Hi Amber

I have tried Wagnus With My JH 16 pro FP , i heard Only very minimal hiss on My Jh 16 pro FP .
Thats Mean NT 6 from Zach is more sensitif than mu jh 16 pro FP .
Like pair With AK 120 Titan M i turn THE volume from My Titan at 55 - 65 Max , to reduce The hiss on My jh 16 pro FP
Now i have not received My jh Roxanne .
So Far With My Earsonic SM 64 v1. 112 Ohm and v2 90 Ohm is No problem With hiss.

Sofar Wagnus is still My best SE amp from My collection
Because of The big Size , i use Only at home or mini meet

For daily use ,
i use Mass Ko Bo 395 as SE and Ko Jo KM 01 amp pair With all My iems and Custom iems .
At Low volume i heard slighly hiss from Mass Ko Bo 395 , it does not disturb My mouse listening .
With Ko Jo kM 01 has better and Dead silent background noise .

For Balance i like to use My Duet , Duet is very Good pair With iems and Custom iems , specialky In balance mode

What is Your music genre ?

Thanks for the very nice explanation Rudi. After read all those, I think I am leaning towards to Duet. Seems like a killer deal. Alo RX MK3 B+ seems nice too with bass boost option (it might come handy to me) but I read it has hiss with sensitive ciems too.

 

I listen to variety of genres, from rap to metal, rock to classical music. Generally I like my sound signature slightly warm and lush. Good quality and quantity bass, organic rich full warm mids and smooth airy relaxed but extended and detailed treble. I cant stand to hot treble. I don't like bright iems for example.

Yeah, the Wagnus probably wouldn't suite your tastes.

627x seems like a good one, it is quite big though but.

 

PortaTube+? I don't know about that one, I should check it out.

 

Thank you for the responses guys.

I don't hear any hiss when using Wagnus S with my phones, 8A, N6 & VE6X2. Like Rudi mentioned and to my ears, best SE amp if SQ is what you are after.
I find slight hissing when demoed my phones with ALO MK3, but prefers its little brother, the International.
DAP using is DX90. Was DX50 previously. Cables and interconnect are all DIYed.


Cheers.

Looking forward for tomorrow night. I need to find best source for wagnus. My options are as follow:

 

  1. HUGO rca to wagnus, issue is that I need the AK120 C4 as a source and it is an odd looking stack
  2. Colorfly C4: Using 6.3 mm out, issue is that it has poor UI and sound is not as detailed as HUGO
  3. AK120: It might not be as loud as other output
  4. DD socket 1: Does not support high rez files
post #330 of 698
Audionewbi, who cares how odd looking the stack may be as long as those gears deliver the sound we want.
Hugo is awesome and that RCA or 3.5M interconnect is crucial piece of link to carry all the details to the Wagnus.
