Client reports on his new Icon Audio HP8 MKII Signature Headphone Tube Amplifier

• My word! What a job HP8 does with the DT! Ambience, clarity, dynamics, ease, evenness, focus, heft, openness…..power to spare. With the high impedance setting, the volume knob does not get past ‘eleven o’clock’. Even the Woo WA2 (OTL) has to have a ‘later’ volume setting. Plus, the bass reproduction from HP8 runs more deeply and tightly than that from WA2.

• In sum, I am enthralled that HP8 can ‘coax’ this level of sonic performance from such a ‘recalcitrant’ headphone. ZMFs should be real treats with HP8……
