Ortofon new portable amp: MHd-Q7 photos, impressions, and review - Page 2

post #16 of 88

Not to sound like a total ass, but what is the going $ for these?  I'm seeing about $25 worth of parts in thereconfused_face.gif

I'm a fan of their Carts but it seems like the price might be for the case. Which looks really nice!!

I dont make amps so I really cannot tell what parts are used inside it but yes compared to how my arrow 4G looks inside it the is really not going on inside that amp.

How does the Arrow 4G sound in comparison to the MHd-Q7? Pricewise they're both similar $299 vs $295.

Sorry I forgot to add I found those pictures online, I have not bought the MHd-Q7 amp yet, I was googling for what opamp was used inside the MHd-Q7 and I found those pictures by accident. However I own the O2 and Arrow 4G and I have been using Arrow 4G alot more, even more than my desktop amp. 

Arrow 4G sounds like a 500 dollar amp.

Sean,

 

I have one at the moment on pre-order, I'll post here my impressions with my UEPRM's and DX100 combo. Shipped out on the 20th of February from Music Acoustics.

U have the UEPRM!?!? I'd love to hear impressions about THAT! I'd love to get a pair of customs done with that but alas, they only have very few offices in US that have the device for custom tuning.

I've had it for about 2 weeks now?

Well I've used it with the DX100, and the tralucent.

 

Via the DX100 the sound is actually very organic provided that my numbers are 55/44/48.

 

I made it so that so my mids were more forward added in slight bass and the treble is less harsh.

 

So far, compared to the MG6Pro, UERM, and the fitear I love it's ability to portray such amazing imaging. The midrange even though I set it a few decibels higher than the rest of the chart, it doesn't get in the way it's like you get this feeling of everything is involved but it's still there up in front with the back up of the highs and the lows. The UERM's have a more forward midrange and is just a tad brighter than the PRM's. Soundstage is about the but the PRM's have a better sense of space that you can pick out details much more easy especially with the new stock cable they provide which was made of "SXC". Fitear has a much wider overexaggerated soundstage which I sometimes prefer, I do prefer the fitear's midrange much more due to it's very lush and slightly dark presentation, but the treble lacks and is not very "reference" so I can't pick out as much details as I can compared to the PRMs.

Actually you can't. Maybe you could ask Musica Acoustics if they're prepared to do a demo tour. The MHd-Q7 is actually sold in Japan only.

Darn it, thanks for the reply I am about the only one interested, I doubt there is anyone else on Australia who will be interested in buying this.

I'm heading back to Oz (Perth) 20th Mar -> 8th Apr. I could mail you if you're interested. Or if you're in Perth, I'm probably going to try to organise a head-fi meet there.

I live in Sydney so sadly I cannot make it to Perth head-fi. That is kind of you for offering but it normally takes around a month for me to get to know a product. I think it is better for me to just save up and buy it, I have never owned anything from them might as well start with this amp. Mean while I have the C5 and the EX1000 to test around. 

Please keep us posted with any good synergy pairing you find with Ortofon, I really liked your RDB+ review with Orotfon.


Best regards.

I could be wrong but AFAIK there are no instructions on opening the amp, & therefore any attempt of self-replacement of the battery is unauthorized & unwarrantable if something goes wrong. I can check with the maker if you like.

Sure, I'd appreciate that very much!

Right now I've been in search for an amp to pair with my AK100...

In the pic on the 1st page I saw something like two AA size batteries. Maybe that's somebody's mod.
