  1. Just received one that I ordered. It does not have retail packaging but just the unit with manual & 2 short cables (micro USB to micro USB and Micro USB to USB). The size is very similar to my thumbnail USB drive. Actually thinner. It is about half thickness and 2/3 length of Dragonfly Red that I used to have. I will do a few hours burn in before listening... My quick 5 min impression is a bit less resolution but similar output as Dragonfly Red. I am amazed how this small size unit can drive full sized headphone effortlessly.

    LH Labs no delivery at AS

    Their product is very good but delivery & service are terrible in my humble opinion. (I am still using their portable dac/amp but I guess that I am lucky case). Hope not many SNA members got into trouble getting product from them.

    My dumbness. The automatic drop off for 7" & 10" are now working fine. I just did not know how to use it (I do not have any 7" & 10" LPs so never used it) and read the operational manual, understood how it works and all auto functions works fine now. Happy to demo to new owner (if there is). 😓

    Pro audio power amp - anyone using one?

    Keen to try class D pro amp such as Crown Audio XLS series (not for sub but 2 channel stereo). Has anyone tried it before? And, May I ask one dummy question? I have not touched pre/power separate but integrated amp only and I was told that turn on the gear in source -> pre -> power sequence and when turning off, do the reverse so power -> pre -> source. I saw some users of Class D power amp never turn it off but leave it on 24/7 basis since it takes so little voltage when it is not playing. If it is left on 24/7 basis for example, how do we turn off active preamp? I guess that passive preamp can be just turned the volume right down but not sure about active preamp without turning off power amp first. It is safe to ignore the sequence and just turn the volume right down and switch off active pre without turning off power amp? Thank you in advance.

    I am not sure. I made 3 ~ 4 different changes by reducing price and adding bonus etc and start losing track of it. if you are keen to take it, send me a PM . Cheers.

  13. Wow. He is way ahead of game. When I was his age, I only had Sony Walkman, Cassettes and crappy earbuds.
