Received The New Geshelli Archel 2 AMP for review

I just wanted to give some initial thoughts and a heads up for a comparison video and a review of one of the new Geshelli amps that I hope to have out this week.

I’ve done some preliminary comparisons between the Magni 3, Archel 2 and Liquid Spark. I have to say its a very capable competitor in the headphone amp space, and I’m not talking about budget amp space. It’s become clear to me that a lot of the more expensive headphone amps, for the most part, lack a bit of power using the balanced plug. The Archel 2 is pretty much noise-free and has nearly the same power output as amps that cost 3 times the price.

Is it the budget AMP king? you’ll have to wait for the review. However, I can say its certainly in the running.

Archel 2 AMP

The archel 2 is a great value imo and sounds really good for the price. The geshelli stack is really nice as well

Curious to see your full opinions :+1:

Is there a reason the Atom not in that list?

Can’t wait to receive my Archel 2.5 :grin:

I don’t have an Atom near me right now. I’ll have sent the review unit back before I have the atom. I want to compare to what I have in hand. Atom is a great amp too.

I’m pretty sure I’ll be ordering one myself very soon. Geshelli are awesome and I want to show some love. I think the 2.5 will be just about perfect for most people.

Yeah i really dont need it, but i love the look, and i enjoy supporting USA companies so as soon as i saw it it was a no brainer for me

Topping A50 is out too, by the way…
We’re spoilt for choice apparently! :smile:

It looks a lot better in person. Especially the flat black with the smoked Plexi… I found the scheme I’m ordering

and they have word that a D90 is coming soon. anyone know about a matching A90 amp?

Topping is so bad about their website…A50 is out, but nothing on their site. :stuck_out_tongue:

That is pretty! I’d love to review them for the website if they send them.

Lol, I mean… give them some time, they just released the A50 :sweat_smile:

well…they like having stacks, so it’s a legit question, eh?

say what you will about topping they make some really pretty shit

Is that a compliment or an insult lol

It’s a compliment I love topping’s designs but sometimes they do have a miss

lets hope the amp measure out well like the D50s DAC did.

Well, talking about inexpensive DAC/amps, I open youtube and I see this… looks like Oluv (aka clavinetjunkie) finally upgraded his little topping dx3, lol!

Watching now!
