Mien should be here on Friday, the P1 is already waiting...

 

The synergy between the HP-P1 and the HP-PV ought to be paramount for Fostex. I would appreciate to posted impressions.

Not me, that is against portable ethos.

To me v1 is more transportable than portable. Also 1/4 jack are more durable and having two 1/8 is pointless.

it is a lot less messy to have 1/8<-1/4 than other way around.

I'll be joining the bandwagon... can't wait.

I'd have preferred a 1/4" socket as well... I won't use is on the go but intend to take it with me on trips to drive bigger headphones. Especially looking forward to my soon-to-arrive T90: it might pair quite well with a hybrid amp that has a bit of a darker sound signature. And the T90 has a 1/4" connector...

Its here :-)

 

Sitting between its brothers HP-P1 and A4.

 

Very short first impression with the TH600 and the DT1350 suggests that the V1 lets the bass run a bit more free than the P1 and makes the subbass more present. Again I realized just how good the P1 is... Nice combination for the holidays.

Its a nice detail that the V1 has line-in both on the front panel and on the back.

Subscribed and glad to see the HP-V1 stacks nicely with the original Solo DAC.

Looking forward to more reviews.

Got mine in, too. Pretty impressive. Fostex even took the time to make sure the volume pot knob doesn't scratch the case.

3 days a go the first time I have heard Fostex HP V 1 tube hybrid amp

Source : AK 240
Amp : Fostex HP V1 tube hybrid amp
Headphone : LCD XC

Sound quality compare to my ALO Continental V2
High : Fostex HP V1 more crisp and detail with more volume
Mid : is more sweet and intimate than my ALO continental 2
Bass : ALO has better bass impact
Separation : Fostex HP V1 has better music separation
Soundstage : Fostex HP V1 has wider soundstage
IMO

I just dusted off my T5p and I really like what I hear: while the treble is still not as refined as with the T1 (which overall I found not too impressive paired with the V1), the bass is more present than I remembered for the T5p, it feels spacious with good separation and nicely rendered voices. Looks like an interesting portable setup...

DAC used was a Meier Audio Daccord.

How do we buy these?
post #86 of 119

Amazon has some for sale.  I was looking at picking one up, but not sure I want to pull the trigger yet.

Hi guys! I'm really looking forwards for this. Waiting for a review with balance armatures IEM and low impedance headphones.

If we were to buy them from Amazon and most if not all of them are shipping from Japan, will we be taxed when it arrives US?

And anyone compared this to the Cotinental V3?

I was really tempted to pick one up at the show especially when they had specials (5x going for Y42,000+ each) and I had just dropped off my TUR-06 for repair. Unfortunately it didn't have enough grunt to drive my Alpha Dogs (but naturally drove the MH335DW easily). It wasn't microphonic as far as I can tell and that's extremely welcoming for a portable tube amp.
Sorry Anak, but what case it what with the ZX1?
