Haha. I was so surprised when the Soekris powered on directly off my phone... Eyes literally popped O_O. The battery bank does sharpen edges to sounds a bit giving off a sense of better spatial queuing to sharp attack sounds and it also gives the image a little more vibrancy or higher signal saturation (this might have to do with higher voltage swing of the amplifier or something given the headphones I'm listening to).Damn right...I mean, this says so much...and as a fellow stack-ite, this has me hyped right now!! Im just amazed the Sokeris can run portable/transportable like this!!!
Plugging Soekris directly into computer via high current USB cable DOES sound better slightly, bit more organic and just more "hi-fi", sadly, but this is such a nasty little portable for the price, imho, I'm having a lot of fun with it. If you're into R2R this is pretty neat. Dethonray Honey H1 sounds a little bolder and more energetic in treble, so it probably sounds really fantastic with the right gear, but for what I was using it for (power hungry vintage planar magnetics) this suits me better and I can probably sell my portable amps now (was never happy with the Honey amplifier for single ended use, and also digital volume kinda fiddly, imho).
