My MKII came with OPA209 and the constant static interference is bothering me too much.  Is there a cheaper place to buy AD8610  installed with dip adapter? $42 shipped from Leckerton is steep.

Hmm that sucks sold my unit with that pair in it. I have 627 AP available though if you are interested in them?

How do they sound? I just want a neutral sound with little to no static interference.

I wouldn't call it quite neutral. It's more musical. Big sound stage. Euphoric-mids and textured-bass. Treble is smooth. Non-fatiguing sound.

For Sale :D Since i am going HD800 this wont be able to drive it T_T

 

also i sold my two IEMs since i wont need a portable AMP for a long time.

hi,

Does anyone know if the warranty on uha-6s mkII is transferable? Might get it used and save a few bucks, if its not, will get it new. Finally does the amp with op amp 8610 hiss with sennheiser ie80's? Thanks.

Yep it sure is :). Just make sure you have the original receipt :). I also have some Op Amps available if you want to pick those up from me ;).

 

8610 will not hiss on the IE80 and should pair well IMO.

Thanks lee. Cant find any for sale at the moment. As for the op amps thanks for the offer, but dont think will be changing them when i decide to get my unit. Have to wait till the end of the month to buy one as leckerton aren't shipping any till then. :(

Completely agree with this assessment

post #1184 of 2196

Just received today the UHA-6s-mkii (thanks to "lee730");

 

plugged it to my "Stoner Acoustics UD100"

maximized the computer volume to 100%

plugged my HiFiMAN RE0 IEMs (64 Ohm , 100 db)

lowered the volume to min, and started the device;

 

the lowest volume setting in the UHA, is 7 o'clock, right?

now, i don't even reach 8, before the volume is too loud!

 

when i plug it directly (use it as dac/amp) , then i can reach 9 o'clock. but i prefer the DAC of the UD100.

 

Am I doing something wrong?

or is the UHA is just too much for the RE0 ? (but they DO need an amp.)

 

I am "suffering", because it's going to be too high volume or too low... and i'm not a high volume listener.

 

thanks!

If you're driving the Leckerton from the headphone jack on your source, it is probably sending too-high a signal. Does it have a line-level output jack?
Also make sure the gain switch on the Leckerton is set to low.
