Sweet pic!

 

For OP amp considerations about SQ, read the past several pages.  It has been discussed in depth.

I only have the 8610 which sounds very good. Never tried other opamp's.

Thanks guys. This amp is very transparent and neutral. It pairs nicely with my diymods and EX1000 for that specific sound I go for. No complaint.

The 8610 and 4627 sound extremely similar to my ears. I'm not positive I could tell them apart in a blind test. Of course YMMV.

Hey guys! I'm selling my leckerton uha-6s with ADA4627 & OPA209 op amps. I'm also open to trading it for a uha-4 so if any of you want to upgrade to a uha-6 and own a uha-4, this would be a great deal!

I needed the digital pot volume control. UHA-6S is amazing but I don't have the gear to appreciate it :(

Although this is off topic and of peripheral interest, I've recently finally snagged a bright shiny new Kojo KM01-Brass amp. Not a trivial thing for someone living in the US.

 

However, due to Japanese translation difficulties while ordering, plus no doubt operator error, I've somehow ended up with a couple of extra 3mm mini-mini (TRS) cables also from Kojo (KOJO KM01-OP1). Given the level of Japanese audio equipment quality demanded, I assume that these interconnect cables are of highest quality, which is why I also bought the accessory cable(s) while I had the opportunity.

 

And I am now willing to sell these spare Kojo cables at basically my cost + shipping; first come, first served. A unique opportunity for USA and other audiphiles who normally don't have access to Japanese audio equipment restricted to domestic sales only, for a high-end portable interconnect cable at a fairly reasonable price. PM me if interested.

 

Here is the translated cable product description from a Japanese distributer:

 

KM01-OP1 EMC shielded cable adopts copper alloy gold-plated PC-OCC transmission of high-quality, plug-in conductor. As electromagnetic guard sleeve, hull is suppressing the influence of external noise.

 

Both ends stereo mini-plug
Cable length: 110mm

How does the UHA-6 MKii (with optical) compared to Modi/Magni?

IMO, better. Much smoother and better imaging.

Oh WOW!, so the UHA-6S is that good.

I'm also quite interested in the new upcoming C5D, it's priced around the UHA-6S.

It was mostly about smoothness and soundstage. M&M was a bit too harsh for me.

I actually prefer something transparent.

I want to hear the headphones, not the DAC.

Yup. Both are very transparent. It's just that leckertons sounds more liquid.

But how would you know?
If you have to run something through something, ie can't be run alone... You can make inferences and assumptions based on lots of stuff but you'll never know.

Yes, shatterer of dreams, destroyer of hope, eater of pasta... wait.
