So I feel they are similar in terms of overall detail but their presentations are quite different. In a sense I can say it is easier for me to perceive the detail on the T1 as it is that much more engaging for me. This is with my DX100 however as it pairs extremely well with it. The UHA6 did excel on my DACport LX though since the DACport had a good width to it's sound staging so they blended well together.


4As or 4ai? ;).


4A's. I'm waiting on an email from Heir before I get my impressions done. I bit on the 40% off sale

If all goes well I already got the Leckerton sold. Just need to sell my Silver Cabled IE80 and MDR-7550s and I'm buying my 8As :).

Just received my UHA6S-MKII, pairs nicely with the DT1350 :-)

According to the receipt it uses the OPA209 (bought it used).

Build quality is impressive. Also the device is really small but much heavier than it looks... I guess thats mainly due to the battery.

The UHA 6SMKII takes in single channel opamp so this module (apart from its humongous size) will not work.

 

You are so clever.  If you take them out, suddenly you have two single channel op-amps.

Yes. Just make sure to turn on the charge switch of it won't work. Also ensure to turn off the charge switch after the charge is done. If you leave the USB plug in with the charge switch on it will drain the battery.

The MDR-7550s are very nice. Very neutral with slightly more bass quantity than the EX1000. This is ideal for me as the EX1000 lacked the bass quantity I wanted and the MDR-7550 manages to give just enough to satisfy my tastes. Also the mid range on the 7550s is very nice, It's romantic. Somewhat mid-centric without going over the top. The mids are more wet in comparison tot the EX1000s dry mids. The treble is also quite detailed without having any noticeable treble spikes to my ears. It goes to the limit and comes back down just before becoming harsh. Its excellent and I'm glad I gave it a shot because I had a very bad experience with the EX1000. The sound staging is still rather large, not quite as large as the EX1000 but still large for an IEM regardless. There is a lot of space within the sound stage (air).

Nice. I am using it right now :) 

For mdr-7550s I found one for 189 bucks new, so some1 else might pick the one that you have.

Just got mine. The DAC is obviously basic (the PCM2706 is an old USB receiver and DAC and isn't particularly good compared to what is available nowadays). The amp section is excellent, however, especially considering that one can fine tune it to suit with various OPAMPs. It has a lovely dead black background with my Sony XBA-3s (using the line in).

PCM2706 is in the UHA-4, not the 6.

I got mine today as well biggrin.gif  Pairing UHA-6S MKII with my iMod as a source.

From this price, you can't ask much for its DAC section. Even though the DAC is not as good as other DAC that is in a higher price range, It's still affordable comparing other DAC/AMP combo available in the market.

The best advantage of this unit is the dead silence background. It's just amazing for IEM's.
