post #106 of 169
Too bad this guide doesnt say which amps use tubes, or where to get one of those nifty tube amps in a altoid tin.

Headsave Lives?!?

Google has a link to http://members.shaw.ca/storage_2/headsave/ that makes it appear that there is renewed life for Headsave. There was all also a thread on an other site that indicated he had come back at the above address. (http://ipastudio.com/forums/showthre...=hybrid&t=1199)

Maybe Headsave wasn't "completety dead; just mostly dead" as they said in the Princess Bride. Let's hope.

The proper link is http://www.go-vibe.com - norm was only down for a couple months before he set that up I think.

Many things on this list are in a dire need of updating. Xin's amp prices are wrong, and headroom is listing all the year-old amps. If this list isn't going to be updated it shouldn't be a sticky any more.

I would love to see a nice neat concise list for both portables and normal amps. A simple table - Name (linked if relevant) - price - type(opamp/discrete/tube/etc) - portable (yes/no) - dac (yes/no)

That would be enough to let people know what's out there, then they could investigate the rest. Or perhaps it's time for one of us to start a seperate site like headphonereviews.org.

i e-mailed norm galdano (owner of go-vibe?)

i recieved an auto-response that said...

The go-vibe V4 has sold out.
There are no plans to offer a replacement.
I have a few one-of-a-kind custom headphone amps left:
1) 1 only go-vibe V3.
2) 1 only custom Home-Vibe.
3) 1 only custom compact Home PIMETA.
4) 1 only portable PIMETA in a translucent Serpac case.
Thanks to all who have supported me throughout the past three years. "Good Vibes" and happy listening!

I would be willing to restart this thread and update it periodically if the mods are willing to sticky it. Honestly it's the sort of reference I would like to see more of.

I can personally vouch for product sold at this website as that is the cMoy Variant that I am currently using. I opted for the Penguin Chocolate Mints Model.
It has a real good sound but I wish I had asked him to include the option of a DC Power Jack (preferably one that also recharges).

Turn it up. Turn it up. Turn it up.
This volume booster works with most audio portables and delivers hi-fidelity stereo sound to one, two or three channels. Simply plug your headphones into the volume booster and listen to music, talk radio, audio books or a PC with two others--ideal when traveling by plane, car, bus or train.

Model: 33-1109
Catalog #: 33-1109
Price $21.99

I haven't dabbled into adding an amp to my Rio S50 yet and am about to order up a set of Senn HD 595's and most likely a base level portable amp, but I thought for a few bucks this maybe fun to play with one afternoon...

Anyone here who has tried one for fun?

Bill

I did try one of these for my first Headphone Amp and was very disappointed with the results.
One of the biggest problems was the lack of any kind of volume control on the amp which forces me to control the volume with my head unit.
This is also one of the biggest drawbacks to the boosteroo amp that I saw someone post about as well.
