Well, I still have my iFi iCan Pro, JDS Labs Atom, Littledot MkIII and Littledot 1+ amps to try with it, so should be able to find something for every can.... I hope!

So far, the RME ADI-2 DAC is an absolute beast, no regrets purchasing this awesome little piece of equipment. Once I figured out the controls, this thing has been pure magic.

I think the iFi micro iTube2 preamp/buffer will be my next piece of gear, mainly for the Estat rig. Any of you have direct experience with one?

I'm sure (both of you) have probably watched it, but I did another episode!
I hope you enjoy.

Couldn't say no... I just couldn't!

Guy posted on reddit, here and looks good enough to take a risk on. Been communicating back and forth for a few days and just made payment. He'll be installing STAX cable per my request... and cups were just printed... I decided on yellow...because why not.

He will put a pro plug on it? Does it cost extra? Can these be powered by the iFi iESL?

Using a STAX SRE-725 extension cable...which adds the cost of the cable ($100) but will be absolutely worth it to have full STAX cable with connector. He even has a separate version of the cups for using STAX cable, designed to fit the flat ribbon cable better. He can do a STAX compatible connector only for around $15.

The iFi iESL should have no issue powering it, the headphone is rated for a 500V to 700V bias voltage, so STAX PRO bias (580V) would work fine.

So I had a $120 estat energizer come in today...



And sounds GREAT! Nice full body and low end presence with the Gustard X20U DAC and Schiit Loki driving it. Not the tightness, cleaness or finese of the RME ADI-2, but nice smooth, organic feel to the sound that is absolutely rich sounding. The ESP95X energizer will be for the L300 I'm selling, figure it will sell better as a starter system with 'amp'.
