Just received Go-Vibe Petite+DAC. I connect it to Ipod Classic with headphone line out and use it with Ipod earplug. The sound is awesome , much improved to Ipod alone.

I'm sure the sound will be much better with LOD cable and UE super fi 5 Pro (still waiting for the delivery).

Just a short question: how long does it take for the amp to burn-in?

thanks.

I burned mine in and noticed it settled almost immediately...but by 100hrs it was pretty plateaued.

If you have the chance...listen to the GoVibe MAGNUM. That thing really is a wonder...it's a BEAST.

Is it just me, or does Go-Vibe sound like something battery operated a lady keeps hidden in her purse?

Mine took around 100 + hours to sound great already. Then it got to more than 1000 hours, as it was just the amp that I want with me day after day... as it's best on the go for its petite size and easy to replace AAA batteries.

It sure is a Great little monster that drives my ultra portable rig of Sansa Clip & UM1 superbly. No veil, nice clarity and good bass.

I am so sad when I can't find my precious Petite in my bag yesterday when I got home. If only I was amping my Sansa Clip... then it could not have been lost. (sigh) Now just got to bear with the loss till I finally get my hands on my next amp.

How I wish I have the "beast" too... especially now since the loss of my precious well burnt-in Petite.

But my fingers on the trigger for a Predator

and I just don't have further funds for it. I like the magnum 3 easily switchable gain settings and the nice bass (though not at max bass level for me).

Now the only "Magnum" I am enjoying now is a "Magnum" chocolate ice-cream.

Thanks for all response.

I like its size since it's small and easy to slip in the pocket. The bass to me is good. THe amount of bass depends on how you position earplug as well. I am using the earbug that comes with Ipod classic . WHen i put a little pressure on the plug , i can hear deep and punchy bass. I hope i can get better sound when i receive Super Fi 5 pro.

One question: When i plug Go-Vibe into laptop (which has on-board soundcard, i think), it works great. However, when i plug it in my PC, i can't hear a thing. Note that i have Creative Soundcard intalled in pc at PCI slot since PC on-board sourndcard is dead.

Any solution would be greatly appreciated,.

thanks.

Yeah, I saw one of these over at Uncle Wilson's site recently and it's got me thinking.

Maybe it's about synergy.

I really, really enjoy Ipod Classic / Go Vibe Petite / Sleek Audio Treble+ Bass+.

It hits the nail on the head for me. Just enough highs, airy, detailed. Mids, not in my face, not too distant, just right )for me) and lows of high quality, but never bloated.

Should keep me happy for a while.

Thanks for the reviews guys, I think I'm going to get one once the money comes in. It is only $126 in Hong Kong (well, it is sold under the "Soundrigor" brand, but it looks the same and says Go Vibe Petite on the amp).

No it doesn't

. By the way I heard Janben will be releasing a new model soon, after the Petite and Magnum meet the Go-Vibe Trojan XL

. Beware! 5000 hours and lots of lubricants needed to settle in. After its release all Petite owners will remove the name "Petite" from their signature.
