Ray Samuels THE SHADOW

Ray Samuels THE SHADOW

“ 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

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

Ray Samuels Emmeline "The Black Bird" SR-71A Portable Headphone Amp

“ 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

Ray Samuels P-51 Mustang

Ray Samuels P-51 Mustang

“ 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

Ray Samuels Audio Protector

Ray Samuels Audio Protector

“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

Ray Samuels Audio F-35 Lightning

Ray Samuels Audio F-35 Lightning

“RSA F-35 Lightning   HISTORY:  My first portable headphone amplifier was the Ray Samuels Tomahawk in 2007.  I needed it because my Shure E4c were not very efficient and needed more power to wake them up or energize them, and my Sennheiser HD600 were much more demanding and needed significantly more power than my iPod could supply - without the amplifier the...” --HeadphoneAddict
