Sharps is a latest addition to the Jaben GoVibe inventory. I've got one as a demo and here is my impression.

I guess the names of Govibe amp were taken from guns. For example PPK, Derringer and Magnum. The name of the Sharps must to be taken from Sharps rifle in the 19C that was designed by Cristian Sharps. Though the name was taken from individual surname, I felt this amp sounded very "sharp" as the name implies.

Sharps looks like SR71 and takes two 9V batteries as well. Something similar but the sound characteristic is different.
Sounding of SR71 is warm and musical, this is good RSA house sound. I feel it is like a veteran musician playing tunes.
By contrast, the sounding of Sharps is energetic, fast and dynamic. its something like a young musician performing a live stage.
Sharps sounded very transparent, this also contributes to enhance the sharpness feeling.
Sharps is a dynamic sounding amp but the sounding is not so exaggerated, Sharps sounded neutral and the bass is not so prominent. This is good for the people who don't want colored sound.
Sound staging is another virtue of Sharps. Not only wide to horizontally but the sound staging of Sharps has more height and depth like 3D sphere.

Combining with iMod is great, but the sounding is more remarkable with T51 line out.
This could be a killer combo for Rock.
