Thank you Gavin
I am waiting for Joseph TU 05 , I hope in the next 2 weeks should be arrive .

What kind of tube do you use for detail like your 1+2?
post #138 of 547

I bought the TU-05 with the upgraded tubes offered by Shikada-san.... And it sounds great with IEMs so I have not gone tube rolling yet. In actual fact, I am waiting for my friend to receive his TU-05, and then go shopping together. There are a few shops very decent tube shops in Hong Kong. :normal_smile :

After long time listening Mass Ko Bo 385 and because of the hiss , I just decided Today follow you to buy one

Mass Ko Bo 385 amp .

As I told you before , I like the SQ from Ko Bo 385 , i hate :Donly the hiss biggrin.gif

My ranking from these 3 japan high end Amps as follow :

1 . Wagnus Epsilon S
2 . Ko Jo KM - 01
3 . Mass Ko Bo 385

Wagnus Epsilon S is combination the clarity from Mass Ko Bo 385 and very sweet mid from Ko Jo KM - 01
It is excellent for all rounder music from jazz to classic

Ko Jo is very sweet and intimate SQ like tube
It is very good for jazz vocal , country music

Mass Ko Bo very good in detail and clarity
It is very good for instrumental music with percussion , classical music

Minus from Mass Ko Bo is : HISS
The rest you will love Mass Ko Bo 385

Note : these 3 amps are not so good for high impedance headphone like HD 800
And Ortho like LCD 3
These 3 Amps are very good to excellent SQ to all iems and low impedance headphone
Except Ko Bo 385 because of the HISS

out the box my new Mass Ko Bo 385











Source : AK 120
Amp : Mass Ko Bo 385
Iem : Tralucent Audio 1+2 with UBER cable balance RSA
Cable : Tralucent UBER mini to mini
Norse Audio Adapter RSA female to mini
SQ is very good , if no HISS IS EXCELLENT



My IMO

 

Hey Rudi, Congrats on your new addition.

 

Have you tried using other AAA batteries? The 2 sets that Masuda san brought to Singapore had different batteries and there was a slight difference.

1 was using Sanyo eneloop and the other was Panasonic akaline.

The best for impact and speed and clarity is Duracell

Warm sounding and natural sound is Sanyo

I concur ....

 

Duracell all the way for me. I love the fact you can just change out batteries but it is not very ecological. BUT love the attack and slam from Duracells...........

Our taste is almost the same biggrin.gif

Sanyo is less clarity

Energiser is more to brighter sound but less impact abs mid a bit thin .

Batteries can effect to the SQ is unbelievable

Note : the battery brand for example Duracell is good for Ko Bo , but for another
Audio gear is not so good.
You must try it , which brand has the best synergy for your audio gear

Please try it , because hearing is believing biggrin.gif

Mid : very sweet and clear mid
Bass : the best bass impact I heard from portable amp
Soundstage : wide and toll soundstage , like you hear in big concert hall
Separation : very good , that you can hear the individual instrument very clear.
