KOJO KM01-BRASS : With a (32Ω) 20mW +20 mW impression and appreciation thread - Page 10

The wagnus S (Red Knob) is very very good and not cheap But worth for in the SQ and for long term usage and no need to send back for battery change as uses AA battery.

Ya Rudi is very right.

Rgds,

Really love the Japanese amps and their niche sound. So far only a few are privileged to get them. Rudi's the chief!

Every body is chief biggrin.gif

Subjectively, this amp sounds silky smooth and it is the only amp I would use with AK120. I like and appreciate the art of Urushi-e, so I went for the tsugaru version instead. I have mixed feelings with the weight (heavy) though.

Hi Rudi,

What is your impression on the sound difference between the blue and the brass?

Thanks!

Hi
Source : iPhone 5s
Dac : cypher labs class solo original
Amp : Ko Jo Tsuguri edition
Iem : earsonic sm 64 v 1
Headphone : Fostex th 900

High : more extended , more clear and better clarity
Mid : about the same very sweet , but better pronounce and cleaner
Bass: more clean and better detail
Separation : better separation that the placement from the instrument can feel more accurate
Soundstage : slightly wider and better depth

Overall more body compare my Ko Jo brass LE

IMO

Wow. Thank you Rudi.
Very impressive! Better in every way, right out of the box?
These Japanese amps are amazing.

Didn't you say somewhere that you tried to take out the internals from the original brass edition and they sound not as good?

Would you say that the housing (brass) vs the painted one make the difference in sound?

One last thing:
Would you say the Blue Kojo 5%, 10% better?
