 This is exactly the worry I have.I should explain - I have the 100 ohm LCD-4 and I rate it as the finest HP I have ever owned.Mine work just fine - so the dilemma of having them changed to 200 ohm V2 and sounding "worse" or leaving them as they are and hoping they don't break. Having said that, in the UK, the distributor hasn't started doing the recall as yet, so time is on my side. I have had the email from Audeze as I did register them online. I guess I am hoping to see...
Hi all, Thinking of buying a Violectric HPA V281 from these people. They are in Germany - I am in the UK.   I have emailed them to various addresses and got no replies at all. Are they still trading? Anyone used them recently??   Apparently the V281 comes with various faceplate, feet, DAC options - and i wanted to know how to spec this - but as I say, they never reply to any emails, so not sure what to do !   Lee
PM sent.
I got the email as well. I have gone for blue too :)
I have just pulled the trigger and paid a deposit on a BHSE :)

Volume pot - at deposit stage 2. Colour? 3. Type of feet? 4. Choice of tubes.   Is this it - have I missed anything??   Thanks   Lee
Steve - thanks for your input - i'll have a read up on this. I owned an Apache many years ago - great amp :) Paradoxper - yes you are right. From my research, I'd say you are totally right on both counts. Plenty to think about :)
Paul and Icebear - thanks for your comments. Really useful food for thought.   I guess like a lot of folk, forums get used as a source of information. Here in the UK, I don't know anyone who has any of these boutique amps, let alone anyone who has been through the buying process. My only source of info is here, so when you read some of the comments and take into account you could be waiting 1-2 years for something, it is a concern.   I only wanted to start a debate and...
