This is my first post in this forum, but i am reading here for quite a while. And i want to thank the community for all the great reviews and tips.
I am enjoying my Audeze LCD-3 since january and i am very pleased with it. It is the best headphone i have ever heard. But as always in our hobby, the better your rig gets the more you want. That in mind i want a new headphone amp.
The usual suspects to me were:
The Dark Star
Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire
Red Wine Audio - Audeze Edition
My problem is that there is absolute no way to listen to one of them in my hole country. To compare them and pick the best one for me is impossible. I think there should be some better kind of distribution because here in germany is a small but growing community of headphone enthusiasts. Some of them own the Cavalli but thats it.
Yesterday i ordered the Red Wine Audio - Audeze Edition because i read good reviews here and at innerfidelity and i like the concept of the whole package "Headphone Amp-DAC-Cable"
And very important to me: a 30 Day money back-guarantee. I think it is a big risk to pay 3000-4000k (plus german taxes, and thats a lot) for an amp i never heard. The other two companies sadly didn't offer this service.
Don't get me wrong, i believe these three amps, as different as they are, they are all TOTL. So i hope i made the right decision.
So my question is: Who have heard this amp?
Could you feed me with some impressions ?
I have to wait a couple of weeks til the Red Wine will arrive, and i am really excited.
Thx in advance....:-)
P.S. Apologies for my bad english
