Why choose RebelAmp?
RebelAmp _(Z Reviews)_ Love Letter to Class-A💗
It makes all my headphones sound pretty!
RebelAmp is fantastic and should be a top pick
Sounds excellent with my Focal Elex. Lots of power and nice tonality. Very detailed and neutral sound but with excellent dynamics. Very will built with an excellent potentiometer. Thats important because every THX amp that i owned (4 units) had horrible pots that became extremely noisy after 4 months of ussge and were returned.
Rebel uses top quality components. Also a ton of head way wth regard to power. Don't let that 1 watt rating fool you. This is a "Class A" type amp.
My favorite amplifier I’ve ever used
So smooth! I just want more and more.
After a week of ownership, this amp still leaves me in awe with how much my 6XX scales with it. The discrepancy in dynamics and resolving capabilities coming from my Schiit Magni 3+ is pretty HUGE, also improvement to other intangibles like staging and imaging as well. The Rebel displays a touch of warmth in the low end and provides my Sennheisers some rumble on bass heavy tracks. I was on the fence on spending more money on my source gear than my headphones, but I am glad I did it with the RebelAmp.
This amp sounds amazing! And is built like a tank.
Would recommend this amp to anyone
The RebelAmp delivers everything I want from a solid state headphone amp. It's heavily overbuilt, has enough power for my dynamic and planar headphones, and allows my headphones reach their maximum potential. This is a solid state amp, so it doesn't color, distort, or transform the source -- you may or may not like the inherent character of your headphones (but don't blame the RebelAmp). What sets this product apart from some "analytical" amps is its on-demand punch, quickness, and smooth delivery. Forget the solid state stereotypes, as the RebelAmp takes away harshness and sharp edges without losing details. I give the RebelAmp my highest recommendation. It's great for ordinary listening, and a great partner for a tube amp. Go green!
Using this amp immediately made me understand all the comments I heard/read about it having a Class A Warmth, it gives almost an analog sound to music. I also use it as a pre-amp for my active speakers, and it works really well. I definitely recommend it!
I hope we can see more 'green' HiFi products coming out of Ukraine in the future!!
(definitely pick the Green option btw, its beautiful)
RebelAmp - class A headphone amplifier & preamp
Sounds fantastic, coming from my thx amp it sounds like I’m listening to music again. However it is definitely comparatively lacking in soundstage and clarity. But it’s so smooth and well worth the trade off.
It gives me a warm feeling, on these cold streaming streets
This amp is made in haven. Wide, creamy yet detailed, it is a pleasure to use. It works great with both dynamics and planar headphones; works very well with HD 600, T50 and even Arya sound good. Does it power Arya to their full potential? No, you will need a Master 9 or Phonitor XE for that, but for 25% of that price you get a really good sound. This is a must have for everyone who enjoys music. It totally fixed Zen Dac bright sound and and also improved WA-6SE tube amp when used as pre between Zend Dac and WA-6SE. As a side note I do believe it is a small change when you max out Rebel Amp and use the pre from Zen DAC. To me it sounds like it takes away that creamy sound, and push a little bit more texture. Sounds very good ether way, you can pick and choose whatever sound you prefer.
I was pleasantly surprised how good and musical this amplifier sounds with every headphones I own!
RebelAmp has lively, punchy sound and nice sweetness in every frequency. It has good soundstage and layering, and it doesn't hide any detail in music. The treble overall has nice spark, but it is easy to listen. The bass is warm, but luckily not too warm or muddy. With my Zmf Verite C the bass sounds big and a lot more detailed than with my Garage1217 Project Polaris or Tor Audio Roger. I think the pairing with Verite C is excellent and I keep getting goosebumps. Audeze LCD-2 Classic works well too and RebelAmp finally woke up the bass in my Dan Clark Audio Aeon 2 Closed. I couldn't be happier!
My B-stock unit was pretty much flawless (meaning I didn't find any reason why it was sold as B-stock). The build quality is great and I must also give some praise for the smooooth volume knob. :) All the positive reviews here are well justified.
This amplifier sounds great it is spacious with good width, depth and gives good punch as well, my HD 6XX, and HD 660S never sounded better. It has enough power and it feels much more powerful than its specification. It drives Fostex TR50s without problem. It is loud enough with HD 6XX on Medium gain @ 50% volume. I am using it with Ifi NEO iDSD as DAC but sounds great with Fiio M11 and JDS Element II as well. It is very enjoyable and musical and I prefer it over Topping A90 which sounds very narrow in comparision to Rebelamp. I am happy that they decide to go with bit unual colour but I really like it. Thanks guys for this great looking and even better sounding product !
Sounds Amazing, and It will power everything from my IEMs to my Argons with out any problems.
Just received this, and I am very impressed! Coming from a Gilmore Lite mk2 (with the new Golden Reference Power Supply), this thing ticks all the boxes the mk2 couldn’t. First of all, the RebelAmp is warm while the Gilmore Lite mk2 is dark (“warm" here meaning more of a full, rich sound, “dark” meaning dampened or rolled off in the highs), its soundstage is wide open and clear while the mk2 is more closed off and aggressive, has more of a bass "bloom" rather than the mk2’s bass kick and sub-bass impact, but most importantly, it has this incredible sense of dynamic range that makes the music sound completely free and lifelike, while the mk2 is just compressed in comparison.
I’ve literally only been listening for a few minutes, but had to submit a review because this thing is blowing my mind. Trust the reviews! If you are familiar with even higher-end amps, I can’t comment. But as far as a step up (or even side-step) this is really an incredible experience. Finally I don’t need my tube amp to actually ENJOY the music. Thanks Yurii!!
