REVIEW: Einar Sound VC-01i Balanced SS Headphone Amp - Page 2

post #16 of 88

The amp's color is a kind of copper. Very nice looking.

Sorry I forgot to post the website in the review, it's here: Einar Sound - I will edit the review.

I was under the impression the amp was made in Canada, but I will confirm with the maker. It's possible it's designed in Canada but made in China. I only know for sure that the company is in Calgary AB.

I would be sure that it is made in China,it would be hard to believe that a Canadian Amp builder would open a Chinese website.
And the price gives it away as well.

I agree this seems likely having seen the Chinese website. But I will get confirmation.

Or designed and built in China.Then imported by a Canadian firm.

I would like to see it go against the LD MKVII.

Many Chinese companies have distributors or importers based in Canada. This may be the case.

So the amp is indeed going to be manufactured in China. The plan for Einar Sound is to market the amp worldwide from their Canada HQ.

Question: What colour is the amp? Is it brown, or are the coffee beans and burlap colouring a black amp?

And yeah, while I can understand the desire to not go parading every last detail of the internals, I'd be interested for some details about what's going on inside.
With the goal to minimize the cost and provide the possibly lowest price, production is going to be assigned to our parnter in China and will be manufactured in China too. The production is going to and have to meet our requirement as promised and be in intensive quality control. We will be announcing the warranty policy that won't give any of our customers a chance to mess up with Quality. If you are in somewhere near us and would like to drop by, we are in the downtown Calgary where is convenient to most public transportations. Detailed address and phone number can be found on our website. Should anyone have any further questions regarding to production, sales or technicals, please contact me at email@einaraudio.com. Cheers for a good day, Einar Sound
