post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
What a beauty, somebody convince me not to get this thing! I know it's not the most versitile amp. . . . but. ..but. ..I gotta have it! Seriously, I have read it doesn't match well with the ety 4s's, but has anyone tried it with the 4p's?

Well, you've already got a nice lookin' (and nice sounding I'm sure) system, so I say you get the earmax pro, and get some hd600's while you're at it. It'll be a completely different sound from the rs-1's, and then if the ety's don't match up well, you'll still have a great use for it

Where can you buy Earmax pro in USA? An internet search turns up mostly British dealers. I agree this is one sharp umit.

www.audioadvancements.com is the official distributer in North America.

WEll, gulp...I did it! Went through Audio Advancements--the guy there,Hart, seems cool--I expect a good transaction. Flumpus I completely agree with your reasoning--in fact its the exact argument I gave my girlfriend as she rolled her eyes in dismay After her little act she curtly said "get it" and walked off. So now it looks like i am going to have to pay Jan Meier a visit! YEee hawwww

I bought the EarMax Pro about a year ago and i have never looked back. It's sound signiture is pure tube nirvana. Warm and musical, the Pro out performs my other headphone amps in spades.

I don't think you could make a better choice!!

Did you do any tube changes, what are your findings. Also what
are the approx dimensions?

How long did it take to get your unit once you placed order?

I have not rolled the tubes on my Pro, I like the way it sounds stock. I will wait for these tubes to be replaced and then go with the Sylvania Golds that Markl likes so much.

Dimensions (W x D x H) :

3.75" x 3.50" x 4.00"

Looks like a little jewel box and has that mellow glow of tubes in the dark.

Took about 2-3 weeks to recieve the amp once I placed my order.

Thanks for the info. One last question, what does the power supply look like? I assume there is a remote power supply unit
because of the small size.

Do you feel the Earmax is noticeably superior to the cheaper
Antique Audio MG Head or Musical Fidelity X-Can II?

You mean that?

The Earmax is a completely different animal than the lower cost amps. There are no response spikes or dips and the sound is balanced and weighted across the board.

El Sweeto!

Thanks that is just what I was looking for.......Is that your unit? Do you also use stock tubes or have you rolled?

Mine was black. I tried some NOS Russian Military 6922's in place of the stocks and they provided a nice increase in resolution while not being any brighter. The 12AT7 made the biggest difference by far. I can attest to the awesome bass of the Sylvania Gold Brand tubes. Get some and strap on your seatbelt.

Sum B, just out of curiosity, how much Approx. are the tubes you mentioned? I'll likely stick with the stock tubes at least for a little while, i am sorta blowing my budget with this not to mention hd600's are higher on my to do list than rolling over the tubes.

i had a X-Cansv2 prior to the EMP. yes. significant improvement. the x-canv2 was nice, but very dry and lack in dynamic when compared to the EMP. when i got the EMP, it just sounded like music,

the XCv2 was a big improvement than no amp. but the EMP is another big step. EMP excels in all categories when compared to the XCv2

i probably have the same tubes as SumB. Sylvania Gold + russian 6922 from upscale audio. the upgrade was around $100. i'd say run in the old tubes first before you roll.
