REVIEW: Fischer Audio FA-011 - OFF THE DEEP END!! - Page 118

post #1756 of 2077

I just read like 30 pages on this topic and i'm a little bit confused about batch and build, Is that natural wood version currently on sale from GD Audiobase is a good one? or we can't know at all?

On the other hand, it seems there is some trouble to find the right amp/dac for the FA-011, then is it works well with a cheap Xonar DG? I can't spend more ...

The natural wood is the latest version, but ordering from GD-audiobase seems entirely useless at the moment. I ordered 3 weeks ago and they haven't shipped yet, I emailed asking to cancel my order since I've found a pair now but haven't had a reply. I'll give him another week then try contacting Moneybookers.

Hmm different to DefQon I actually find the FA011 / EF2 pairing to be quite very nice! *Minus the very to get rid of the new toy syndrome, but it really smoothed out the highs and liquidified the whole presentation.

 

So I guess for those who find the FA011 highs to be untolerable, maybe you can look into that dac/amp as opposed to some solid state fiio offerings :)

 

I like it more from the EF2 than from the E10 anyways. I did have some NOS GE tubes in it and couldn't be bothered rolling the stock tubes back in to compare.

This is one of my favorites headphones. I wouldnt never sell it because its deep in the bass and very satisfaction.

After skimming over this thread these seem like these would be the perfect foil for my Grado collection.  Unfortunately they seem to be out of stock everywhere!  Does anyone know of any places that have stock or why there is no stock? Im based in the UK so nearer the better.

 

Regards

Dan

I contacted Frogbeats and they said that they will restock hopefully within the month.
Noisy Motel said that it's going through customs now too.

Yeah, it seems like most of the retailers are out of stock for now.

I know Dimitri at Musica Acoustics has a bunch of these. I was quite sure I was going to get a loaner, but the one he was going to let me take went bust. As I've said before, I really like these as long as they are in good shape. The first ones I tried had a cable problem and sounded awful.

Any news from GD Audiobase ? I want to do an order but if you don't have news and since they don't respond to an email that I sent them five days ago, I'm a little bit scared.

Nope, haven't heard anything. Moneybookers is giving him 5 days to respond then they'll consider it a "confirmed non-delivery". Hopefully that means I'll get a refund!
