New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added... - Page 45

post #661 of 2090

So I've had my UHA-6S.MKII for a couple months now (with 627 opamps) and it's just awesome.  Together with my new V-MODA M100s I feel like I have a truly great transportable rig, and at least for the moment don't need to obsess about any further purchases.  I've also experimented with feeding the Leckerton from the tube output of my TubeDAC 11 at home - so many options, and so little time!

At least from what I'm hearing that added clarity is making the treble that much more fleshed out and fatiguing for me, the digital artifacts in the recording could also be playing a roll in this as this OP amp really makes that apparent.. A nice benefit however is I tend to listen at even lower volumes due to this on this particular OP Amp but at the same time it also takes away some of the enjoyment factor. Feed a poorly mastered track to this Op Amp and it's heartlessly destroys it lol.

 

Have you tried on better recordings? Sounds like it is an issue with your songs rather than the opamp which is being true to its source.

I connect the lineout from my desktop tube DAC to the Leckerton via a RCA to 3.5mm cable and the sound is magnificent! So much better than using its internal DAC.

Yeah I have. I'm just pointing out on bad recording its just that much worse. There are some tracks where it excels at but not many IMO. It's kinda like having a boutique headphone that only excels at certain genres. Just it's not my cup of tea nor is it my favorite on this amp. But to each his own :).

I have zero treble fatigue and have never thought the 209 sounds bright. I think the uha-6 I own is the most transparent amp I've heard. It basically removes itself from my audio chain without adding color. This is what bring me more enjoyment to my music. I also don't think the T1 amp has better treble extension. Just throwing my counter opinion out there, since the treble fatigue and brightness opinion is oft repeated.

Check your spam folder. This seems to get mentioned every week. He responds pretty quickly. Not sure why his emails are going to so many spam folders.

That's sweet. Means he may have charged you over to ensure shipping was covered and just refunded you the diff. Most companies don't do that in this situation and will actually milk you for shipping. A very common thing here in Hawaii I've noticed.
