Single ended I prefer the Goldpoint in general, but it depends on the combination. The DX1000 I prefer plugged into the Goldpoint, the GS1000 I prefer with the RPX-100.
There is never a simple answer, because there is always personal preference and synergy....
Hi there, could it be that since the Goldpoint is more extended it is a better match w/ the DX1000 which has IMO an slight rolled off top end? Under the same toke the Grado cans tend to have an energetic treble which would make the RPX-100 a better match due to its warmer presentation?

Just speculating, thanks.

I just went to eBay and sent an email to the Goldpoint Store. Is this the right way to get in touch with them? Thanks.

Not quite that straightforward. It has also to do with better control of the bass irt the midrange with the DX1000. The lower midrange of the RPX-100 sounds a bit "thick" which doesn't become the DX1000.

Recently I got a mail from Arn saying:

I bet you will have a hard time finding anything you like
listening to more than this one! FET input this time. Clear,
detailed highs - and robust, fully formed, accurate bass.
A really completely pleasant listening experience - and
worth much more than I will be asking at this time, in my opinion.

The new PC boards (third and final re-design) will be ordered in
a day or two, will be here in two weeks and be built up about
one week after that.

Got a similar email from Arn more than a week ago. Felt excited.

Looks like I am very likely the owner of the first "revised" Headphone Pro. But I did ask Arn to take his time - as I want ultimate reliability and stability from him. We started talking about the Headphone Pro back in February this year, so a couple more weeks will be absolutely fine with me ;-)

Guys, I went to the website (http://redirectingat.com/?id=475X763...m%2Findex.html ) and could not find the headphone amp. Where should I go? Thanks.

I understand Arn from Goldpoint pulled the listing sometime ago. I am pretty sure he will relist the Headphone Pro once the production batch comes in and works fine. The only thing that I am not sure is whether he wants to up the price considering the improvements of the new version over the original one - based on what he said.

The Headphone Pro listing is back on the Goldpoint site. I will be interested to see any impressions.

Great, my wallet is dead! I just noticed that being 12V ac it could be powered by my Little Pinkie PSU I use with the Musical Fidelity X-Can V2. The Little Pinkie is a 30VA at up to 2.5 amp linear PSU, wonder if it would improve the sound of the Goldpoint further.

I too am wondering with a higher grade 12V AC supply will help too. As I am in the 220V a.c. region I would most likely have to source one for my Headphone Pro.
