    Dear all, thanks for all your input,

    I've managed to get an O2 amp from a fellow vr-zoner

    How're you finding the O2?

    Comparing with the default amplifier from the citypulse:

    Very much clearer, bass is tighter, soundstage is slightly wider, details are bought out even more. Overall seems a tad faster in a way.

    However, was a bit unused to the greater equipment separation, like I can really visualise the guitar is at 5 o clock, the piano is at 9 o clock etc.. seems a tad unbalanced for me.. haha

    The veiled impression i had when i was using the citypulse amp was totally cleared with the o2 amp.

    I am now very intrigued by the ODAC after the performance of the O2 amp.

    Overall impression, quite like it, sound signature is slightly different from citypulse dac/amp, can't say for sure which I prefer right now, will try a few more days.

    Haha I'm waiting for ODA to be released. Not going to use it portably so no point getting the O2. ODA+ODAC should prove interesting.

    A few things i hate with the O2.. Why are the Power and Line input connects in the front panel!

    I am tempted to get the ODAC from alakazams' mo, but I wonder how am I gonna connect both my speakers and my 02 amp on to the dac... using a 3.5mm splitter?

    NwAvGuy pushed everything to the front panel to cut cost mah. Single custom panel is cheaper than two custom panels.

    ODAC can go into O2 where the batteries are located. It will then be linked to the O2 PCB.

    ODAC output will be overrided by any external line in being plugged in in that state AFAIK.

    As what i have now is a JDS Labs O2, hence looking at the JDS Labs ODAC. At least both looks nice together. ^^

    On the side note, do you think the ODAC is better then my current Citypulse? With only a 3.5mm line out from the ODAC, How is it gonna run both the O2 and my speakers

    Thats one major problem I am considering before getting the ODAC

    EDIT: Changed my plans on getting the ODAC now, shall wait for the ODA and see if it includes input/output switching with the dac ^^
