The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread

post #1 of 3768
Thread Starter 

Since we've hijacked the GS-1 thread, I thought its about time this wonderfully versatile, clean and transparent amp got its own new thread. smile.gif

 

I mean how many amps can drive sensitive IEMs, low impedance/highly efficient dynamic headphones, high impedance headphones and orthos?

 

Here's a photo of mine:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Waiting on the new upgrade modules in about a month's time. Good times! 

 

Oh and can you tell I'm a big Leaf fan?. tongue.gif 

 

UPDATE: Added a photo of my new black beauty...GS-X MK2:

I thought it a good transition from the GS-1 thread to the GS-X thread.

 

Oh, let's not talk hockey. I imagine you're a Sens fan.

Nope, lets just say that the NHL being on lock out doesn't bug me one bit ;)

I'm lazy but you should drudge up the new pics Justin's been teasing and compile them on the first post!

Really isn't much to show but here's a start.

 

 

 

The work the vendors wont do - the painfully boring/slow task of shaving off the powdercoating burrs.  I get parts of the panels/sides masked off so that when the box is assembled, the whole thing conducts and is earthed.

Hoo boy.  Just ordered a bunch of XLR connectors for re-terminating and interconnect fun.  So close!

post #12 of 3768
Is this first batch sold out?
post #13 of 3768

1 closer if nothing else... ordered.

post #14 of 3768

Oh, a new GS-X thread.

Now I don't have to go searching around for that GS-1 thread every time.

 

Putting some serious thought into ordering one of the new amps this week. Good to hear that there is hopefully still room on the list for the first batch. At the last count Justin mentioned there being about 10 left (correct me if i'm mistaken here), so minus 2-3 at most since then?

 

Now... silver or black, that is the question.

post #15 of 3768

No question, only black being made.
