Designing a headphone amp around a particular op-amp potentially maximises the potential of a particular chip IMO.
Agree!! much more finicky than other OP amps. Wise choice norm, Most people (myself included) do not know how to check for DC offset, or troubleshoot an oscillating condition.

Im eagerly waiting...

Someone needs to tie Andrea's hands behind her back to keep her from buying all these portable amps!

Now I'm interested in a Go-Vibe V5 too...if only it had a charging circuit tho...

In Italian Andrea is a man's name...

The COOLEST feature of the Go-Vibe V5 is that it's a 3-Channel design. I've been the fantastically lucky owner of a 3-Channel Classic for a few years now, and the 3-Channel bufferless design is such a gorgeous step up from the two channel design that I'm really delighted that a bunch of you will finally be able to enjoy what I've been enjoying. And with the surface mount optimization for a high current opamp hand-tweaked to Norm's ear - why, I couldn't help myself. Like many of us, I'm waiting to hear back with the final details of how to place an order for this latest beauty. Man, O' Man!!! What a day!!!

Edit: Norm's usual speedy reply gave me the details needed to place an order. I'm in the build queue. Now, I sit back and savor the palpable anticipation while waiting for an early sonic Christmas to arrive. I'm rippling with expectancy to hear how the Go-Vibe V5 will pair with the d-jays I pre-ordered. What a GREAT time to be into headphone audio!!!

Will the gain be adjustable with this amp? I guess a better question is, how will this amp work with high sensitivity IEMs like the UE-10pro?

Glad to see you back Go-Vibe.

A couple of questions regarding the Go Vibe 5

1) Will the battery continue to discharge even when it is not been used - e.g. do you have to take the battery out when you've finished?

2) How do these portable amps work with a full size (non portable) CD player.

3) Curious is the headphone and input socket 1/8" 1/4" ?

Basically I'm looking for a cheapish amp to use *occasionally* with my home CD player and this looks like a suitable choice to use with some Beyer DT311 (oldish 'phones).

1.) Shouldn't drain my V4 don't

2.) You'll need to purchase an RCA (streo) to 1/8"mini (like this one there are cheaper, just using that as an example.)

3.) As with the other Go-Vibes I am going to say that is 1/8" (mini)

As for using it with your CD player, I would say this should be a fine amp (having not herd it my self I can only guesstimate) but considering the V4 I have and the specs listed I would say you would be a happy camper with this amp.

Curiosity killed the cat......

Good news and happy to see you back Norm.

Amicalement

PS.
Realy sorry to learn the situation about your parents that way. At times I hate Head-Fi....For what its worth our thoughts are with you Norm.

With previous versions you set the gain when you place the order. A gain of 2 might be fine.

I wouldn't be so certain about getting a gain set...per Norm's thread "One design - no options - one price - $75US + shipping.

IMO the exciting thing about this new Go-Vibe is that, judging from the design, it would promise to match an LM6172 equipped PINT in performance, at a lower cost.
