Seems they are legit, just had a reply on ebay. Company name is Audition 6. Also found the below comment in the HPA V281 thread.
 
"For EU buyers I recommend Heiko Boss at Audition-6. Great guy to deal with and he allows you to haggle a bit on the price. Very quick delivery too."

Has anyone listened to HE-560 or HE-6 through the V200/V100 amp? I am trying to decide between the Violectric and Burson soloist, please post your impression. 


I loved my v100, but when i've got the HE-6 it made me switch to v200. The v200 was decent with it, but that Hifiman is a power hungry beast. Give it more power and it will open up...

I've got an old stereo amp from the early 80’s for less than 100 bucks and never looked back. It's hooked straight to the speaker tap and the v200 in the chain as a run through pre-amp. It's great to try A/B/C comparisions or using multiple cans at the same time. I'ld reconsider the Soloist also. Check the HE-6 forum. Some guys actually using power amps or Krells to drive the HE-6.


I'm not sure abt the HE-560.

The v200 rules with everything else, mainly with the T1(on my head now) and the HD800 for me.

V281?

I'll second that with the he6. When I had the he6 and v200 the pairing while better than others was very mediocre.

I have V200 for a few months now, I'm greatly satisfied. Pairing with Linnenberg Vivace DAC is specially wonderful- aesthetically pleasing B/W combo with way better sound than Violectric USB 24/192, much more detailed, spacious and it add that very needed right amount of “sparkle”, but also a way expensive than Vio USB 24/192... :)

I need a little help. I just received the HD800 and V200. The volume knob on V200 is at 1 o'clock for normal listening levels. Pre gain settings on the amp is default. I wonder there is an issue with my gears or settings. From many reviews I read about V200, it should have enough power to drive HD800, but the volume knob at 1 o'clock is not loud. Could any other HD800 users help with this?
 
I'm using MacBook Pro + Concero DAC + V200 + HD800.
 
Thanks in advance.:D

I guess that also depends on your DAC's output volume.
And don't forget it's very easy to up the gain (don't forget to turn the V200 off).
