    Violectric HPA V280 - balanced headphone amp - impressions and discussion thread

        I understand how it works.  If it could be replicated more cost-effectively I believe it would have and that information would be at least semi-widely available.   For me, given the fact that I have multiple systems that I have decent money into it was worth it.   Check out the...

    Violectric HPA V280 - balanced headphone amp - impressions and discussion thread

        Maybe, maybe not.  I honestly don't know enough to say.   I do know that a lot of people with significant investments in an audio system have one and swear by it.  For me it was worth the purchase.

    Violectric HPA V280 - balanced headphone amp - impressions and discussion thread

    First (and very brief) thoughts after 2 days on break-in...   1) Very powerful, drives the LCD-X with authority   2) Music emerges from a black background, zero noise in between passages.   3)Fantastic bottom end, much better than the RWA Audeze amp.   4) A little harder upper midrange...

    Violectric HPA V280 - balanced headphone amp - impressions and discussion thread

    Just unboxed mine so haven't had too long to listen.  The one thing I noticed immediately was the slam and how robust the power supply is.  I actually had to set the preamp to -6db and that's with the LCD-X.  I had a RWA Audeze previously and while that drove the LCD-X OK I had to turn it up...

    Violectric HPA V280 - balanced headphone amp - impressions and discussion thread

    I just bought a V280 yesterday from the very helpful Arthur Power.   I will pair this with my LCD-X and a PS Audio DAC/Transport front end.  Looking forward to receiving it and getting it plugged in for the weekend.

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    Has anyone ever tried the HE-1000 with the RWA Audeze headphone amp?  I sold my LCD-X phones last year and am deciding between getting a new pair of 'phones for that amp or selling the amp altogether.  I had the RWA in a system with PS Audio Transport / PS Audio DSD.  Have recently read a few...

    MrSpeakers Ether Impressions Thread

    http://headfonics.com/2015/06/the-ether-by-mrspeakers/2/   I didn't understand the review at all.  I mean I get it, it's well written and straightforward but it was basically like   Bass, "I simply do not consider the Ether a musical headphone"   Midrange: "it isn’t quite on par with the...

    How Many Times Have Your LCD3 Headphones Been Returned to Audeze for Servicing (RMA)?

    Someone I trust has told me Audeze is aware of this thread and it is unlikely they will comment.  I have seen them comment in a similar Reddit thread but that was a few months back.  The comment was a generic 'if you have a problem we will fix it.'    ...

    How Many Times Have Your LCD3 Headphones Been Returned to Audeze for Servicing (RMA)?

    It's not just the cost to repair them.  It's the PITA aspect, the "I don't have the product to use aspect."   I once owned a BMW 540.  Purchased new.  Nice car.  Fassssssst.  Built like crap, at least the one I had.  Back at the dealer for repairs (under warranty) numerous time.  Ended up...

    How Many Times Have Your LCD3 Headphones Been Returned to Audeze for Servicing (RMA)?

    LCD-3 Quality control issues definitely having an effect on the resale market.  I can see it and a used high-end dealer friend of mine confirmed it.  You can pick up a pair w/Fazor for close to $1300 if you shop around.  Previously you'd pay 20% off retail (net about $1500).   Don't get me...
