Is the Pico Power a dac amp as well, or just a amp?
i dislike adverts that group specs for multiple items in one paragraph
Massdrop Community - Pico or Schiit? All input welcome I use - B&W P7 & P3 S2; KEF M400(x2) KEF M100(x2) KEF M200 (on sale 60 bucks a steal); Senn 58xx (MD) Senn 6XX (MD) ; HIFI man HD4x (MD) Thank you. -BD

I assume you mean the pico dac/amp and the basic schiit stack of magni/modi. From my perspective, if you want portability, buy the pico, otherwise buy the schiit stack.

Thnx Much
Yesterday I found my Pico Power Amp order was moved to CANCELLED section. Till now I have not received any notice about this from Massdrop. Besides this one, I have two other orders, Cardas cables and DT990 Premium also got cancelled yesterday without any notice.
What's the chance that three different items got problems at the same time? I have asked them about these through their contact support right away, not getting any response yet. It is kind of rude they handle things this way.
Does anyone still not receive the Pico Amp from last order?? I check my status on DHL everyday. However, mine still stays in Germany for about a month. I don't know whether it is DHL problem or customs don't let my Pico Power go (because of Batteries?). What can I do now? Really miss the PICO POWER!!??

Mine hasn't arrived and I finally got refund from Massdrop. I have ordered twice and both didn't arrive to my address. What's a pity.
Sorry it’s not a dac it’s headphone amp
Hi I just received the pico dac when u tried to charge with a power bank with 2 A output and didnt work
only the wall charger worked , what could be the issues ?
Pls..asking again... What's the output impedance of Pico DAC/Amp, I only see Slim's output impedance.
botisto
Thanks, Botisto!
I had that PDF, looked at it waay before, but forgot about it. Thanks again! :)
Arrived!! Will review after some burn-in time.
It states that this is also a DAC. What's the specifications of the DAC
Does the Power have ac/dc in or usb charging function for rechargeable batteries?
phoenixsong
No,only open it and take out battery and charge with another charger
shipped today...
Not shipped yet,don’t wish the same as last time
Good news for everyone : )

LEWayne
Just joking why u so serious? 😂
I'm in for some sweet, sweet shipping update action, too. According to the article, supposed to be today, but I haven't heard anything.
LEWayne
They all arrived at MD's warehouse earlier today
Pls update shipping status. Thanks in advance

Thanks alot Mr.Wilson and hope to get your amp in soonest : )
Any shipping updates? Was hoping these would be shipping a bit sooner since stock has been ready since the cancelled drop.

Will be glad if there's the pico amp version (without the DAC)

Get the pico power. It's basically the most versatile and best sounding out of the bunch, if you don't need the dac. Ok, the battery replacement is not very convenient, but the sound compensate and the ability that I can use it with my IEMs in low gain, and hard to drive headphones in high gain is superb. A little wonder of portable amp.
@JustinWilson anyway the last few of us could get on this since it just ended?
What is output impedance of the DAC/AMP? And also is it Asynchronous USB?
If I use this on my PC with Spotify and my NuFkrce EDC3, will I see a large improvement?
With the pico dac amp are you able to use a cck to connect to an iPhone 7 directly as a transport?

What is output impedance? The DAC on DAC/AMP is asynchronous USB?
Will there be another pico drop?
Got an email from Massdrop unceremoniously cancelling my order. While it's nice that they dropped a few bucks back into my account for the trouble (seriously, thank you), gotta admit I'm a bit pi**ed off. If you can't provide it, don't advertise it. Was really looking forward to the product.

Hi,any updates from massdrop?I can only get the amp for joining the new drop?
wanjuderenxing
You can join the new drop. As mentioned in another posts, our enclosures arrived late and massdrop cancelled the drop. We have plenty available now for this drop.
i tried my pico slim for the first time yesterday after charging it, it turns on but there is no sound coming out of it. do you guys know whom do i contact for warranty support?
ir77
is it possible you are trying to use the Pico as a DAC? it does not have a USB input. That is just for charging
Any shipping updates?
botisto
Right now we're waiting on a new shipment of enclosures to arrive (we had to get them anodized). in past drops we already had them ready so that's why it's taking a bit longer. We're supposed to receive them by the end of the week.
JustinWilson
Cheers for the update
If anyone is interested I have a mint pico power for sale. Has about 25 hrs. on it. Reason for selling is I'm going to a desktop setup. This amp sounds great and has tons of power. Asking 220.00 plus 10 to ship anywhere. Cheers, Ron.
Can someone help me decide between Pico power and Sound Blaster E5 for my Sennheiser HD 6XX please

I'd go with the power for the s8... It's got a decent enough DAC and the pico power has a very high 50k ohm input impedance so it's putting almost no load on your S8's amp so you'll get the best possible performance out of it.
People get 40+ hours out of the EBL 840 rechargeable li-ion batteries which is pretty insane. And it's only two thumb screws to change them. I actually prefer having removable batteries in this case... amp tech like this doesn't really go out of date and when your li-ion batterys can't hold a charge anymore you can just put in a new pair. If Justin from HeadAmp had included the circuitry to charge batteries the amp would have to be bigger, and that pretty much sums up the no BS performance attitude.
I'm in for this drop on the power for my HD6xx and Open Alpha T50s :D. Had been researching portables before the drop and nothing really comes close to the power anywhere near this price.
botisto
Thanks a lot @botisto @coolerking
Pico Power 😍 Surprised this drop isn't more popular... the power especially is a legend. You can still buy them direct from Headamp for $475
Anyone recommend pairing either one of these models with sennheiser PXC 550?
Stumbled upon Innerfidelity's measurements of all three of these amps... holy the power measures well. I'm a little bit in love. Looks significantly better than an O2 on AC in basically every regard except for a very high impedance and low sensitivity load. https://www.innerfidelity.com/images/AllAmpsJuly2013.pdf
How does the Pico Power compare to VE RA Plus?
