Dear headfellows,   just a note that the current sales on the PCSTEP will end on Monday!!   Jan
Dear Headfellows,   there are amplifiers that do not get the exposure that, in my opinion, they do deserve. The PCSTEP is such an amp. Sonically it really is a very nice and nifty device.   To promote this amp a little bit more I've given it a considerable price reduction that is valid only during the month of June. It's well worth a consideration!   :-)   Jan
Dear friends,   sorry, but I have been in the Netherlands for a couple of days. My mother had her birthday, and she's more important to me then you guys!!   :-)   Anyway, I will start answering E-mails tonight.   :-) Jan
Dear headfellows,   The ROCK has a slightly warm sound to make it more forgiving for bad recordings and mid-fi quality sources. An entry-level amp like this normally isn't paired with sources of the highest quality.   The HD600 has a rather warm sound. The combination of ROCK and HD600 will thus sound on the warm/relaxed side. Whether that is a good thing or not strongly depends on personal taste. Technically the ROCK has no problem driving this headphone at...
Dear MunDa,   please don't worry, the ROCK has more than enough power to drive any headphone currently on the market. It has absolutely no problems with the HE-500 (although most of my customers do combine this headphone with the JAZZ or the CLASSIC).   As for a DAC, the choices are multifold but I'm honestly not an expert in this field. You may ask around in the "dedicated source components".   Cheers   Jan
Dear friends,   for me it's very difficult to understand why this amplifier never gained much popularity. It really is a very nice sounding headamp for a very nice price.   Fortunately the people of Innerfidelity did recognize the qualities of the ROCK and Tyll even selected the amp for his Wall of Fame.   To celebrate this occasion I decided to have a special sales during the month of Mai. Just check my website. You won't find a better amp for that...
Dear Lithium,   As for power, this strongly depends on the amplitude of the input signal and the impedance of the load. For a given impedance it can be calculated from:   Maximum output voltage:         10 Volts (2 Volts analog input) Maximum output current:          500 mA / channel   All values rms!   These values are enough to make your ears bleed with almost any headphone.   As for THD, I never have been able to measure. My equipment simply isn't precise...
Dear headfellows,   from the comments on Head-Fi it shows that various people seem to be somewhat disappointed by the CLASSIC/DACCORD-review on Headfonia.   To be honest, although Lieven clearly stated that the CLASSIC is not his favourite amp, I myself am pretty pleased by this review. The sonic signatures of amp and DAC were well and honestly described and the merits of this combo were made clear. Lieven did recognize the qualities of both devices, just indicated...
