New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added... - Page 125

But... what about the amp section?! Interested.

post #1862 of 2165

If it has the amp section of the 6S, I just might have to sell my 6S and get one of these. :-)  I really like the 192K sample rate and the cross feed.  I wish the USB input would support higher than 16/48 (at least 24/96), but I'll wait and see the reviews.

Oh, and BTW- welcome. Sorry about your wallet.

Don't worry, your mkII doesn't seem to be missing you much... :-D

I'll absolutely want to hear one of these once they hit the market. I wonder if one will make its way to my neck of the woods for CanJam?

Guys I'm selling my ADA4627 op-amps for $25, shipping included, to CONUS if anyone wants them. I don't hear enough of a difference with the 8610, but maybe others will.

Just started using Leckertons as a DAC through optical input. I can say that it is much better than USB input. In fact, possibly better than AK100's DAC.

What are the differences?

Better clarity and detail. Also better resolution, but the sound is slightly less smooth(probably due to them being so revealing).

Some news about the 760, from an e-mail today:

The new UHA760 Upsampling USB DAC and Amplifier will be shipping this fall
I'm excited to share some new information about the upcoming UHA760 Upsampling USB DAC and Amplifier combo. I'm currently working on a few final design tweaks of the pre-production model. As soon as I have everything to my liking, I'll be starting up production, with the first units expected to ship later this fall.

I do a lot of my listening over USB using source material sampled at 44.1 kHz (like my CD collection, Spotify streaming, etc). With the UHA760, my goal is to provide a high-end amp geared for that type of use. I've included an asynchronous upsampler because this enables some improvements to the digital-to-analog conversion process. I've incorporated digital volume control and a three-position gain adjustment because it allows precise control of the volume setting and guarantees channel matching even at the lowest volume setting (great for sensitive IEMs!). I've included a two-position crossfeed control with bypass, handy for reducing listener fatigue on recordings with hard panning or excessive stereo separation.

For more information on the features mentioned here and some additional enhancements you can expect to see on the UHA760, take a look at my recent blog post:
http://www.leckertonaudio.com/blog/2013/10/a-look-at-the-new-uha760-upsampling-usb-dac-and-amp

The UHA760 will be regularly priced at $439, and I will be offering a special, limited-time introductory price of $379. Details of that sale will be made available on the website and on this email list.

I will be buying one. Leckerton knows what's up.
post #1870 of 2165

No S/PDIF? Aww.

post #1871 of 2165

Damn. New Leckerton Amp is expensive. I wonder how much better they will be than UHA-6S.MKII. If it is better, that would be one of the best portable amps.

I'm sold on the 3 level gain and digital volume. Love it.
post #1873 of 2165
Interested to see how Leckerton implements the analog controlled digital volume control a la Meier. Looks like a solid product. 24/96 over USB wouldn't have hurt though for those that have the files. smile.gif

And crossfeed. Freaking trifecta. If the SQ is equivalent to UHA6SmkII it will be well worth every penny.

I'd like for the SQ to be better than the uha-6s mkii. I only paid $200 used for mine, so it wouldn't be worth the upg otherwise. I really hope Nick has a trade-in program though.
