View Full Discussion I've got the regular HA-P50. I also have the top of the line HA-P5, as seen here:
While the regular HA-P50 is proficient and sounds good, I find it lacks a little soul. It's got good sound, but it doesn't sound supple or emotive enough to me.
The HA-P5, in contrast, is on another level. But in addition to the better DAC, I think part of the great sound is the contribution of the OPA1602 opamp. Very musical and open sounding.
The HA-50SE offered here also uses the superior OPA1602, so I'm expecting that it will there will be a good bump in musicality over the regular HA-P50. So I'm on board for this one.
I think if we can get enough folks on board to bring it down to the lowest drop point, it will be a great price for a very good sounding portable DAC/amp.
I'm using mine for IEM's and portable headphones (nothing super demanding), and find that it works great. Let's see if we can get it done.
