Great when it works...
 
Bought this to use at work and home. Works great at work, but can not get my PC at home to recognize it. If it would just work, it would be 5 stars...

The Wow factor I was looking for...
 
I am a fanatic when listening to classical, jazz and other "milder" vocals. I want to hear every aspect of the music and portables such as my iPhone and iPad do not provide that quality sound. The PHA-2 is a perfect complement for my Bowers & Wilkins P7.

Wonderful unit spoiled by less than 4-1/2 hours DAC/amp battery life...
 
After using the Sony PHA-2 for over 6 months, i felt it was time to speak up. I really want to love the amp, but two issues keep interfering. 1. The amp cannot be charged while being used, a real design flaw in my estimation. (Compare with any of the Fiio amps at any price). But worse, the battery fife of the unit when used as a DAC/amp is just terrible. I recently conducted an experiment to come up with a number.I charged up the PHA-2 [using the Sony recommended charger] and my iPod Classic to ...

Great sound quality and top notch construction
 
Great sound quality and top notch construction, although the battery life could be better. I've used this with ACS T1 custom IEMs and Audeze LCD-X headphones.

Very good but can be better with a longer battery life
 
My first amplifier and very good to use. Can drive most of my headphones well. And it looks really cool.

Nicely made, a bit under powered
 
Nicely made, a bit under powered, needs optical input, expensive but nice to see Sony quality manufacturing of old returning.

First Generation DAC from Sony
 
I love this amplifier. I purchased it used, but it performs as if it were brand new. A DAC that provides digital to analog conversion and amplification on lossless formats as well as DSD. A great deal at a good prices. I would purchase from this vendor again.

Crisp! Clean! Wonderful!
 
Did not really think this would be worth the $. There could not be that much difference could there? Yes there is! My first listen was to Hillary Hahn's performance of Bach- Concerto for Violin, Strings and Continuo in E major-1.Allegro. The muddiness was gone! Crisp, beautiful. Second listen was Keith Jarrett's Bregenz, May 28, 1981 Part I. Again the crisp clean sound is.....crisp clean! Oh well I guess this won't be going back!

Rugged Worthy Road Warrior
 
This will be quick and to the point. For a rugged portable that is idevice compatible for under 600 bucks this is the best. I looked into the Other major players such as Nuforce. Fostex, CEntrance, beyerdynamic, cypher,Fiio, and others and this rates out quite well. Built like a tank well designed with excellent sonic specs and qualities. I also used the line out pair with my Rudistor NX-02 and the DAC performed well. Long battery life and the lithium battery is replaceable. The negatives is the...
