Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp - Page 143

post #2131 of 2621

T5p and T70 go quite well with V200. espacially T70.

Since I paired my T70s to V200, I seldom use my T5p. the pairing is that good.

 

Cheers.

How about sibbilances? Are they as smooth as possible on t70 with V200? And how about lower mids? are they rich?

post #2133 of 2621

V200's sound signature is slightly warmer side, but that doesn't effect sibilant headphones because V200 is basically a neutral sounding amplifier. I started to feel my T70s less sibilant after I acquired V800 as a DAC.

 

The T70 on V200 (considering T70's impedance, V100 will do) + V800 stack is amazing.

they are so lively and smooth and powerful. If you have T70s I fully recommend this setup.

Hi, I wanted to know that this worked the v200 with sennheiser hd650 and akg k701.

thanks

Are you saying that based on photos or real life?  I was always thought the Violectric stack looked great, but it looks even better in person than it does on photos.

Me too.

v200 aesthetics wise is kinda on the ugly side.  When I think of beautiful amps, I think of the ones made by Ray Samuels.

 

But the thing with v200, this german made product seems like it is built for war.  It uses a Nextel coating (as seen here: http://www.eldeco.be/Nextel.htm) so that the unit is scratch resistant, and if you spill something on it such as coffee mug stains, you cna just wipe it off and it's like nothing was there. 

 

Just read that this Nextel coating was used inside the NASA space shuttles :D

It definitely has a quality and premium feel to it.  My sister has a Graham Slee amp, which looks nice in photos, but picking it up it feels incredibly light and unsatisfying in comparison.  When I pick up a V200, though, I feel the need for a quiet moment of reverence.  :)

Mine shipped from Lake People in Germany today and will be here Friday! Talk about quick turnaround. It'll be powering my HD800's. Now I just need a better DAC...

I'm also looking for a new DAC for my V200, perhaps with DSD, I'll wait for the annoucement of the new Concero even if I don't like the lack of balanced output...

Nothing looks better stacked under a V200 than a V800.  wink.gif

post #2144 of 2621

 I'll also be awaiting the new Concero. The V800 has some stiff competition at it's price point, in my opinion. But hey, that's me.

No question RSA units look good, but then you pay for all that bling . . .  while I'm at it, I don't get those spiky things on amps.  I can understand having spikes on speakers to isolate vibration, but on other gear?  Just looks cool I guess . . . well, glad that's off my chest !!!  cool.gif

 

I think the low profile and solid feel of the V200 is really nice.  My V200 just sits on top of a cherry wood cabinet not looking for attention, not taking up a lot of space, just kicking out some great sounds.
