Thanks for the pix, Kurt! I love the design of the Headmaster... I think it's the most attractive headphone amp on the market.

Damn...that is one mighty fine lookin' amp. Is the entire body made of metal? Or is some of that silver-painted plastic?

According to my manual it's all machined aluminum. No plastic crap here!

Re: Ordering HeadMaster from the UK

Hi all,

I've ordered stuff from Stone Audio and Signals - both are reliable sources.

From what I know, the HeadMaster is available in non-remote and remote form. The remote form is used as the pre-amp to their "mini" hi-fi system.

I liked the HeadMaster too and couldn't really choose between it and the EarMax Pro.

does anyone have any information about the rest of the system that matches the headmaster? There's a CD player, tuner and amplifier that match it, and I can't find info on any of them.

The link I posted above to Stone Audio UK has entire Sugden "Bijou" line which Headmaster is part of. Also show
Sugden "Masterclass" line which is their highend gear.

That amp looks sweet. I will pick one up when I can find it at a reasonable price.

thanks!

The review was pretty cool. The only thing that would make it better for me was if the Melos SHA-1 was included in the comparisons

Anyone have any experience with both the Headmaster and the SHA-1?

The headmaster seems a bit out of my range but it's nice to want things

The Melos SHA-1 goes for half the price as the headmaster, but yeah, I'd love to see a comparison.

I ordered my HeadMaster from Signals. The guy there phoned Sugden and asked if they could send him one without the remote as he had none in stock at the time (except a remote free demonstrator). They said they had stopped production of the remote free version, and could only send him one of the new ones. I ended up with the demo unit for £430 (that's with VAT knocked off too ).

Sigh.. if only the Headmaster had dual output connectors like the Headroom amps, then it will be perfect!
