Thanks for the information. I thought production was further on than less than ten units in well more than one year.

Wow, sounds like he needs some help to get this project done!
post #108 of 5869
Justin told that he has hired helpers. I hope this will speed it up!

Elephas - that's quite an Esoteric stack you've got. I'm curious how much of a sonic difference the clock makes.

Who made the amp on the right side of the picture?

Justin from Headamp made it - it's called the Aristaeus. it is, afaik, a mutation of the HEV90, and is considered one of the best amps for the HE90

Thanks for the information. It's a nice looking amp.

Not a mutation at all. Same basic amp circuitry but with a far better PSU, better build quality and parts used.

Sounds like a mutation to me

Are you saying that a cheap switching power supply is not worthwhile in a $5,000+ amplifier!?!?

Switchers should never be used in audio so no. They are a fact of life in digital gear but their use in amps makes no sense to me at all.

Jhellow,

Have you received your BHSE yet? I understand you were #10 on the list. Has anyone else lower on the list received their unit yet?

Nicely Done Elephas! Thanks for the pics. Hardly seems fair since a human can only use 1 pair of headphones at a time , but still, mad props!

Elephas,

Who makes the stand that's on top of the wood console table? And are you happy with it?

No, and no response from Justin since Feb. 8.
