First production units!  We are testing them to make sure that there are nothing that we missed when we are translating the prototype to production.  Enjoy! :)

Note that the transformer is now plugs in with two new boards at the back of the unit. :)  This is not just throwing a few upgrade parts on a already good amp, but pretty much a total upgrade of the original. :)

The board that costs us quite a bit of time to have it done properly. :)

The new RCA sockets, it solidly constructed and it performed well (I believe it is also used on other fairly expensive audio equipments, but I can't recall the exact brand at the moment).

 

 

 

Enjoy, will keep everyone updated as soon as we have more. :)

Very nice looking amp. What is the cost.

post #110 of 143

$450USD + $40 shipping for North America/Europe, less for Asia/Oceania, more for Africa and Central/South America.

 

 

Thanks

For those who are concerned about a naked transformer causing interference, well, please rest assured that it is not going to happen.  EI transformers does produce massive amount of interference even when fully enclosed with iron cladding (original HA-006), but when switched to a well made toroidal transformer, the magnetic emission is very well controlled, and easily directed away from any sensitive components and circuits.

 

 

Thanks

Any success in trouble shooting for the noise source in your home?  I've personally find that a lot of the switching power supply (notebook adapter, lightweight wall warts and more) can inject a lot of noise into the power circuit, and sometimes you can even hear your neighbor starting up their washing machine or air conditioners.

 

 

Thanks

Ya it was definitely less when I plugged directly into the wall... I did try many outlets throughout the house and had no luck. Some were better than others though. Most I wouldn't get noise when I first plugged in and turned on, but after about ~5 minutes I would get either small hiss or kind of a weird flapping buzz noise. I'm not surprised though, this house is over a hundred years old! Anyway, I hope the unity gain on the ++ I'm getting will solve the problem.

Yes!  Everything had fallen into place, and all pre-order HA-006++ had been packed and will be shipped out within the hour.

 

The pre-order special will now be removed and will be returned to normal. :)

 

 

At the moment, 3x and 11x gain models are in stock and ready for immediate shipment, 1x gain will also be in stock in a couple of days.

 

 

Thanks

So I think I've decided on picking up a HA-006+ but i just cant seem to decide on a nice DAC to pair it with. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. Looking at around $300-$400 and it will be running through my computers optical. Thanks.

I love the DacMagic ($429 USD) - awesome connectivity options (incl 2 opticals) - also VDac ($299) is a winner many say.

It's USB but the Pico DAC is incredible and pairs very very well with my HA-006+

Thanks for the help guys. Gonna be doing alot of forum browsing tonight...

post #119 of 143

in the 300-400 range the gamma2 is an option as well.

How does the pre-amp function work on these? When you plug in your headphones does it switch off the pre-amp outs, or are they both always live?

- thanks.
