Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp - Page 157

post #2341 of 2618

yup, i think an easier way to select gain, a switch or dial perhaps, and a input selector, both on the front panel, is the first thing they should look for, it's so flexible yet such a pain to change settings, i often switch from rca to xlr, and setting the gain when going from iems to hd800 or lcd, fix usability !!!!!!

 

sound quality wise i would change nothing, maybe price it a little better

 

maybe ditch any unnecessary luxury

Make a fancy case, enter some buzzwords about scientific breakthroughs in circuitry and molecular design, tripple the price, watch the summit go nuts.

+1, for the sarcasm ofc

 

didn't see any shot of the violectric boot from canjam yet

 

they must be a real threat to the industry

Well that's how it is and it should be quite obvious. I don't see how Violectric as brand should strip anything from "luxuries" (coating? pot? extra components?) or price (which is quite decend).

 

Front gain and source switch would be cool.

i don't know, you had both you tell me what's the difference in performance, than i'll make a judgement for myself

Read project86 reviews and comments, my generic impressions would be worthless ("they sound pretty much the same").

+1 for v200, how about v181 

post #2351 of 2618

Got a used V200 a couple of days ago and have been listening to it a lot with HD 650. Conclusion; amazing combo. Switched over to a pair of original Denon AH-D7000's today, and it sounds amazing with these too. Tomorrow the LCD-2's go in! ;)

 

Great amplifier for sure!

 

Sexeh!

impressions please, especially about the d7000 and lcd2 and hd650 compared :) in terms of listening pleasure :)

 

all the stereo speaker setup audioholics and audiophiles that came by for a listen, had the beyer t1, hd800, hd650, lcd2.2 in my v800 v 200 setup, all agreed that the lcd2.2 was the most truthful representation to live listening !  and to some the d7000 was the ultimate can !

 

and said that hd800 sounded much more closer to the real thing than in other setups they tried,

 

most said hd800 did sound more detailed in other setups with much more expensive sources, but brighter too, very often brighter feels more detailed so take that with a grain of salt :wink_face:

 

especially when you listen to speakers you realize how detail retrieval isn't really the hardest thing to get to a satisfactory level even in mid end setups, even more so in headfi setups, i could perfectly live with my hd650 and se530 for that metter

 

that said, the violetric setup really never failed at delivering a pleasant experience with any of the cans i thrown at it

D7000 are very enjoyable. Too bad D7100 is a complete fail. But V200 plus LCD-2 is an excellent match, as I'm sure you'll find out today. Have fun!

Any updates or thoughts on the LCD-2's? 

 

I am leaning heavily on a v200 to use with LCD-2's and HE-500's. 

post #2355 of 2618

as once a hi-fi "opinionist" said, the 1st kHz is the most important kHz, if you don't get that right all the other virtues ain't gonna do much good

 

the v200 and lcd2 not only get it right but makes it wonderfully beautiful as well

 

and going up the frequency range things get only better :)

 

ofc some quick impressions from the heart about d7000 lcd2 and hd650 would be nice

 

my v200 miss the lcd2 sooooo much buawawawawa awwwwww...
