Headphone amps

Post by Living Sin on Mon Aug 27, 2018 11:13 am

Right this is one area where im not good at. Im looking for an Headphone amp to replace what im using which is Too big & secondly does not fit Aesthetically.. 

None of this little Chi-Fi pocket things? Record Deck is now history, im just down to A CD player with Studio FX processor. Be better if someone could recommend a unit with Balanced input on XLR

Get stuffed you Wanker Karns.  WTF is wrong with getting a CDP with a headphone jack.

Why you waste your money on shit is beyond me.

You always saying Hi-Fi is a rip off yet you continually play with the shit.

Put your money where your mouth is for a change, you lying sack of Demented Poop!

CD player phones outputs sound shocking, this is how i know Tips is DEF. 

I use a CD player into an processor out the processor into the Headphone amp. This is why i need an headphone amp. CD player ever breaks down ill just replace it with a laptop into streamer into the same processor. Cost fuck all 

CDP: £80 2nd hand + £9 for new belts
FX: £90
Headphone amp: £90
Headphones: 2nd hand £75

Yep i refuse to spend money on Hi-Fi but at least it sounds good for small outlay.

I liked the Schiit Asgard 2 but I’m not much of a headphone listener. Shane is though, and he rates it. Far better built than anything else at the price. 

If you want a headphone amp, this or the Valhalla 2 would seem to be options. 

There may be integrated amps that will give the same results, but it isn’t really something I know loads about.

It’s a great example of the BS that gets picked up on and spouted by hifi “know all’s”. 

The stock A400 is said only to show it’s best with high end speakers. It was still cack. The A400x is ten times better (and still not great). It uses the same tricks as Tom Evans did in the GTE mods, but the Hi-Fi press raved about the original and dissed the 400x despite wetting themselves over the Tom Evans mods. 

I had all three together. A400x and A400GTE were near identical and both pissed on the A400. Still only OK though. Far better kit out there.

The funniest part was people buying the A400 over the A400x because the reviewers said it as better, then sending it to Tom Evans and paying £250 to do the mods that came as standard on the 400x! That’s hifi folk for you,
