Luxury & Precision W2 Portable USB DAC/AMP Headphone AMP
Quite shocking what this little thing can do to transform my 64 Audio u12t.
It immediately came to life. Bass was tight,mid clean and revealing and high well extended. Soundstage and imaging is acceptable.Mind you I’m stating the point without the firmware updates. My friendly advice is go for it and will never disappoint. Trust Me .
I'm absolutely floored by what the L&P W2 can do to the music (Apple Lossless) streaming from my iPhone. Inserting this DAC/AMP in between my cell phone and my IEMs created a listening experience that was on par with one my expensive DAPs. The bass was deep and tight, mids and vocals wonderful and treble was clean. Sound-staging, previously flat, all of a sudden opened up to concert hall dimensions. Although I enjoy listening to music through my DAPs, I have to say the tiny W2 has opened up again the world of listening to music off my iPhone. It's just amazing.
Really love the W2. I thought the W2 would be large, but apparently it's quite small.
I also had a fantastic buying experience. The purchase process was effortless and it arrived in 4 days.
This is such an improvement over BT modules I’ve been using. I’m not a fan of using the camera kit with my iPhone so I’ve been waiting patiently for something like the W2 that on paper, looks like it would surpass most other similar dac’s out there. After using it for the past couple of weeks, I can say that it sounds fantastic. Preset EQ’s work well testing it out with various earphones. Firmware update was a breeze and functionality is simple. The sound is brought up significantly using the W2. Worth the $$ if sound and a compact dongle dac is your thing.
I've been listening to the W2 with the following stack: iphone + w2 + sony ier-z1r / senn hd800s / focal clear all balanced. All of these sound great. I bought a second w2 for the wife as well because it sounds so great.
