Cypherlabs AlgoRhythm Picollo Impressions Thread

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 

Recently David from Cypherlabs shipped me his latest portable amp, the Cypherlabs Algorhythm Picollo (hereafter CLAP). I won't get into the official specs as one can easily pick up the information from here :-

http://www.cypherlabs.com/products/algorhythm-picollo/

 

As I've literally just got it delivered, I've naturally not done any tests to it but instead have taken some unboxing pics. A review of it will come after I've spent some listening time to it.

 

A Theorem 720 put next to it to get an idea of size of the box. This time Cypherlabs has chosen a different packaging from the CLAS & Duet.

 

A portable storage case

 

 

Very simple clean lines and finish

 

 

microUSB charging

 

Base could have been done better but, hey we're here to listen to it right?

 

A comparison with the rest of the Cypherlabs portable family

Any chance of getting some pictures from its internals?

 

Thank you.

No :P!! I just got this and it's a demo unit which I'll pass to @shigzeo after I'm done. I don't think it'll be too respectful to David for opening up and showing the internals to everyone for something given to me/us for a tour.

What an unfortunate acronym.

Finally!! Will be waiting on this to be reviewed! Hope you can try it paired with the dx90 and do a comparison vs dx90+duet.. Looking forward for your feedback Sean!

The carry case looks convenient. IEMs can probably fit in the space next to the amp?

I'll need to burn this thing in a little more. Straight out of the box, he bass is a little loose and the staging is a small. I'd like to put it through a burn in before I comment anything more about it's SQ. But so far using it with the Ditas and comparing it to the HM-901's balanced amp module, the CLAP packs a punch. The HM-901 balanced amp sounds more laid back, and so far the CLAP is more impactful and aggressive - listening to the Star Wars Imperial March.

Any updates on your review? I am eagerly waiting as I am also keen on getting the CLAP lol
