    Matrix M-stage HPA-1

    Mint condition, purchased as demo model from American distributor, only a year old. He hardly used it so I'm guessing it has under 100 hours total on it.    This has LME49710HA on a brown-dog adaptor, which I found to sound the best of everything I tried, including class A biased OPA627. This...

    Comparing DX90 to Fiio X5 mk. 2

    For those of you who've done a direct comparison, which do you prefer and why? I can't make up my mind and I've been searching threads here and all over the internet ... and any others I should consider purely on sound quality up to $500?

    Lake People G103-S

    Original owner, only a couple of months old, PERFECT condition. I have too many headphone amplifiers so hurry before I change my mind. Price is firm. Box, manual, everything included, will ship double boxed (original boxes). I sell a lot more stuff on Audiogon. My username there is greg7 for...

    Elekit TU-882AS

    Awesome push-pull tube headphone amp. I've used this on everything from 600 ohm Beyer DT880 to 50-ohm Fostex T50RP and 32-ohm Grados (Grados love this amp). I'm doing a major stereo amp upgrade so I need to free up some cash. Bought brand new in box from VK Music only a few months ago. This has...

    FS: Elekit TU-882AS PRICE REDUCED!

    I was just offered the deal of a lifetime on a pair of headphones and I'm currently cash poor. I HATE selling this because it's practically brand new and awesome with every headphone I own (low and high impedance) but oh well. Buy it before I change my mind. It's less than a month old and I'm...

    ATH-ESW9a VERSUS ATH-ESW9 ???

    Is there any difference between the Japanese home model and the "a" American model? I mean as far as voicing, etc. It seems they're now identical but I can't find confirmation searching the forum.

    HRT Headstreamer

    Purchased brand new in October, 2012 from Amazon. Absolutely mint condition, maybe 100 hours total (only used sparingly at home, no travel, and I have other headphone amps). It drove both Grado SR225i, Fostex T50RP and Sennheiser HD600 all very well, with plenty of volume for all of them. The...

    Best woodies (wood cups) for Grados?

    I'm looking at several aftermarket wood cups for my SR225i.   Could someone guide me on which are "best" with respect to fit, finish and sound quality?   I'm looking at: Martin Custom Audio, Cabillas and Turbulent Labs

    Five Headphone Amplifiers Compared

    I recently decided to upgrade my Schitt Asgard. Following is a brief summary of several amplifiers for future reference.   The Asgard was purchased along with HD650 about a year ago. I chose it after an extended comparison against a Channel Island Audio VHP-2 + VAC-1, Elekit Tu-880 (with NOS...

    FS: Bel Canto DAC1.1

    I'm the second owner. The original owner had Bel Canto upgrade it from DAC1 to DAC1.1 status. I have the invoice for this upgrade. This DAC is in overall excellent condition and I rated it 8/10 only for age.   Asking $400 and I may consider trades, mainly for headphones (Denon D5000, AT...

    Looking to upgrade home amplifier, need some input, several candidates

    Grado RS2i versus SR225i ???

    Thanks, but what I really need to know is how the two sound versus each other by someone who's heard both of them back to back. The perception of brightness is what's relevant, not baseline FR graph overlays.

    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9A questions

    Do these come with a mini to 1/4" headphone plug adaptor? I just ordered a pair of the headphones and I don't have an adaptor. One other question while the headphones are en route: I bought them from Adorama Camera (Headroom was out of stock) Is Adorama a legit seller? They are listed as an...

    For those that upgraded from Elekit TU882 amp(if you have HD650 also, even better)

    Upgrade your DAC first, definitely (and maybe the digital cable as well). Improvements to the source often provide the biggest gains in my experience. I have the Elekit and HD650 and it's a good match. I alternate between a Virtue Audio Piano CD Player and a MHDT Paradisea DAC (with Western...

    Are there any portable amps better than comparable home models?

    I'm assembling my first headphone system and I'm looking for an amplifier to drive Sennheiser HD600 or HD650. Are there any portable amps that are "better" sounding than comparable home amps that cost about the same? My budget goes up to $1000 if necessary, preferably $600. I'm looking hard at...
