New Leckerton UHA760 Coming Soon!! - Page 2

post #16 of 96

Oh boy oh boy!

Hope its amp can one-up the Quickstep!

High expectations! :D

Looks like an early December release date.

Yep December 11th to be precise and a nice pre-order price. I am waiting for the UHA 760 + wink.gif

I'm looking at the specs and don't see anything for high impedance phones like my 600 ohm DT990'S. The UHA-6S.MKII does an OK job of driving it, although I was hoping that with an extra gain position that the app would put out considerably more juice on that top setting. Gonna have to decide if I'm going to sell my current amp to get this one...

The only reason to go for the UHA760 would be for its additional features as there doesn't seem to be any difference in maximum power output between the two. Most likely you can expect the same performance in terms of that. However, high gain on the MKII is +18dB (8x) while it on the UHA760 is +12dB (4x) so if you're needing to dial the volume pot way up to drive your DT990s even in high gain, you would definitely want to have the gain on the UHA760 adjusted.

Pre-order page is up, with an estimated ship date of December 11. Even though the output op-amps aren't socketed, it looks like you're given a choice in which ones you want installed in the unit.

I'd love to get one but really can't justify upgrading from my UHA-6S.MKII. Can't wait to read some reviews though.

+2 I bought the UHA-6s mkii because it was a great value. There is a lot of competition at the UHA760 price.

+3. Definitely keeping UHA760 on my watchlist

As I'm quite happy with the MKII at the moment, I'll also be waiting for impressions. Hopefully someone will be able to compare it to the MKII and tell us if signal upsampling and the improved power supply brings noticeable audible improvement. Also would like to see pics of the PCB :D

All of this. Love my MK II, but I never use anything except the USB input so the 760 is appealing. Wait for reviews, but pay a higher price (potentially)? Tough choice...

If it's a $100 upgrade by trading in my uha-6s mkii, i'd do it. I never use the leckerton as a dac, but maybe the dac performance may be improved a little so that it's actually worth using.

 

Edit: for the version with optical and coax inputs, not the standard one.

My Leckerton 760 was mailed yesterday. Hoping to get it by this Saturday :). Will compare it to my T1 once I receive it.

One-up the Quickstep for SQ? We will see about that. Nonetheless the size, features and DAC could make the UHA760 very attractive.
