...for the Drop Studio folks.
WHAT IF we assembled an entry level kit for a balanced headphone set up?
I think a fair number of peeps would welcome a starter kit that includes a balanced dac/amp,(see Topping), the right headphone cable to do balanced cans, and.... GET THIS..... the correct connect cables for balanced INPUT.
I believe there are a bunch of folks that really don't know how to go about setting up a balanced rig and are hesitant about buying a balanced amp because they don't know the direction to go as far as purchasing kit to get rolling with it.
I know it was a little daunting for me at first, and seemed pretty expensive, and I got headphones that included a balanced cable that I didn't have a rig for, and and and.
So maybe we could cook up a nice little balanced kit that doesn't break the bank, maybe add an option to buy a Drop collab set of headphones, DEFINITELY include at the base cost the proper input cables and a proper balanced headphone cable for various cans and have options like what headphone connectors you need etc. etc.
Or purchase the components separately if you want, instead of the kit as a whole.At least then people would have the pieces and parts offered to them that may have puzzled them before.
Learning how to build a balanced rig is cool and enjoyable....for some people. Like, I relax myself by working with my audio gear, re-building turntables, re-furbing vintage speakers. Modding headphones.
I don't think everybody who might really want to experience Balanced has the time or inclination to get gritty building a rig. And maybe newbies to balanced don't want to invest so much cash to try something that maybe they won't, ultimately, feel like investing the time and cash in for deeper exploration.
It just seems like something marketable and something that may really be a help to folks just venturing into a deeper audiophile world.
