Re: Giella headphone amp

lejonklou wrote: 2020-12-18 18:25 I have decided to hold back on this change of feet on Giella. They were fine when first applied, but after 24h they've changed and gone too far. Back to the drawing board!
Fredrik,
what do you think about feet made from non-compliant material like wood, brass, stainless steel etc.?
Thanks

Re: Streaming service

Normal Redbook CD albums are disappearing from Tidal. What remains are "MQA" 44.1 (16 bit) albums.

Very sad.

The desktop app is a must, but WiFi into a Macbook Pro with desktop app sounds very good as well.

Fredrik,

congratulations for Giella.

How good is the line out of the final version in comparison to Sagatun Stereo?

Thanks

Re: Any decent streamer?

I have had great results from Sonore’s microRendu, with a linear power supply from Uptone. After having both it and a Majik DS/1 in my system for some time, I found I preferred the microRendu, more toe-tapping and dance-inducing. It is their entry level product. In your system one of their higher-s...

Re: Preamp discussions

macrotech2 wrote: 2020-10-13 09:19 Presumably because of the separated channels and power supplies. How about a dual mono Kikkin then? Would it need two separate boxes for optimum sound quality?
IMO, too complex.
Keep it simple:
One unswitched Input, no remote, no HP output, just optimised for line out.

I plan on recording and comparing the HD+, eX, and Mac mini headphone-out in the future. I will record both GIGAPORT products brand new and broken-in. I will send those recordings via private email to only you as I'm sure no one else on this Forum would be interested.. This must be the silliest thi...

Re: Headphone amp?

Hi Fredrik,

I am really curious how the line out optimised version of Giella compares to your other pre amps.
Please, can you shed some light on this?
Many thanks.

Re: Headphone amp?

If you use only one input, none of that matters. Agree, but what is the advantage for you to have multiple inputs? For best quality you would have to disconnect the inputs you do not use. This is much more inconvenient than to connect the input you actually use. IMO, Fredrik will find the best solu...

Re: Headphone amp?

It is quite clear in the photo shown, at least two more inputs could be offered, probably three; totaling four inputs. My recollection is Fredrik stated his clever technique in the Boazu sounded better than multiple inputs with a switch. Removing the switching headphone jack (no matter how good it ...

Re: Headphone amp?

Would a "Kikkin+" cost more or less than a Giella headphone amp? Why not do like the Boazu and add several inputs with no switching. IIRC, Fredrik mentioned that the multiple inputs of Boazu do sound inferior in comparison to only one input with no switching. Further, IMO, the Giella case seems to ...

lejonklou wrote: 2020-10-10 10:24 What you are asking for, tpetsch and Matt, is a new Kikkin. Right? This time without remote control.
Yes, only one input, no remote, highest SQ for the money.
I never listen to HP, so I think it would be a very interesting byproduct.

But I understand your POV
