Hi

Got this one yesterday from Nobsound. Sound is good and it has plenty of power for a portable 450mW, not much difference between balance and regular output. Battery should last a bit more than 4hrs.

I do like the DIY look it has and it also looks like a flask. Is all metal case looks like aluminum.

It has two mini RAYTHEON JAN5899 tubes. They only act as a buffer. Cool thing is you can swap OP Amp if you want to. This will be a good companion for my travels.

    Very cool! I've been wanting to pick one of those up for portable use. I hear they sound really nice and actually sound "tubey".

    So far I like the sound. I will get some distortion if going too loud but that is on the IEM 425 and Marshalls those are 22ohm and 32ohm. Have not try yet the HD650 or the Meze.

    But for $99.00 is not bad and I am sure will be a conversation piece at any airport bar or for TSA thinking I have a flask in my bag. The non-balance is only $69.00
