    Flux Lab Acoustics Dual Mono Headphone Amplifier, VOLOT - Mythical Giant or Giant Killer ? News, Speculation, Impressions, reviews and discussion

    Aye, got that message as well. I've been using it at high gain with my AB1266 all the time.

    Noticed this today. "Dear customers, we hasten to inform you that the first batch of amplifiers has been sold, thank you for your trust and appreciation of our work. Due to some delays in the delivery of rare components, preorders for the new batch of amplifiers will be available by...

    Not that much in my opinion, but I'm coming from a tube amp as well (Malvalve Headamp Three). That one was producing much more heat. I was actually surprised on how "cooler" the Volot was in comparison.

    I guess they wanted to include something with more premium feeling. Once you get used to the buttons you need, it's not really a problem.

    Is this for the amp or the remote? My remote has been stuck for 2 days at clearance now ("Clearance in Progress"). Surprising given how quick it was for the amp.

    There apparently were problems with shipping, not sure it was Flux's fault. He has been on a 10 days vacation as well, he was back this last weekend. He already told me he wouldn't have started writing his review till the 26th at least.

    Well, he replied me on FB. In fact, he hasn't received it yet, he should this friday. Then burn-in, testing and writing, which won't start before 26th july. Still some long wait then.

    It was expected for yesterday, but nothing. Today there was a new dac review, thus I guess it won't happen. No idea on what's holding him back.

    Good to know. I don't use to turn on my amps without something attached. But I'm quite surprised there isn't some sort of protection for this (or a warning at least).

    I wouldn't overexagerate things. There are a lor of Flux amps around, none of them has that certification, but we haven't heard about burned apartments. There doesn't seem to have been many failure reports either. Not minimizing a serious issue, ofc, but things sometimes just break, even the...

    The Volot was supposedly developed with Susvara in mind, thus I'd expect great things. I own a Volot, but unfortunately not the Susvara.

    They recommend 100h burn in time, and to turn it on 30 minutes prior to music listening to reach its full potential.

    This is not a desktop friendly amp for sure! It may not look that big on my pictures, but that's because the T+A MP3000HV on the lower floor is mighty...

    Looks like Flux is monitoring the thread. Vitalyi just emailed me telling that presets should be kept, one just has to wait 10 seconds after setting them. Indeed, today I turned it off immediately after having touched those settings, as I had no time to listen. Will check later once I turn it...

    Finally some listening time! It's soon, but I'm already liking what I'm hearing. Awesome spaciousness and precision, power seems not to have limits, high gain setting already plenty enough for the AB1266, Gain+ not needed, where my old Malvalve Headamp Three was at its limits. Volume apart I...

    One nice thing I just got informed of is that there will be a free high quality aluminium remote, it just won't be included in the delivery as they had not received them yet when they shipped the amp. It will come separately. Amp must be run for 30 minutes to achieve its full potential.

    I didn't even know it was released. It was spoiled in a FB post some time ago, but there wasn't any further update on it.
