great perspective review ...credit to hynos1 the pathfinder !
Yes with all my heart, I want to thank hypnos1, for without him there would have been no Elise. In particular, I also want to thank Henryk and Lukasz of Feliks Audio for producing such a marvellous headphone tube amplifier and at such an affordable price.
Great review UT, you are the Elise's true fan
Very comprehensive review UT...you have done Feliks-Audio (and me!) proud...many thanks.
And congratulations on the [i]extensive[/i] work you have been carrying out, putting this exceptional amp through its paces, along with others - too many to name all(!), but notably JazzVinyl...

Great review, UT. Hope you will write a summary of all the wonderful tubes you have tested with the Elise.
Fun fact: The Head-Fi homepage introduction to this review uses the word "tube" 4 times in1 sentence. Just in case we missed it.
Congrats on an excellent and comprehensive review. Just wanted to add that we haven't found one person yet who is not thrilled with the Elise among some 25 owners to date.
The sound is glorious and addictive....
Mazda 6N7G are French tubes...great sound. Check out the Elise thread for detail impressions of it.
A great informative review
Thanks all. I'll be writing a summary review of all my favourite tubes in due course. I'm still waiting on Visseaux 6N7G and Fivre 6N7G brown base. The review for EL3N is ongoing now in Elise thread by H1. It seems too promising. Once I get hold of those Philips EL3N and adapters, I'll add on to the tubes review. What you see in the photos are all my favourite tubes. Some are missing from the photos as I couldn't possibly add photos for all of them.
My current favourites are 2 FDD20 and FDD20/ECC31 with Tung Sol 5998 using HE560.
Can anybody tell me how they fare driving orthos and other hard to drive phone. TIA
Drives my HE560 planar magnetic well. Others have good results with ZMF Blackwood, LCD2.2 and Ether-C. Check out the Elise thread -New.
