Portable Headphone Amplifier "WAGNUS Bialbero Epsilon S" impression and appreciation thread - Page 3

It does have a very utilitarian exterior, more akin to a hobbyist project than a commercial product. Very interested to see what the internal construction is like.

My friend has email Wagnus why the box look like not for so expensive amp .
Wagnus has answered , they prefer to invest in the parts for the Wagnus amp than the Box.
Because they prefer make better SQ than better looking .biggrin.gif

rudi054,

 

A very plausible explanation and one that makes a lot of sense. Would you please ask your friend to contact Wagnus again and request some photo's of the amps internal construction/components.

 

Cheers,

Andy.

I joined you, and my Wagnus Epsilon S arrived this morning. Huge case, but so light in weight.

Been listening on and off all day. Out of the box /bag, was a little surprised by the glare in the trebles and lack of upper bass.......gave the impression of being very artificially detailed....However, the FR has been balancing itself out during the day and now it is sounding rather special! Listening with the AK120 and DSD files, very, very natural sounding and the S is imposing it's characteristics into the sound field.

Will spend more time with it and then compare with the Mass kobo 385 and Triad L3. All three portable / transportable amps have their own particular sonic signature...................it will be very interesting how these 3 compare with the in coming TU-05 and 06 next month.

Congrats Gavin for the third owner Wagnus Epsilon S in Head Fi , so far I know biggrin.gif

Please try use Sanyo Alkaline 1,5 Vollt battery , you will more love the SQ and pair with your UBER mini to mini is excellent .

So far my best transportable SQ

How is the treble on this? As much as I am enjoying the 627x it is way too mellow.

I haven't heard Porta 627x
Wagnus Epsilon S treble is very detail and fast and very clean.
If you like Ortofone MHd Q7 , Wagnus is the high end version with almost no hissing .

post #43 of 244

Any chance of cracking it open and photographing the internal components? It would be great to have a look at the circuit board.  L3000.gif

Please whenever you have time give us a quick impression of how this compares against the MASS Kobo you own. I am still in market for an amp :S
