    *UPDATE* REVIEW: 21 "Mainstream" portable amps. GoVibe MAGNUM added.

    The formatting of this thread is: The impressions of each amp. Then the rankings on a cumulative level, although SQ based, it's not the sole reasoning, as you can find that out from most every review out there. With portables, I believe practicality plays a HUGE HUGE role. After the rankings...

    New Millett Hybrid Maxed Amp

    Just thought I would post a quick pic of the reason I am still up tonight. Just having real trouble turning Opeth's Deliverance CD off. Had a bit of trouble with way too much gain and getting the volume knob too high with my KSC75's earlier tonight, and even with my HD580s, I cant even make it a...

    TTVJ Portable Millet Hybrid Tube Amp

    I have for sale my TTVJ portable tube amp. This was the final Portable Hybrid to leave TTVJ. It has the damping mod done by TTVJ that eliminates the tube pinging that earlier amps experienced. The amp is in mint condition, both cosmetically and functionally. This amp has plenty of gain and can...

    Please recommend a good sounding [preferably tube] portable DAC/headphone amp

    After my recent troubles with the otherwise pretty nice sounding HiFiMan EF2A, though I'm not entirely ruling out giving a replacement EF2A a chance, I feel I should be keeping my ears open for something else to take its place, as I'm now a bit wary of HiFiMan's quality control issues.   In...

    ALO The Continental vs. Millet Hybrid

    Hey everyone, I've had my eye on the new portable tube amp by ALO, but I've also been wondering about the Millet Hybrid too. I've been searching around the boards, but I haven't found any comparisons between the two. I thought that was kinda odd since they occupy the same market, unless I'm...

    Just Ordered the TTVJ Slim

    I just spoke to Todd at TTVJ and ordered the Slim for $349 USD. From all the reading, it seems like a perfect fit for me. Nevertheless, I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse. It's not like an amp is totally necessary, and there are certainly less expensive amps on the market. (and waaay more...

    BLOX TM5 - top earbud, competing with PK1 and OK1

    BLOX TM5 - top earbud, competing with PK1 and OK1 Like with my other reviews, I would start from the end, so conclusions first: TM5 is the most efficient among the best earbuds and the best among the most efficient. It is on par with Yuin PK1 and OK1 in terms of SQ, but plays better...

    I truly believe these are one of the best Classical Music headphones I've ever heard

    When I first tried these I was underwhelmed.  I had a preconception that because the headphones were closed back that they would resemble the DT770 in a way and have that extra impact bass.  These headphones are in fact so pronouncedly different from every other Beyer I've tried, that I wasn't...

    TTVJ Slim: The Super Sweet Portable Amp (Review)

      TTVJ, or Todd The Vinyl Junkie, as most people know him by, has unveiled his second portable headphone amp. While I may be a little late to the party, there haven’t been very many reviews on this particular amp. If you didn’t know, Todd was very recognized for releasing the very first...

    Are there any [near portable] class A tube headphone amps out there?

    Blu-Tack vs Dynamat?

    I've heard of both being used as dampening material. I have a hard time believing there isn't a clear winner between the two simply because of the huge differences (putty vs sheets). Anyone care to speak a little on the subject?

    DIY Amps?

    Are these worth looking into? I have seen several on the FS/FT forums that seemed pretty nice and decent prices too. Are there folks around here that would build one for someone else? No way I would be able build it myself. I am thinking about spending in the $250 range. I was looking at...

    Is $80 a good price for Sennheiser HD 595?

    Hey all,  I've been wanting to get my feet wet with some Sennheisers and recently came across some HD 595's for $80 on Craigslist. They are only 3 months old and have had light use. I've been looking for some HD 580's or HD 600's, but haven't had a lot of luck. Seems like these are a good...

    TTVJ Hybrid Portable owners registry

    Seeing as that there are approx 200 of these amps in existence and most likely most of them owned by Head-fiers, I thought it might be interesting to who owns one or two of these amps. I know that some of these amps have also made their way to Japan.

    TTVJ Millett Portable Hybrid = Awesome

    I can't figure out why all the other threads on this are in the 'fullsize amp' category. This thing is so small! Certainly smaller than my iQube, and thinner than my D10. Anyway, just got it to use with my JH13s. The synergy is amazing. It is so soft and seductive. It sucked me into the...
