You are welcone Moe

Please Dont buy Wagnus Epsilon S MAX , it is more expensive about 500 USD , but The SQ is not as Good like mine
Wagnus Epsilon S With RED Knob, The S MAX With BLUE Knob .

Minus :
Dont have big Power to drive hard to drive headphone , if like Fostex TH 900 or LCD XC
Are excellent SQ pair with Wagnus Epsilon S

Q 4 @rudi0504: Was the Wagnus Epsilon S MAX brand new when you tried though? I understand you tried it at an event or Jaben store? Was it run or burnt in?

HI Sean

I tried from Sid , he Bought from Mook Show In Singapore

We heard The MAX Wagnus has different sound signature and less detail and clarity
The soundstage is not as Wide like Stock Wagnus Epsilon S

Hi Rudi0504, please share your thoughts on Kojo KM01 vs. Duet for IEM and portable headphone. I know you rank Kojo as your #2 next to Wagnus for sound quality, and you rank Wagnus as about 20% superior to Duet, but you have not compared the two (Kojo and Duet) directly. I am looking for an amp to upgrade my current system - ipod classic > Clas DB > iqube > SE846.

 

I prefer an amp that will give best sonics without or minimal hiss on 846, and also be good enough to use for a portable headphone like an Audeze XC.

Tonite I heard the comparison between Ko Jo KM 01 vs Cypher Labs. duet

Source : IPhone 5 s
Dac : Cypher Labs Class -DB 2,00 VRms version
Amp : Cypher Labs Duet
Ko Jo KM 01
Iem : Earsonic SM 64 v 2
Headphone : LCD XC

My impression :

Ko Jo KM 01 :
High :
Slightly more extended than Duet , better clarity

Mid :
Is slighly sweeter and clearer and cleaner than Duet , more intimate too, this is the strong point from Ko Jo KM 01

Bass :
Less Bass impact , very Good bass detail and very clean bass , less bass body

Separation :
Very Good separation , it is about on par With Duet

Soundstage :
Ko Jo soundstage is less Wide and Depth than Duet , it is more like small live jazz hall

Power :
has not enought Power to drive My LCD XC

Hiss :
No hiss

Background :
black background


Cypher. Labs Duet :
High :
Slightly less extended and less clarity than Ko Jo KM 01 , but more pronounce in the treble

Mid :
Is sweet but less intimate than Ko Jo KM 01

Bass :
Has better bass impact and faster bass Speed , bass clarity is on par With Ko Jo KM 01

Separation :
Very Good music separation , This Two Amps has about The same music separation

Soundstage :
Wider and deeper than Ko. Jo KM 01 , more like big concert hall

Power :
Has plenty Power compare To Ko Jo KM 01
Is use Only Low Gain

Hiss :
No Hiss

Background :
Black background

Overall :

These Two amp has almost The same sound character ,
Ko JO has Theorem strong Point In term OF. Clarity and very sweet and intimate midrange , but less bass impact
It is very Good For iem , but not so Good , because lack Of Power , not The sound quality

Duet has their strong Point In bass impact and Speed , better soundstage , but overall slighly less clarity than Ko Jo KM 01
Duet has more Power , i use Only Low Gain , can drive LCD XC In very Good SQ .
You can use For driving iems to headphone

IMO

Have you listened to the Vorzamp Pure II amp, this seems to be up there with the Kojo and Duet. Would be good to hear your take.

True! The pure ii is an incredible portable amp, just the right size for a dx90 too :D
