Thanks for the info, Deuterium. You are a lucky bloke to have one on the way.

Ouch! That's $11K.
It does look very nice though, but a hum, as slight as it is, on a this expensive machine? Then again, it could've been the iPod.

Edit: Nevermind, I thought it was Yuan rather than Yen, my mistake.

Right, I mistook it for Yuan/RMB. That changes things, looks like a very nice thing for it's cost!

Thanks, I am looking forward to getting the piece. I am going to put it into the primary rig, although this may require me switching headphones from the Senns. I am wrestling with what cans will make a good match for this amp.

So who else has taken the plunge and ordered one?

Me. Order placed, deposit paid, and standing by for a delivery date. Last word was that Mr. Yamamota is trying to catch up with demand, and delivery will be advised when available. Anyone have a firm delivery date?

I ordered direct from Japan(works out very close to US retail price)for a 240V version. Mr Yamamoto stated delivery time as around 7 weeks for mine. I guess publicity here and the positive 6 Moons review will have stimulated a few orders.

I'm considering ordering one. If Srajan was really impressed with the W1000 I wonder how well the L3000 would pair up. Too bad the finish doesn't match.

Please order one and let us know!

Or, you could loan me your L3000s and I will let you know how they sound with the HA-02.

Bump

So has anyone received their HA-02 yet?

Thread Starter 
I heard from the US distributor (Venus Hi-Fi) yesterday:

"Regarding the HA-02 wait list, yes, Mr. Yamamoto wound up having to "trash"
all of the cherry chasses for the second full production run of this
headphone amp due to a problem with the silk screening. It was a minor
problem, but he's a perfectionist, and was unwilling to let even a minor
blemish go through. The bad news was that this has delayed all orders
placed after mid-November by about three weeks."

I have no idea if any orders have shipped so I don't know if this will effect members here but it sounded like it would.

I'm eager to hear one with PS-1's in comparison to my HP4.


The A-08S I have is just beautiful. It's completely out of place in my apartment with the inflatable boat and outboard motor in the living room.
