New high-end headphone amps: Vorzuge VorzAMPpure and VorzAMPduo impressions and review thread - Page 10

post #136 of 269

Hi Shigzeo,

 

I am new to follow this thread.

What is your opinion regarding the combination of Vorzuge Pure and RWAK 100 with FTG 334 / AKG 3003?

I was thinking to combine RWAK 100 + FTG 334 / AKG 3003 with ALO International / Continental V3 before I stumble upon Vorzuge (with said lowered gain setting).

 

How about RSA Intruder vs Vorzuge Pure?

 

Thanks in advance!

Balanced DOES offer more power, but can create offsets in the crossover that changes the intended signature of the IEM. Balanced amps are amazing, but they are better for single driver earphones/headphones, especially dynamic headphones.

 

The Vorüge amps are single ended all the way, and a little big cheaper than the competition because of simpler circuitry. When using such complex earphones, single ended has a lot of advantages. 

 

If you wanted to get heaps and heaps of power from a headpone (like DT880), the RXIII is the way to go. 

 

I'm still making my video. Today, I recorded my video comparing ES7 and DT880 via VorzAMPduo, ALO National, ALO continental II, ALO RxIII, GoVibe Porta Tube+. The VorzAMP and ALO RXIII perform in single ended mode best with armature earphones, but the RXIII does hiss more, though it seems to have (in its latest iteration) a better balance at low volumes. But the VorzAMP honestly is much easier to use with earphones and IEM's. 

 

Personally, I rarely use amps unless it isn't summer when commuting. When it's the fall (and cooler) I prefer a small amp. The VorzAMP is perfect for this.

I don't have the AK100 but I've used it a couple of times. It does better with an amp - at least for earphones like the ones you list. The Vorz runs each of those perfectly. Again, my only complaint is this: its gain is rather high so small volume settings can still be rather loud. However, that sorted, it is one of the most fantastic IEM amps out there.

I will add my "+1" to the TP/Vorzamp Pure. The combo sounds outstanding with my Ultrasone Sig. Pro as well as my Ety ER4. The Pure adds the extra headroom needed for hard low-frequency transients, such as bass drum beats.

Thanks Shigzeo,

I have listened to the amp ans thinking to get either the pure or the duo.
They are amazing amps and the first thing that struck me was how lush it sounded.

Lush is a good word for them, yes.

HiFlight,

Agree on that too.
More clarity, soundstage, and air.
Tubey but solid

New high-end headphone amps: Vorzuge VorzAMPpure and VorzAMPduo impressions a...

Hi! I'm in the market for a potable amp and iem. Looking at the reviews, have decided to go for the Pure. The source is a imod iPod 5.5. For the iem I am looking at Ocharaku Flat 4 Sui. Any bros have this combo? Do I need too request to lower down the gain? Will also be using it with my mad dogs. Thanks

Ocharaku Flat 4 Sui isn't as sensitive. The Mad Dogs.... need more current at high voltages. The Vorz may get you there, but you will probably be pushing it near its utility ceiling. That said, if you listen at lower volumes, you can enjoy Mad Dog, but in well-recorded dynamic situations, the Vorz may clip when strapped to the Dogs. I'm not sure as I don't own the Mad Dogs, but I've heard them clip a number of super portable amps.

my +++1 for the Dou, the most awesomest amp!...............

 

well I am liking it a whole lot, I pair it with CypherLabs latest version of the -R, cudos for that little beasty,

 

I love the Dous bass and the treble boost, it goes uber well along with my ASG-1.2s, I also turn on my ZOv1 once in a while, or run it with no bass or treble boost? the Dou handles the bass and the treble just right! and the ASGs eat it up!

Great that you're enjoying it. The best IEM-amp I've heard up to date.

Anyone tried the Fitear F111 on the VorzAmp? Got myself the F111 and planing on getting the Pure, but am afraid the gain will be too much and I can't use the amp to its full potential.

The F111 as crazy sensitive as some earphones. If you use the likes of Sleek Audio CT7/SA7 with the Vorz, it will be too loud. FitEar's earphones border on 'just right' though the gain is still a bit high. However, it really depends on your listening. I find that in bed, a volume setting of '1' on an iphone or iPod is sometimes too loud. Out and about I typically use volume settings of 5-8 on the same machine. That should give you a sounding board of my pain threshold.
