There is a new portable amp with great design from Headstage: Arrow (199€)
I think it might have a dac....
Anyone with more information?

Looks like a contender for the T4... except for the price.

Looks promising. Almost looks like what the NuForce offering should have been, and what a disappointment that turned out to be.

Lol. Headphonia. No thanks to the price tag as well as their customer service.

Really no interest in this amp from anyone?

I did e-mail them asking for info, but they never got back to me. Not the best sign.

I am definitely interested.
This is the kind of design I have been looking for for years.
First there was only the Xin mini. Lately there are more popping up, like the Nu Force, the iBasso T4 and now this one.

The price does put me off somewhat.

€199 not inc postage is pretty steep. It would have to be very impressive, but i agree, it is a very attractive package.

Have you heard the NuForce? I didn't catch that it would be a disappointment.

I haven't heard the NuForce. Sorry, i didn't mean to sound like i was commenting on the sound quality. From a purely aesthetic/functional point of view it didn't impress me at all. I expected a more intuitive design. But of course that's a totally personal opinion.

I just thought I'd missed something.
I quite like the looks of the new NuForce. You like the looks of the Arrow better?
I also mailed for some more info on the Arrow.

BTW, the price is with VAT.
For the US it should be 17-20% off that price.

Finally got a response!

Hello,

I will add more information about the new amp shortly. The biggest benefit is that it is very thin (0.35 inches or 9mm) and it recharges from USB port. It also has three switches for gain, crossfeed and bass (each three positions) and two input jacks (one on the front and one on the back side). A DAC is not included (it is designed to be as portable as possible).
Best regards
Robert

I got the same mail too an hour ago.
Inputs on the front and the back . I like that.

That guy makes sweet amps. I went through a period when I ran through amps like beer at a frat party and I still miss his lyrix. I think it was among the top ones I'd heard. This arrow looks pretty damn cool and the two level bass boost is definitely a HUGE draw for me.

I mailed Robert again a couple of days ago asking for some more info, but he hasn't responded yet.
