Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp - Page 166

post #2476 of 2847
Thanks Hennessys for sharing that bit of news.
If these amps are to be released this year, I I will be really excited to try them out. The V200 is the best amp I have at the moment, and a balanced/beefier version of that would be awesome!

Can anyone comment on how the HE-500 headphones pair up with a V200-V800 stack?

Xenophon put down a couple of thoughts here

I agree with those. V200/V800 is really great with HE-500, though of course one can possibly achieve a more desirable sound (with tube coloration) from other amps. Depends on your preferences I suppose.

How V200-V800 combo with HD 650? (speed and depth bass for techno, trance, space for ambient..)

 

I really don't know what to buy: V200 or Burson Soloist for 650 and, may be LCD2 or HD800 sometime :\

 

 

 


stay tuned, impressions in a few days !!!

 

 

edit: so much about selling my gear and bailing out of desktop head-fi, resistance is futile :deadhorse:

Just read the review on headfonia and v200/v800 is the best stack they have heard for the he-6.  Anyone else share similar views?

Well, not everybody thinks that way. Check around on this forum: amps-that-can-drive-the-hifiman-he-6-planar-headphones

yup over xlr it was like listening to hi-end monitors, but imo still misses a watt or two, just didn't have the easiness and articulation of the lcd3, but that could be just the he-6 being the he-6, very neutral and good soundstage, unusually wide and airy for the violectric and with excellent positioning, treble the best i ever heard, mids needed a touch more of body, lows were super tight and controled, maybe a little too much for my taste

 

i sold the he-6 cos i felt it needs a specialized solution dedicated for itself, it's just too much hard to drive to have it in the same setup with the other cans, maybe the next violectric balanced amp will be perfect

 

i was actually contemplating to keep either the he-6 or the lcd3/hd800 as a combo, the he-6 falls just in between having most of the good proprieties of both the other two

 

edit:

 

another thing is the he-6 is uber revealing of the chain, on the violectric dead neutral and maybe boring, on some other more powerful amps that were just slightly U shaped with other cans, with the he-6 it was a mess

 

so to limit the problem to simply, can it drive the he-6, is pretty inaccurate and won't give you any insight about getting the sound right, but it's a good start

I cannot comment on the V800, but i personally like the HE-6 with the V200. I tried speaker amps and they give surprisingly good result, but somehow I missed something that I found in the V200.

 

I’m still looking for a good speaker amp for the HE-6, because we usually listening 2 headphones at the same time and it’s impossible to have the HE-6 and HD800/T1 on the same amp due to the difference in loudness.

V200 was the best I'd heard for HE-6, until I got the AURALiC Taurus. V200 is quite good though. 

post #2487 of 2847

no wonder, with almost double the output power, and 12V input capability, price as well doubles... good to know there is something like that around

Right. It says a lot about the V200 that it almost matches the Taurus, with less power, smaller enclosure, for less money.
