Ra is fuuuuuuuucing awesome 😱,upgradtitis is nil😎.
post #107 of 304

Yeah, amp wise I feel no need to upgrade. I might get a stronger amp if I get something really hard to drive or something but for now the RA is my desktop amp. I run either the iPod Class, Macbook, SMSL M2 or Geek Out V2 with line out to RA everyday. Am just on my second battery. 

 

Btw, this is using a dollar store battery. I JUST finished my first battery. I am pretty sure run time will be even better once I find some decent rechargeable batteries!

 

@nmatheis  any suggestions where I can get some? NONE of my local stores carry rechargeable 9V batteries :(

@RedJohn456: I'm using an old-skool Duracell. I usually buy Amazon brand rechargeables these days. They've got the same specs as Eneloop but are cheaper.

Having gone through three batteries already, you should publish at least a quick review of the RA @golov17!

I'm not an expert in writing review, the only exception: VE Zen, I could not restrain myself, lol 😉

You don't need to be an expert @golov17. Just express your honest view of the RA - what you love about it and what you think could be improved. Help get the word out.

Got the RA and I'm really liking it so far. Has it's little quirks like the volume nob slides all the way to the case which then scratches when you turn it (though I have already fixed it by shoving some paper inside the nob). But overall it's a very good clean sounding amp. Maybe a little warmer than neutral. It's really clean, black background makes for some really nice pairing with BA drivers.

I've noticed that the RA specs are "TI TLE2426, BUF634, JRC 4556AD" though both the OPA on my amp are the JRC 4556AD (can't read the tiny one).

Am I able to get the runabout? The price on aliexpress is 169; I heard that the MSRP is 99.
