Oh really? that would great, he's practically building a power amplifier that would be perfectly matchable with the the D1. Do you know if it will be released anytime soon?

It's a tube amp for headphones and a tube/SS mix power amp that produces 30x2 watts for speakers. He's told me that the pre-production unit is almost done. I asked him about synergy and he said it's a good match. Even has the same case as the D1.

Wait, help me understand, maybe I'm too excited...he's going to produce a stuff with the same case as the D1, that has a tube/SS amp (means hybrid?) and a tube headphone amp, in the same case?
How many bucks will it cost?

Yea, hybrid power amp and full tube headphone amp in the same black case (same size and dimensions) as the D1. I'm told that it will cost less than the D1 but don't quote me on that. The beta version needs to be built and ready, then tested, then if any issues are present they will be fixed and then if everything is ok, I think he will start getting a batch produced. I don't know how long that takes though.

Has anyone replaced the caps and noticed any SQ difference?

I return and I'm in need of anyone's help:

I wish to use my D1's tube pre-out and add a speaker amp into there to power my paradigm atoms (and add a 8'' sub in the future). Any suggestions under $400 (used is perfectly acceptable)?

NAD C326BEE, Marantz PM6003, Cambridge Audio 640A, or any good vintages. Don't fall into the dark side (e.g. Sony. Sorry, no offense)!

Ryan is releasing an amp in the same case as the D1 meant to compliment the D1. It should be available the middle of the month.

Keep an eye out for it.

news to me, where did u hear about this?
post #104 of 735
An email from Ryan

Hi Scott,

Your old unit has a "loose" soldering joint. After we fix the
soldering joint, everything is fine with your unit.

The new mini amplifier will come out middle of April.

I am glad that you enjoy using our D1, please do let me know if you
have any further question.

Regards and have a nice day!

Ryan

Sure there's difference, but I change quite a lot of caps, I not sure if you just change certain area (like coupling caps only) how would it sound. Also that depends on how you wish it sound, what area you wish to improve.

Check my mod
