    Wondering about pre amp clipping?

    I didn't have to write to Nuprime weirdly enough it was posted on the box but not in the manual apparently its 6 volts output no wonder it was clipping considering 6 volts is also comfortably above balanced output which i believe is 4 volts? which is the standard in all professional audio...

    Thoughts on the NuPrime HPA-9

    Here comes another post about the Nuprime 9 this time i took a more detailed look at the volume control how it performs across the range channel imbalance at lower gain how does it perform with more sensitive headphones versus harder to drive ones There are " only " two gain settings low and...

    Wondering about pre amp clipping?

    So if my dac.. my source... has enough output to feed my speakers i dont really need to use a pre amp is that correct? i could just use the volume control on my speakers or on my amplifier instead and they will perform the same?

    Could an active pre amp color the sound in any way compared to lets say a passive pre amp or just plugging a dac straight into my speakers?

    Thoughts on the NuPrime HPA-9

    I would be disappointed if the 9 sounded just like the x7s depending on my mood i can now listen to music in two completely different ways and i do listen to a lot of classical music as well and i cant think of any better way than to listen to that on my Nuprime :) It is amazing how much detail...

    Wondering about purchasing a hybrid amplifier

    Thoughts on the NuPrime HPA-9

    Ahaha it sounds like any other amp ;) i will play though here are some impressions trying to avoid as much " audiophile" lingo as possible The hpa9 sounds more spacious according to me the sound goes outside of the ear cups while on my Aune x7s the sound stays inside them much better feeling...
