One more thing.. The instructions state not to change headphones without turning off the amp?? Why?? I never heard this before.. Just a precaution? I did it 3 times.. Not reading the instructions, cause I never heard this before?? I did however, turn down the volume to zero before changing headphones..
|Hello high quality audio aspirants!
The totally good news is as follows:
1) This latest Goldpoint Headphone Pro headphone amp is truly awesome!
As you may know, we have done major revisions:
a) Now a different, one per channel, FET input opamp instead of
a single dual op-amp with bi-polar transistor inputs.
b) Completely different shunt regulated power supply - no interstage
transformer so no hum - but unexpectedly, extraordinarily great sounding.
c) Now using 2 Amp wall adapters - (used to use 1A).
This does make a difference - especially for crisp, "distinct" bass notes...
d) A new, (small) custom heatsink.
e) The sound quality you will be hearing now is remarkable - and I expect
you all to remark about it...
2) The batch of 16 I was working on is essentially finished
and individual units are awaiting shipping.
