New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added... - Page 22

Hmm, as far as I know you want to use the WASAPI plugin for Foobar on Windows 7 if you want to bypass the Sound Mixer in Windows.

Thanks for correcting my post. I read somewhere that XP needed it but not windows 7.

 

Anyway, here is how you do it, Windows 7 WASAPI USB audio set up guide

Given the timeframe and mention of similar price/features/etc, I would guess either the iBasso D10 or the GoVibe ____ (whatever the appropriate model name was... magnum? vulcan?)

The length & width of the case is literally the size of the ODAC board (add a couple of mm for the case thickness).  Height is half an inch.

Edit: Bought! 

 

Not trying to get off topic. If I'm starting from scratch, re-ripping every cd from apple lossless to flac, what media player do you recommend for the windows platform that will play nicely with the UHA-6 MKII? Does it matter?


You know you can convert your Apple lossless over to FLAC without sound degradation? I do this all the time. I use Monkey Audio to convert APE back to WAV. Then I use FLAC Front-end to convert the WAV to FLAC.

Thanks! The only GoVibe with optical input seems to be Vulcan but it's much more expensive than the Leckerton. iBasso D10/D12 it is then... not that surprising actually :D

Have you even considered the Leckerton as an option? Supposedly the only portable amp that can hold a candle to it is the ALO MKIII and that amp is more than double its price. Food for thought. Doubt the ibasso will compete with it in terms of sound quality. I consider the amp section on the Leckerton superior to the one on the DX100.

I think they are talking about guessing which amp was used in the comparison.

o-o

I know which amp it is in the comparison. I can't confirm or deny it, but someone here *MAY* have already guessed it. And that's as far as I'll go. cool.gif

Enjoying my Leckerton tremendously right now tongue.gif

 

Does anyone have recommendation for an affordable desktop amp with at least the same performance as the Leckerton? The Lake People G-103P review from a certain member piqued my interest. And no O2, it seems to mask detail compared to the Leckerton and shall go on sale as soon as I decided on a new amp.

lol mask detail? Not sure if I'd agree with that 100% but I agree the Leckerton is superior to it. I actually just sold mine to fund my Tralucent T1 Portable Amp. That amp is also better.

Well it wouldn't be the D12. That one is much more recent. Keep in mind those measurements are from the mk1 days. I will assume that both companies have made improvements since then.

The desktop amp that comes to mind as having a similar sound to the UHA-6 is the Gilmore Lite.
