Audio-gd Master-5/6/8/9 balanced head amp/ preamp - Page 40

post #586 of 868
Master 8 and 9 is basically a Master 5 and 6 in one box AFAIK. Master 5 is powerful and Master 6 is super powerful.

I doubt anyone can give me a answer, But how would the Precision 1 compare?

 

Will it even get somewhat close to the performance or not even a chance?

Interesting, i have been wanting to know as well, how master 8/9 does against precision 1, on HE-6.

I asked Kingwa a few weeks ago. This is what he replied:

Dear Victor,

The Precision 1 is not balanced design, so its slight warmer than the Master 8, we have consider it is low range gear so we design reduce the odd distortion but keep slight even distortion for sound smooth.

The power of course can drive the HE6. Its noise is very low.

The normal sensitivity headphone can't hear the noise on listen volume.

Hmm I really wan't to get M9 - the OCC wiring and pure class A operation appeal to the irrational audiophile within.

Master 8 \ 9 can power the HE6 just fine, listened to it on the Master 8 last week.  Dubstep Girl swears the HE6 still has more potential than what she was hearing on it but couldn't state what amp would bring it out, other than a recommendation for speaker amps.

I think a direct comparison would be needed. My "super duper" speaker amp doesn't drive it better than my M6.
post #593 of 868

Agreed.

Made me want to try what the fuzz with this he6.

I have just ordered the Master 9 :bigsmile_face:

 

I don't know when I will receive it. When I do I will connect it and I can compare it with my Violectric V200.

 

I will know counting the days. :tongue_smile:

I have heard the Master 5 or 6, don't remember exactly, at home by a dutch member of Head-Fi. I was blown away. I have save money for a year and now I can finally buy one.

 

I am trilled. :L3000:
