    Rogue Audio RH-5 Impression Thread

    Thank you for sharing the pics. @LifeOnMercury, @huangwan Thanks for the info. Those Abyss 1266's are rated at only 47 ohms. Their sensitivity of only 88dB must be the reason they are known to be hard to drive. It just seems like for a headphone amp to be capable of driving the most...

    Rogue Audio RH-5 Impression Thread

    As far as tube-rolling is concerned... My music presentation tastes tend to lean a bit more to the solid-state than a vacuum tube style. That meant that the Mullards and the GE's I tried were way too warm, mushy, and overly bloomed bass. Conversely, the Telefunken's I tried were too bright...

    Rogue Audio RH-5 Impression Thread

    Before I respond to the tube rolling query I have a question of my own: What gain settings is everyone listening to in both headphone and preamp mode? When using either my Sennheiser/Massdrop HD6XX or in preamp mode I do not get any audible music unless I choose Gain 3. On top of that, I...

    Rogue Audio RH-5 Impression Thread

    I (usually) do not like the sound of the classic tube sound. Having said that, I love the sound from this amp. I have been using a matched pair of Psvane Mk II's as I feel they are the most solid state sounding tube out there. I love the detail retreaval, quickness, and accuracy of this...

    One of the best amps I had the pleasure of listening to. I wish I could get my hands on one, too.

    Questyle CMA600i first impressions thread

    I, too, am interested in this. I need a amp for my HD650's and would not mind replacing my current two channel DAC if I like this one better.

    Silly Yggdrasil question

    Anyway... Will the Yggy output to both the RCA outputs AND the balanced outputs at the same time? It would be nice to hook up both my speaker preamplifier and a balanced headphone amp simultaneously. Thank you.

    Unique Melody Mentor debut in Tokyo e-earphone festival

    Would you mind elaborating exactly why?  I am trying to understand the sound signatures of these high end CIEMs without ever hearing them.  Tough stuff!  The last thing I want is to plop down this amount of money, wait for them to be finished, listen to them and think......meh.

    Unique Melody Mentor debut in Tokyo e-earphone festival

    I would like to know too.  It is between these two CIEMs for me.  I really liked my Westone 4s.  However, they broke and I want something with the same or better clarity, extension, and separation but with more "fun factor."
