Anybody ever use their Headstage Arrow as a desktop amp?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys I'd like a desktop amp that sounds like the Headstage Arrow.  This will be for my T20RP and occasionally my JH16 for my computer setup.  I got a Schiit Magni and it failed on me the first day I received it, so I sent it back.  While it was a very transparent amp, I would have liked a bit more low end.  I know the Arrow has a 12db boost on Bass II, which I like especially with the JH16s.  I have been looking into the O2 but I've read it's very similar to the Magni.  I'm also currently looking at Fiio E12, but need some advice, I love the Arrow sound, and am thinking about picking one up just for desktop duty.  The other one is stuck to my iphone...

Hi KimChee

I have 2 arrow one is 3 G and one is 4 G

If you use mostly for Jh 16 pro , I think the Arrow 4 G is one of the best amp in this price $ 299 US

arrow 4 G has bass and treble and cross feed and gain setting , that you already love the bass setting for your Jh 16.

another amp that sound so neutral and natural , I will recommend you Tralucent T1 , but T1 don't 

has any setting , it's like pico slim has only on / off and volume controll.

 

i possible you can compare between these 2 amps 

Maybe you want try different than arrow 4 G but sound quality still very good to your Jh 16 pro 

if you like the sound quality from pico slim , you will like Tralucent T1 

for long listening is non fatigue 

 

these two amps have plus / minus similar sound zig 

High : very detail 

mid : very sweet and clear 

Bass : very good bass detail and impact 

separation : very good separation 

soundstage : almost same wide 

hiss : these two amps have almost no hiss , very good black background.
