NuForce HAP-100 High Performance Preamp and Headphone Amplifier (Black) Reviews

HeadphoneAddict

Very nice mid-priced Preamp Headphone amp with 4 RCA inputs plus variable output RCA jacks. Vs only amps in the $600 price range it would be a 5/5

Pros: Excellent Synergy with HD800 headphones, remains versatile with other headphones that demand more power and current output, digital volume pot

Cons: With very sensitive headphones the noise level can intrude during quiet parts AFTER the volume knob goes above 75-80 out of 99 max, slight mid fwd

THIS REVIEW MUST BE PREFACED BY MY DAC-100 IMPRESSIONS, AS THE HAP-100 IS VERY SIMILAR TO IT BUT YET REPRESENTS FURTHER IMPROVEMENT OF THE DAC-100 AMP SECTION IN SEVERAL WAYS AS DESCRIBED BELOW.   See the following link for my DAC-100 impressions in the DAC-100 announcement thread from Sept 2012:   http://www.head-fi.org/t/615533/nuforce-dac-100-news#post_8694564 http://www.head-fi.org/t/615533/nuforce-dac-100-news/15#post_8702583 - update http://www.head-fi.org/t/615533/nuforce-dac-100-news/15#post_8705099 - summary post with everything previously posted in it http://www.head-fi.org/t/615533/nuforce-dac-100-news/30#post_8825445 -...
