Any update on the delivery of this amp? I just got a notice that it is delayed.

Power ratings compared. The V550 is more powerful at 50 ohms and 32 ohms. In the last several years the trend of headphone manufacturers has been low impedance drivers. The V550 design maximizes power output to optimize performance for current model headphones.

Got in on Drop. I think the V281 had a special thing going with Sennheiser headphones. Who seems to have a thing about 600 ohms. I do need a favor tho. January 3rd or 4th would you please drop Fried a line stating OffRamp bought this amp. I have to contact him on the 4th as he and I discussed about a build up.

2,500 for what essentially is a downgraded V281. Hard Pass.

Thanks for the manual, I read it and have read 2 reviews. This amp has the flexibility I’m looking for and the design and forethought is impeccable. I’ll be joining the drop within the specified time limits.

This is the model everyone has been waiting for! The V550 is the true replacement for the legendary V281. It is indeed a V590 minus the DAC. These new models benefit from the technology of the Niimbus. An evolution of design from many years of experience.

Will there be a matching DAC that will be released? Any plans to drop the V590? Thanks.

No plans for the V590 on Drop. A matching DAC? Not yet. Stay tuned. :)

Can this really hit 6,400 dB? This seems unsafe for the universe.

It does emit tachyons but so far it has not effected the space time continuum.

If the sound hits that level he'd be dead for hours before you can even hear it :p

I'd love to purchase this, but I am slightly concerned about the possibility of ripping a hole in the fabric of spacetime if I turn it up too loud? Please could you confirm that its safe? https://i.imgur.com/S7rNLtn.png

As noted above is does emit tachyons but so far it has not effected the space time continuum so we are fairly certain the fabric of spacetime is safe for now. However, please be aware it could cause a warp core breach if your power conditioner is low on dilithium crystals.

Thanks for getting back I have their niimbus us4 and it is superb. I have read opinions of the v590 from owners of the amp and they are happy with that one. The V590 has an rrp of $3500 so being able to pick up (somewhat) the amp only at $2500 seems well priced to me. But I understand audio preferences are subjective. How have you found the niimbus or v580 or even the v281 when you heard any of those? Please also share what you thought of the manley amp too from when you heard it as I have no opinion on that one as I have never heard it. (Apologies for any incorrect assumptions I may have made in this paragraph above) All the best

what is the volume control in this amp ? dont tell me its an Alps pot ?
(Edited)
Your attention to detail is lacking, the user asked for the Pro upgrade which is an upgrade to the existing volume solution, not adding a volume knob. I pointed out your purchase history because that's the real starter pack, 99/100 times the people posting "what this is ludicrous" in Audiophile match your patterns. It's just kind of funny given your choices that you at all feel the need to judge others. Gonna Mark Twain right out of this conversation.

If you're looking for class A headphone amp Flux is probably a safe bet, my FA-12 Balanced Class-A Head-Amplifier have no problem powering my Beyerdynamic dt 880 600 ohm on high gain heres a link https://fluxlab-acoustics.com/category/products/ Keep in mind, I'm not an expert, if you're unsure about buying them z reviews have reviewed them heres a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSD2rofHjMw and you can probably find other reviews of them

I was asking mainly just cause I was curious about the unit, and it wasnt stated anywhere. I already have a flux fa10, and a class A diy SS amp. Not looking to buy a violectric atm, but always liked their stuff.
