I own the iBasso P4, but am suffering from Gear Acquisition Syndrome and want to understand the differences among these three portable amps.

 

thank you,

I had the P4. Tried many different opamps (including HiFlight's kit). The UHA 6S MKII is just way better.

So how are you enjoying Op-Amp 627AP? Have you tried 209 again yet lol. I can't go back to 209 anymore. Just goes overboard and not nearly as enjoyable as 8610. 627AP is my second favorite but barely gets used these days either...

I did tried the 209 but its not nice to listen to at all. The 627 on the leckerton pairs very well with the w3000anv when using my desktop Dac as the source.

Yeah for me its just too transparent. Sounds artificial to me and I get fatigued fast. So not that great IMO.

uelover,

Can you be more specific about the Leckerton?  I realize it is a DAC, too. The P4 is only an amp.

I see the shipping date has siliently slipped back to the 25th on their site.

 

EDIT: Full retraction and apology to the good folk at Leckterton, who have in fact replied to all my emails.

You know what NZ something isn't right here. He always responds to me in a timely manner. I'll send him an email myself and I'll direct him to this very post so he can answer.

They've lost a sale here, I've had no response to three separate contacts over ten days. Pretty pathetic customer service, inspires no confidence whatsoever. I guess if you order from them you had better hope nothing goes wrong with your unit.


I have sent him an email last week and not have had any response also.

Well Nick responded to me so something is wrong on your ends (spam folder). I'll post his reply below. It is not like Nick to purposely ignore his customers. I did respond back and recommended he just create a headfi account and address your concerns on this thread.

 

 

Thanks for letting me know. I do respond to every single customer   

email I receive. This is why my customer service is regarded so   

highly. In fact, I have responded to all 3 of Murray's emails. If he   

were to check his spam folder, he would probably see them. I do not   

have an active account on Head-fi so I am not able to respond directly. 

 

Regards, 

Nick

He responded to me a few hours ago. Probably got caught up with work for the past days.

At least from what I heard the c421 is more comparable to the UHA4 not in the same league as the UHA6. You get what you pay for.

post #585 of 2193
If it is in fact in a different league from the c421, then it's one hack of a value. I went from a uha 4 to a c421 and find it to be a pretty significant upgrade. Not that I didn't like the uha 4, I liked it a lot. But it was lacking a little too much on transparency and extension. But that was with the stock opamp, so maybe the 209 opamp is more of an upgrade than I thought. I'm now interested.
