This was my first amp I used for headphones back when the X00's were my only cans. I can confirm that the sound sync issue that everyone else has does in-fact exist. I get this with both USB and Optical. What's weird is if I closed a browser and open it again everything is synced fine. I eventually got the ZMF Eikon's to replace the X00's and felt that this amp wasn't really doing it justice, so I got the Audio-GD NFB11.28 and couldn't have been happier. Then just recently my NFB had to be sent back for repairs. I've had to go back to this amp, and while the sound sync issue is still present there is also a few other things that have started happening.
  1. While increasing the volume (or decreasing, for that matter) the volume will randomly jump around and at times go so loud that i've had to resort to changing the volume away from my ears.
  2. When listening to music the volume will increase and decrease by itself. I've heard this can be from loose cables, but all the cables are firmly secure.
  3. Listening to anything loud - highs in particular - will cause a very persistent and constant crackle sound. Again, I checked all cables and everything is in firmly.
I can't really say that I got unlucky with my unit because all these things have been mentioned by others before. It really disappoints me to say, but I can't wait to get my NFB back so I can throw this thing away for good.

The volume jumps for no reason, to superloud. Sometimes I need to tap on the volume knob to get volume back to normal.

I've had this issue before. Have you checked the speaker connections on the back of the amp?

Mine died recently (had it almost 1 year), looking for a good replacement that is similarly sized (Under 10" wide and deep). I got the speakers that come with it and want to keep using those. And have a 6XX headphones.

Certainly better looking than most of the similar stuff offered lately (especially the Toping stuff), and really, when you get right down to it, aren't good looks the key to a good sound system?

Careful with buying this. Lots of people have had theirs go out on them, including me. Volume nob tends to break. On my end, unless I turn up the speakers to a very loud setting, I only hear sound out of the right speaker.

I'd recommend the Emotiva A-100 with a Chromecast Audio (or other external DAC) for just a few more dollars if the DAC section isn't of big use to you. The A-100 is more powerful on both the speaker amp and the headphone amp section.

If only the Emotiva had an optical input...

I am very interested in this DAC, especially after watching the review by zreviews on youtube. I think I'm going to pass on purchasing this particular item, it seems everywhere I go everyone is complaining about the same issue which is the volume issue. Shame it looks like a nice unit.

I bought this amp the last time it dropped. My amp works great. (Knock on wood) It sounds great with a small pair of Paradigm speakers.

I submitted a ticket on their website and they never responded. I gave them a call, and the guy said he'd call me back (I never heard back from them). So... I don't think they're too worried about it. lol.

I bought some excellent high end audiophile products from Teac back in the 70's and 80's. I had a reel to reel tape deck that worked flawlessly for 25 years and the company was always forward thinking about customer service . It's a shame they are just another faceless company now.

Just came here to say that I'm having the same volume issues that everyone else is having (volume randomly shoots to full blast, or jumps all over the place). Best just to avoid it unless you're able to replace the pointometer yourself.
Edit: Why have 9 people purchased this? It is a product that is known to be faulty, and it comes with no warranty.

Sorry should've clarified-headphones up to 300 ohms. I'd prefer a single unit over a Schiit Magni/Modi combo. Thanks.

The TEAC is more of a speaker amp than a headphone amp. Even the Shiit Fulla 2 would probably be better than these for headphones, but if you can afford it the Magni/Modi combo would be much better.
