The current version can run on 230V.

1) No. The headphone amp stays on when using the analog outputs, instead of headphones - it can't be turned off without turning off the entire HA-1.

Not surprising since the device is name "Headphone Amplifier - 1"

(don't mind my snarkiness)

There is an option via menu to chose the "mute" function on the remote.  If you set it for it, the MUTE button will mute only the preamp output.

Covering with hands made little difference and I am sure they could make a closed version if they tried.

Haha he holding the HA-1 like it's a football. .
I am VERY surprised Beats & Monster haven't moved into the headphone amp area..
I could see them now making pretty units with lights and dipslays...
And consisting of a hollow unit with one single chip inside lol.

There has been a formal request to have this functionality added to the HA-1 due to customer recommendation, but there has been no guarantee that this functionality will be added to a future firmware release for the HA-1.

Can you also add an aromatherapy feature? And maybe a coffee maker?

Nice one beerchug.gif We could milk this for comedy value from here for a while but I think Aromatherapy and Coffee making options are a great idea, two very important things to me hehe biggrin.gif

If you're going to add tone controls, you may as well add a basic EQ instead.
I don't think it's really necessary, but if Oppo is willing to add it, it would be a nice feature to have.

That's useful, but it doesn't turn off the headphone amp (just to be clear).

Thanks,

Have this in my radar.
Hopefully the local distributor will bring in this amp soon.
Interested to know how they fare when driving the LCD-X and HD800 in balanced mode

HD800 sound great in balanced mode, used Cardas cable by the way

I sincerely hope that Oppo does not add bass and treble controls. I am a potential customer and I do not want to pay for features that I will never use and could potential downgrade the functionality of the unit. I don't want a balance control either. There are plenty of products out thee for people who think they need that kind of band aid.

post #285 of 4749

Well, I assume this would be a firmware addition available only if you are using the DAC portion, so don't see how these bass/treble and balance controls affect things other than possibly increasing sales.
