“ Not only is Ray a great guy to buy from & deal with, he makes an outstanding product. The Shadow is everything he says it is & more. Extremely transparent, it doesn't color the sound at all. It gives your IEM the energy & power they need to spread their wings and FLY. Paired with my Westone 4, which are already pretty damn amazing, it opens them up...” --jamesta
“ I have never used a renown high end Portable Amp before as previously what I had used was Fiio product. Im new to Audiophile Headphone too.... Fiio E7 was my first portable DAC/Amp and i was quite disappointed as I don't feel the "punch" from my music. The overall of the song also seems grey to me. I am using HD650 and it doesnt go well with the can. I was so displeased which...” --Lex Tan
“ I received a loaner of the new Mustang P-51 portable headphone amp from Ray Samuels Audio. The impossibly small Mustang is quite full featured – lithium Ion battery built in, 3 gain settings. Smaller even that the Tomahawk. Same styling as other RSA amps, which is to say a very attractive anodized metal case. The Mustang, according to Ray, can deliver more than 2 times the amount of current...” --Skylab
“ I have had my raptor for two and a half years with no reliabilty issues.The amplifier proper is very compact and lite weight so be aware it does not self anchor itself and is easy to move.The power supply is very substantial and is remotely locatable, it is tethered to the headphone amp by din type connector which securely twists in place on the amp module. The amplifier seems...” --buson160man
“The Protector is billed as the world’s first Balanced Portable amp. I actually know of no other balanced portable amp, so this is a reasonable claim. When used via its balanced output, The Protector phase-splits the input and amplifies the signal in balanced mode. All of the below describes the amp IN BALANCED MODE, using the HifiMan HE-5 and the DT880/600. I did use the amp in single-ended...” --Skylab
“I previously purchased. An Hp P1 and loved it right out of the box. Great amp/dac. Then I decided what the heck. I needed maybe a backup so purchased the Intruder. After I charged it up, it was a disappointment. I seriously thought of sending it back. I paid all this money for this! Now I'm in my mid 60's and I'm sure my hearing might be going bad but I do know what I like and this amp just...” --George2
“ This is NOT a full review, but really just a rating. I have owned The Stealth for quite a while. While one of Ray's older models, it still provides outstanding sound for medium-high impedance headphones, and works exceptionally well as a preamp. It provides 90% of the sound quality as my three times as expensive Cary SLP-05 as a preamp. As a headphone amp, it's a little on the warm and...” --Skylab
“ I must admit, i do not have hard-to-drive headphones but this little amp add nothing! and thas a good thing! Ok it adds power... that gives greater stability thus cleaner sound but soundwise no added coloration is what i meant. I really like RSA Stuff! ” --LTTan
