How important the battery for your audio gear ? Discussion and impression thread

Hi Head Fi er friends

I would like to share my personal experience , how important the battery fir your audio gear

I have tried many battery brands and the result are different from each other .

It is very important if you try with the same audio rigs set up , please try to change for example your amp battery .
And you hear with the same song and at the same volume level .

Below is my personal experience :

It is very interesting to try many alkaline battery brands for your amps .
Please try with your set up , than you can hear the sq different very noticeable

For my 3 japans amps Wagnus Epsilon S , Ko Jo KM 01 and Mass Ko Bo 385

Nr 1 : Duracell alkaline AA and AAA battery are the best SQ
High : very detail , clean , clear , very good clarity
Mid. : clear and clean and sweet sounding mid , you can hear how the singer
Sing and took a breath
Bass : very clean , detail , very good impact and bass body
Separation : the best separation so far compare to other battery
Soundstage : are wide and toll and very good depth

Overall : the most balance sound , has very good impact , clarity and sweet mid

Minus : the most expensive in Indonesia about 50 cent US Dolar per piece

Nr 2 : Sanyo and Panasonic alkaline AA and AAA battery are second best

Overall : warm sounding sound , slightly less clarity

Plus : very cheap cost about 30 Cent US Dolar per piece

Nr 3 : Energizer and local brand ABC alkaline

Overall : to much high , very high clarity , sound a bit thin for some music

This is my IMO

Nice.

 

Currently I am trying out the following 2:

Eneloop XX 950mAh 1.2v

Powerex Imedion 950mAh 1.2v

 

I have yet to try the powerex so I have got no idea how the SQ is going to change.

 

 

Batteries to avoid:

 

 

Phillips Zinc Carbon R03 1.5v green package.

 

I bought these to test the amp but they were underpowered from the beginning. The LED shows red and I got severe imbalance unless I pump up the volume.

Hi tm.chen
I have tried Eneloop white colour only for my Stax Srm 002 2 month ago , SQ is the best with my Stax amp Srm 002.
I haven't try them to my japan amps yet
The Eneloop black colour should have higher ampere compare to the white ones .

I don't understand. Why you severe imbalance ?

Hi Rudi,

 

The phillips batteries just doesnt seem to power the MK385 well. At minimal volume, the sound would be stronger on one side.

Since I got the eneloop and the imedions, I have not gone back to try them.
