“I knew the quality of the MF gear for the money and had heard the X-can V-3 yrs ago, I just wasn't into headphones back a few years. So in 2009 I bought a perfect used X-can V3 off of Audiogon and was somewhat pleased with the sound that it produced with my Sen.-HD650s....right out of the box, but knew that the stock (crap)6922 tubes had to go. I installed a NOS pr of my Amperex 7308 SQ grade...” --9pintube
“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
“ This is a warm sounding amp and really smooth with enough power to drive 2 headphones simultaneously. As Lan647 was saying that it could drive 2 high end headphones without a problem, I can drive my beyerdynamic t1 & the sennheiser hd800 with ease at the same time. Pretty neat feature if you wan't to compare 2 headphones. I've compared these with the nuforce icon hdp and it...” --dolor
“I find it difficult to get used to the sound of this little amp. In comparison with the amp I used for years, the headphones-out my old faithfull Marantz PM7200 the sound is superior in many ways. There's more depth, a cleaner, more fluid tonality, better layering of instruments and finally no more humming/buzzing of the transformer, the main reason I got this amp. But the sound isn't as...” --Mink
“The other day I found out I've been using this amp as my main set for over 2 years now. Suffice it to say that it has earned it's right for a small review. Like with cars, I find that one can often get a hint of the country a piece of musical equipment was made in and the V8P is no exception in that regard. I find it fits in with brand names like Cambridge Audio, Meridian and NAD among...” --Bosstooned

“ You hear what you want without cranking up your stereo receiver, how nice is that? Maybe if I had weaker headphones I wouldn't need this, but I have 3 pairs that starve with in my receiver. I turn the volume on my stereo to 75% for average listening on headphones and I could handle 100% on some albums. So, if you've been through the stereo and want to go big, this is good clean sound for a...” --JamesHuntington
