post #76 of 827
Is it true that the amplifier is born here:
Shenzhen Shanling Digital Technology Development Co., Ltd.

I hope that it is true - Shanling production line is superb - small company could not afford to buy such machines and technology.

Yes - Jan has been having Shanling build his designs for quite some time now. Jan does all the design work, but Shanling does the manufacturing.

me2, So is there any pre-order offer?? :P
post #80 of 827
I was first

Seriously - I think that there is no pre-order.
post #81 of 827
I'm interested in pre-order offers as well. Am serisouly considering these as my next amp for the DT990/600.

Considering this amp with the T1. Unless I can convince myself to buy the Phoenix.
post #83 of 827
For UE consumers price for Phoenix with shipping and Tax'es is 100% higher than for Corda Concerto with shipping and tax.

No sense in getting the Phoenix for the T1's unless you plan to re-terminate the T1's for balanced. The Concerto sounds better in single ended.

Is the concerto far behind the decware tube amp you have in SQ?

They do sound different. I prefer the Decware, but I wouldn't say the Concerto is far behind at all - just different. The Decware is also a bit of a chameleon, depending on what tubes you use in it.

I asked this in the T1 thread but no one answered. Have you tried a balanced T1? I wonder if it's worth going with a balanced amp with the T1. I have a balanced HD650. So naturally I would like a balanced T1. But if the gain is small then it might not be worth it? Then the Concerto would be the way to go I guess.

I personally have not heard a balanced T1, no, and I have no plans at all to balance mine. All mu tube amps are single ended.
