I am going to buy the V200 from Robert at Aphrodite Cu29, well he'll be sending it out in a day or two. He's also sending me a V181 to play with and they will both be getting reviews as well.



LOL Zom maybe he will give a real nice discount for two amps.

I have never heard music like this before. So smooth, so warm, so engaging. I find myself listening to the whole song, instead of breaking it down and focusing on different aspects as much.



Thanks and I agree both the amp is very good and Robert is tops and one great guy to deal with.

That's one thing about Robert, man, he loves letting folks hear different things.

He has allowed me to audition several things, and no pressure to buy.

I've sent some things back and have purchased others.

So, i suppose he knows what he's doing.

Interesting to hear about the sx-650!  Hope I get to hear the v200 sometime soon as well.

Ricky the SX650 can hold its own and out perform most gheadphone amps today. The higher up the Pioneer vintage food chain the better it gets

Great review, Frank!  I agree on all counts.  I use it with T1's and a W4S DAC-2 as a source and it really is engaging.  Refreshingly addictive you might say.  My poor Woo has been on forced vacation since the V200 arrived ;)

This man speaks true words. I purchased mine from Aphrodite Cu29 as well.

 

The V200, Rega DAC, and Blue Heaven RCAs are so damn good together. Just winwinwin all around. Warm, engaging, detailed, FUN. The thing makes no noise either and doesn't get to warm. I have a picture-a-day calendar on top of it. I feel the V200 really does shine with better recorded music...you can really tell what era music was recorded in. 

 

Currently listening to George Duke's A Brazilian Love Affair for the first time and like it quite a bit.
