Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bravo V1 Headphone AmplifierOut of the box it sounds very good. Swapped out the output caps to 2200 mfd and swapped out the mosfets to IRL510 and WOW! What a difference. No way to beat the value and sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to beat at this $.Get tube sound on the cheapI have the similiar Little Bear brand of this amp but it looks the same. Mine has pre-out for use as a pre-amp, but other than that, they look identical. I'm having fun listening with my he-400's and it sounds great especially in the midrange. Highs have less of that sibilance you get with solid state gear and I find the sound is more natural sounding than my solid state(Yamaha receiver r-v703) with a more forward midrange. The he-400's are a bit dark with recessed upper midrange then peaking around 7-10k so maybe the amp is compensating for that. If you have a good set of headphones, this is worth a try at this price...hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot AmpMy first impression is that this amp is industrial art, you see all the components and there are a couple of colored LEDs that reflect on the clear Plexiglas top. The amp has a burn-in time, other reviews I had come across say it takes 24 hours of play time for the sound characteristics to get established and I’d agree with that.This headphone amp adds a fullness and depth to the sound of your headphones. I’d prefer that the volume control was a little further from the headphone jack, it gets in the way a bit. Don't touch the tube - it's hot (and the oils on your fingers will shorten the life of the tube). The various connections are on three sides of the amp (headphone jack on the front, power on the rear, and sound input on the side).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous little Headphone AmpThis is one nice little amp. There's one adjustment that you need to make before use - especially if it sounds a bit odd out of the box. Check and do the bias adjustment found there. Yes - it works for THIS amp. WAY better sound and easy to do if you have a DVM and a small screwdriver. Mine came with the biases out of whack and sounded terrible. Considered returning it until I did the simple bias adjustment. Then - wow, this sounds good. I run this with a pair of BeyerDynamics 880 (250 Ohm) phones and I'm satisfied. Later maybe I'll change the transistors and MOSFETs but for now I love it. You should know that the heat sinks under the plexiglass will be HOT once the amp is running but it's Class A and it's supposed to do that.

Bravo Audio V1 Mini Valve Deluxe Class A Tube Headphone Amplifier

Does this unit employ an all tube signal path is this one of those transistor or IC amps followed by a starved plate tube circuit used for effect?

Asked by: Gball
Sorry, I meant to ask: Does this unit employ an all tube signal path OR is this one of those transistor or IC amps followed by a starved plate tube circuit used for effect?Thanks! (apparently there is no way to edit your question...that I could find)

I am interested in using one of these tube headphone amps as a pre amp in front of a DBX 223 active crossover driving a pair of Dayton APA 100 amps. Is this an appropriate application? Thanks.

Asked by: flj1
I went ahead and bought the Bravo headphone amp and indeed it works great as a preamp in the system that I have. With the Bravo as a preamp I have the gain levels on the BDX crossover (input and output) and the APA 100 amps all set at about half and use the volume control on the Bravo from zero to about a half or a little less. Prior to installing the Bravo as a preamp the gain levels were significantly higher on the crossover and amps (close to maxed out) and there was not a single volume control knob.I bought the two Dayton amps, the DBX crossover and the Bravo pre amp for about $400 with connectors from Parts Express and have a very flexible and relatively high quality system. It is set up as a "vertical" biamped system with the low and high from each side going through one of the APA 100 amps.

Can I use this to upgrade my sound from my iPad?

Asked by: Hawkfeather
If you wanted to use the headphone output as a line out it will work. I cannot say it will offer any improvements in sound since that is too subjective, but it will likely change the tone due to the tube itself.

hi guys will a sennh amperior 18 omh work with this  20 ohm amp  or should look at another amp?THANKS

I would recommend finding an amplifier that is safely rated down to 18 ohms for your headphones.

Could this amp be used as a tube buffer by using a headphone to RCA adaptor and plugging into the input of a amp?

Asked by: cherico
Absolutely. It would make for a nice line-level tube preamplifier.
