Headstage Arrow HE: Reviews, Impressions, Perceptions & Sensations - Page 163

post #2431 of 3052

I can confirm the interference is much worst that with 3G version.

Anyway, can be solved by using airplane mode:)

Issue also mentioned in this test:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/585786/multi-portable-amp-thread-12-amps-reviewed-shonyun-306-added-10-03-12

But I can feel what is improved: more Transparency, Dynamics, Resolution, Detail...with slight (little) additional Bass.

I also notice sometimes the imbalance, but not above my tolerance.

I wonder how this can beimproved on Portaphile 627.

But for me too much on negative side:

for me at least twice higher the price: 549USD ~ 420EUR (+27% import tax!), vs 250EUR for the Arrow 4G (but was 210 EUR for me as refurbished 3G ungraded),

Very whort battery life, no USB charging, no auto power on/off...but anything like bass/treble/cross no need for me.

glad for you - let's hope mine will arrive soon - i am also in Europe (London , UK) so i don't know what is going on

My upgraded Arrow just arrived with the USB DAC Cable by DHL Express:)

Also with 2 small jack cable (maybe gift?).

Anyway I will think more than twice about the upgrade for Arrow 5G ... Maybe better to buy new and sold the old, just after arrived.

impedance switch will be replaced with treble boost. I sent my 3g for repair but it came back already as 4G so not sure how much for an upgrade.

can someone tell me if robert has changed e-mail in the last month or so ?

 

maybe that's why he hasn't answered to me....

 

3 months gone by and still waiting for my arrow amp upgrade

Hey guys, my Arrow 4G arrived and I'm sort of confused... This might sound sooo noobish (I'm not huge on portable amps) but what does the Cross switch do? On the site, it opens a foreign language PDF and ya... So far, it sounds really nice, a huge upgrade from an E11. Dat mids and treble...

its a crossfeed switch

switch 0 is no crossfeed

switch one is from left to right

are anyone tell me how about the headphonia's service?

i plan to have a arrow amp but i read lot about "terrible" service when i seach for it deadhorse.gif

post #2439 of 3052

IME its "service" depends. maybe they are just busy, or have many manufacturing backlogs or something.

 

My 3g broke and i sent it for repair and I got it back after 1-2 months of waiting and it was shipped directly to my doorstep. I live in southeast asia.

 

but one friend of mine waited for his arrow for 6 months, while i waited for mine when i purchased it around 3-4 months only.

 

 

edit: or you can buy a used one!

just lurk in the FS thread and you can even get an arrow 3G because it is already good. difference between the 3G and 4G for me is the impedance switch got replaced with treble boost. as for its sound, they are both the same IMO

 

i wouldn't replace my 3G with a 4G if one of my 3G's jacks got broken

post #2443 of 3052

my arrow 4g is finally heregs1000.gif

 

what do those 2 small cables are supposed to do ? anyone knows ?

And just another reminder ... the 3G bass boost is significantly different than the 4G's ... both are equally good in realization but one might be better with certain IEMs than the other.

 

Sort of a moot point as one, most folks are buying the 4G and two, I've heard distant rumblings (from on high) that the 5G might find some way to combine the two as options (the punchier bass of the 3G as *well* as the smoother bass of the 4G...and as possibly switch based selections. But you didn't hear that from me ...
