Bada is goood (no I'm not spamming you)
(This is a first post, sorry for any transgressions.)
I was one of the lucky 6 who have so far bought one of the Bada amps Ufokillerz has brought to the New World. Ufokillerz did a fantastic job of packaging and shipping - prompt (he had the unit out the next day) AND professional (I've never seen a packaging job like this - I don't even ship Christmas gifts to my relatives with so much care). Shipping to Canada wasn't a problem (it did cost a bit more), but I had the amp in under 5 days.
I bought a mini to RCA connector from Ufokillerz as well (very well built with gold plated Neutrix connectors).
I'm new to the headphone thing, have never used amps before and have only got an old set of HD 320's, so judge my comments accordingly. I initially chose the HD320's because I couldn't get a decent bass sound out my portable CD player and they had more 'oomph' than the other models in my $ range at the time. But with this amp, the headphones are totally different [it's like someone "pulled the wool blanket off of them ..." (no, really; this isn't an exaggeration).] The sound is way more balanced and the mid-range and upper frequencies are much more present. Vocals and horn sounds are so realistic I almost feel like I'm in a recording studio.
The amp gives off a lot of heat and I wouldn't suggest you cram it into a confined enclosure but the unit is so gorgeous looking you wouldn't want to hide it. Brushed aluminum panels with a scintered finish - tres high-end chic. And the ultra-blue LED is neat too.
The only complaint I have, is that the Bada has made me a headphone addict and I am now looking at a new set of headphones. CD-3000 or HD650??? This dilemna (and how to pay for it all) is the (new) question of the day.
Cheers and happy listening,
