Thank you seeteeyou for your information

Power and Sq is that the same or better ?

In my opinion , I feel the Wagnus S is obviously better.

I've asked him he did not reply back to me yet. My guess is that it is the same as 385 with the hiss problem solved for IEM.

Wagnus Epsilon S and Mass Ko Bo 385 have excelent SQ pair with Abyss 1266 Planar Headphone

Power wise is enough to drive to my Abyss to normal listening volume

IMO

Any feedback on the new Wagnus amp, Wagnus Epsilon S MAD-BK?

Have anyone listened to it in Tokyo Headphone Festival?

Please visit Fujiavic as sole distributor for Wagnus in japan .

Does anyone know what the difference between the blue knob version and the "red knob" version are? This is the translation (to English) off of http://www.fujiya-avic.jp/products/detail22478.html

Top-level model as "Epsilon S" to components other than the engine adjustment of SPP power has been optimized to match the drive of the op amp.

[Epsilon] is the predecessor of the [Bialbero Epsilon S]. Instead of the an amp with its own discrete circuit, the epsilon uses opamps. Besides that, both uses the same components.

 

That is as far as I get. It is interesting to see how much is the difference in SQ between the 2.

The cables gave my v6 a bit more warmth, the stock cables feel drier

Is the sound manipulated if you use a dac/amp combo in the middle of the source and the wagnus? For instance: would it make sense to use the following:
IPhone 4S (using onkyo hf application) > cck (to get 192/24 out) > USB > sony PHA-2 (dac for DSD AND 24/192) > mini-to-mini > Wagnus Epsilon S?

My question stems from the use of the sony pha-2 in the middle of this. It has an amp itself. So would that even make sense to use in this case?

Agreed with Rudi, as I tested the kobo 385 in Jaben and my personal Wagnus S. IMO

Rudi,

 

Wagnus brought their tube amp prototype to the recent Mook festival. It wasnt complete so they are running it off as epsilon ->quattro 5->iem.

Mids sounds good but my source wasnt good so I cant give more details.

Just something to look forward to.

 

His cables are quite unique too.
