Headstage Arrow HE: Reviews, Impressions, Perceptions & Sensations - Page 208

post #3106 of 3114
G should be for generation. It used to be just 1g, 2g, 3G and 4g. 4T (tube) and 4n (neutral) came after 4g. For the 5th generation, there are 3 models - 5n, 5t n 5p (punchy).

Cheers all, so judging by the buttons on mine i have a 4g? Is there any way of determining whether T or N model?

Just bought an Arrow 4 G, and am looking for a Manual but don't seem to be able to find it anywhere.

Does anybody have a Link to a 4G Manual?

 

Thank you.

I have 2, 4Gs and 1, 4T, and the only noticeable difference is on the back with the swtches, the 4G has a (chg) on the otherside of the input hole, and the 4T doesn't have it, what the chg stands for you got me, I would have thought it stood for charge? but it is on the opposite of where the mini usb charging port is?

And that's all?? No differences in sound!!

you where asking how to tell the difference for which model that you have? a 4G or 4T? and so on, and hence forth, to my knowledge, that is the only way to tell which model that you have,

 

as to the sound, well hell yes der is a difference!!! but that isn't what you where asking about? sorry for my lack of detail as to any sound difference, lol,

 

the tube adds a warmer overall sound, richer, but looses some crispness/detail just a little mind you? and adds to a more spacious soundstage, I'm not very good at objective comparisons, I either love things or not? but I gave it a listen for a couple of weeks on my commute to work, eventaully I went back to the 4G, might give it another listen, but it was a very very nice change of pace, its been a few months since I've listened to the 4T,

 

I have a the 5N/T/P coming, so I am anxious to give it a listen when it does get here,

 

btw, I'm curious if anyone is for certain if the the 5N is the standard, just without one of the added boards, the T, or P, and by adding either of the two boards, you get the T or P, sound, or without an extra board it is the N, and that is how to get one of either of the 3, or is there also an N board? I'm thinking not, as there are only 2 extra boards listed to buy on the site, just curious, thanks!

I agree with you, I think that both the current nomenclature of the 5th Generation Arrow models and the way the description has been written on their website can be a little bit confusing.

I pre-ordered a 5g back in May.  I have sent 2 emails over the last 3 weeks via the Headstage website requesting a status on delivery and I have not received a reply.  Does anyone have any other contact details so I can at least get a reply on status from Headstage.  I must say that their customer service has been dissapointing in tghis instance.

Robert e-mailed me this yesterday:

 

your amp is on the way to California now, and will be forwarded to you Wednesday or Thursday this week.

 

sounds like Robert has got the ball rolling! so I am uber happy! lets hope everyone else is on his mailing list?

 

impressions will be forthcoming
