Looking for a portable amp for both IEM/Headphones

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I feel like there is a better amp than my Leckerton UHA-6SMKII and curious about keep upgrading.

My source is iPod -> CLAS -dB currently for portable use( both IEM/ headphones)

Requirements: Battery life at least 14+ hrs, no channel imbalance for IEM when listening at a low vol level, and portable. Price is not an issue

Any comments would help:)

Apex Glacier :)

Portaphile is also a good amp but very short battery life

ALO RX MK3 B has good battery but not good for portable use

Did you mean that ALO RX MK3 is not so portable? I thought that people saying it does not matches IEM quite well. I'll Look on Apex glacier first then.

Thanks :)

You might want to check the new Pico Power out.  It is likely shipping to pre-order participants this week - there should be impressions shortly.  It has a switchable gain, so it should work well with iems as well as pretty much any full size headphone.

Interesting. I'll look for that one as well :)

Mk3 is a perfect physical fit  with your setup - it's quite powerful though, and is sometimes too much for sensitive IEMs. You may also want to consider the warm tube-y goodness of the Continental.

Hi Xing

I have these two amps alo Rx 3 B and RSA Intruder 

 

for using both iem and headphone :

 

i prefer my Intruder 

because : almost no hissing for sensitive iem like fit ear MH 335 DW and um miracle 

                 Very neutral and natural sounding portable amp 

                 Very good bass impact 

 

for headphone :

 

Alo Rx 3 b and intruder has their own sound character 

intruder is more natural and flat 

alo Rx 3 b has coloration , this for some music genre is very good 

 

this is IMO

 Hi Rudi, thanks for your comment. Have you ever experienced channel imbalance using Intruder with IEMs? I couldn't get a comfortable listening level with SR-71B before it gets to loud.

I have no problem with Chanel imbalance with intruder .

 

The  SQ from intruder is different from RS 71 B, I have already upgraded my RS 71 B

to the newest version , that I can drive better cans with higher impendance. .

Ray has upgrade the gain from 11 to 21 like the gain from intruder 

rs 71 b is brighter than intruder .

 

intuder is more refinement from RS 71 A  Witt excellent bass impact
