REVIEW SUMMARY: A ranking of 32 tube and tube/hybrid headphone amps - Page 3  

post #31 of 482
Thanks for all your hard work, we would never get to hear all of these amps. This list of reviews helped me to make a more informed choice in my price range.
I think you deserve more than one beer!

Hi skylab,

My first post here. I'm torn between Emmeline II The Raptor and Decware CSP2. Having heard both amps, can you give me the difference and similarities between the two? My music preference is Jazz and male/female vocals, small jazz ensemble, and occasional R&B. Please help me choose between the two. Source would be the Meridian 508. And what will be a better choice of headphone from your chosen amp? I'm leaning towards the Grados or the Senns whatever might suite the amp of your choice.

Thanks.

Both amps are excellent. I'm sure you would enjoy them both. The CSP-2 is less expensive, and in the same league sonically, so perhaps that might impact your decision.

In either case we are talking about OTL amps and Grados are not a good choice due to their low impedance. Senns or Beyers would be great choices.

Thanks Skylab. Much appreciated.

Thanks Skylab, your hard work means a lot to many of us (though my wife may dispute that if I want to purchase another amp!- a definite possibility after I go through your reviews).

Skylab have you ever "tried" the Ming Mc66?
Theorically it would be better than the Ming in the list, is that right?

Actually I know nothing about the Ming Mc66 - and I couldn't find it on Pacific Valve's website...

Thanks Skylab!
I will keep an eye on this thread to see if you get to audition the WA6 SE.
I would love to see how it stacks up against those other amps!

Skylab, I just wanted to throw another thank you into the mix. These cumulative reviews with personal ranking are immensely helpful in the shopping process for many and I can only imagine just how much it takes in personal resources to get it together.

That said I just ordered a tube amp not even mentioned on your list lol : ). I had a credit to use, otherwise it would have been one of the best amps I could afford from your list. Best Wishes!
