Mine does fine with my T50RPs unless I really crank it.  Then I think I can hear some mild clipping occasionally.  I don't normally listen too loud though.

OPA209.

I tried with the T50rp and one of my SFI transplants and the sound just wasn't right. Lacking in bottom end and upper clarity was fuzzy.

How much juice do those SFIs need compared to T50RPs and do you know which opamp it had?

Shameless plug: I have a Leckerton Audio UHA-6S for sale in the FS section! :D

I was one of the 32ohm SFI's, so I don't think it needs *that* much. Volume was adequate, but control just seemed to be lacking.

 

I think it was just the default opamps.

I thought those were pretty inefficient but I've never messed with one myself.  I must have misremembered or misread something.

I can vouch for Armaegis, I was there and it Sally he tried out. Plenty of volume for the SFI but no control. Everything else we threw at her sounded pretty good though. Next time me and Armaegis get together the plan is to hook his AKG Sextette up and see if Sally can drive her.

 

P.S.

For everyone reading the thread yes I call my UHA-4 Sally.

Why am I not surprised ..... 

 

There is a line here somewhere  about calling your hand Harry, but I'm not going there.

Hi guys, may I know what are the op amps available with the uha4 and maybe could kindly let me know the differences in SQ btw them. I'm intend to use it with my Heir Audio 8.A (portable) and wonder which op amp would be a better match. On a side note, it will be nice if it can also replace my Fiio E7 as a USB dac with the Fiio E9 driving the HD650. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

I use the Stock OP amp and find it to be very nice. It's quite neutral with just a hint of warmth. And adds clarity to the mid range which I love. Maybe consider the O2 amp for your HD650s. I did have the E9 amp and it was powerful but it did have some quirks such as the volume pot which was noisy and irritating.

Hi lee730, I'm also having this scratching noise when turning the volume knot with the E9. So far I'm  still quite satisfied with it and would like to focus on the a portable amp which also serves as a usb dac to replace my E7. On a side note, I might just get a dedicated DAP for my portable use, but this UHA4 seems like a good option as it may fill up both my home and portable rig with my IP4. Any thoughts? Many thanks.

I think the UHA4 is a great option. It's very portable, has quite a bit of power for such a small amp, has cross-feed/low & hi gain settings and has a digital potentiometer for sensitive IEMs (great volume control). You may consider waiting for the UHA6 MKII as that will surely be a better amp. I'm not sure about the volume control though. If Leckerton implemented a digital potentiometer on it it would be much more appealing to the Sensitive IEM/headphone crowd and I"m sure would boost his profit margins (add cross-feed as well :P).

Ok lee730, guess I can hold out a little while as I need to send my custom in for a refit. Will wait and see if the UHA6 MK2 would be better value when it's available. Anyway, just curious how does the UHA4 differs from the Fiio E17. Any thoughts? Many thanks.
