    Thx for a review. Was looking on this little fella a few days ago. I wonder how would it pair with K702 (using tube-y Aune T1 as a dac lol :)).

    Looks like an excellent way to dip into the vacuum tube world. Looking forward to some comparisons.   Thank you for this!

    Nice review! How is the noise floor on this little thing?

    [user=40342]@Arvan[/user] it's surprisingly dark. Even with sensitive IEMs I haven't noticed any hissing or buzzing.

    [user=443709]@crabdog[/user] Thanks for this. I already have the magni, but I think I will spring for this to get the feel for that tube sound

    You're killing me here [user=443709]@crabdog[/user] as I really don't need this, but I never got around to trying out tubes so this'd be an inexpensive route.

    [user=466011]@0pethian[/user] Ultrasone Performance 860 and MSUR N650. Can drive 250 ohm easily   [user=336735]@Saoshyant[/user] If you do get it let me know how it works out for you. Btw the NS-08 is a bit cheaper and easier for tube rolling if you're into that
