Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp - Page 170

post #2536 of 2847

I think the match between the v200, Mytek 192 DSD and Fostex TH900 is great. My 1st impression was that the combo was a bit bright, but now that the v200 has burned in I love the sound. Can't really say that the v200 is warm/tubey, I think it's pretty neutral but perhaps that's because of the combo with the Mytek.  Havent experimented with cables yet.

Thanks

 

Edit :

 

Got it. It will be an unbalanced version of V281. Right ?

 

V220 will have some upgrades over V200 - reworked power supply with upgraded transformers, tweaked output stage, and a ton more options. It works as a dedicated preamp now, including XLR and RCA outputs. Then there's the expanded upgrade list where you can choose between several digital input options, as well as remote volume control or the custom-made relay based volume option.

 

For someone who doesn't care about digital inputs, remote controls, or preamp capabilities, the interesting question will be - how different is the base V220 from the V200? It's almost a $400 price increase so we'd expect there to be some noticeable improvement, but I don't know how big it will actually be.

Hi guys,

I just bought V800 and v200. I'd rather put the v200 below the V800 on my desk. Is this a problem for heat dissipation? someone used this way?

post #2539 of 2847
Not at all. When I had the V181, V200, and V800 all stacked 3 tall they never even got warm.

Temporarily set up all on one shelf while I had quite a lot of demo gear for a meet.

Beautiful set ! ;)

 

it is true that there is not even a window for heat dissipation on the V200 ..

no problem...my V200 sits under the V800 even when room temperature is 30 deg plus in summer and it never gets too hot..

thanks for your response. i'm in the north of France, in summer it's not so hot as in your country..:darthsmile:

I stack them with the v200 on the bottom and they are left on around the clock and are never off.

 

So far nothing has happened to them, and I doubt anything will.  Still the same awesome Violectric sound.

I love this amp but I'm letting my desktop stuff go, so it's for sale in the classified section if anyone is interested.

Guido, you use this configuration for a long time? I found the V800 is still quite heated by the V200 placed below! not a problem for you ?

post #2546 of 2847

No problem either way , above or below...

post #2547 of 2847

Thanks. So I'll continue in this configuration.

The new Violectric 24/192 USB DAC module is now available.

 

Will try to do a comparison with my Meridian Explorer DAC.

 

Can be bought directly from Violectric or from Thomann.

Write off the whole thing because of the brand of one chip? Isn't that premature? Granted, I was surprised when they chose Tenor rather than XMOS, but still.... let's give it a chance and see if people have any issues or not. Supposedly it's been extensively tested.
