    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    Congrats on your Stratus! Wishing you many hours of enjoyable listening. An aside re tubes - I'm gonna try the JJ2A3-40s. I had a pair in my Bottlehead 2A3 several yrs ago and really enjoyed them.

    Those tubes look a lot like medication bottles - we may start an Audio epidemic:)

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    A couple of posts in this thread from 2013 mention favorable impressions of the Sennheiser HD580 w/ the Stratus. I second those comments. Out the Blue (pun intended:)) I plugged my HD580s in and was pleasantly surprised. Crazy good for a low to mid priced HP (mine were $100 used). What a...

    Did you receive your Verite yet? I agree it should be an excellent match for the Stratus.

    DC Area Head-Fi Meet Planning (ongoing)

    Checking in. Is there an upcoming local meet in the works? I notice HeadphoneGuru is on the home page for Capital Audiofest Nov 1-3 2019. I also see Headamp on the vendor list. So maybe there will be a headphone event this year??

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    Here is my Stratus with Utopias, M scaler and Qutest. It's been a journey over the last several years with all sorts of amps, DACS and HPs. I was an original Stratus owner years ago and sold it only to come full circle with this most recent version. In a word I'd say it's "captivating" which...

    Thanks for the interesting comments. I would like to think that Pierre's Viva comparison demonstrates that the only difference is power output yet that may be an over simplification. Though I do wonder if, all things being equal, it is that simple - inefficient HPs like inefficient speakers...

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    My Stratus will be well used. I have EML 2A3s from another amp. I'll spend time w/ the stock tubes as you say to get a clear idea of that sound first. With other amps I too have noticed the driver tube makes a big difference. I'll look through the thread to see what people are doing in that...

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    No not at all. I am inquiring whether folks have heard a positive improvement by upgrading the rectifier. It seems they have. My Stratus will arrive next week and I'm considering other rectifiers. the WE422A is out of my price range for now so I may consider the EML.

    I did not think the rectifier would make a difference however It seems that overall people are happy w/ the EML 5U4G.

    I listened to the WA22 at a local meet and felt it was underpowered for the Susvara. If you can find a local meet it's a great way to try different amps
