Are you going to review the quickstep in the future?

I have the "early" JH16s.  I guess those are the non-fregphase ones and yes, the 627 would be used with them exclusively as I don't own, and don't plan to own any other CIEMs for a while.  Thanks Joe.  I truly appreciate your opinion.

Hopefully, but I have a large backlog I am working through before I take on anything else.

No problem, happy to help.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hey average_joe, do you have any plans on ever reviewing some japanese amps such as the wagnus epsilon s?

Or like mass kobo model 385? :p

I can do my best to find a way to have a mass kobo 385 sample review from the designer but I am not sure if average_joe is able to review it. I know he is always busy getting something reviewed.

That would be a bit impractical as many who own it say it is useless with iems due to severe hiss :/

It is just a plug in adapter.

Your welcome!  I am nearing completion of a CIEM review that has been a very long time coming.  I will be glad to finally have it done, and once I get through 3 more CIEM reviews, I will have time for more amps (after a few cables, of course ;)).

Not at the moment.  I do have several sources that I am toying with...

I would love to, but unfortunately I don't have the time to review any other gear than I have planned.

post #254 of 279

Hi there, this is a great review thread... could someone give me some advice? I am wondering if the Leckerton UHA 6S MKII would have enough power to drive the latest version of Mad Dogs? I actually need a portable DAC/amp combo that supports playback from my macbook air and my HTC One X via USB OTG. I will also be using my Shure SE215 IEMs with this setup. My budget is around $250-300. Thanks so much in advanced.

Not sure if I looked up the correct specs for your phones, but I think they're ~50 ohm impedance.  My UHA-6SmkII can almost drive my DT990's which are 600 ohms, so I would think your Mad Dogs would do fine.    (To be clear, I am able to listen to the DT990's out of this amp, I just can't push them to ear splitting volumes like I could with my Fiio E7/E9 combo.)
