Great headphone amp and pre-amp for powered speakers

I got this in conjunction with the smsl su-6, it runs my Beyerdynamic DT 990 pros at 240ohms super easily, also works beautifully as a pre-amp to my powered speakers.

We're really happy that you have such great thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!

Unbelievably very Good sounding Amplifer

Just one word, I love this amplifer, I first stacked it up with Topping E30 it was perfect match for my sennheiser H650, OMG the vocals was so clear, rich,full of texture & details, I was blown away, it has wide sound stage and each instruments in thier places shined without any distortion whatsoever. I fell in love, I tell you, it will drown you in music, it will be very hard for you to remove your headphone. I also have Topping D70's Dac stacked up with Drop THX AAA 789 very linear transperent amplifer, (these are expensive ones) but I was pleasntly suprised, that S.M.S.L SH-6 stacked up with Topping E30 is very close in performance with D70's and THX 789. I also used Hifiman Sundaras, Sennheiser HD560s, Hifman 400i, Drop Sennheiser HD58X and IEM Moondrop Kanas pro. (whatever I threw at SH-6 it handled with with grace. I've beening enjoying this little amp for few months now, and I strongly recomended it. once again thanks Heaphone Zone for brining these excellent products to India, at reasonable prices. Much grateful for your service.

Thank you for your accurate feedback on this product, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product.

VFM Headphone amplifier

SH-6 is a no frills product which does its job admirably. Along with its sturdy build quality, it has a very clean and revealing delivery with any headphone. The power delivery is consistent across the spectrum and there is hardly any distortion. The lack of a balanced output may be a sore point, but at its price point it may be nit-picking, as speaker pre-outs are a nice bonus. Overall, its a good amplifier for a bargain.

Hey there, thank you for the great review and ratings! So delighted that you are loving your purchase. Hope you had a comfortable shopping experience. Cheers!
