Vana? Hmm. I’ll email them again.

Yah. Tbh I sent them a dunk email yesterday and was shocked the responded on a Sunday at all.

If I'm honest, I mostly reached out to find out if the 3k is the real price here since on the Ferrum site it says the 3k includes over $500 of VAT when buying direct that us buyers shouldn't need to pay afaik

I finally gave a proper listen to the latest Wolves In The Throne Room album. It's pretty good, and the Susvaras really shine with it, in terms of imaging and spacing.

Anyone have any impressions of the Enleum 23R with the Susvara yet?
Are the internals different to the bakoon 13R?

How does the WA33 compare to the HSA1B for Susvara??
I feel the WA33 EE JPS is much better than the HSA1B for the Susvaras. Better soundstage, dynamics, bass, etc. The HSA1b sounds less crisp and detailed too. The WA33 costs more than the HSA1b, so I guess that should be taken into consideration too

Hi everyone, finally thinking of taking the plunge on these. Only thing is, after I spend all my budget ion them, I won't be able to upgrade my DAC/AMP combo for a while so I wanted to see if they could drive them reasonably well. Right now I have the Matrix Audio Mini-i 3 Pro (https://www.matrix-digi.com/en/products/489.html). It's far from the most powerful AMP (DAC is fine) but reviews say it punches above its price weight in that department. It drives my Empyreans and Rognirs with ease but of course these are nowhere near as hard to drive as the Susvaras. So I wanted to ask the knowledgeable folks here if you think this AMP will work until I can get a new one, or if I'm wasting my time trying to drive the Susvaras from them.

Thanks!

If you want these headphones, and youre thinking of upgrading amplification in the future, then get the headphones. You have to start somewhere. I don’t know how your amp will sound with the Susvara, but yes it is under powered.

Considering that my Shanling M30 can also drive them and is "listenable" with Turbo gain 1530 mW @ 32 Ω your amp should theoretically work too with 1900mW@33Ω, balanced for at least not needing to turn the volume up top 100.
Though I think the limitations and impacts of how amps react at the border of amplification can be different like brighter sound signature and it's up to personal preferences and limits for what is still acceptable (especially if you know how effortless your less demanding gear sounds on the same source)
Just my 5 cents.
Alternative: get a cheap but powerful amp like my used FLUX-FA10 :wink: in the meantime and hook it up to your old source
