    We try to design for 10 year. Typical in the industry is probably 5. In headphone stuff, often it seems like 1 year

    Exactly what I've seen from HeadAmp. And sadly I agree with the 1 year trend from some personal audio companies. :frowning2: The current GS-X Mk2 was introduced back in 2012 and still going strong...likely one of (the many) reasons why HeadAmp's resale value holds up so darn well!

    For the new mini owners, thoughts on paring with LCD4 and Abyss 1266 tc? Looking for a contrasting amp to my WA5le. But nothing that’s bright.
  4. MacedonianHero Contributor
    Drives them both with full authority! I would say this amplifier has a great sense of transparency and a hint of warmth to it. Quite punchy and authoritative but still very musical at the same time.

    Thanks for the insight. It does sound like what I’m looking for.

    How is the air and soundstaging? There are some amps that lose that air and sound flat.

    Not on this amp. It isn’t the last words for air and sound staging but there are plenty of it. The GSX mini is an all around performer.

    Is this amp an overkill for aeon flows or lower tier headphones?

    Thanks to you and @justin w. for weighing in.....

    I think it is quite excellent. So far, I've used it with the Phi TC, HD800S and LCD-4/4z and loved them all with it!

    I like your other answer better.

    I didn't fully read yours, and didn't fully agree. :) I was a bit lazy, but have rectified it.

    Depends if you want musical sound (R2R) or accurate details (delta sigma)
  15. Fatdoi
    It's always better to give more power to the cans than under power them.. But that'll depend on sensitivity etc.... As long as the requirements not unrealistic like an amp capable to drive Hifiman HE6 and Campfire Andromeda with full authority and complete blackness on both...
