Violectric HPA V200 Why not sufficiently appreciated?? - Page 21

In any case, I'll be ordering a new cable, but till it arrives I was hoping I could use one of these spares. Advice would be appreciated.



You'll love it with the X-Dac ;)

Powercables have differences? I'll be damned, I need to check that tonight. lol. Never ever looked at that before

Spoke to the guys at Violectric, apparently it doesn't matter whether it's 10A, 13A or 16A etc. The wattage or power consumption is still low enough to not make a difference. In any case, looks like I'll be testing! :D

16A is actually a pretty damn high rating.. Quite sure most fuses would burn before the powercord draws that amount of power. :P

Just received my X-DAC from HK . 

just to mentioned that customer service from Rein Audio is really top notch .  all of my queries got response with hours . 

really impressed with them . last Email from Jason S. Tonald. from Rein Audio per below to share :-

 

 

A. How long burn in time is needed to reach optimum performance ?
 
[RA: As my experience, you may need over 20 hours for first and you will see the different on performance. Actually, it is my personal point of view.]
 
 
B. Are the product mfg At china ?
 
[RA: The PCB design by our German designer and assembly in China otherwise the German design is not such popular price. To be honest, our distribution center setup in Asia because we are new brand and Asia and Mainland China is our target market.]
 
 
C. How does the waranty works ?
 
[RA: Touch wood if you need. Owing to we don't have official distributor in Singapore, it is necessary to return to our HK centre for any repair. We offer 12-months warranty services (except parts demage). Customer have to ship by at their cost to HK but we will free shipment as return to you.]
 
 
D. Are the usb connection asynchronous ?
 
[RA: Yes, it is asynchronous.]
 
 
E. How to know the output data of the DAC ?eg.  ?bits, ?kps ...etc
 
[RA: I'm not sure your question. For Coxial / Optical, it support 24bits/192kHz and USB is 24bits / 96 khz.]
 
Wish you enjoy our effort in this X-DAC. If you are interested our other series, please feel free to order! Thanks!
 
I just hook it up with V200 and running thru' music. will post some listening thought after 48 hours after I listen to it . 
 
Now , Back to track on the thread , with regards to power cable , it did makes a differences compared with stock cable . 
and also the thickness of cable ( amount of copper ) does affect the sound too.. it is recommended to use a thicker cable for amplifier as it drive more current than other source devices. such as DAC. 
 
you will realized that thicker cable will help to improve the dynamics range and drive the bass lower and fuller. .
it is a sound investment to squeeze all juices from your Equipment. 
 
also , try to reduce the connection , for example. use the power cable that could directly plug into your power distributor instead of needing to use a adapter .  I will also invest a decent power distributor with noise filtering function so that the power supply is as clean as possible.
 
cheers.

Why does this amp have to sound so damn good...my wallet is looking at me dubiously. crying.gif

Thank God I at least got a good offer on this (audition6.de) otherwise I really would be teary eyed lol.

Temporary set up till I get my new house/flat. Still have the Rein Audio cables to plug in and give a whirl.

Cool, congrats.  Sure would love to hear the T1.  Every meet we have had in So Cal either hasn't had one or the one person who does hasn't shown up.  I like dynamics and electostats, the otho/planars never clicked for me.

Hi ,

 

I wanna buy Balanced headamp/dac combo , My budget is max 1000$ use with hd 650 with a balanced cabled , please help me

Has anyone in the USA ordered directly from Violectric? I'm curious to know how much shipping costs. I can order from the dealer in Minnesota, but it could be cheaper straight from Germany, depending on shipping.
post #310 of 337

I did order my first V100 directly from Violectric before Robert start selling them here. It took a while in transit. I don't remember how much it was but I am almost sure it was not much cheaper. Since then I have upgraded to the V200 and for that I went directly to Aphrodite.

I would go that way.

post #311 of 337

Fried pretty much told me the same thing--go directly with Robert at Aphrodite.

 

Also, how much of a sonic difference is there between the V90 and V100?

post #312 of 337

I have never listened to the V90 so I can not say but there is a significant difference mainly in control between the V100 and V200. They share the same sound signature but the bass control with the V200 is clearly better.

post #313 of 337

Robert's the best, go through him for sure.

post #314 of 337

Robert doesn't stock the V90 or V100.  I'm still deciding if I want the V100 or the Musical Fidelity M1 HPA.  If I decide on the V100, I'll have to order directly from Violectric.

You should go for the V200. Is a great little amp.
