Looking Good Mate,

Probably to soon to say, but how does the Voyager differ from your PB2 with the Solo? I take it the voyager is just SE input / output?

I'm going to wait a while before I pass proper judgement.

Yes the Voyager is Single Ended only. But so far I'm very impressed.

It has two settings, - Flat or Contour. In the instructions Contour is advised for poorer headphones but I'm finding it very usefull with 

bigger cans like the Beyer's. It adds more body.

 

As a whole so far I'm finding the Voyager to be a slightly warm ( just a smidge ) & natural amp, No noticeable floor noise on headphones. ( Havent tried my IEM's yet )

Actually I would say so far, Out of all my amps this one has the least noticeable background noise.

And I swear I'm hearing information that I haven't before, Like the Voyager is delving deeper and pulling out more detail. ( Does that make sense? )

 

As I said I will wait a while before I compare the Voyager against the Pelican, 

 

1, Because my HD25's dont have the single ended adaptor yet.

2, One is balanced, One isn't.

3, I want to let the Voyager settle in a bit first.

 

To my ears at this moment, The Voyager single ended has an edge over the Pelican single ended, Again, More body. 

But I will wait like I said. wink.gif

 

I'm currently listening to "For Whom The Bell Tolls" By Metallica on their Ride The Lightning album, And Damn it's lively!!

Sweet,

I've been doing some quick comparisons between my ALO National and new ALO Rx Mk3-B Amp and as it stands at the moment the Rx is definately a better amp sound wise..........a more wider soundstage and not as dark as The National. Vocals seem to have more body and better instrument separation. Can't wait to add the Solo to it.......I'm also going to have to have a word with Frank regarding either re-terminating my Silver Poison to a balanced connection or just get a second one. I'm probably thinking a new Balanced Silver Widow for the a.4i :-)

The balanced White Widow Frank made for my HD25's has really changed them in a positive way, And they already sounded the dogs danglie's! & Thats only in a half balanced setup.

definitely worth the money Jason :)

Currently paired with my iPhone 4S and Heir A.4i

All I need now is for my AlgoRhythm Solo to arrive along with my AK100, Audiosonic ASG 1.2 and a bunch of new cables :-)

Congrats Jason for your new audio gear collection .biggrin.gif
Please share your impression here too

Cheers Rudi,

I think on findings so far the ALO National Amp may be on its way to the "For Sale" section......

Just out of curiosity for IEM's direct out of the stock AK100 what would you recommend......I'm thinking Tzar 350 at the moment.

I think Heir Audio sells them together, as a package deal...

Yeah I'm aware of that mate....but I have just bought my AK100 second hand and ideally looking for the Tzar 350 second hand as well. I'm in no hurry for the Tzars as I will use the AK100 with the Rx initially if I need to.

Hi Rudi,

My musical tastes are extremely varied and cover pretty much all genres except classical and opera. Mainly though it tends to be Accoustics stuff, Rock, Jazz (especially female vocals), artists such as Maria Mena, Tori Amos, Allison Krause, Ani diFranco, the list just goes on.
