Following my impressions about the new Qualia 010:

First: the most important aspect of this can in changing the sound are: headband size (fit), position of the headphones in your head.

Second: burn-in a lot of hours !!!

This is my last experience in a section listening:

I heard the pipe organ in the Mozarth Requiem (Sony Classical- Carlo Maria Giulini) in the trace n°2, I cannot hear the organ with the Omega setup, even knowing now that there is the organ in the recording.

On thusday I'll will receive (hand delivered) the RP010 amp a "custom" amp for the Qualia 010. I'll post some pics too...

Best!

It looks massive, man....those dissipators look like 1/2" thick, I don't know how it will sound, but for sure it should weight a ton....Any specs for now???

Yes,

I think will be very heavy... the pot is on the back, and in the front just the power switch ! Totally dual mono SS.

I'll post soon the official link with the informations about the amp.

Best!

I won't say anything else, even if I found that rather distasteful.

Anyway, is that an ALPS RK27112MC used as volume control ? If you're looking for neutrality and transparency, it's the last thing you want to see on the signal path. Ask at least Rudi to mount you a stepped attenuator if it is used simply to attenuate the signal. That doesn't belong to an high end amp.

I concur wholeheartedly.

My guess is the volume is controlled digitally via a remote control?

Argh! I hate it when headphone jacks are on the back of the amp.

I guess if you are only using it with one headphone and have a long headphone cord it works fine... less clutter on the front for a more refined look?
