How do you like this setup so far? Also are you using the SE output to power your Sennies? I just bought this exact setup a few minutes ago and I’m curious what I’m in for. I don’t have the Jubilees but I do own the HD6XX which I plan to upgrade with a balanced wire to enjoy the extra power from this amp. But I’m curious how the unbalanced output sounds and if it handles powering the 58’s without an issue? I’m going to be running balanced on my Audeze LCD-X & HD6XX (eventually) but I’ve also got a bunch of non balanced cans I am hoping to power with these: AKG k712, AKG k702, Audio Technica ATH-AD2000X, ... let me know what to expect. (I’m moving “up” from the Schiit Magni 3+ / Modi 3+ stack and looking for some first hand insight.)

How do i like it so far? it's awesome. I'm using the SE output ATM (still waiting for my two XLR cables to arrive) and i'm planning on making some custom balanced cables later this week. The SE performance is just beautiful, i'm getting more soundstage and the mids are far - FAR more clear, the 789 has no issue powering my (150 ohm) 58x at all and on mid gain at around 2-3 o'clock it can literally blow my head off so.. 1 o'clock is the sweet spot for my 58x. I also tried my Ikko OH10 and tin t2 and on low gain it's probably the cleanest experience you'll ever get with an IEM for this price.

I can’t wait. I’m excited to give this setup a go of it and feed my cans a decent signal. It’s my first real setup (for my laptop) well I had a Schiit Hel, and then my current Magni 3+ Modi 3+ stack, and an Oppo portable combo, but I imagine this to be a noticeable upgrade over the Schiit stack from what I’ve read. *fingers crossed* so I just ordered a set of custom balanced cables from two different companies to try out on my Sennheiser and Audeze.
