Mine lands on Thursday so look for impressions from me the following week. Really looking forward to it!

My early impressions using the ck10 are that it is a super clean and transparent amp. Very black background. Most noticeable is the soundstage depth. It is noticeably deeper and more 3D than the iPhone or nano HO, so I'm guessing this means an improved dynamic range over the on board Apple daps.

Also it's smaller than I anticipated and 3.5 IN location means I needs a new super short LOD for optimal mating to my players.

Oddly it seems laid back or less aggressive and in your face as the iPhone 4 and Nano 6g headphone outs. I'm not sure what to make of this perceived difference.

So it will take you some time to figure if this is a good thing or a bad thing? :) I love smooth sound but there has to be a balance. Too smooth and it can become boring. But with the right balance it's a very euphoric and enjoyable sound for longer listening sessions. That is at least what I got from my UHA4 amp.

I'm really interested in the UHA-6S MK2 but I'm not quite sure which OPAMP I would want. Does anyone even know the differences between these all?

Ask and you shall receive

It appears Nick made it the standard opamp now.  I think it is the most neutral sounding but that's a subjective thing, not sure any would measure flatter than the other or it's perceived.  The 627 sounds richer, lusher but darker yet still very clear.  The 8610 is brightest sounding w/ accentuation in treble and bass for a bit of excitement at both ends but nothing overly exaggerated, think fun side of neutral.  These 209 has the most air, balance and transparency to the recording IME using the UHA6S mk1.  I haven't tried any others yet so there might be a hidden gem still to be found.

Oh! That's weird, so the standard/cheapest one is the most neutral-ish? Why would you opt for a non-neutral one? Not to mention pay more for it?

Different strokes for different folks. Some people want a little touch of warmth others want more emphasized extension on both ends for a more fun v shaped sound others might want clean clear with some added bass slam others might not like to much treble because they're sensitive to the highs. It all comes down to what you think would work best for you. From my understanding they're all somewhere in the ballpark of neutral just a slightly different flavor is all. If you're unsure what would work best for you why not try emailing Leckerton and tell the owner what attributes you're looking for specifically. From my understanding the owner, Nick, of Leckerton Audio is a pretty approachable and helpful guy.

Oh I see okay okay that makes sense. Personally I like trebles to be a little less and bass to be a little more but I don't want to risk getting something too colored so I was thinking with just going with treble and instead aiming for that sound in my iems/headphones.
