I was amazed to find how well it paired with my FA-002w "High Edition".. that phone is kind of picky with upstream gear.. and man, the ADA4627/UHA sounded wonderful with it.

I was originally thinking about upgrading to a portaphile 627x which is supposed to be the ultimate portable amp. But after the 4627, I don't know if it's worth the money to upgrade. decisions decisions...

FlySweep thanks for your impressions. Nick added the 4627 to the Leckerton product page, and he should have more in by the end of the week. I've already ordered a pair. Looking forward to trying them out.

Great, congrats.. looking forward to your impressions with them.. glad others are trying these out so we can form some consensus on what we like/don't like about it.

 

BTW, I highly recommend dropping the gain (which Nick does for free) on the UHA if you anticipate using it with IEMs most of the time.  Even the stock amp's unity gain was too high for my JH13Pro... an IEM that, despite some very sensitive specs, demands more volume than expected.

 

..speaking of which.. the 4627/UHA sounds phenomenal with the JH13Pro.  In fact, the "feel" of the sound reminds me an awful lot of the Violectric V200.. the V200 is slightly warmer sounding.. and the ADA4627 has a smidge more (welcome) treble presence, in comparison.  Both are remarkably, smooth, neutral sounding amps with seemingly "kindred" voicing.  Timbre, soundstage and resolution, in particular, is quite noteworthy with the 4627.  As I've said before, it's the most "complete" sounding opamp I've heard in the UHA.

^ What do you usually listen to with the UHA?

I might just get another UHA with ADA4627 and call it a day.

Gear?  Laptop or Galaxy S3 (OTG allows me to output USB Audio) > ODAC > UHA > JH13/AS-2

 

Music?  Boy, where do I start.. it would be easier to mention what I don't listen to (country).  I listen to a ton of (independent) hip hop.. as well as jazz, soul, funk, blues, R&B, lots of diverse electronic music, downtempo, prog-rock, Indian Classical music, modern world music, atmospheric jungle/drum 'n bass.. the list goes on, man!

I meant gear, mainly IEMs vs headphones because you mentioned the gain, but now I know who to PM for recommendations in those genres. biggrin.gif

I didn't realize you went through the ODAC on the go, especially since the UHA has a built in DAC section. That's a manlier rig than I'll ever carry. smily_headphones1.gif

Edit: I usually am on the mobile site and can't see signatures. =/

It's amazing to me how few of these amps get posted in the "for sale" section. One was posted over the weekend and sold almost immediately. I take that as a testament to user satisfaction...

Yup. Most users seems to be very satisfied with this amp. I'm one of them.

This thread is also usually pretty quiet because everyone who owns this amp is too busy enjoying it tongue.gif
