HeadAmp pico Slim Portable Amp

HeadAmp pico Slim Portable Amp

“ Justin and HeadAmp have done it again. The Pico Slim sounds awesome, and the amp is tiny tiny tiny. I love the digital volume control. The build quality is solid. Did I already say that it's tiny? Custom leather carrying case is an awesome touch for the anal bunch. Sound is very balanced and open. ” --socrates63

HeadAmp Blue Hawaii SE Electrostatic Amp

HeadAmp Blue Hawaii SE Electrostatic Amp

“ About having to wait a while to get it is not that bad because I ordered mine August (1987) and it finally arrived yesterday (07/08/2012)... I got the Alps RK50 upgrade with it. Only joking I ordered it last year because I was only 5 in "87" but anyways waiting a year isn't that bad because it's here now (it actually came 3 days early). It's not that long to wait at all and in the mean time...” --Snake Eyes

HeadAmp GS-1 Headphone Amp/Pre-Amp

“ HeadAmp GS-1 – A Forgotten Treasure   So after hemming and hawing for several months about picking up a solid state amp to compliment my Woo Audio WA22, I finally made the jump. I was looking for a solid stage amp in the $700-$1200 price range. Amps I considered were the Violectric V200, Corda Classic, Audio gd Phoenix, SPL Auditor, Burson HA160, and HeadAmp GS-1.   Having a...” --MacedonianHero

HeadAmp pico Portable Amp

HeadAmp pico Portable Amp

“ I primarily use the Pico at work to listen to CDs and for that it does an excellent job.  Occasionally it's used amp-only with a rockboxed iMod or H140.  In all cases it is a solid performer.   The USB DAC is the main reason people buy it but the amp circuit is no slouch either.  The soundstaging is great, notes are sharp and clear.  Some people call it warm, I don't find it as such.  It may...” --itsborken

HeadAmp Pico Power portable headphone amplifier

HeadAmp Pico Power portable headphone amplifier

“   One of the well-known disadvantages of portable amps has always been, simply put, a lack of power available, being that they are limited to using batteries. While with in-ear monitors and more easy-to-drive headphones this isn't such a problem, it limits their capabilities when it comes to either high-impedance headphones (which sound best with amps that can consistently swing a...” --Currawong

Emotiva mini-X a-100

“This review is based on matching the Mini X with Hifiman He-500 Headphones.     You may be reading this review, unsure what to make of this Amp, asking how can a cheap sub $200 amp offer the power needed for an expensive Headphone such as the Hifiman He-500?  If you have done your homework you will find this is the stereo amp everybody is...” --fluidz

HeadAmp pico USB DAC/Amp

HeadAmp pico USB DAC/Amp

“ I've been using the Pico Amp/DAC (purchased used) in my office for the last few months as a DAC and also as a portable solution when I travel.  It never ceases to amaze me just how well it does in both roles and just how flexible it is in general.  It sounds great and I can't think of another piece of gear that I own or have owned that represents better value for the $$.  It also says...” --n_maher

HeadAmp GS-X Headphone Amp/Pre-Amp

HeadAmp GS-X Headphone Amp/Pre-Amp

“ An excellent amp; mostly used with AKG K1000s here. SQ is superb.  The downside is it easily exposes flaws in source and recorded material due to it's accuracy.  It benefits from a balanced rig.  If you want to notice what is in the music you've not heard before, this is the amp for you. ” --itsborken

HeadAmp Gilmore Lite

HeadAmp Gilmore Lite

“ This was a great starter amp when it was still in production.  Even used, the value is exceptional as a very detailed SS single ended amp.  Takes one SE input, provides loop out connection.  High quality build; Justin's attention to detail is great.  Surprising how small it is compared to the sound it puts out, in the realm of Amb's M3.   The amp is designed around Kevin Gilmore's dynalo,...” --itsborken
