If there is a amp heaven I am sure it will be very close to what you have with you. Thanks for the shot, wangus is even larger than I thought.

Thank you

As you guys are knowledgeable about Japanese headphone amplifiers, have any of you heard of Bispa? - http://bispa.co.jp/t:hpa

 

They make 3 variations of this - 

 

 

- which sells for 29,800 YEN or around $300. 

 

I can only discern from the website link that it runs on 4 AAA batteries and uses quality components made by Bispa.

 

Anybody heard this amp or read any reviews?

 

Cheers,

Andy.

Hi Gavin, how is the sound of mass-kobo as compared with Wagnus?   I looking for the best amp to pair with AK120.   Appreciate your comments.

Guys, due to MOT status, I can't.

 

I would say they are both fabulous TOTL amps with differing character and naturenormal_smile%20.gif

Thanks Gavin. Just ordered Mass Kobo 385. Now the wait. Will probably check out Wagnus when I am in Japan end of the month. Cheers.

I now have about 6 friends who has acquired the Mass-Kobo and all of them thoroughly enjoy this amp very much, most are using the AK120 as source.

Is there anyway to buy this if you live in the us, or is that impossible? Currently I am considering amps like the 627x and lisa l3 to pair with a soon to be had hm901 and this amp looks very interesting.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "way too mellow"? Are you saying that the 627 is perhaps too laid back and not exciting enough?

627x best pairing:

  • er4s
  • ex-1000
  • ES10

Neutral pairing:

  • CK100pro
  • F111

Poor pairing

  • Cardas Model 1

 

Hope that helps what I mean. In general 627x is best paired with analytical gears.

I think i read somewhere that Average_Joe also gave 10/10 pairing with AKG K3003.

With 627x once you find that magical pairing and spend a weekend away from head-fi and actually with music you will not have the urge for the next upgrade. 627x will pair with sibilant or border line sibilant, I hope one day I could try k3003 in a long duration now that I have the 627x, I did not know average_joe gave it such marking I value his words alot, thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Average joe also mentions that the 627 pairs exceptionally well with the nt6 pro ciems (which is the very iem I plan to get) So I guess 627x will probably pair well with nt6pro because a_joe describes it as having enhanced highs and crazy details etc
