The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread - Page 186

post #2776 of 3750

what is the best competition to the gs-x mk2 in the near 300-700 dollars range...

post #2777 of 3750

^ Look here.  You might find a used Violecric V200 for around $700 . . .

Another recommendation for the Violectric V200.  I'm auditioned one recently and really impressed by it.  The V200 warmer tonality is great with the HD800 but maybe a tad warm for other phones though.

At this price range you may want to look at the audio-gd range.... their NFB-6 fully balanced discrete amp is just 399+s&h

 

Won't say it is a competition to the gs-x (it would be the 1500+ Master 7 or 9) but the audio-gd amps are quite transparent and with good control and nfb-6 could be a good stepping stone or stop-gap solution while you wait for the next gs-x batch!

oh thx everybody for your help

 

anybody compared the nfb-6 versus burson soloist versus v200

 

any other cheaper amp use similar minimal wire with gain design as gs-x..

V200 is not a stand in for the GS-X... at all ;)  Even a used GS-1 or if a preamp isn't needed the Lite would be good choices.

post #2784 of 3750

Master 9

post #2785 of 3750

Not $300-$700 :P

I'll second that on the GL. Sounds fan-f***in-tastic!

Same wire with gain topology as it's big brothers.

$200 to $400 used, and it can be yours. :smile:

Don't wanna threadjack here and will PM you my thoughts re v200 and audio-gd separately.
