post #106 of 643



Not dannie01, but I got mines from Jack Wu of Woo Audio.  You can alos get it from here but becareful as Donal said it is ompatible but both 274B and 5U4G are direct heated so it may be to hot for the 6H30.

"indeed, I have the UM3x and the JH16. If I get the Sonett, would be able to provide some feedback."

 

 

We'll look forward to your observations TTEO22!

From what I've found, the Sonett is great at controlling bass on headphones which can be overpowering in that region (my Grado GS1000s). At the same time, the bass is still strong through my Sennheiser HD600s, where bass quantity can be a concern. Feels a bit like magic to be honest

I was a little concerned that the sound the DNA Sonett produces isn't warm enough for my Grado GS1000s compared to my last amp, but this Jim Croce album is so beautiful and natural in tone. Thanks again to punkaroo and all others who convinced me that the Sonett was worth buying. The combination of beautiful songwriting, clarity and tone that I'm hearing is almost bringing a tear to my eye  I had a similar experience earlier with Steely Dan's Aja album.

 

Awesome...

Between single end and balanced input, how did most of the users choose? I understand the inputs are not balanced, it is worth ordering it balanced? Any thoughts from the current Sonett users? Tks.

I finally got to listen to this amp at canjam, Donald had to pull out at the last minute but Neko Audio brought one with them to display. This is the best amp that i have heard so far with my jh-13s. And even more surprising was that with music off, i could max the volume and not even hear a hint of hiss, it was completely silent, which is something that ive never experienced with my jh-13s, not even with the pico slim or my protector. If i werent getting the jh-3a i would buy one of these for home use with the 13's in a heart beat.

Were you using the Neko DAC as a source or your own?

i was using the neko dac that he had plugged in, he was demoing it as a system. The from what i could tell the neko dac was very nice as well.

post #117 of 643

I heard this at CanJam as well. It was one of the best rigs I've ever heard with the HD650. I want that and the Neko now.

post #118 of 643

The Neko DA100 is pretty amazing but it's a bit to the dark side. Not exactly plug-and-play in my book but should be beautiful if you can find the synergy.

post #119 of 643

The Neko was on my primary list too. Loved the idea of the transformer coupled output. I opted for the W4S DAC and am pretty happy so far. The organic nature of SET of the Sonett, and balanced signature of the W4S is very compelling.

This amp makes you forget all your preconceived notions of what an amp can do with music, doesn't it? :)

You're very, very welcome! Mine still puts a huge grin on my face while listening to it!
