Multi-Portable Amp Thread: 16 amps reviewed (Leckerton UHA-6S MKII added) - Page 11

post #151 of 279

Those are great reviews, thanks average_joe. For the stepdance, I agree that the upper mid is a bit on the bright side. However, I find that make the sound more musical. The review on ADL Cruise makes me really want to own one. I don't need the DAC part, so question is, does the stride has the same amp section as cruise?

Yes, the SD is musical, but so are many other amps, so in direct comparison with some of the other amps it isn't as impressive. Plus, it depends on the headphones/earphones you pair with it.  

 

The Stride is the exact same as the Cruise, just without the carbon fiber look.

No Practical Devices XM6? Or Vorzuge VorzPure? (...)

Yes, SD is picky on which headphone/earphone to pair with. It sounds good with my B&O A8, but not RE0. Thanks for the answer, guess I am going to get one.

Double that. XM6 is an interesting one, looking forward to read your review on XM6.

Wait until my VorzPure arrive in September, I might do a comparison between E7, iFuzenHP-1, XM6 and VorzPure. Not much, but should be enough for some nice perspective on it's overall sound (I hope).

Slightly off topic but I thought the readers of this thread would appreciate it: Sound Earphones has the Cruise for $384 w/ coupon code GETAMPED. They are an authorized dealer and I think you get free overnight shipping.

Great deal, too bad they don't ship to New Zealand.

Not to Norway either :( Well I heard the Stride was lighter anyway. So close to getting one now. Just need to find out if it can run purely on battery power and if the dac works with the Galaxy S3

Too bad they don't ship everywhere because the Cruise is eye candy in addition to sonic bliss!

I just ordered the Portaphile 627 and, within hours of submitting my order, Cesar e-mailed me, letting me know he'll ship it out tomorrow.  He also asked if I was a member of Head-Fi and that he's offering a $50 discount during August, and to feel free to spread the word on Head-Fi.  He seems like an awesome guy!

Thanks for sharing the great deal on a great amp!  And Cesar is truly a pleasure to deal with!

This amp is incredibly tempting if it were not for the four hour battery life. Can a separate battery pack be used as others have done with the Stepdance?

Yes, external battery packs can be used.  Cesar may know of some, but I am sure a search could find something that may work, but you might need an adapter cable.
