The output impedance selector has 5 settings: 8-32 Ohms, 33-64 Ohms, 65-150 Ohms, 151-300 Ohms, 600 Ohms. The different options do impact the sound, and I haven’t had enough time to play with all the combinations yet.
I am also thinking about an additional tube amp that will be connected to the Singxer Sda 2.
The Cayin probably wouldn’t be bad either.
And probably good in this price range.
What annoys me is that now that I have soldered all the headphones with a 4 bin Xlr plug, I don’t want to go back to 6.3.
And if I find an amp that fits into the headphones, it will have a 6.3 connector.
I would even like the Cayhin, there is another one from Vincent that is supposedly the same as the Cayhin.
Yes would be a possibility.
I’ll have to see if I can find it in Germany.
I mean, I still have a 6.3 Furutech plug and a 4-wire cable here.
I would only have to have the counterpart of my 4 XLR plug and solder both minus cables from the XLR to the 6.3 mm plug, did I understand that correctly?
Must be the new one.
It is based on the Mk 1 and 2.
I suspect that the new one has more steam and probably different tubes.
Unfortunately, there are hardly any tests, reports or the like, which makes things really difficult.
I don’t know yet if I should dare to buy it.
It seems to be reasonable.
Everything else I’ve seen so far that would be a bit cheaper is based on hybrid or much more tube rolling.
I’m not too keen on that.
I could also get Cayin Cs 1h in Europe.
I think I’ll wait and see what Wavetheory has to say about his and then decide.
I think his model and the new one won’t be too far apart.
I googled it and i found nothing but germans links. It could be exclusive to you guys? To me it looks exactly the same as HA-1A MK2, it has the same specs as far as i can see except for the power, 100mW less at 32 and 600ohms. Tubes types seems the same but they could use different ones than HA-1A MK2.
Did you check Tor Audio and Feliks amps ?
I’ve been looking at the Cayin for a while but a few concerns put me off. Resolve also told me it’s super sensitive to vibration. It would be nice if @WaveTheory or anyone else could do some quick testings about that.
