Cayin makes a ~$900 tube amp, the HA-1A. You can check it out on audiophilechina.com.

i gotta simplify, two many preamps, dacs ,argh.

cheers

oh yea how is the syneergy with the cowon s9 and the triplefi(i own and love)
also i been super curious about the etyy's. they are the originals after all
I don't think Elekit sells them direct outside of Japan; if you're in North America see here. As for speaker outs, the designers say it's really not suitable for a headamp to do both speaker (what, 30-100W) and headphone (.5W at most?) at the same time. Some integrated amps do well with headphones through a stepdown stage, but that's another story...

I don't really worry about equipment synergies on portable equipment I guess? I figure the difference won't be that big. The triple.fi sound fine out of an S9... I definitely prefer them to the Etys, I prefer the additional bass response for what I listen to and whilst I'm usually pretty picky about recessed mids, it's not that bad on the triple.fi. The triple.fi rock out pretty well, but never of them really have the detail, dynamics and instrument separation to really shine on female vocals or jazz like big can in a good setup.

If your looking for a tube amp, Woo is second to none. They have the best line up of tube amps there are.

Skylab had the Jade ranked higher than the Woo 3 inn his mini roundup of amps. Just wondering have the two been compared by others as the Jade is more reasonably priced.

They are good, but they don't really fit my tastes. Waiting on Antelope to release the Zodiac Gold for auditioning. The Benchmark will be for sale as follows.

I thought that the Darkvoice 332 competed with the Woo 3 and the 337 competed with the Woo 6 (not special edition).
