    Are they shown on your website?
     
  4. TSAVJason
    It appears not. I'll have to get that corrected. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I see a few brands aren't updated yet.

    Also, I've read up on the impedance(s) for the iHA, but I haven't seen much experience-based impressions on whether the amp synergizes well with Grados. Anyone have any firsthand experience? I've got ZMF Ori's which will be fine, but my other go-to is a nice pair of PS1k's and I'd love to make this stack my endgame! Any thoughts or impressions would be very appreciated!

    Indeed we need more user impression on the IHA-6, especially how it partners with different headphones. I have used the GS2000e as a demo to our desktop rig back in Canjam Singapore, they pair up well in my opinion, first class dynamic and dead silent even at the most quiet passage. I think our Singapore dealer has done a good job by recommending this setup to us.

    I've only used a PS500 with modified balanced cable on the iHA-6. It sounded great - very clean, fast, and punchy. But I suspect the normal single-ended termination wouldn't work as well due to the higher output impedance on the SE outputs.

    Good day,
    how many Mw is SE output power for 600 ohms of product?
    Is it enough for Bayerdynamic T1 and Hifiman He400i?
     
  9. TSAVJason
    More than enough

    Thank you,
    as you know Beyerdynamic T1 (Gen 1 ) is using SE, which do you prefer for Beyerdynamic T1 IHA-6 or Ha-1 mk2 ?

    The iHA6 is of course balanced and HA1 SE. You get a great amp either way so it really depends on whether or not you want solid state or tubes and if you want the balanced option or not. The HA1 is beginning to receive great reviews and the iHA6 has some great reviews already

    More then enough, the iHA6 can drive HE560 with ease in single end, so you don't need to worry about TWO and HR400i. I'll recommend you set the iHA-6 to low current high gain when pair with T1, and high current low gain with HE400i.

    Ok, I'll give you the low down. That product is born 220/50, if it isn't still and it's "new" ....well it isn't. It is "new" but if it's claimed as 120V/60Hz it is modified but NOT by Cayin and NOT in a Factory Authorized way. So it's true that this really is US/Taiwan markets specific.

    Again US/Taiwan, possibly a couple others don't use the 220V/50Hz. Cayin builds territory specific and does not authorize any modifications as the mod will violate that warranty.
    So other than possibly from the seller in Hong Kong in your eBay link, there would no longer be a Cayin factory warranty the moment it has a non-factory authorized voltage/supply modification.

    Now allow me to give you the really good news. If you are in the US market. The price you saw on eBay is moot. New with a full warranty US product. ....well I can't say yet but ......it's so close to that eBay price .....to get it here is only a couple weeks away would be a very good idea. If you're in the market send me a PM and I'll send you a list of all Authorized US Dealers.

    lol ....so if you're not from the US my apologies for the novel.
