Thinking of a different amp perhaps? The pico doesn't have optical...

Really? I thought it did, though where I got that idea . . . I think someone at the Bay Area meet suggested that it had an optical line in and I was going to try out his amp, but he didn't make it to the meet.

 

Oh, now I'm all confused.  Back to research.

Received my UHA-4 yesterday and it is excellent. I'm using it with my sflo2 and sansa fuze. Definitely solves the treb roll of on the sflo2. On low gain I can't hear hissing at all. On high gain I can hear hissing but its low hiss and only noticeable when no music is playing. I actually prefer the high gain on my IE8/IE7's as the sound stage is bigger and it requires less volume to get to a comfortable level. Overall a wonderful little Amp/DAC and at about half the price of its competitor's (amazing). I'm surprised at how unknown this company is to headfi. They definitely make great audio equipment and deserve more attention. Just hope that don't drive the prices sky high lol. And as for size, this think is pretty small. Maybe a tad wider than the sflo2 but nothing major. I consider it portable ( close to the size of the fuze).

Wait - WHA ??? Unknown ? Is this the same Leckerton Audio that currently has the two biggest FOTMs on this forum ? If you had said 'Just Audio', I might have gone along with it, but Leckerton .....

Two? the UHA-4 has been getting some attention, but the 6 not so much.

post #126 of 1074

Sorry didn't know that. It seems its not to  well known from reading the forums compared to the other high end portable amps. In that regard I think I'm right. There's a lot more information on the arrow and pico slim in comparison. And I'm not saying this to insult the product. I think its underrated.

i was just on the leckerton site, the price has been increased to 179

Damn.  Kind of sucks that they raised the prices (already).  I mean a price increase was probably inevitable, but I guess the FOTM effect has hit in full effect.

 

Eh, I was seriously thinking of ordering one over the weekend and it's only $10 bucks, but still... for some reason my itchy trigger finger isn't so itchy any more.  In other news, my wallet is happier though, lol. :D

The price is still pretty good for the functionality the product offers, but it is not a good practice to raise the price when you notice the product becomes popular.

post #130 of 1074

Wow he just raised the price on the amp. I ordered mine last  Friday and had it delivered by Wednesday. I paid $169.00. Surprised he raised the price but it was bound to happen. This happens to most products when there is demand. The alo rx and arrow use to be cheaper themselves. I still think its worth $179.00 Just glad I saved $10.00 ;).

Instead of raising the price, they should have noticed the increased popularity and offered a discount or group buy opportunity for head-fiers.

post #132 of 1074

All Leckerton prices have gone up not just the 4 by $10 but also the 6 and 6S by $20.  There is no way anyone would or should like a price increase but $10 is not too bad especially when some amps have gone up by $40 (see Arrow 12HE).  Still a price hike is nothing to rejoice over...  Now, if the $10 was for a newer somehow upgraded version (not that it needs an upgrade but maybe 24/96 capability or extra or moved input on the bottom or placement of the volume rocker at the bottom, etc.) that might have made it easier to digest...

 

As for sharing impressions, it might be helpful to list sources and headphones used as a few have already done.

Woah, he raised the price JUST after I bought mine, not even a few hours, that was close!

What is the other FOTM? Unless I'm mistaken there are only 3 portable amps with the 6 having an option for spdif making it the 6S.

 

Although I did lose out on $10 by waiting if I ever decide to buy this amp.

OK - we'll have to agree to disagree, but I think both have taken off.
