New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added... - Page 11

Sorry still haven't done so lol. Then again I've been enjoying the sound signature so much :).

If I go with OPA209 and listen with what was always considered a fun headphone, will it still sound fun?

post #153 of 2097

I doubt it will have any negatives as most seem to enjoy it. But Op Amp 8610 seems to me more musical while Op 209 would be cleaner & clinical sounding (I have the O2 for that flavor already).

If your headphones played long haired, dope smoking, sexual innuendo laced rock-n-roll before, with the opa209, they will only play Slim Whittman. tongue.gif

My Merlin is still fun with opa209.

Is anyone having a problem charging the amp while using it as a USB DAC/Amp?  My amp will sometimes charge and work at the same time, but sometimes when I turn on the charge switch,  there is no output to  my headphone. thanks

post #161 of 2097

Can't report that I'm having those issues. Then again I don't find the DAC to be as good as my DACport LX so I won't bother using that feature. However I have gotten around to putting OP Amp 209 in and I must admit it is pretty nice. I can't say though that I prefer it to 8610. It is more transparent, the emphasis has shifted to treble which isn't a bad thing but it's different. The mid range is clearly superior on OP Amp 8610 and it has a slight warmth to the sound. Its more natural sounding and more enjoyable overall.

So was it a pain to switch out the op amps or was it pretty straight forward?

It's quite easy once you get the hang of it. As long as  you use a DIP Extractor or even a pair of tweezers its quite simple. You just unscrew the 2 front screws and slip the circuit board out of the casing. Then use a DIP extractor and steadily wiggle the Op Amp from the socket. There are 2 Op Amps so you take out 2 and put in 2. It took me less than 5 minutes to do. The second time around took 3 mins. I'm starting to warm up to Op Amp 209. I'm glad I have both options to be honest as it really offers versatility. Now to buy more OP Amps ;). I want to get one that will make the sound very organic like the TTVJ Slim as I feel that would pair extremely well with the Studio V.

You're talking a tubey sound. Best go to the TTVJ Slim appreciation thread maybe you can find out the op amp it uses there or maybe Romy or kiteki might have a good idea what op amp to mess with.

I wonder how much difference there is with sound between the UHA 6S  and the MKII model other than different op amps?
