I picked up a FiiO E17 when en route Germany to stay there for the 2012 Christmas period and the early days of 2013. I wanted to do some video editing work and listen to music when over there but didn't want to be without the stalwart reference quality Lavry DA10 which I didn't want to travel with on that occassion, so I decided to give the E17 a try.
Prior to owning...” --Windsor
Without referring to "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's" (A.K.A. NwAvGuy) blog, and speaking from my own listening experiences, I really do think the Objective 2 is a great headphone amplifier. No, I don't think this is the amp to end all amps, but it's a dang good one and it only cost me $156 USD (which includes the Triad brand WAU12-200 AC adaptor). In fact, it can be found...” --miceblue
I purchased the Nuforce Icon HDP along with Sennheiser HD 650 headphones as my first desktop setup about six months ago. I'll start off by saying that the HDP has been a fantastic purchase that I am thrilled with and enthusiastically recommend, especially as a starter desktop setup.
The HDP has loads of power and easily drives my Sennheiser HD 650s and other high impedence...” --Sid-Fi
This is primarily designed to amplify sound out of mobile devices that do not get loud enough for you, either because they are low quality, your headphones are not sensitive enough, or you’re going deft :). As a bonus, it has a built in bass boost with 3 settings (off, 1, 2). It also has a good quality easily replaceable Lithium Ion battery (BL-5B), and comes with...” --rigodeni
iFi Audio is a new comer in the headphone amp scene, but it does share the same bloodline as the renowned U.K. based premium audiophiles brand AMR. While AMR already has some top end gears to offer to the speaker and full rig owner, its little sister brand seems to aim toward mainly the computer based headphone user as well as minimalist audiophiles. Their current ‘Micro’ line of devices...” --ClieOS
I bought this DAC-preamp and after several attempts made the following changes to it for an amazing result:
Installed 5670 Raytheon Windmill getter tube
upgraded diodes to Schottky Diode 11DQ10
Changed the output coupling caps to Sanyo Oscon 47uF
opamp for tube to LT1364 or metal version of LM4562.
The biggest gain came from opamp then the diodes. Do not...” --Lecentaur
REVIEW – Schiit Audio Valhalla Tube Headphone Amplifier
What Sort of Schiit is This?
I read, as did many of you, the head-fi threads about the very popular and attractively priced Schiit Asgard. But to be quite candid, I personally had about as much interest in an inexpensive solid-state headphone amp as I did in weeding behind my garage. As such, I have never heard the...” --Skylab
Here is my video review of the JDS Labs cMoyBB v2.03.
“Received new FiiO E7 today from Micca in Fairfax, Va (hi ex-neighbor - used to live in Arlington.)
Did much reading on this forum and other reviews and truly appreciate the candid and (sometimes) brutal thoughts of recent purchasers. After just a few hours experience, can only share my first impressions - all of which are positive.
Unpacked, reviewed instruction sheet, plugged in USB...” --TomT
