Yarland P-100 - Page 6

post #76 of 136
Just wondering for those who emailed how long did it take to get an answer. I talked to Dave today, however since I'm from Canada he asked for shipping info to give me a quote. Do they usually reply fast?

have you heard other chinese tube amp Skylab? for example, little dot II or darkvoice 332/6/7? i want to get a tube amp but just not sure which. i had this on my mind, darkvoice 336 and cayin ha-1a and i really can't decide.

i recommend the Doge 6210. it can drive the K701s very nicely.

I don't suppose there's anyway they'd accept payment by Paypal huh? I just remembered that the money I have been budgeting for a new amp is all in Paypal.

I have the Antique Sound Lab MG HEad OTL mk III, and I do like it's sound better than the Yarland, but right now the ASL amp already has all Electro-Harminix tubes in it, and I am still waiting for my Russian tubes for the Yarland. I will report back on that. But with the stock Chinese tubes, the Yarland sounds good, but the ASL sounds better. Still, don't let that dissuade anyone from buying the Yarland - it costs less than the ASL, and it's very good, even with the stock tubes (for those who are not into tube-rolling, which I completely understand).

Skylab, where the big big scheme of things do you put the Yaland compared to the Singlepower? In other words, how much better than the Yarland do you think the Singlepower amp is in your opinion?
post #86 of 136
The sound of my non-SLAM Singlepower is pure tube seduction - very lush, warm, and romantic. That means it suits some headphones better than others. So to say it sounds "better" is hard, although I think it does overall. You have to look at the headphone as well as the amp.

Thanks Skylab. You just saved me $350 as I was just about to try the Yarland. I like the ASL MG Head mkIII as well. It is no longer the flavor of the month but still a good amp for the money. I find it to also be quiet compared to other amps like the Ming Da 66.

Hey Skylab,I think it would be best to refrain for judging the Yarland until it reaches peak performance.I mean you've only had it three days or so.Also your changing of all the tubes makes your upcomming review a little spotty.I think people need an accurate review with stock tubes in place to really make a good assessment as to the value of it .What do you think?

Totally agree. The stock tubes are back in, and I have been breaking it in for 4 days straight. After about 150 hours I'll really listen to it critically, and by then hopefully the Russian tubes will be here, and then I'll make the switch, and then listen again

Great,looking forward to your review.P.S.give the tubes a rest every now and then.
