The pic is taken on this years CES in LV.

For $400 it looks really attractive.

I'll have to get one and compare to my other low cost Chinese amps, which are all tops (with non-Chinese tubes though).

That amp is pretty plain looking. Very un-shanling like.

Different model number - not the PH3000 amp.

the difference seems to be tubes in the PH300 and SS for the PH100

Sango,

Yes, I briefly listened to it with my ATH-W5Ks. My recollection is that it was a clear sounding amp with, IMO, a sound more akin to SS. Not bad or good, just my observation. Build and workmanship very good. For USD 400, I think it's OK VFM-wise.

Vcoheda - You're right indeed re: the new look . . . not the typical garish Shanling. They seem to have made a distinct shift towards a more conservative styling as they're aware that the past design aesthetic invited calls of style over substance - they are located about 2 Km from my factory and word gets around. Though never a big fan of the Shanling look in past, I have to say that the newer items are much more appealing in person than pictures would suggest.

Cheers,
Garry

Factory?? ;p What kind of factory.
post #14 of 56
Icarium,

Factories in China - who would have thought it ?????????

We manufacture industrial powers supplies for telecom / server farm / mobile power stations, etc.

Lots and lots of kit coming out of this area - I am literally in the belly of the
beast of Chi Hi Fi- Shanling, Cayin, Eastern Electric, Raysonic, Melody, PrimaLuna, MingDa, etc., etc. . . . not to mention all the OEM's for a lot of the US / European labels as well.

On the front lines for the cause of HeadFi in lower China , I must now bid you adieu !

Cheers,
Garry

Shanling PH300 on its way to me!

I just ordered this amp along with the Grado GS 1000s (Silver Dragon V2 recable) from Moon Audio; I'll try to get some thoughts up here when I've received it and gotten into it a little.

I would love some suggestions about what other tubes I could use or may want to try with this amp. This is the first tube amp I've bought (I'm such a newbie when it comes to tubes) so any ideas (or warnings) will be appreciated.

I've traded in my RS-1 and RA-1 to upgrade to this combo, so I'll try to post some thoughts on the cans as well.
