Even Fiio seem to have slowed down from the 20 or so new products they released over a 4 month peiod  :)



They did announce something mid last month. Well, somewhat...

It’s been a busy several months at Leckerton Audio. The company is now headquartered in Austin, Texas, a vibrant city known for its growing tech scene. Even with the move, I’ve managed to find time to spend on some new amp designs which have me pretty excited. I’ll be updating the website with more details as the release date approaches. Look for these new designs in the coming months!

I emailed them over a month ago and still no reply. I'm hoping they have something new and real special up their sleeve.

If you guys haven't received a response from Leckerton, you might want to try re-sending your emails. I've already received a response for the email I sent last night. He said the UHA-4's will be back in stock at the end of this month, as they're in production right now.

FYI: Not to make any excuses for Nick, but Leckerton Audio is his side gig.  It doesn't make enough to quit his day job and it is the reason for his recent relocation.

 

Also, I've found depending what you put into the subject line can determine a faster response or not.  This goes for any electronic two way communication.

Side gig, eh ? Sounds like a wise move to me. We have quite a few speaker manufacturers in Australia, and I recently tried to visit Aslan Acoustics only to be confronted by this:

 

NOW CLOSED FOR BUSINESS. (Yet another victim of the GFC)

 

AFAIK, none of the mainstream manufacturers on Head-Fi have hit the wall financially (SinglePower ?), but its naive to think it cant happen.

I just wish Leckerton would post up some sort of time frame so I knew when product was available. I knew I should have grabbed a UHA-6S or 4 when they were still in stock but I dragged my feet. I've gotten so tired of waiting I even considered an Arrow4G but God only knows how long the waiting list is before your order gets shipped.

Listening to my uHA-4 as I type this, and it sounds fantastic. Hasnt missed a beat in over 12 months of ownership - you really missed the boat on this one. cool.gif

Well this is interesting. I just tried to check the Leckerton site and got a page appears to be broken message. Maybe the sites being updated and there's finally some new stock available?

Leckerton said they are in production now and would be ready around the end of this month. On a side note- I picked up a UHA-6S in the FS section yesterday. Can't wait to try it out. :D

If it's Alpha's I recommend grabbing the 209 opamps to try out.  The 8610 are just not transparent enough but they are fun sounding.  That was a good deal btw.

It was! Where DO you go to buy opamps? lol. Is there a specific place everyone gets them from?

Leckertons page or mouser.  It's better to go throug Nick's page as he already sets them up on the sockets.

 

http://www.leckertonaudio.com/products/#adapters

 

SOIC-to-DIP Adapter
w/Pre-Installed Single Op-Amp


select OPA209A or whatever else from the dropdown or just send an email to Nick.  You'll need dip tool/chip extractor or the correct set of pliers, two opamps btw, one per channel.
