Musical Paradise MP-301

Musical Paradise MP-301

“I purchased a sample of this amp to review. Normally I don’t do that, but in this case I did, for two reasons: 1.I wanted to try a 6V6 based amp, to get a chance to try this type of tube 2.It was CHEAP! Holy poop, is it cheap - $200! The MP-301 is actually transformer-coupled. And indeed, it had no problem driving low impedance headphones. Zero hum at all. It’s surprising enough to find an OTL...” --Skylab

Audio-gd NFB-10ES2 balanced desktop amp/DAC

Audio-gd NFB-10ES2 balanced desktop amp/DAC

“ If Audio-gd is known for anything, it is for invading Head-Fi with a regularly changing series of units consisting of headphone amps and DAC all in one box. Back when a combined amp and DAC meant a severely sonically compromised unit with either a poor DAC or poor amp, Kingwa demonstrated that it was possible to do it with little compromise, but instead provides products where, simply, a...” --Currawong

Yulong D100 MKII

Yulong D100 MKII

“ Let me first say that this is my first Yulong product. And while I've used many Chinese products before, Yulong stands out in its own way.                             The DAC section is wonderful, it just hits exactly where I want it - at least for now, considering my listening preferences (which have a...” --Monir

Burson Audio HA-160D

Burson Audio HA-160D

“     Introduction   I first encountered the Burson HA-160D about six months ago when browsing Mike Ting’s website,Headfonia. Around that time, one of my goals was to get some new headphones to enhance my enjoyment of listening to music. Though I owned, and still do, the Sennheiser HD 25-1, I wanted to upgrade, and I asked Mike for some headphone system recommendations...” --Windsor

Yulong A100 Class A Headphone Amplifier

Yulong A100 Class A Headphone Amplifier

“ http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/535630/review-yulong-a100-headphone-amp   See above link for my detailed review.   In summary: The A100 is to amps what the D100 is to DACs. Very neutral, accurate, and transparent. It's an excellent value for the price. I docked it a star in the "Design" section because it omits balanced ins/outs, which seems odd given the...” --project86

Leben CS-300X

Leben CS-300X

“ The Leben CS300X has made me re-think what's possible from a headphone amp in general, and tube amps in specific.  While it has a highly musical, engaging sound, it's not the least bit tubey or syrupy - in fact it's astonishingly neutral and transparent.  Due to its being push-pull, and transformer-coupled, it works well with a wide variety of headphones.  It drove my LCD-2, DX1000, T1,...” --Skylab

Little Dot I+

Little Dot I+

“The I+ from Little Dot is an excellent tube hybrid that offers much more than its sub-$150 price tag would suggest.   This is the first piece of head-fi equipment that I've owned twice. Bought one from a fellow Alabamian head-fier a couple months ago and had it for a little more than a month before deciding to sell as my "best" pair of cans weren't benefitting as much from amping. Within...” --JoeDoe

Woo Audio WA 6 SE

Woo Audio WA 6 SE

“ I recently had the opportunity to listen to WA6SE on demo for 2 hours at the comfort of my home and this is my take on it. The DAC is DACport and the headphone used is LCD-2 Rev 2 if anyone is interested to know. The actual amp consists of 2 separate units; one is the actual tube amp while the second unit is a separate power supply to the amp. The 2 units would then be connected via a...” --Joe-Siow

Decware csp-2

Decware csp-2

“ I was able to convince Steve Deckert, head Zen of Decware, to send me his Zen CSP2 headphone preamp for review. While the CSP2 is also marketed as a preamp, I did not try it as such. It does have 2 inputs, and trim pots for the preamp outs. The CSP2 is an OTL (Output Transformer-Less) design. Manufacturer's website: DECWARE / High Fidelity Engineering Co. The CSP2 is housed in a nice wood...” --Skylab

Schiit Lyr

Schiit Lyr

“   This review was done at the request of fellow newbie Head-Fier Chgm.   Finally, after a long burn-in period and long listening sessions with both amps, I'm ready to give my impressions. This is specifically to test out the Schiit Lyr and the Alo Pan Am with the LCD 2 Rev.2. and songs that CHGM specifically requested (plus a few of my own additions as well).  ...” --NZheadcase
