I just have to make this topic, because I'm very enthiusiastic about this English guy and his amps.
I already heard and read wonderful things about Neco and his amps. He sells a 9v portable and a 18v portable, built like a tank, with rechargeable batteries included and a charger. He also sells a Mosfet headphone amp. All his amps can be bought upgraded with the AD8610.
I was looking for a better portable plus a nice new amp to go with my SACD player in the living room. I was thinking about a Meier portable and an M-stage, until I found out about this guy. Had some recommendations of his stuff and contacted him. Finally decided to go with his English hand made Mosfet over the Chinese M-Stage, and took his portable as well. I just had a good feeling with this.
His dual mono 9v portable sells for 71.5 British pounds, 15 extra for (2x)AD8610
His Mosfet sells for 145 pounds, 15 extra for the AD8610
I got some discount for buying 2 amps at the same time
He shipped them this tuesday to Holland and today, two days later, they arrived:
Just wanted to share my enthiusiasm. They are packed very carefully, built is very nice (very strong case) and the seller is very patient and kind with any questions you have (no I don't work for him).
The portable is charging at the moment, listened to the Mosfet for half an hour. Compared to my E7/E9 combo, I have to say it's immediately clear that the sound is more transparent, cleaner, less 'warm-coloured'.
I'll post more listening impressions later if wanted, when I spent some more time with them. But on first experience, highly recommended in this price range!
(ps. Adam, if you read this and I know you will, thanks for getting me into Neco's amps my friend! I'm very glad you advised them to me.)
