W4S Mini-Integrated (mINT) - Anybody have one yet?

I was planning to get one ASAP, but naturally ran into financial issues.

 

One of the main reasons why I want this over anything else (besides the great price) is that there's a true line out that's not affected by the volume control at the front, so you can use the headphone out and have powered speakers plugged into the back and work them simultaneously.

I am interested too.  I guess we will see some reviews soon, in couple of weeks,   because I heard that some units already out, and next batch will be shipped in Feb.

Srajan Ebaen over at 6 Moons has published what I presume is his "preview" review:

I almost invested in one of these for my speaker rig, but since I went with Maggies I needed more power.

Do these have more power than the v200?  I haven't looked at the specs...

Breaking one in now.

 

Have a few hours on the DAC/amp section and initial impresions are favorable.  The mINT was able to drive a pair of Marten Django's without breaking a sweat.  The combo had great imaging and spacial info too!

 

Using the headphone section for the first time tonight.  Even out of the box it was more transparent than the Burson HA-160D I heard at my dealer, but will wait until the headphone section has some time on it before stating my impressions.

Ya I'd like to read some impressions of the mint vs the Lavry da11 and v200 which I currently use. But if it can do both well I may just have to sell my things to get the mint.

Now that I have some time on it, I can write a little blurb.

 

The speaker section sound great, as mentioned above.

 

The headphone section seemed a little harsh at first, but that is now gone.  The HF section is now very smooth, transparent, with no harshness or coloration...just like the rest of their products.  It powers my AKG K550's with ease, but the real test will be in a month or two when I pick up a pair of HiFiMan HE-6's.

Does that amp weigh 14 lbs?

post #13 of 29

Nope, shipping weight is 8lbs.

So much for a month or two...  Due to the odd taper of the mINT's volume control, the dial is near 3/4's, but the mINT and HE-6's sound phenomenal together!  Spaciousness, clarity, deep extension, it doesn't get much(if any) better than this.

I have one coming next week and will be pairing it with my LCD-2.

 

Bookshelf speakers are projected next year due to budget issues.

Anyone has any recommendations?

Currently considering Davone Mojo and Harbeth P3ESR.

 

I listen to 60% Jazz, 20% Soundtracks and 15% Pop and 5% Rock.
