    Pico - USB DAC/Amplifier From HeadAmp

    I have to admit I wasn't all that fired up about Justin's upcoming offering when I first heard about it, other than his stellar build quality I just didn't quite get what was going to separate it from the other offerings on the market. Ok, yeah, I knew it was supposed to be a higher quality DAC...

    Headamp to receiver?

    Is this even a possibility? I am trying to use my NR-1008, basically as the DAC, and have my Schiit Magni amp hooked up to it. How would I go about making the connections? I would like to go this route, so that I am able to use the head amp for watching TV, Blurays, and stuff from my PC that is...

    My Headphone Amp Design!!!

    I needed a headphone amp to drive my pair of headphones, not like they needed amplification in terms of SPL but in terms of SQ (Sennheiser HD555 with foam pad removed and damping added on the surrounding walls around the drivers).    I wanted to design my own amp that would upgrade the sound...

    Three-Part Review: HeadAmp Gilmore Lite v2 w/ DPS

    This is loaner #3 (of 6) of my Loaner Program, for the HeadAmp Gilmore Lite v2 w/ DPS! HeadAmp's Gilmore Lite is already a great popular entry-level home-based solid-state, but few around here have one with the accompanying Dedicated Power Supply. The knowledge on the forum of the Gilmore Lite...

    Headamp's GS-X vs Gilmore Lite for high-end Grado

    It's my understanding that Dr. Kevin Gilmore designed the Dynalo amp for Grado's specifically to match well with their low impendence. Considering that the gilmore lite is a dynalo, and able to drive the Grado's extremely well - is there any true sonic difference between upgrading to the Gs-x...

    Impressions - HeadAmp GS-X

    Since tomorrow's my last day with my Arcam DiVA CD73, I thought I'd better break out the GS-X and try the combo! First, a pic of how the setup looks. Next, for the umpteenth time I have to give kudos to the people at Arcam, who put dual outputs on the CD73 (and other players too of...

    Review: HeadAmp GS-X (single-ended)

    Primer on the GS-X For those unfamiliar with the HeadAmp GS-X, I'll preface this by saying that there are solid-state amps, and then there are top-tier solid-state amps. The upper echelon. The amps with huge price tags, built to last a lifetime. The ones you always think about upgrading to...

    The HeadAmp GS-X has landed!

    I wouldn't usually do these kinds of threads but this amp is so rarely seen or talked about and so few have it, it deserves some limelight attention! I got mine in today! I spent over 10 minutes unpacking it! Justin is absolutely without a doubt one of the finest amp vendors we have and I'm not...

    A Six-Way Solid-State Epic Throwdown! This review originally began as a simple three-way between the HeadAmp Gilmore Lite, Eddie Current EC/SS, and Heed Audio CanAmp, when I owned them at the same time at the end of June '07. However, I recently realized that I also owned another similar amp...

    Comparison Review: Gilmore Lite DPS vs Elpac

    Intro Sign #1,057 that Head-Fi's gotten ahold of you: you start acquiring components for the sole purpose of writing about them to share with the community of zany headphiles. Such is the case with this. I originally acquired the Gilmore Lite v2 w/ DPS in December '06 - the Limited Edition...

    Three-way Review: HeadAmp AE-2 vs RSA Hornet M vs Rockhopper Mini³

    Intro More than 5 months ago, at the beginning of the summer, I had plans to do a multi-way review of the latest portable amps. 5 amps were going to be included. Amps I ended up tossing out and why: - C&C Box v2, because Headb.com replaced this model with the Box+, and I didn't want to...

    Burn-in Review: HeadAmp AE-2 #24 vs #103

    Intro Not too long ago, I ordered up another AE-2, on top of the one I'd previously ordered in February this year, for two reasons: (1) I didn't entirely like the first one's gold volume knob, and (2) I didn't like the red LEDs that much either. So when I ordered up the second one, I asked...
