  • Summary: I recently took delivery of the TEAC HA-501.  After giving it a good workout, I am happy to share my impressions about it.   TL;DR   This is one impressive amplifier.  It has clean, refined power.  It is very musical with a hint of warmness and smoothness, while retaining a high level of detail.  It is very transparent and essentially disappears from the chain.  Highly recommended.
  • Pros: Transparent and controlled; disappears from the chain
  • Cons: Use of op amps might turn some people off

  • Summary: Sorry for the length of this review but I want to include a bit of "back story" for the uninitiated. Please skip down a few paragraphs to get to the meat of the matter! Cheers! **** edit 6/4/13 Pairing this amp with HiFiMan's HE-500's is a match made in heaven! I have the damping set to the notch between "High" and 'Medium" and they just SING!! **** edit 5/11/14 I recently purchased the Beyer T-90's and the TEAC let's it sound it's best which is GREAT by the way.

  • Excerpt: Использую этот усилитель уже месяц.Доволен очень.Причем он работает и как предусилитель для TEAC AX-501.Источник подключен по балансной схеме.Звуковая сцена правильная,без лишних красок.Бас точен,верхние не задирает.Наушники-Сенхи 650.Не понравилось только то,что нормальную громкость для комфортной прослушки развивает на 70-80 процентах раскрутки регулятора.А это очень не хорошо.Но к качеству звука претензий нет вообще.Рекомендую.
  • Pros: Великолепный звук,внешний вид,возможность подстраивать демпинг фактор,работа в качестве предварительного усилителя.
  • Cons: 300 омные Sennheiser 650 раскачивает только при 70 % поворота регулятора громкости.
