Separate names with a comma.
the arrow doesnt run unless audio is detected through an input, hence no power switch
Yes I know, I was saying it doesn't have to be playing noise, just on. Some people will think noise serves a function on an amp like using it on a driver.
And that is where you and I diverge : I dont really care how big it is as long as it has what I'm looking for sonically. I had no problems jamming either D4 or P4 into a camera case, slotting my 6G Nano into the top and it looks like it was *made* for it. I realise that the uHA-120 is larger again, but when cn11 claimed that the bass had more impact than his Lisa III, I expect a lot of folk got excited. For those of us who value 'transportable' over strictly 'portable', this could be a good option - as you said, the fun comes in trying to separate reality from hype.
Might need a lot of 9volt batteries
keep it on topic please, the two amps in question are super portable,and taking something like the lisa iii outside gets old fast..trust me i speak from experience
just as a short summation: Did you notice a difference in your arrow now that it has had a chance to play? How about in the Leckerton?
still "burning in " be ready tomorrow @ 3
Its now 7am, Tuesday Apr 26 here in Oz, and I've run out of fingers. Let's have it Blasto.
Cool your jets, updating review now... OK, now comparing how each drives the HD650's
Lol, leave him alone guys.
THERE. It is what it is.
Thanks for the great review!
Great job! Looks like the Leckerton is for real. Can't wait for the AHA120 review. Are you getting the uHA120 also or just the AHA-120?
Btw, do you consider the Leckerton warm? My Arrow is warm to neutral by my standards so any warmer would be a no go for me.
AHA-120 still deciding if I should then buy the ER4s and UM3X or send Smeggy a pair of my T50RP's to mod (he gonna' pants 'em LOL) OR Buy a second AHA-120 and buy the Thunder P's, ER4's and UM3X after The CD player.
The X1061 itself is warm, so I didn't want to go there because I couldn't tell the source of the warmth apart, but I'd say they're equal.
The mids coming from the HD650's while on the UHA-4 are simply awesome, I cannot believe how well it runs them.
If you'll pardon me I've got to put my flame retardant jumpsuit on.
My Arrow is far from dry but that may have something to do with the 4,7uF Vcap dock sandwiched between it and my iMod. I appreciate the Arrow's versatility as well, as I want to drive more than just IEMs with it. But I can see that the UHA-4 may be better for IEMs only, and the usb dac is nice. There seems to be a lack of consensus on crossfeed superiority though.
