Hey Guys..

I'm selling my Ultra (aka Maxed-out) Meta42 which I got from a fellow head-fier in a trade for my SR-225 a few weeks ago. This amp has seen less than 10-15 hrs of usage, as I bought a Gilmore Lite amp out of curiosity at the same time. I am sticking with the Gilmore Lite as it pairs up better with my RS-1. This amp sounds as good as the Gilmore (IMHO, of course), but with a slightly forward presentation than the Gilmore.

This is quite a unique little Meta--instead of having an RCA input it has a mini-jack (1/8in) input. Having a mini-jack input allowed Norm of Headsave to pack all the other Meta components into a smaller than normal Hammand case measuring only 3.375”L x 3.25”W x 1.875”H.

Here are some pics taken by Norm (of Headsave) showing my amp along with some other amps to provide a perspective:

In the first picture, my amp is on the right extreme:


In the following picture, my amp is the one on the left extreme:


Quite a small little amp but, on the inside, it's a loaded Ultra Meta 42. Most Maxed Meta42s going on sale here have only 2 buffers per channel, but this one has 4 buffers per channel. This is one loaded amp and sounds pretty damn good. I guess this is THE MAX configuration that you could squeeze onto a Meta42 board. Here's the specs--

Elantec 2001 buffers stacked four high per channel
8620 op amp (on adapter so you can switch it out with other op amps)
Class “A” biased
ALPS Blue Velvet potentiometer
Panasonic 1000µF/25V PS caps
Vishay Dale 1% metal film resistors
Neutrik locking 1/4” headphone jack
Blue LED
Smallish silver Hammond case (as mentioned above)
Elpac power supply included

I'm asking $150, USPS Priority mail shipped in the United States. U.S Buyers only please. International shipping is a hassle I don't have the patience for. Payment by Paypal (add 3%), Money Order or Cashier's check only.

If interested or if you have any questions send me a PM,

Thanks,
Raaj

I'll second the recommendation... the Ultra is a fine sounding amp, good enough to have killed my upgraditis for quite some time (YMMV). The Elantec 2001 buffers used are widely recognized as excellent sounding (particularly quad stacked), and the sound is very clean and transparent (even better with a battery pack). Grab this amp and you'll be set for awhile. I know I am...

Meta42 design is definitely a very good design. Grab it while you can.

How about the Senn HD650s?


I am very interested in buying this. As long as they will compliment my HD650 headphones I plan on purchasing soon (I am new to the hobby
)

By the way, do you have any references of past sales/purchases?

Thanks in advance!

Aman
