I don't know any detalis about this discount. You can ask to Robert, he answers eventually: mail@headstage.com

 

The discount details are on their Website: http://www.headstage.com/Upgrade:::1013.html?XTCsid=3ad02ed17fe6c75bf284c568a47321bf

 

The upgrade applies to Arrow G1/G2/G3/G4, to Arrow 5N

I don't know why people are hesitant to order...Robert has always delivered in due course, albeit some waiting times but his products are excellently built and sound even better. Admittedly, the wait time is a bit irritating but with the way Robert produces the amps, I can understand the time required, in addition to his devotion to perfection on his Arrow's. I am using the 4T right now and use it as my go-to portable amp along with a Cypher labs portable DAC, sounds great and was undeniably worth the 2 week wait!

At this time, the website shows 2 weeks as expected delivery time.

 

I never had an Arrow myself, but heard the previous "Basic" 4G for a while and loved it, it totally had the fun-factor, while keeping a good balance throughout the range, and a nice soundstage.

 

 

I am dying to get my hands on the new one, but, to be honest, I am a little bit afraid of the fact that you mentioned.

 

I am not sure if the sound signature will be the same now on the basic 5G which is now called 5N, (for Neutral,  I guess), the explanation on their website seems a bit confusing between different model names, 5G, G5, 5N, 5T, 5P...

 

 

Hoping someone will review the New Arrow soon !

Anyone got the 5P (5N+ Punchboard) allready?

 

Please post a quick review/hands-on

 

Thanks

I pulled the trigger for the 5P's as well. Don't exactly know how they would stack up against a Fiio E18 and a CEntrance Dacport. Will provide impressions!

YES PLEASE

A question for all you 4N owners out there. I noticed something weird today. I was A/Bing between the 4N and directly from an Ipod Classic (with rockbox firmware), with the EQ off and no bass or treble boost on the 4N. The Ipod and 4N are volume matched (maybe a 5% difference, I'm not a machine :)).

 

So I notice that on certain tracks when listening through the 4N, the leading edge (attack)of a deep bass line is initially soft and then comes back in full force. On the iPod I just hear the attack of the deep bass line in full force right away without that weird initial fade-out and fade-in.

 

I wonder if this is a bug in my particular model of the 4N or if this is what other people are hearing to.

 

I was listening to Cowboy Junkies - A Few Bags of Grain, right at the start of that song is where a bass line starts. I know that overall the iPod sounds ever so slightly warmer than the 4N, but this weird bass thing shouldn't be happening either way.

 

Any thoughts?

How does this compare with the JDS labs c5d? I'm looking at getting a portable DAC/amp to use with my phone and this and the c5d are looking like the most portable options (great battery life and form factor with this in particular) although the ibasso d6 is a bulkier possibility too. I'd be using them with b&w p7's.
