Within 2013 the headphone lovers community will see the Bakoon HPA 21 , a dedicated headphone amp from Bakoon
There are a few threads on headfi already about the 11 , a 15 watt speaker amp with a very good headphone out using resistors to allow headphone use .
6 moons have 2 reviews lauding the headamp ability as best ever and extremely good .
An interview with head designer of Bakoon reveals exactly why the current drive is so very suited to headphones specially.
He stated that making a dedicated headphone amp he could improve on the sq for headphone out of the 11
He goes into good detail why his satri is so special for headphones
So folks, hold onto your wallets, there is something special coming for solid staters.
I certainly don't want to jinx it but am pretty sure the solid state high end is about to be redefined .
My unit is reserved , there will also be a new dac .
Rudi, I dont know if the amps you refer to are dedicated hpa's , I only saw a rendering of proposed HPA 21 which is different in form factor from the amp 11 and the usual bakoon look
I am very excited . You will probably see this info as soon as 6 moons audio reviews moves from coming soon to preview or review .
Enjoy the music.
