE headphone out, it didn't get warm Not sure the reasoning, any one else notice?

But why is it crooked?
I'm not sure why this is listed as a balanced headphone amplifier. It's only single-ended internally. It just has XLR inputs and outputs.

Can some good people having sp200 comment on their listening levels and knob positions? I was somewhat expecting a more powerful amp. Although it gets loud, I can listen around 10 on high and 12 low gain modes on my Klipsch HP-3s which has 25 ohm impedance and 98 db/mW sensitivity. Maybe I can try to measure it with my phone to compare.

Smsl m500 headphone output should be equal to 25-28. No pass through mode, neither fixed mode if that is what you mean. Some dacs' fixed mode fixes to half volume but since it is digitally controlled, I think it shouldn't matter either way. I use XLR cables to connect to sp200. RCAs are also connected to a diy tube amp (which is insanely loud, I have to turn dac volume down to be able to control volume pot) I don't use mqa. DAC is connected to PC with Highest sample and bitrates. Alhough dac was plug and play, I still downloaded drivers. It uses theysicon drivers for xmos. Did I forget anything?

would buy this over the magni heresy If I knew there was a 50% chance of getting something with a channel imbalance because you dont qc potentiometers..

Yeah, it is fine. I am happy with my unit. Also knob feels decent, not robust but not wobbly like some people report either.

That slanted side bugs my OCD. Why would SMSL allow such a polarizing thing.

I really do not notice, but it is 'stacked' under my Desk, on top of the SMSL SU-9, which is sitting on my JBL sub. With the 1:3 Balanced XLR switch sitting to the side,

it is perceptible. ¯\_()_/¯

It would look nicer if cables weren't visible.
