has anyone tried these new amps ? they're a Rudistor's 'cheaper line'.
I guess the W3 is meant to be a competitor to iBasso D10.

well they are going to have to give away more information than that if they want to take D10 customers. ibasso has full disclosure of components; this tells nothing

i'm sure it will sound good if its anything like the rudistor productc, but they seriously need to give more information away; in general people who buy D10 are interested in what is on the inside and even like to be able to alter it.

^X2, they need to provide more info on the DAC and other components.

you're sure right, qusp, but I guess the site is kind of under construction.
I hope so.
otherwise, you're toooooootally right. this kind of things is sometimes disregarded, underestimated, but I agree it is essential in cases like this.

W3 should be bigger than D10 in size. Let wait and see if it a improve D10. W1 look interesting to me.

Somehow It make me think W1 is a clone of SuperMini or other ultra-slim amp and W3 a clone of D10 or Go-Vibe amp/dac...

it's just a guess, but (as an Italian ;-)) I like thinking that Rudi wants to challenge directly the number ones -as iBasso seems to be often considered 'round here.
I think it's not by chance that W3 does the same things as D10 at a very, very similar price (W3's includes worldwide shipping).
unfortunately, I'm afraid Rudi had to have them built in Singapore to be price competitive.

why Singapore? labour cost is expensive here. China will be cheaper.

I have no idea about that. But there is no local made amp in Singapore. Infact, Singapore is one of the most expensive city to live in the world.
channelnewsasia.com - Survey shows Singapore is world's 10th most expensive city

But the countries around the region Singapore is located tend to have a much lower living standard in comparison such as Philippine, Indonesia, Vietnam, etc

Within context, singapore is easier for foreign investment to set up shop.
Low corporate and income tax plus the standard of living is as good as EU but half the price.

I'm just thinking like most tech companies, they just developed the schemetics and design the amp and import the parts and assemble them here and sell it internationally.

So, we know why Rudi Stor has established 'linearossa' in Singapore.
Now we just need someone to try those amps and tell us how they sound

Ok... I guess i see the whole story. It should be another Jaben brand just like Crossroad, Hippo, Go-Vibe... Jaben is the only authorise dealer as far as i know of.
Presenting the New Linearossa Line!

If that is the case, it certainly not built and design in Singapore. Rather it from China or Korea like other Jaben in house brand.

It should sound similar to the Go-Vibe amp/dac line that is sold in Singapore.

Manufacture and labor is better and more refined in Singapore than in China, and the cost is not that far if you demand a decent quality. For mass production China is cheaper. First samples are on the way...
