“ I actually decided to buy the Apex Peak/Volcano, I do not regret purchasing this amplifier even though a loaner program was available for sometime, although I don't know if it was still going on when I bought the amp. For headphones I have the Audez'e LCD-2 and Ultrasone Edition 10. I only used the ED10 very briefly as I actually prefer the sound of the LCD-2 to the ED10s. ...” --Wedge
“I was fortunate enough to be the first on Todd's Teton loaner list. Here is my take on the Teton. Conclusion is at the end if you want to jump down. Headphones: I tried the Teton with LCD-X, HD800, HE-500, and FitEar ToGo 334. I used the LCD-X the most because I had them for only a few weeks and it has hogged the Teton. Most of my impressions will be based on...” --hop ham

This, a new position with increased responsibilities, and the trials and tribulations of being a new home owner in this economy...” --4N6
“This amp was my first audiophile amplifier purchase, bought second-hand off Midnightwalker. I wanted a neutral-sounding amp with an integrated DAC for convenience which would allow me to use it both as a desktop amp/dac and as part of a portable rig. I used this with the MacBook Air using the integrated DAC at a desktop and am currently using it with the Aedle VK-1 and M-Audio Q40, paired...” --BucketInABucket
“ Starting Up Todd The Vinyl Junkie offered me the opportunity to review the latest offering from Apex, the “Arête” headphone amp. Which of course I jumped at – it looks like a nice design, and I had thought very highly of the Apex Peak I reviewed last year. The Arête is really as much small pre-amp as it is headphone amp. It has three line inputs and a line...” --Skylab
