This amp is a very special one off built for me by JMT, back when he was still making amps, and is the one piece of audio gear I've never wanted to let go. Alas I simply have not had any time for years now to pick up and listen to headphones, and so I think it's time for this amp to move on to a new home.
This is a custom made maxed out PPA that includes the LaRocco Diamond Buffer, Black Gate capacitors, and internal toroidal power supply. Additional features include switchable dual inputs along with two level crossfeed. The front has a locking Neutrik 1/4th jack, large brushed knob that's attached to a Alps Blue Velvet pot, blue power LED, two toggles to control the two level crossfeed, and one toggle to control the two inputs. The back has two sets of RCA inputs as well as a 1/8th input, 3 prong IEC power cord socket, and the power switch. The 1/8th and RCA inputs closest to it are wired together into one side of the toggle switch and are active simultaneously.
In terms of sound, this amp has left me not really wanting any other headphone amp once I got it, and even after hearing some of the newer ones like the RSA Raptor, I still preferred and came back to this amp. It has a very wide and airy soundstage that I have not found in most other solid state amps, passes through amazing levels of details and has very fast transients. It paired extremely well with my Sennheiser HD650 as well as Etymotics ER4. If you are a detail oriented listener you will love this amp...it's what I originally had it built for.
Cosmetically the front and back face plates are clean; there are a couple of minor hairline scratches on the top from other equipment resting on it that I could not capture in pics.
