Best buy, "End Game" amplifier.
gipsy1, 21.03.2015
Hpa V281 from Violectric is amazing amplifier for almost any type of headphones on this earth.
Only exception will be electrostatic headphones like STAX which anyway needs different type of amplifier to drive it.

I got mine only because I had option "30 days money back" as with all things from Thomann, so I was feeling save for such expensive piece of audio equipment to be able to step back and return it if I decide it cost too much.

After first week and app 20 hours of listening I was sold to it, but I was still fooling my self that I will return it as it cost a lot but when time comes to send it back I was ready to sell my bellowed Cannondale but keep V281 instead.

I test it with my LCD-X from Audeze, AKG K702, Sennheiser HD 600 in balanced and single ended mode and with my Beyerdynamic T51p in SE mode.
Most difference for me between balanced and SE mode is noticeable in bass area.
In balanced mode bass is tighter, faster and stronger, not louder just better and more fun to listen.
It makes any of above headphones really give 100% comparing to my other headphone amps like Asus Essence One and Meier Audio Corda where that number will be more like 80% for my ears even above headphones are mostly easy to drive and not in need for strong amps their profit from authority from V281.
Design wise, I find face plate on V281 to be perfect, form factor perfect for my desk and nice stand for my desktop speakers. As per manufacture advice there is no problem in covering it from above or sides as it never gets hot and it has vent ports on back.
They (Violectric) advice me that there is even no problem on disconcerting it from power without switching it off as I use Master/Slave power distributor which turns everything off when my PC(master) goes to sleep.

Feature wise I would like option to dim LED lights and extra light around female 4 pin XLR connector for easy plugging in dark and luminous positioner on volume knob.
All in all as someone said "END GAME" headphone amp.

Extraordinary Headphone amp Nirvana for your ears
06.05.2016
Very neutral sound full of life and detail it lets you hear everything in the music and does not add any colouration to the original signal. Fantastic separation of instrumental textures all most valve like in its sound and build like a tank you will never need another headphone amp drives my Beyerdynamic t1 2nd headphones like a dream buy one you will not regret it.
