    Questions on OTL amp repair/tube safety

    I recently took ownership of a La Figaro 332C amp with the understanding it has a problem involving the headphone jack. It's unknown exactly what the fault is but it is effected by wiggling the headphone cable in the socket. It's a known issue that the jack on these may need to be resoldered...

    SOLD: SMSL M300 MKii

    This bright red DAC was ordered on March 3rd from Hi-Fi Express and has been in active use since. Reason for sale is that I'd like to move onto something Sabre, or otherwise with a faster sound. The SMSL is too full/smooth sounding for the tastes of this Ultrasone/Beyer treblehead. :p Package...

    FS Schiit Ragnarok

    I sold my speakers a couple months ago and its time for me to move to a more headphone exclusive system. For sale is my Schiit Ragnarok. The sound matches the original reviews as a bold mid-forward and solid sounding amp. I'm not hearing any relation to tube sound as I've seen in some more...

    (Sale/Trade) Apex Sangaku NuTube Hybrid Amplifier

    I'm disappointed to see that this amplifier has been discontinued, haven't owned it a full year yet. Far as tube amps go this has been the most convincing to my ears, because its a hybrid it gives up less of the transient than an all tube powerhouse. I'm selling because I'm uncompromising on the...

    Missing in Action: Low Powered Amps

    As I am writing this post, the Bakoon HPA-01 I recently acquired is sitting on such a low volume that I'm hearing some channel imbalance yet still too loud, and I am left wondering what is left for us high-end dynamic headphone owners. More specifically those of us with low ohm/high efficiency...

    Ultra-Fi DAC41 NOS *SOLD*

    The Ultra-FI DAC41 is a more recent & up to date version of the famed dbaudiolabs Tranquility SE DAC. This DAC follows the philosophy of minimalism as it does only one thing and it does it well. That would be playing 44.1/16 audio using a USB connection. It even goes without the power LED...

    SS Amp under $350

    Looking for an amp for my Ulrasone PRO 2900s, needs to work good with 40ohm headphones. I've been looking at the Mstage, Little Dot MK V, and Purity Aduio KICAS, but I'm open to other amps. Bright amps need not apply, I don't think I can handle any more. .  My budget is not flexible(but...

    Looking for a darkish amp for Ultrasone PRO 2900, >$350

    I've always been a little intimidated of the amp section here, there are so many amps out there, and there is always going to be that feeling that there may have been something better once you get one, so I'm just going to trust headfi, and hope for the best.   I don't know anything about amps...
