    Feliks-Audio ELISE...New thread.

    I had a similar problem to this with a tube buffer in my system a little while back, which I eventually discovered was interference from a wi-fi booster (one of those TP Link boosters that uses the electrical mains cables to transmit the wi-fi signal). Could be that or other interference. But...

    Thanks for clarifying. That is a shame and a significant thing to miss out on when they usually come with a lifetime driver warranty! Got stitched up with a faulty driver on my LCD2s last year, so the lack of warranty is probably a deal breaker for me. Yes, fair point. But that still doesn't...

    Hi @SpanielChops I have been considering purchasing some Auteurs and recently contacted the guy at Acorn Audio about a demo (which all sounded a bit high risk as he expects a full RRP deposit (£1699) and also demands that you to take full responsibility for safe return, which all sounds rather...

    Feliks-Audio ELISE...New thread.

    Happy to share them @LoryWiv Currently I own LCD2s and some Focal Elegias for closed-back duties, so they will be my starting point for comparison. I do love the LCD2s and it is only really reading-up that suggests the amp might not be perfect for them. The Elegias are perhaps a little dry...

    Feliks-Audio ELISE...New thread.

    Hi Elise fans. I'm sure this question has been asked before, so apologies, but having now found a wonderful headphone amp in the Elise (well, once it's been repaired anyway - that's another story), I am researching headphones that might be a better match than my LCD2s. I find the combination...

    Audeze lcd-2 Reliability Issues!?

    On a slightly more positive note, I have been told that the replacement drivers use the newer soldered terminals, so in theory should be more reliable. Plus, you get a new 3 year warranty on them. There is no doubt in my mind that there is a design fault with the older models and maybe someone...

    Feliks-Audio ELISE...New thread.

    Thanks for the responses. The unit has the stock tubes I believe and as it is from 2018 I am assuming the mark 2. I will be having a play with a different DAC as a source later following a very sensible suggestion that it could possibly be the high voltage output of my Chord DAC not helping the...

    Feliks-Audio ELISE...New thread.

    Yes, aware of all that. I have been buying and selling hifi for years myself. Many times starting my for sale description with 'reluctant sale of...' which is often the case. It was the situation of just having posted about my excitement about getting hold of an Elise and the next post was...

    Well that sounds like a thumbs down if ever I've heard it :(

    Feliks-Audio ELISE...New thread.

    Hi all. New Head-fi-er here and thoroughly enjoying the website and thoroughly helpful people on here. Having spent the majority of my hifi life investing in full stereo/speaker set-ups, I am now getting into headphones in a more serious way. I am also very new to tubes (i.e. valves - yes...

    Tube Headphone Amps with Preamp Functionality

    Thanks again @kvik . Very helpful. Really like the look of the Feliks, but like you say, perhaps not the best for the LCD2s, which is a shame because they're lovely looking units which seem to be very well reviewed. The other one I now have my eye on (after a bit of saving up) would be the...

    Tube Headphone Amps with Preamp Functionality

    Thanks @m-i-c-k-e-y That looks interesting. Not sure about availability in the UK and always a bit concerned about Chinese products if anything goes wrong, but the unit itself looks like it ticks the right boxes. Had a look at the Feliks units too, so thanks for that @gimmeheadroom . Hadn't...
