Apologise if this had been asked before, am a newbie here.


well going back and forth between the V1, and the C v3, the V1 is warmer more tube sounding? more thump, the V3 also has some good thump to it, but is a little more on the brighter side/airier, a bigger soundstage, with more detail, both are very very awesome though, I use the ZOv1 to add some thickness to the C v3 in my portable rig, and may I just say WOW! to that litle power house, I swear by that ZOv1 for any bass heads out there!!!!!


I wanted to get the PortaTube to do a side by side by side, it's a little on the priceier side, but I got a pretty good deal on the V1, and V3, the PortaTube is supposed to trump both these 2 by a margin or two? I'd love to hear that, and sell of the 2nd, and 3rd place tube amps? lol, yea right, like that would happen,


will be getting the V1 into a portable rig soon though!? lol,


right now I am using an iPod Classic 7th gen as a source>HP-P1>the V1, C V3>ASG-2s,

Hi Guys,


Looking to spend abit more money on my ears and keep coming round to the V1. Can anyone explain to me what the benefits of stacking it with my HP-P1 will be? I


My Current rig is iPod (either 64gb Touch or 160gb Classic), HP-P1 and SE846's with the warm nozzle or Bose noise cancelling things.

I have been trying to determine exactly how the Furutech ADL iD-30PA works between the HP-P1 and iDevice. I find the iDevice at sometimes has a depleted battery while connected to the HP-P1.


The provided Fostex cable permits power sharing and charging via an USB port. Woohoo!


I cannot use the iD-30PA cable to charge the iDevice via an USB port. Could be a problem at sometime.


It seems Furutech have prevented power transfer via the iD-30PA to maintain a better audio quality.


I don't think this situation has been discussed anywhere before ...or has it? :blink:
