The RebelAMP is a great amp around this price point. shipping were a little high but its UPS. sound very good and the design is really nice. When I'm using high gain and volume above 60% in the pc the bass sound is flicking and sound bad although you don't need to listen to more 40% on high gain. I only wish they would do a balanced version.
My setup: Hd660's, SoundBlaster g6 DAC (I'm getting a new one soon). I listened to music on Tidal via my pc.
I find myself wanting to try all of my headphones on this amp so I can see how it enhances them in different ways. I'm no audio guru but I must say that it sounds clean but with a nice cozy jacket. It is not warm like tubes or clean like a AAA 789. It is in a wonderful middle area. I enjoy it for gaming and music. Excellent amp!
Simply love it. Hooked it up with my DT1990. Mind was blown! I'm not an expert, just a fan.
Bought this out of curiosity after hearing it’s basically a dual rail version of the legendary AMB M3 amp. This is prob the best amp I’ve heard under $1k. It leans a bit towards the brighter side of neutral so I paired it with a vintage theta progeny dac to add a little more bass heft. Soundstage is decent for a solid state, but the best thing about this amp is definitely how dynamic this thing is. Macro and micro dynamics are outstanding, especially at this price point. Compared to my ragnarok 2, rebel amp is lacking the bass slam the former has, but I’m hearing things in the recording I wasn’t hearing before with the rag 2. This amp is definitely staying in the collection.
Build quality is great, although slightly large. Power button is on the back, so there may be some issues with turning it on and off if you place it in a rack. The knob is superb, no scratchiness at all, very satisfying to roll.Rebel just sounds a “musical” to my ears with a little warmth and tight bass,and smooth delivery. The RebelAmp takes away harshness and sharp edges without losing details. With 1W of Class A power, it powers 99% of headphones out there, other than the rare exception such as the HE6. Overall after some burn in, it's been a great experience, for $500 it punches way above its price range and I would recommend it to anyone that wants a great amp that doesn't break the bank.
