Not yet burnt-in....
I'm gonna try to post up a review when that's done.*
What I can say, right now, is that, cosmetically, it's GORGEOUS.
Sweet black brushed aluminium case, thickness is about the same as two ipod nano biscuits stacked on top of each other, or the FiiO e11. Length is the same as that e11,including the e11 knob. Width maybe 6 mm greater than the e11, a tad heavier. In a "feels more solid and better built" sort of way.
SMALL switches and a recessed volume knob.
VERY CLEAN construction and appearance, which I find esoterically quite appealing.
All of the switches feel tight and crisp, yet effortless.
A very "finger friendly" feel to the thing.
I don't like shiny, finger-printy surfaces much, so this one really does it for me on that issue.
Very classy and refined, sleek.....yet adequately masculine.
I will post up some pix and do a modest audition review, once I feel that it's been burnt for long enough.
Will try it with several IEMs and a couple of cans.
This will be my first real review on HeadFi......
I hope you guys will bear with my lack of review experience.
I certainly can't say that I have CREDENTIALS on any of this, except a REALLY good set of ears and a solid appreciation for acoustic qualities that make speakers,(large and small), and gear sing for us.
And I'm working on the proper vocabulary to talk about these things intelligably here in these forums.
*yah, yah, I'm sure somebody has beat me to this little amp and a review.....just a different set of ears, I guess.........
