Any impression about this with HD650/HD600?
This vs the Little Dot I+?
How good is this amp for the DT 990s?
I was planning on getting a FiiO E12

So, is just one more buyer needed for everyone to get the unit for $79.99 ?
Can this power the K7XX's?

No problem, always looking to help.
xDuoo TA-02 or Bravo Ocean - should I wait for the Ocean to drop again or is this a better amp? Or somehing else for an office/work system. Looking for an amp for my Merdian Explorer DAC/Amp. Just added a little Dot MKIII for home but need something smaller for work.
If I were to hook up my Beyerdynamic DT990 to this with an adaptor (preferable one with as little cable between my cans and the RCA inputs to preserve fidelity), would there be much quality lose. Also, I listen to a lot of melodic and symphonic power metal ( ie Nightwish), so there is a massive amount of fast instrumentation. On my ODAC/O2 its still feels somewhat difficult to distinguish between instruments and such because of the sheer intensity of the playing and I was wondering since they mentioned speed and clarity as being benefits of this device. If I put this into my un amplified port of my DAC and played my dt990s through it, do you think I would get the better clarity out of the metal, since they mention EDM and I would imagine that the general issue with these generes would be similar as far as having so much going on at once and such. It is hard for me to articulate my listening properly since I am still pretty new, so I do apologize and appreciate the help!!

Okay that changes things. 600ohms often changes the game. If you need to use the gain switch and high volume on the 02 and the volume is still a bit low then you definitely need a dedicated amp. Would I suggest the TA-02 for critical listening, probably not, for the same reasons I mentioned before. Personally I think you may be better served with something like the Fiio E09K.

Here is Zeos's review. Yes it does cost more because it isn't a Massdrop sale item, however it has far more connectivity options than this in terms of Line outs and pre-outs. It is also a solid state amp and therefore not prone to tube decay. <-- I kind of forgot to mention this before but here goes. Unfortunately tubes slowly decay and mess with the sound as they start to get to the end of their life time. Tube decay is less like one light bulb which all of a sudden stops working, tubes are more like an entire score board of 100 bulbs that slowly start to die out one at a time. You may not notice the first 10 or so bulbs, but it will get to the point where something feels wrong. Unfortunately each tube is different and sometimes they may work great for months or a year or two, but they will inevitable fail. Not to mention tube matching where each tube (even if they are from the same batch will have minor to large audible differences in their amplification of the sound. Solid state amps do not have this problem fortunately.
With the TA-02 currently sitting at $90 + shipping ($9.68 to the US) basically $100 and with the Fiio E09K at $109, my personal buy would probably be the Fiio just for sheer outputs and longevity in terms of no need to roll tubes (which can set you back a number of penny's for some of the better tubes).

That is really not that expensive, although, if I wanted to spend the money would I be better off looking at the element from JDSLabs (that's where I got my odac/O2 from) Thank you very much for all the information though!.
Does manufacturer provide warranty?
if anybody in Canada interest on this amp, I got it from last drop, but I also got TA-01, I don't need this anymore, still in its package. US$89.99 + US$18.32 +CDN$22 tax. give me an offer, it only power on once. and was use along with Audioengine D1, I just like the TA-01 better, because less space.

Where are you located?

new brunswick, can contact me on steam id: Slaander
Please don't waste your money buying 'better' tubes for this amp. It's not a real tube amplifier
Is this 110v or 220v?
Both, it's a 110-240V power adapter with a north america plug.
"Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating." ... 8 days after shipping and the tracking is still not available ... :(
/edit 18/06 : DHL Tracking is working now, but the package is still in the US. Thanks MD for the mail update. It took it 9 days to go from Edison, NJ to Secaucus, NJ (~36miles), slower than someone walking. I now fear they'll swim across the Atlantic.
/edit 26/06 : I received mine, I love it ! :D The power adapter is indeed a 110-240V, so you only need a plug adapter if you're not from north america.
will this work with my PC?
