Now here is a shocking little CMOY with an unbelievably high power output (for a CMOY, and portable). We’re not talking about driving AKG K501s or Sennheiser HD650s here. I’m talking driving an AKG K340 with a CMOY.
Ipod Touch 2nd Gen > Moon Voice Nano CMOY > AKG K340 is singing at about 3 O’clock position. And that’s with a classical recording (normally mastered at a lower volume level than mainstream music).
I am not kidding you! I was shocked too! A CMOY that drives an AKG K340! Do you have any idea how hard the K340 is to drive? With that kind of power, HD600/650 should be a walk in the park. Of course the sound quality can’t be compared to high end portable amps, though this CMOY is pretty good sounding too. But it is not everyday we have a portable amp that can drive the K340.
