Fostex HP-P1 Portable Amplifier and DAC for iPod/iPhone (Short REVIEW and Impressions Thread) - Page 56

post #826 of 1305

Personally, i would pay the extra $50. for a new unit.  Under 10% off for a used unit sounds like not a great deal.

I was actually considering this thought before. It's a good thing it's no longer available, the demo unit that is. I had other sudden expenses haha

IMO,

 

You should never discount B&H from finding a good price on a piece of gear.

Even getting it shipped to Canada, it was still the cheapest price I could find.

Although it does seem to trickle charge my ipod, it doesn't trickle charge the ipad mini.  Works fine with it otherwise and doesn't seem to drain battery.

Does the iPod use the Lightning connector also? 

 

I thought I read somewhere about the HP-P1 not operating the iPod Classic power/pause on/off function, anybody know about that?

Works perfectly with my old classic and old dock. Maybe the pins are different for charging with the lightning connector .

No problems here either with a 7G IPC. I have not tried it with my iPhone5 yet.

post #833 of 1305

Thanks guys, I'm set on an IPC 7G to replace my Touch 2G which will remain backup/alarm clock for as long as it survives.

 

I'm also onto the Beyer T5p, specifically because of their reported quality with acoustic recordings and portable equipment. These will team up with the DT1350. All will be fed by the iDevice/HP-P1 setup. I'm looking forward to hearing the T5p! Viva la headfi.

Pairing hpp1 with dt1350 is very good. The warm character and bottomless bass with deep impact of dt1350 is just suit hpp1. I still can get the feel of Natural sound from it which is good for me. The t5p has a very natural sound character. Layering and detail of sound is far better than dt1350. And that will give me 3D sound like. Listening vocal through t5p is the best i can get. Is like a true vocal and able to give me "in the room" feeling.

This is falls in with my general expectations. I would have liked to try the TH900 next, HP-P1 has caused me to have quite a bit of respect for Fostex, but I think that headphone is just too expensive at the moment. The DT1350 bass expression is tip top fun.

 

Has anyone had their HP-P1 board cryo treated? Could it be done or is it just too risky?

Does it apply to the HP-P1? Tubes?

post #839 of 1305

The concept applies to tubes or SS....It is an electronics thing....

post #840 of 1305

I have some cryo-treated stuff but if you ask me, if it works don't fix it.  It you have a problem with your sound then search out what others have done to get more clarity.  I think the HP-P1 has little to fix, maybe only size but that will come with technology advances.
