Sweet and punchy sound

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.

Amazing Amp

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 !

A thing of beauty

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!!

I'm excited about listening to music again.

I tried to purchase the rebel amp and I saw there was no shipping to where I live. Then Yurii from rebel audio sent me an email asking the reason why i didn't finish the check out: they found a way to send it to me. Marvelous customer service!

The SOUND I get from every pair of headphones I own is exciting and different. There are details in music I never noticed before. Many years passed when I couldn't find pleasure in listening to music: it was a dull experience. Well, I'm excited about listening to music again. I get those long forgotten goosebumps from the rebel amp!

Thank you, rebel audio.
