Thanks, I've got one of those RCA to 3.5s around here somewhere, all is good :)

This is pretty cool! Will loaning be open for the foreseeable future, or is it only available for a limited period? Coz I'd love to be able to try it out in a few months once I've got some decent cans to try it with :P

The E11 is to give you an idea of size :)

 

Started out with my Alessandro MS1i, then switched to a loaner set of DT880 Pros.

 

Suffice it so say - I was supposed to be listening to a lot of different tracks, and swapping amps.  Instead here I am an hour later with a silly grin on my face after listening to the entire Clapton Unplugged album solely through my iPod4 > Lod > GoVibe.  Entrancing.

 

I'll be back with thoughts in a couple of days after I really get a chance to put this through it's paces.

I thought we could start a new thread - then get all the demo people to post their impressions in it as they get it.  I'll be starting on mine tonight.  If I don't find your thread later on, I'll start one - OK?

Received the amp today but didnt have time to listen to it.

 

Anyway I probably have an hour on it and Im very impressed so far.

 

Its got a very balanced sound. I think treble and bass is just how it should be.


The sound stage is a bit narrow compared to my p3+ with opa2111-transistor buffers-ad827 but still it has very good resolution and instrument seperation is good as well.

 

Listening to madeleine peyroux and somehow her voice is right in between the instruments. Usually with my other desktop amps her voice is a bit more upfront.

 

Its also a bit bigger than I imagined. I Think it has no problem driving my k702s. with p3+ you get a feeling like you need more volume or somethg is missing but porta tube has no problems driving them.

 

Interestingly you feel the tubes vibrating when you first turn the amp on or off but no noise in the headphones whatsoever.

 

Anyway I will post some more impressions as the time goes on and I enjoy more music through this babysmily_headphones1.gif maybe its a good idea to start a new thread or just post impressions in the porta tube thread that already exists.

I just started a review page in the portable amp section.  My review is up.  if the testers just want to add their impressions, it'd be appreciated.
