I got a black one, but when I checked out, there was all this verbiage about lead times and everything shipping together at the longest lead time (even though I only ordered one thing), etc… And the lead time was listed as 2-4 weeks. Supposed to be here on Saturday.
Ive seen a couple of those boxes!! Very good. Turnaround for Holo seems to be about 2 weeks or so right now.
Awesome! Mine looks like it’s coming around the same time. Maybe I made the shipping cutoff for the day. Hope you enjoy!
No worries and I agree
That’s a good combo with good synergy. Enjoy.
Thanks. I am very happy about it and use it without any EQ (tried a lot and liked it most with none).
When something’s new I like to spend 40/60 days without EQing in order to understand SQ and FR. Then I eventually apply corrections. Enjoy your stuff.
Any verdict yet on the LTA? What headphones are you using? Thanks. Paul
I’m slowly working my way through a writeup, and hope to have it out by the end of the week. I’m using the Focal Utopia with the MZ3.
Initial impressions, meh. IPhone dongle seems very close. Only used it with the SA6 tho.
Edit: This is now crowned the Dragonfart Red
I have the Black (Red’s little brother).
For what it’s worth, compared to my Dell laptop headphone jack - the improvement is substantial.
I’ll try this one next if any

Edit: I will not try this next. Not messing with the ESS chips. Older S9 had AKM. Will look at the Lotoo Paw S1…
I’ve never had any Sennheiser 500 series item before. They sound pretty great after 5 minutes.
This had some buzz a while back. There was a thread…
May check it out too. Thanks!
Cool. Thanks Andris. I have Utopias (and an old pair of LCD-3s - too heavy) and some nice Grados. Never used a dedicated headphone amp, just direct from DAC or from headphone output on my Rogers amp. The LTA folks are 10 miles from me so I would love to be a customer.
Mostly listen to classical and a mix of vocals and classic rock. Some jazz.
I see the packaging hasn’t changed at all since I bought them in late 2019. Do they still ship with the 3.5mm cable?
58X is the reason I never bought Porta Pros.
It came with 3.5mm cable and a snap on 1/4" adapter installed. The cable is about 6’ long. The build quality is fully equal to my retail HD-600. Its sound quality on a good setup is superior to the HD-600 on a bad setup. The high end is rougher than the HD-600, with less subtlety, less extended bass, and less air.
I’ll put on a balanced cable and say more in a Sennheiser thread.
