I had the L30 for a couple of weeks and found the sound boring and the power was not as strong as their specs stated. The other new amp I have is the IFI Zen Can and I prefer it much better for overall sound and power. It drives my Beyerdynamic 250 ohm Dt 770's and Dt 990's with more authority and they just sound better. I also like the synergy with the HD58X and Zen Can. My DAC is a Schiit Modi 2 Uber. I sent the L30 back. I didn't know about the problem with the L30 and was lucky it didn't blow up my phones.

Yeah clean amps like this will be boring if prefer fun or certain sound signature.

I think the A90/L30 'sound' is still very good though.
Be careful before you plug in any expensive headphones to this amp! JohnYang over at ASR has done so much handwaving to avoid admitting Topping have no clue on if the 'fix' works or not. Buyer be-very-ware!

If you are familiar with the process, do you mind going into more detail on the process and places where he could of improved, such as using higher voltages? What corrective actions are usually taken in scenarios where the product fails? Providing those details would go far to educate others on the issue then just saying a company "sucks" over and over. As far as additional failures, I haven't seen any where more headphones are blowing up which means DC protection is probably working. Some failures seem to be due to the ESD mitigations not being installed correctly on 2012 SN models. People are still getting replacements for failures.

GiantHeadphoneSquid was spreading fud on them not replacing headphones and provided a poor summary on the fixes implemented. I had an early SN L30 that failed and sent DC out to the headphones. Luckily it didn't damage anything. Got my money back, waited a bit for newer revisions, and now I have one with the mitigations. If it fails again I'll be sure to post back here.

I love my L30. I got it for $120 on amazon, so this price is way too high. This is one of the best performing amplifiers in existence right now with a SINAD of >120 dB.

Statement from Topping: https://www.facebook.com/2495577743786403/posts/3978806902130139/?d=n They are offering to exchange all units with serial number starting with 2011 or less. UPDATE: Topping customer service has informed me that replacement service for Drop customers is provided by shenzhenaudio.

I also reached out to Topping customer service and they replied saying that shenzhenaudio will provide replacement services directly to Drop customers. I have contacted support@shenzhenaudio.com and let's see how they handle this. Once upon a time I tried to get shenzhenaudio to price match Drop.com (for an xDuoo I think), and they replied saying that they will not price match Drop.com since "Drop doesn't provide after-sale services" and they do. I guess this is what they mean... But I'm glad that Topping made arrangements with shenzhenaudio to take care of us.

Thanks for the heads up! I just sent them an email as well. I've gotten mixed reviews over Drop's customer service but this will probably be my last purchase here. I'd rather have the ability to exchange in case anything goes wrong over saving $24.

A hundred pictures of the product, not a single shot of the back panel.

I was thinking the exact same thing. It's like they want you to use your imagination and think it has inputs that it doesn't.

Now, 2 months later, still no proper pictures of the back. MASSDROP get off your asses and do your job if you want people to spend money on your website. p.s. price increase too?
Is it just me or did these suddenly get a lot more expensive? Even outside of the black friday deals ($117 I want to say), these were only ~$130 last week. It's bizarre, there are reports of these nuking headphones popping up everywhere, and Topping RAISE their prices lol?
Not as shocking as this amp is! ;p
People in the US have nothing to worry about, JDS and even Schiit now are winning price/performance vs Chifi already, this just increases their lead. Topping's price increase is in EU and AU etc as well as far as I know. . . these folks lack a better domestic option(s) :(

This is something to be aware of if you are planning on buying one of these. https://forum.hifiguides.com/t/psa-topping-l30-damaging-headphones/20109

I've heard plenty of mixed things about Schiits customer service though. Not only positive things.

I've used them a few times, and they've always been stellar. They also tend to have way better than average warranty. Back in the day, I wouldn't say it was customer service exactly, but they had the same issue as this Topping and did not handle it well. They've improved a lot since, though.

If it only comes with US adaptors, is it compatible with 240V power supplies?

I was also wondering if this will work in Aus. The power supply is an AC transformer, not switching. Looks like the US PSU only takes inputs of 100 - 120v

It's -not- a universal supply, no. Beware.
