Pretty decent setup. I would assume it's for portable purposes? How do you carry those around??

I usually dump it all into my messenger bag or my customed waist pouch. Fits my DAP, Amp, and even holds my can. biggrin.gif

 

I second the PV2V2. It's really a good deal for $SGD100. It was undoubtly the darkhorse during the Mini-Dap meet last month. Drives well too. I love it on my 250omh DT250.

Hi patt0n, if you are refering to the PV2V2, sooory as I sold it to a fellow forumer even before i took a good listen to it on my grado. Now my grado's taking the back seat while the Beyers step in. I am currently using my H340 with either the Porta Corda MKII or the Supermacro + Beyer DT250.

 

I would say it's a good compliment for the iriver considering the costs and size. Don't get me wrong. The sonics of this little amp is pretty tady good. It was just a little behind the supermini in terms of bass. If you are getting grados, you wouldn't care about the bass response. You WILL get bass, even without the amp.

 

Get the PV2V2. A good start for portable building.

I couldn't put my pa2v2 with my player cos the screws scratched them real bad. Had to get a pouch with two compartments to solve the problem.

it's ok. I already got my pouch. Besides, I want to open the amp up once in a while to charge the batteries. I know you can charge with an adaptor to the amp itself but I like to drain them first and then use the right battery charger. The last time I charged with the amp, the plastic battery casing melt off the batteries.

There is a Mass order going on at the Mac forum for this PA2V2 Here.

 

For those interested in getting at a cheaper price of US$53, pls take a look there.

USD$53 is cheeeeeap~. Go get em' all! I think this thread should be more "highlighted" so others interested in better sound can go for it. party.gif
