Do anyone have experience this headamp? www.divaaudio.com
Seems like a good amp, comparable to Mapletree EAR+ HD2, WA6, etc.
Any input is appreciated.
Sorry to dig out this old thread here.
Greeting from singapore here,i had own the Diva goya headamp for 1 year now,I would say that i am very very happy with the pairing with my AKG headphones which are mainly K240 Monitor,K601,K701 and K701 modded
The pairing suit acoustic,instrumentals,classical and jazz very well to my preference.I am even putting the amp in the same range as amps that are THREE times more costly that the diva headamp.
Some informations on the maker who is Mr.Ts Lim,Lim is a top-shelf harmonica player and was trained as a tenor.He's is also a mahler enthusiat and part of the mahler society of singapore.This also mean that he have ability to know what type of sound preference his stuffs must have.From his preferences,Mr.Ts Lim will then try different components and different ways to build his stuffs in order for it to sound at top notch.The price for the headamp is also cheap compared to many many headamp out there in the market now.(560usd)
Warns Lim "If you don't know about music, you can forget about the sound". That refers to the Confucian mandate of having to know first-hand what music sounds like while mixing and quelling for realistic results.
I have heard a Diva preamp with separate tubed power supply sounding wonderful; loads of micro dynamics and clean transparent treble with full midrange. The guy "upgraded" from a much more expensive mid level Ayre preamp.
I don't like the enclosure design though; color, sticker logo and chrome knob.
