Should I bother with this thing, and what opamps would be best to obtain for these headphones?

Well the op amps are socketed which means you can roll op amps. Considering you're a HD800 and LCD2 owner you probably have the funds to go for the gusto. Why not just order all the different op amps from Leckerton and enjoy the experimentation. If that doesn't appeal to you then email Leckerton the same message you posted here and ask what he suggests.

Does an iPhone 4 cause audible interference when in use with the UHA-6S MKII?

post #142 of 2203

It did at times with my UHA4. Easy solution is to enable Plane mode and no issue after that.

Measurements for the Leckerton. Really nice.

Plane mode prevents incoming calls, right?

^ Yes, all communication is turned off.

I'm going to have to switch playing devices away from the iPhone, then. It appears all, if not most, amps get interference from the phone portion of the iPhone.

You can't go wrong with Leckerton IMO ;). Now if they come up with an updated UHA6 with a Digital Pot and Cross-feed I'm all over that.

I was surprised you went with the UHA-6S MKII, Lee, lacking those two very things you liked about the UHA series.

post #149 of 2203

Well I ultimately go for sound quality and the UHA6 does excel in that area overall. Plus I had the UHA4 and wanted an upgrade. If it wasn't stolen I'd still have it as well :).

Good to see that this thread is finally starting to show a little more life.Hey lee did you get around to getting that tool for swapping out your opamps with? I'm rather curious how easy/hard it was.
