I gotta say, the massdrop stack is getting prettier with each new piece of hardware...
Basically everything is connected to the Aune X1S in this pic. While the LCX is also connected to the fostex via xlr :)

Purely on the amp side of things:
The x7s is far more sterile in its audio output. Basically a beefy objective 2 amp with an XLR port. Not as bulimic as the O2 though.
The LCX has a distinct warmth to it. This amp brings out all the details in your music really nicely, giving it a very rich sounding output. I'd place this just a bit higher in preference compared to the X7S. Its overall more fun to listen to.
The CTH is far more brighter between the three, it does deliver nice impact to your music. Everything has a nice punchy sound to it. I'd probably place this unit last in my preference between the three, just out of personal preference.

Thank you for sharing your impressions it definitely sounds like the LCX would be the best pick of them all. May I ask what headphones do you have?

What happened? How long have you had it? Does Massdrop have any kind of warranty?. I was just about to pull the trigger on one of these.

Sbaf forums seem to suggest that Cavalli products are notoriously unreliable. I wanted to try CTH myslef but after reading how many kicked the bucket, I went the audi gd route... and sbaf also hate audio gd!

I've been rocking the Liquid Carbon X for a few months now with no issues and I'm very happy with it.

Drop + THX Panda -- Bluetooth Audio Clipping Whenever Resumed from a Pause of More than 2 Seconds
I don't have much experience with Bluetooth headphones and figured I'd ask here to help set my expectations a bit. I just bought some Drop + THX Panda headphones. They're well reviewed for sound quality and supporting higher-end audio codecs, some of which Macs support (eg: aptX) and some of which they don't (eg: LDAC). Anywho, upon unboxing them and pairing them to my 2020 iMac running Big Sur, I noticed that audio over bluetooth sounds totally fine until it's been paused for more than 2 seconds. When I unpause, it almost feels as if maybe the headphones are coming out of some standby or low-power mode and are rushing to start a new bit stream. The sound is clipped / distorted for a second or two until it "catches up". This is particularly annoying for things like notifications and other sound effects which, by nature, are essentially really short audio clips. I can't find anything online explaining if this is normal behavior or just a shortcoming of bluetooth or these specific...

DAC/Amp Combo for MASSDROP X SENNHEISER HD 6XX HEADPHONES
Hi! I am seriously considering buying the HD 6xx's, and I'm very new to advanced audio. I was wondering what is the best DAC/Amp combo for these headphones around $100. Thanks in advance! Edit: Would FiiO E10K work?
