    Thanks for that.. Need more impressions before I decide thou these 2 amps will be a significant upgrade as currently im using the c&c bh2 and my fav the elekit tu-hp01

    627x has no wow-factor. What that means is that the sound is non-fatiguing and it is ideal for long session. Superb mid-range and bass but the treble is no bright. It is as best as OPA627 can be implemented on a device of this size.
  3. nazrin313

    And that means what exactly? The pure2 has that wow factor? Can you elaborate? From all my research so far it is well agreed that the portaphile amp is highly regarded and better than loads of balanced o/p amps out there.. Just now need solid comparisons between the 2...

    Certain tuning will grabs one attention rights away. They are either bright or bass heavy running which give the perception clarity of analog warm sound. That is not the case for 627x.

    Thanks.. I think I understand thou..sadly I cant really demo any audio equipment cos there are no audio shops here in my country. So, I all purchases so far has been based on great reviews here in headfi. So, sadly for me, I gotta buy one time correctly most of the time.
    I did however demo's the elekit tu-hp01 and it blew my mind and sounded great with IEMs and for just USD$200 is a great sounding piece of kit. Only downside is that it will only drive up to a maximum of 150ohms. (although rated to 32ohms only)
  7. audionewbi
    That is the reality for large portion of head-fi community.
    Just to inform you he is releasing a new 627, it is said to be smaller.
  8. nazrin313
    Lol, yeah from all my readings this is kinda true...sad isnt it? Im so envious of a people who can pick and choose wisely. New 627? Really? I will have to wait for a review on the new 627.
    Anyways, back on track, anyone who has the new duo compared it to other high performing amps?
  9. quantx
    New 627 or new 627 x ?
    I'm also trying to decide for Pure II, ALO MK III or 627x.
    Listening principally acoustics (jazz + classical)

    Only portaphile and vorzuge amps tickles my fancy now.. Just need more a/b info

    I have done some of that in my DUET review, which is on front page, or in my signature. They are comparable in a number of areas, PURE II taking the cake for low noise floor (though DUET isn't far behind) and form factor. It also has a more natural progression of stage width from bass all the way to the upper frequencies than does the DUET. But both are incredible. 
  12. nazrin313
    I have no doubt that the amps from Vorzuge are great amps..and the Pure II is sitting on top of my wishlist (with the 627X).
    I wonder if you ever heard the Elekit TU-HP01, its a japanese amp and I luv it to bits..if you have heard it, how does the Pure II compare?
  13. shigzeo Contributor
    I have heard the Elekit TU-HP01. But again, only for about twenty minutes. It is a fine amplifier, but has more noise than the PURE II. Funnily enough, most Japanese amps are targeting sound style rather than benchmark able sound quality. It's an interesting dichotomy. I don't necessarily prefer one over the other, but when an amp markets itself for IEMs it had better properly drive them. The PURE II does a better job of that than the Elekit. How much better would be up for a long and drawn-out study.
  14. nazrin313
    Agreed with the noise but using the Muses02 Opamp on it brings a stupid smile on my face...Its ridiculously good for a USD$200 amp, really well made too.
    Im not in a rush to upgrade (cos of the SQ of the Elekit) hence I will take time and read reviews upon reviews of both PureII and 627X.
    Keep it coming guys....
