New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added... - Page 5

I think if you message Anaxilus or Nick from Leckerton audio they both could fill you in nicely what would work best for you. I haven't ordered a UHA-6 MKII as of yet but I intend to get one down the road. Right now I'm thinking maybe around Xmas or in the coming new year. With my UHA-4 I went with the standard opamp which is known for being neutral with just a light touch or warmth which keeps the sound from falling into the to analytical and harsh side of things. I also know our fellow tribe members from the thread we both like to hang out in use the standard opamp configuration with their UHA-6S MKI amps. They all seem to be happy with what they chose.

Awesome thanks for the information. I'll go with the standard one then.

Remember to hurry back with impressions and if possible cool pics. Congrats on the new amp I think you've picked wisely and will enjoy it a lot. i would recommend a little more research into the opamp though just to be absolutely sure it's what you're looking for.

The mk2 really sounds great with my Merlin. This is the cleanest and most transparent my rig has sounded. Great bass control and air around the instruments. Depth is superb. Definitely enjoying this combination.

Hey Shane,

can you give a comparison of it to the arrow4g, and tell us how good its dac section is?

 

thanks bud

I'm waiting on delivery for mine.  However, it uses the same Cirrus DAC chip is used in the predecessor UHA-6S, which I had the pleasure of owning.  Granted it may not be implemented the same, but it does sound very good, and was noticeably better over the UHA-4 DAC.

I agree on the last bit.  I was wondering why you sold the UHA6S mk1 lol.

Sometimes I ask myself the same question and like a giant rock, it doesn't go anywhere.  I've even pondered on purchasing it back from Panges (sold it to) to compare.  The overall specs between the two are very close.

That one had the 8610 chip right?  I would have loved to hear your thoughts versus the 2.  I assume you got the stock 209 in the mk2.

post #72 of 2196

Correct on both accounts.

post #73 of 2196

Imma buy one soon!  Hopefully it's quick shipping to Australia!

I haven't done a direct a/b but it's really no contest. The mk2 is a much better amp. The clarity and transparency is amazing. It also has better bass control and better soundstage depth than the arrow. The arrow has a more upfront presentation that works well for hard rock and metal and a very well done bass boost. I also like the mk2 more than the O2.

I haven't tried the Dac section yet. I don't do much computer listening but will this weekend. The mk2 pretty much ends my searching for a highly resolving and transparent amp.

Thanks for your impressions shotgunshane,

 

It seems like the UHA-6s mk.2 is a real gem in its pricerange. Resolving, transparent with good soundstage depth and without being aggressive with sensitive IEMs and considering it's still (at least for me) portable, I think it's hard to find something better for below 300$.

 

Also looking forward to hear your impressions about the DAC section of the amp.
