    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    Is the SA-1 in high or low gain - also why have you got the High-Z output mode on when the HE6SE is low impedance?

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    This turned up from eBay (£11.19 in an auction) - I don't have readings but I reflowed solder to the pins as the black base is quite loose (seems it's not solder that's the issue, and actually epoxy, oh well) and cleaned up the pins (after I took these photos - pins showing flux residue and...

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    Just won this for cheap, wonder if it's any good. No actual test readings sadly, but worth a punt for the price.

    Xduoo Amplifiers

    I've been spending some time with the TA-26 and really like it - https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/xduoo-ta-26.25647/reviews#review-27937 I've got some RCA (Hewlett Packard branded) 6AS7G tubes on the way, paired with a Sylvania 6SN7GT (Rogers branded) tube - really easy to tube roll and a...

    Review: German Maestro GMP 400

    Really sorry I missed this reply, take the pads off and there are some screws to undo the driver from the main housing. Super easy to do. I'm still using my pair - just got the xDuoo TA-26 which is a nice little tube amp to use with these.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    I've just got the mX modules for my A6t - that I have been using for a few years now with M15 modules - yes the 6's are just superb and hit that sweet spot of being engaging and enjoyable without sounding too coloured.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Just found a JVC AX-555 locally, not much info on them out there but figured might as well get it and test it with the HE6-SE. Made in Japan in the 80's, should be fairly ok - 90 watts per channel into 8Ω - also only £50 so why not. Hooked it up to my B&W 606's first to give it a bit of a...

    HIFIMAN TWS800

    I know the extra amp section will contribute to the bigger size, I was just noting that they won't fit people with smaller ears that well :)

    Bicycle-Fi!

    I've been out of the mountain bike scene since I was a teen (probably about 8-10 years ago) and back then had a Specialized Hardrock Sport (cheap and cheerful, but I was fearless). Decided now I'm on the road and driving I can get out to places to use one, so I've just ordered a Vitus Nucleus...

    Hifiman DEVA - Official Thread

    Only just taken my Deva out of the box, they arrived just before Christmas. Very impressed so far, LDAC over bluetooth but only spotify premium for casual listening at the moment and they sound incredible for the price. Very well balanced with a realistic tonality and plenty of air, also very...

    Feliks Audio Espressivo / Espressivo MKII OTL Tube Amp Impressions Thread

    I would have recommended the T1 2nd gen if you can get a pair, honestly an amazing pairing with the Espressivo... one of my all time favourite matches between two pieces of gear. Smooth, refined and effortless. Not sure how the clears are going to sound, I personally wouldn't have matched a...

    Brief Impressions: Beyerdynamic T51p, T90, T1 and A20

    The A20 is fine with most high impedance dynamic headphones :) it is a slightly warmer amp.
