                         Bass impact from Srm 002 I ever heard

Well I had to try out the Pelican with my iPod also and my UM1's.

The Um1's sound so much different on the PB2 in a good way.

Up until now they've been great, However they've been a tad loose and the highs not 

overly expressive.

Running the Um1's through the Pelican has really tightened the bass up and treble is now

crisper and far more evident.

This amp is definately going to be well worth the price I'm paying for it.

Its the first amp Ive had thats over the £200 tag.

Before now my most expensive amps were the Pro-Ject Headbox II at £90, The E17 at £97, The T-box at £56

& the ATH-HA20 at £75.

The iPod pairs really well. Its loaded with 320kbps MP3 files, Which I thought would be a downgrade 

from FLAC which I usually play through my 4s.

However Chris Jones' Road Houses & Automobiles sounded so warm and detailed.

No Sanctuary Here was a treasure to listen to.

 

Anyway, Ill shut up now lol...

Hi y'alls.

Regarding the Tera, I really like it but i carry too much stuff in my pocket, it gets kind of bulky, for me anyway.

Regarding the International, I haven't spent that much time with the National so I can't really say how similar they sound. Also the International is a nice warm amp and is perfect even size-wise with the RWAK100.

Regarding the RWAK100, It can't drive the harder-to-drive cans so I strap an amp to it so I can have a more portable setup for testing cans outside my own home, more portable (and having a larger soundstage) than the ipod-CLAS-dB.

Regarding the V3, the hiss is very very loud on my CIEM and even on the TH900. I loved the V2 for the warmth it gave my TG334s but that one's hiss was manageable.

Er 4 sound is analytical and detail, if we get the right position , has very good bass .

 

stax sr 002 if you get the fitting , sound like his big brother sr 007 mk2 , detail , very sweet 

midrange like tube sound , the bass is also deeper than er 4

The hiss on the v3 is almost gone after 300 hours. But still lacking bass for me. Great détail and warmth though

Burn-in process can reduce the hiss?? wth?!

That's the first I ever heard of it, Doesn't sound entirely out of the question.
