It came with the HSA-1b, I don't think it's sold separately. But I'll search online and see if I can find it as well.



Yes, via the same adapter you use conventional headphones on the HSA-1b with. With the Marantz I've gone straight to the speaker taps. I do suspect results could be better directly from the taps for the TC/Susvara, but I'm erring on the side of caution with it being a tube amp.
Ah I see, so you’re using the adapter that came with HSA-1b.

Get the EF1000 ! It makes the Susvara the best headphones on the planet...period !

I would love to try it one day. But from your descriptions of the heat, plus the size itself.. I'm out of space + my ambient temps here are around 30 to 32 degC if air conditioning isn't on.

I'm already really happy with the sound I'm getting from the May/Athena/Apollon. There is another class D amp I'm looking at, which is the AGD Audion monoblocks, which I may buy over from a friend, but it is currently back with the dealer for some repairs.

Does anyone use ZMF cables on their Susvara? Anyone got pictures of the 3.5mm connectors on them?

Thanks

Yeah I know the ZMF headphones are mini 4 pin but you can order custom ZMF cables and have them terminate in 3.5mm but there's no pictures of them which is why I asked

Beautiful amp indeed.
Can't decide which Design I prefer, leaning to the Enleum tho
And the internals are very neat and tidy. I still wonder how he can create a high performing amp in such a small footprint. Really curious what sound improvements the 23R brings. In terms of design, I still lean towards 13R….that red urushi lacquered knob is just stunning.

I dislike Red, for that reason I prefer the Enleum aesthetics slightly
