HeadAmp Pico Power: Pre-Order Thread - Page 3

post #31 of 730

Oh no, more temptations from HeadAmp!!! This could hurt my poor wallet yet again.

post #32 of 730

Justin, what cans will this amp be expected to power?

 

Are we talking orthodynamics? K1000s? Love the case design so far!

- 18V (2x9V) which is twice as powerful as the standard Pico amp and 4x as powerful as the Pico Slim.  This is the recommended amp for the hardest to drive headphones.

 

will it do a great job with k340s, k1000s, & he6s?

do you have any plans to make a balanced portable amp?

If you mean dual mono like another manufacturer's definition?  Then yes, absolutely dual mono in the same way. 


er, could you clarify this point please. what's the working definition here?

it would do a decent job with k340, k1000 (this is still intended for portable use)...great job with he6

 

a balanced amp is very unlikely.  i think working towards the merging of one's audio/video/computing/portable life (with high quality audio still present) is where I will be putting my energy.

dual mono has always meant 2 completely separate amps, including separate power supplies

as opposed to what?  previously you stated, "If you mean dual mono like another manufacturer's definition?  Then yes, absolutely dual mono in the same way. " 

i'm not sure what this alternative definition of dual mono is, that this new amp will meet that criteria. could you please clarify that. thanks.

as opposed to a definition of dual mono meaning to have both left and right channels

dave, other manufacturers use the term differently.  You don't have to look hard to find it.

Another killer amp biggrin.gif

post #39 of 730

The design of the amp looks good , but its back door seems not convenient for battery changing, this is just my thought.

post #40 of 730

Actually I think that lock bolt design for the battery compartment is georgeous. Unless one has especially clumsy fingers, I don't see there being any issue.

post #41 of 730

The lock bolt design maybe is the only way it  could be because the amp case design.

Nice design Justin (as always)! Case looks great, solid machined like that. Are the SA/SC transistors used as buffers?
