4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic headphone amplifier for a bargain price-but unreliable, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BRAVO Audio V1 Valve Class A Tube Headphone Amplifier preamp Audio amp&Russia... (Electronics)
This is a bargain price, real Hi-Fi quality headphone amplifier.
Took some 10-12 days to arrive, but shipping was free of charge (no complaints, then).

Well built, and the most incredible high quality sound.

Mid, bass, treble, headroom, stereo image, ambience and POWER, all aplenty. Sweet, sweet musical sound, played by a tube.
Incredibly good for the price.

I have 2 other heaphone amplifiers, 5 times more expensive, that do not come anywhere close to this one in absolute terms (one is the Rega Ear)... The Bravo Audio V1 is Hi-Fi and the others are not, in comparison.

4 weeks later FOLLOW-UP: Truly unbelievable performance and incredible synergy with Grado SR325is headphones. Compared with my high-end system ($100.000+) this amplifier rocks. It's that good, specially for the TONE of the instruments. Gets you hooked really fast. For 50 pounds? An all time bargain!!!

8 weeks later: the amplifier failed, and stopped working, not even the lights turn on (it's not the power supply). I returned it to the source, but since it's in China it takes a really long time to get there (3 weeks later I am still waiting for it to arrive to CN). Major inconvenience. But still, the sound of the aplifier, WHEN it worked, was absolutely magnificent!!! I am degrading the rate to 4 stars due to poor reliability. In the meantime I also purchased the Bravo Ocean, with the 12AU7 tube and it doesn't sound as good. The V1 is still the BEST sounding, by far.
