Hi,

just received this external USB DAC+AMP from HotAudio.com.

Its based on Burr Brown PCM 2705 chip.
Here is the ebay link for the item :
"HOTAUDIO MARK IV" USB HEADPHONE AMP / AMPLIFIER - eBay (item 260332375869 end time Apr-12-09 14:13:58 PDT)

The amp has got excellent reviews at head-fi :
hotaudio40 's amps - Head-Fi: Covering Headphones, Earphones and Portable Audio

However, I ran into a problem. My primary cans are Denon D1001 which have a very low impedance and high sensitivity, which means that this amp is way too powerful for my cans. The hissing problem is significant only when I listen to old hindi music, for most modern music the hissing is inaudible.

This amp would be great source for someone with high impedance cans or even a decent 2.1/4.41 speaker system.

The seller has offered me to return the item and he would refund the amount. But then I would have to bear the return shipping expenses so i decided to offer it first to you guys :cool2:

^^ I think it will drive them well.
I haven't come across posts about HD 650 but I have read that it synergises well with HD 580 which has similar impedance to the 650s.
