What was your first Amp? - Page 2

post #16 of 108
I built myself a Cmoy derivative on a Hansen board. I gave it to my oldest son, who gave it to my youngest son. It is probably now on his floor somewhere under a pile of who-knows-what.

My current amp (HA-1) is my first.

JMT PIMETA - priced very reasonably

A genuine revelation! Made me want to listen to everything all over again. It's still in regular use and remains one of the most satisfying audio purchases in years.

Xin supermini v6 (?). I'm indifferent towards it, since I never really used it w/ a portable phone.

May 2003...

I bought the HD580 and soon after a Creek OBH-11 to accompany it. Then I found Head-Fi and it's been downhill (uphill?) ever since...

Gilmore Lite. It was a great choice.

My first amp was a self-built standard cmoy with the cheapest opamp I could find. The total cost were around 20-30 Euros. How did it sound? Let's just say that I moved on to a better amp rather quicky.

My first (and hopefully my last) headphone amp is a Gilmore Lite. I got the pre-release price on the new version: $250.

It's the best headphone amp ever. If it's not, I don't want to hear about it!

I built a CMOY less than a year ago...then a MINT, then a PPA and then a PIMETA.

I still listen to all but the CMOY that I built...it was sold on eBay.

Edit: My only regret is that I'm not independently wealthy.

Headroom Little...my wife bought it for me to surprise me for my birthday, but I'd already purchased an X-Cans V2 / X-10D / X-PSU. I ended up returning the Little, as I couldn't justify have two headphone amps at that point. I did spend about a week listening to it, and it was a very nice amp for the money IMHO.

JMT built CHA-47 used with some SR-60's and a D-25S. I am still using this as my main amp and source, but have just ordered a Gilmore Lite and a NAD 542 to go along with my Alessandro MS-2's

Same here. Other amps get a lot more time now, but this elegant amp has a sound I still like...

My first amp of * any * kind was a nice, 76 pounds light, McIntosh MC 275 (75W) tube amp. NOT the $4k 'Commemorative Edition'; the original MC 275... bought it in 1970 for around 4 bills. Still works. Still sounds great. Probably outlast me!

headroom little in 1994. Headroom had an 8 week backorder at the time.

My first amp was the XP-7 with Power Supply and AD797 opamps

I have no regrets at all!
