    KG CFA3 headphone amp

    Currently I have the Hydra Zap + Vox. The hub hasnt been released to customer hands yet, I believe dealers are still awaiting shipment from Audiobyte. Sonic wise based on my listening for the past few weeks. The ygg a2 has a "thicker" sound with the hydra coming in sounding leaner. hydra also...

    KG CFA3 headphone amp

    I've been using ygg a2 for awhile and recently swapped to the audiobyte stack. Both very good but very different.

    Audiobyte Hydra Stack: Hydra.Vox + Hydra.Hub + Hydra Zap

    You send the unit to a vendor. Usually who you bought it from in the US. Not sure what the policy is outside of the US. Don't think the heat is an issue, think it's just how it was designed personally. Has been noted by others and also measured by one. Mine is actually second hand, so it's going...

    Audiobyte Hydra Stack: Hydra.Vox + Hydra.Hub + Hydra Zap

    Quick update. Have been chatting with Nicolae, and he has told me that my Zap needs to be sent in for a manual firmware update. I will be sending my units in and while its in there will also get checked for any issues in regards to the voltage drops. He seems to think its not a big issue, but...

    Audiobyte Hydra Stack: Hydra.Vox + Hydra.Hub + Hydra Zap

    Both units are hot for me. I do have them stacked though, and the Zap seems slightly hotter. No idea if the Vox is getting hot because it is on top of the Zap.

    Audiobyte Hydra Stack: Hydra.Vox + Hydra.Hub + Hydra Zap

    Interesting thing happening with the Zap. Randomly as I am listening to music and pause for awhile, I will hear what sounds like electronic deflating? Basically sounds like a sharp static sound that slowly reduces in volume. This has happened a couple of times so far, and had no idea what was...

    Do DACs matter?

    Under 1500, I would probably recommend looking into gungnir or soekris options for r2r/multibit. I believe the matrix xsabre pro is around there for a good DS option. I think there is a used one right now up for sale around 950 on audiogon. You might also be able to find Yggdrasil A1 under 1500...

    Audiobyte Hydra Stack: Hydra.Vox + Hydra.Hub + Hydra Zap

    So just got my stack in, so will have some thoughts in a few days. I dont have it with the newest firmware, but had a question. Is it normal for the bitrate shown on the Vox to not change via USB? I have it currently playing via W10 through the audiobyte firmware, but the bitrate is stuck at...

    Audiobyte Hydra Stack: Hydra.Vox + Hydra.Hub + Hydra Zap

    just a quick update for anyone that cares. apparently the wifi testing hasnt been done yet, but will be done after the launch is complete (who knows when that will be....), and spotify and tidal support sounds like it is a top priority for them to try and implement on the Hub. cut and pasted the...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    Been using the CFA3 for about 5 months, its easily the best I have heard with my HE6. 15w @50ohm. lovely stuff. A little bit obscure amp, so link below to the CFA3 thread. https://www.head-fi.org/threads/kg-cfa3-headphone-amp.938064/

    KG CFA3 headphone amp

    Will you make a box or custom cable? Wonder how "happy" the cfa3 will be if u connect it direct with a 2ohm load. The sr1a box simulates a 6 ohm load correct?

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Personally don't think arya and Ananda comes close to the he6 performance. But I have been known to be a hater of those headphones. Just to expand on it, I find the Ananda and arya too thin, bright, and unnatural sounding. The he6/he6se improve on those aspects plenty to me. Timber and a...

    KG CFA3 headphone amp

    So just a quick follow up. listened for a bit last night and figured I should share some more of my non professional broken ear thoughts. First I had basically given up on SS amps due to 2 main reasons. Treble harshness, and lack of body/thickness to the sound vs what I was hearing using tube...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Bigger Ben is nut. What a great amp. Buddy of mine is also running his he6se v2 off a 40w stereo tube amp and mogwai se, and the current belief is that the he6se loves large transformers and scales accordingly.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    I really like the eikon hybrid and autuer solid pads. Found no reason to explore other pads. Only issue for me is that it's slightly big and fits a bit loose on the he6se

    An exploration of Chord DAVE, MScaler, Qutest, and Holo May, HQPlayer

    Can you link these poor measurements? Everything I've seen on the may dac has actually been pretty great measurements. And yes I've had much more pleasant music experiences with poorly measuring r2r dacs than I've had with amazing measuring ds dacs. Not saying 1 is right or wrong, you are...
