    This is a very good portable amp for full-sized headphones, tried it with the HD650 and was very pleased. You cannot even get them new anymore as Neco has closed sales for the time being.

    Simple circuit + battery power = clean, dynamic and resolving (as far as op-amps go).

    This thing is FAST. Faster than a stock Mjolnir 2. I found it pretty engaging with the TH900. It has a really nice warm and smooth character, a bit too smooth really, but it’s a fair tradeoff. I was less enamoured with it on the Senns.

    I do feel the Fulla 2 changes the value proposition of every other portable a bit, but the Neco V5 is a great amp and fairly unique for a portable in having a current-feedback topology. Definitely a worthy purchase, and the batteries can be found on ebay if needed.

    If it's still available I'll take it. Like having a lot of portable amps on hand for comparisons. Will add to triad l3 lion, pico power, leck, glacier, and Alo rx collection.
