I know, just read your post on the X5 thread about how you missed it and hoping to push you to hit the buy button. biggrin.gif

Just some good fun is all. wink.gif

Could be...   There are times when I want to listen to Solid State and then there are times I want to listen to tubes...

 

I plan on using the HA-1 in the preamp mode to drive my custom Woo Tube Amp...   when I'm in the tube mood...    :-)

No worries I knew you were joking, doing things exciting with the HA-1? I was thinking of using my apple devices and see what else I can do with those. I guess it also forces you to get better cans.

I wouldn't say it forces you to get better cans. I would say the HA-1 shows you everything your cans are capable of. I'm actually listening to my old AKG-K550's right now and every detail is filling out as best as these cans can show. Best I've heard them. They sound the same as always, just better, so when you use higher end headphones they really pull ahead and widen the gap because they are allowed to with the HA-1 more than any amp I've heard yet.

But yeah, after a while you might get the itch to see how deep the HA-1 rabbit hole is. I'm deep enough, for now, with the XC. smily_headphones1.gif

Oppo Headphone Amplifier HA-1: Up Close

Real HD Audio - Mark Waldrep - 5/20

 

A initial writeup before his performance appraisal.   Personally its looking like a lot of reviewers really like the silver model.

Here, in Europe, we are waiting.........

Looks like all the silver ones went to reviewers before the general public. Too bad I'm impatient because it looks gorgeous! Might have to get another one. biggrin.gif

^ ^

I registered my interest on the silver model and might order direct from Oppo Digital instead of waiting for my local distributor to bring it in.

Yeah, if I get one, it'll definitely be the silver. Beautiful.

edit: and i'll wait til audio advisor or some other distributor has it. oppo's charging $55 to ship...would be much cheaper with some other distributors.
