Don't worry. It's just a couple of pages. If you don't have it, I can fax it to you or send you a copy. It's no big deal. It just says the obvious.

Oh, I guess if it isn't anything big I can live without it. Unless you really want to send me one. J/P

Just PM me with your address or a fax number and I'll get you a copy of mine. It really won't hold any surprises for you.

I posted my thoughts here before seeing this thread. But my comments/thoughts seem to be pretty much in line with everyone elses. A nice sounding, well built little amp that's just a touch on the warm/forgiving sound.

Before break-in, the bass can be overpowering for my taste. That's indeed forgiving for many poor recordings but annoying with others.
I hope for changes similar to those described by Skylab but, for the time being, my HeadFive is playing well with my K501s. ;-)

That's my experience with the Senn 650. I'm going to let it burn in for a week to see whether this changes. They're really good with Grado/Alessandros.

Does the amp make the K501 sound a great deal more mellow? (so far)

Out of curiosity, what's the length of the supplied power cord?

To be honest, the Headfive is making me think I might actually be able to buy a pair of AKG open headphones and enjoy them

It certainly is more pleasant listening to my HD595's through the Headfive than it was through the Aria.

Ummm...zero inches. There is no supplied power cord.

Ahhhhh, so that's why I couln't find any info on it... --and I guess when I spend two seconds thinking about it, it makes sense given the adjustable voltage.

Apparently successfully so - I've just fetched #13 from the post office, when I drove home from work today. DHL has really become fast within Germany (You shipped it yersterday, didn't you?).

First impression: Solid. Small(er than I thought - nice!). Shiny. Now, where are my spare power cords? Hmmm, I'm just a bit worried about the finish - I fear, one should rather handle the thingy with care to avoid scratches on the case...

Greetings from Hannover!

P.S.: Oh, and Jan, please enlighten me: What does the CA preceeding the serial number mean? Corda Amp? Completely Analogue? California (, here I come)? Couldn't Answer?

Anyone had a chance to compare it with GLite?
Thanks
post #29 of 425
Haven't compared it with my GLite yet. I'm curious about that myself, so I'll try to do it after an appropriate burn-in period (though in my case the two amps are for different locations/uses).

My ultra-early impression of the sound is that I think I'm going to be pleased with it. And I think I like the crossfeed. It's too soon for me confidently to say more than that.

The other important thing fence-sitters should be aware of is that this amp fits very nicely under a Headphile "single" sized headphone stand.

VERY true! Here is where mine is currently:
