I'm blown away by the sound quality of the JDS Element with the Massdrop AKG K7XX. Smooth and effortless reproduction of all the frequencies with tons of power on tap. Killer amp and DAC! Great job JDS Labs!

@Dmitry49

LOVE the copper ring around the volume knob. The Element by @jdslabs is my new desktop DAC.

@iamkdh92

O2+ODAC soldered up and sounding fantastic. Was curious how well the enclosure engraving would turn out with the gradient... @jdslabs freakin' killed it! Looks and sounds clean as hell!

@bmwilson14

I have had A LOT of audio equipment over the course of my life, but man my @jdslabs element is my favorite. (paired with @Audeze LCD-2's)

@Paul

Element 3 is installed and what can I say. What an upgrade. The screen is so useful and I absolutely love the volume control increments. It just feels so satisfying to change the volume now!

@NarptGaming

My new Sennheiser 6XX's next to the also new Element by @jdslabs

Just wanted to commend the excellent customer service; I emailed the DIY section with a query regarding my failed O2 amp and I thought the "we respond fast" header would get me a response in 24-48 hours, I was shocked t…

Pedro V.

Received today the O2 kit, assembled in some time, and, wow, wow, wow!

Bolt V.

My Objective 2 works great, and looks good to. Dropped some coin on a nice little Topping rack for it on Amazon. Thanks so much again JDS! I'm getting a lot of compliments on the sound and look of the amp

@thwk_

From one diy project to another one... 🤓😎 Thanks @TheMagP1 & @jdslabs #O2Amp #ODAC #AIYProjects

@elijah_io

"Thanks again, @JDSLabs for the amazing O2 headphone amplifier. Very impressed; eyeing your OL DAC now."

Mark J.

"Just got my ODAC, sounds great, this unit is exactly what I needed and what I wanted."

Paul Z.

I've finally reached my endgame in terms audio quality :) Sennheiser HD6XX and OBJECTIVE2+ODAC is audiophilia at its finest ^_^

@DrJorts

Bought some new audio gear from @jdslabs and def took advantage of their free custom engraving

@gadgetman007

"Picked up an O2 + ODAC. Cool engraving by @jdslabs."

Excited to build my cMoyBB!

Tomer G.

New toy: JDS Labs, Inc. El DAC. Initial impression is remarkably neutral sound along with remarkable resolution and detail

@JTCPingas

OL Switcher preamp is super useful. I got one for easy volume control for my new speakers, which I love! Headphones will always have a place in my heart, and the EL AMP+EL DAC are the sexiest pieces of audio gear I've ever seen! Clean, neutra…

@M_Shenay

my new OL Switcher is a Live safer! If you've ever even considered grabbing a switching pre-amp, trust me the sooner you grab one the better!

Daniel W.

Just received my objective 2. Everything from packaging. Weight. Material and most of all the audio quality is 10/10. Even was caught off by the esd bag it was contained in. I'll be back for any possible audio needs

Oz M.

The El stack just arrive today, making the Elear sounding more transparent, love it.

Ryan L.

"Hi, recently purchased The Element, must say that it is the best DAC/AMP that I've used in it's price range, in my eyes (ears) it surpasses even DAC/AMPs double it's price."

Tim M.

JDS does their job well without resorting to Hyperbole to move product out the door. Glad my research led me to this small company with reasonable pricing, solid products.

hazemac

The OL DAC is a remarkable upgrade for me. More transparent. Clean. Real. Even without an amp change. Well done, JDS. Thank you.

@skotterbutt

"Man, @jdslabs has a fast shipping department."

Joao A.

My new cMoyBB head amp just arrived! Looks great and sounds even better!

Dan M.

My new custom Objective 2 is truly my new secret weapon for mixing university assignments. Sounds amazing with my 2i4 and K702 headphones. Thanks guys! :)

@Autophase

A great sounding combination @TIDAL masters as source, through a @jdslabs #ODAC into @YamahaUK AX392 and finally out of my @TannoyHiFi DC6T Digital really is stunning when done properly

Greg A.

I use the OL DAC with my surface laptop and my emotiva bas x a100 and polkaudio s15 and Dayton Sub 800. I really like the OL DAL it work really well with my system

@MarcoMHanna

Big knob. Big power. Okay, I’ve been a noob my entire life with audio until today. These are powering my HD 700’s and it feels like I’ve experienced music for the first time. @jdslabs you guys make some killer stuff!

@the_mckern

New JDS Labs Element arrived today. Just gonna hang out in my office with headphones all night.

@pramodnundlall

Enjoying my stack!!! @jdslabs

@AustinBlairRace

"ODAC REV B - is the best DAC (small size) in the market i ever tested, bullet proof design, very reliable, tested on PC/Mac literal plug-and-go."

@JTCPingas

Huge shout-out to @jdslabs for early shipping on the Atom amp! I'm already in love with this thing! Thanks so much guys!

@joshrogosin (NPR Tiny Desk Producer)

Great gear alert 🚨. No more hiss with my new O2 headphone amp from @jdslabs. #tinydesk concerts never sounded so good 🤩 🎧 🎶

ScarisRacer

I'm absolutely loving my new OL DAC and Atom Amp from @jdslabs. Smooth low end, solid mid range and crisp highs. 100% Worth the wait!

@Paul

Element 3 is installed and what can I say. What an upgrade. The screen is so useful and I absolutely love the volume control increments. It just feels so satisfying to change the volume now!

Daniel L.

Purchased a couple devices from JDS. They are absolutely exemplary in quality. I purchased an Element from them a couple years ago and I've encountered zero reason to purchase another DAC/AMP.

Ondrej K.

Greetings from the Czech Republic!

Steve N.

Love the Objective 2 - awesome little amp!

@adacnin

"@jdslabs thank you for making the element my favorite amp dac combo ever"

Marlyece B.

"Just got my first amp. O2. Great, sturdy little powerhouse. It really opens the soundstage and makes audio fuller with my AKG 700s. I had mine customized as well. Great way to make your amp yours!"

Andy L.

Love my JDS setup!

@kelko

Kudos to @jdslabs - not only are their products breathtakingly good. Their customer service and support is equally awesome. Thanks for all the help 🙏
