    Can I confirm something with you guys? The PHA-2A has no line out mode like the PHA3 right?

    Hi,everyone how's about the pha 2a battery life,can it charge them and playing at the same time?it looks great but many people claim that the es9018k2m has some noise floor, that's why oppo choose go to the es9028k2m

    If you read through this thread, 1st question is already answered. Yes it charges while playing IF you connect the charge port (2nd mini-usb).
    Noise floor? Near dead quiet. For my iem, I have to turn it on high gain and the volume to near max to hear any noise floor. Suffice to say you don't need high gain for iems, even any demanding iem should do on the medium gain.

    How is the GSM buzz from this dac/amp when connected to a smartphone and running spotify/tidal over 3G/4G? My RSA Intruder is terrible and I'm considering switching to either this or the 3A when/if it comes out.

    Also, does anyone know if there will be and Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals on this amp anywhere?

    No buzz. PHA-2A is dead silent

    I've just asked Sony UK when they will be supplying the PHA-2A.

    Their as expected vague reply was:-

    In reference to enquiry about the Sony PHA-2A, please be advised that we do not have a confirmation yet when it will be supplied in the UK.


    But at least it wasn't a straight, there are no plans to supply, so hopefully we might get a UK/EU version?
