Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp - Page 175

post #2611 of 2621

Has anyone got any feedback on the 24/192 digital input?Currently have a Yulong DA8 DAC,would like to downscale my system but don't want to sacrifice too much in the way of sound quality.

Here are the different heights:

 

Chassis:                  ~45 mm

Face plate:              ~48 mm  (the face pate is taller than the chassis)  

Chassis + feet:        ~52 mm

Face plate + feet:    ~55 mm  (the feet are attached to the chassis, not the face plate)

From what I hear and what I see of the design, the optional DAC add-on should be pretty good but nowhere on the level of your DA8. It's kind of like the headphone amp on the DA8 - it's there, it's handy, it sounds good, but it doesn't compete with dedicated higher end devices. So the DA8 is an excellent DAC with a pretty good headphone amp built in, while the V200 is an excellent amp with a pretty good DAC available as an option. 

 

The DA8 is already pretty small. Not sure there's a ton of room for downsizing unless you went with a Chord Hugo (expensive) or a Resonessence Concero HP (excellent but only headphone output, no line-out).

Yea that what I was thinking,by downsizing I meant having one component instead of two.I will experiment around,but will probably just keep the DA8/V200 combo,should do well with the LCD-2 fazor

Sorry,one more question about the length.Its documented as 225cm,does that include the volume knob and rca connectors on the back,or just the Chassis itself??Cheers:o

I kneww\ this one was coming :-)

 

Overall depth:  almost 10 inches or 252 mm (not 225 cm or that would be over 2 meters !).

haha don't worry, commonwealth people are exempt from handling anything metric, peace ! :)

 

hopefully i'll get my hands on a lcd2f soon too, but don't have my violectric stack anymore :ph34r: 

post #2619 of 2621

Thanks for all the help with the dimensions,finally got my V200.I have it stacked with a Yulong DA8,there dimensions are opposite to each other,one being long and narrow,other being wider than its depth.My little wood bracket worked OK,but not great,gonna have to do...

I'll be selling my V200 as soon as the V220 is shipping. 

 

Funny, I had one in the past, regretted selling it and bought a second one used.
