Good, simple amp ; watch out for thick RCA connectors
Boris I., 30.07.2020
Sounds good with a pair of HD600 as well as a variety of other low-impedance headphones - even IEMs.
As written in other reviews on the web there's *zero* hiss even at full volume (gain set at 8dB) , which is great because I bought this amp to replace a Graham Slee Novo that had very noticeable noise with low-impedance headphones (even at min. volume and no source connected) that it made listening to music with silence parts unpleasant.
Dropping one star for quality though because while the unit is built like a tank, the enclosure's RCA holes are off-center with the connectors soldered on the PCB: so when using thicker connectors (be them molded plastic, gold-plated conical or whatever), the PCB's RCA connectors are "forced" to align with the enclosure's off-center holes, resulting in a significant amount of mechanical stress on the PCB's connectors.
I emailed the guys at Lake people about that, they don't really seem to bother, so just pay attention to use straight, thin connectors (eg. the Cordial CFU 1.5 CC).

Quality headphone amp
125000, 18.02.2018
There isn't much to say about this headphone amp, it can drive almost all.. if not all headphones. There is no distortion or something of the sort.
The only con. that I can think of is the price, which is fairly high compared to other preamps like the magni 3. But it delivers more power at higher impedance's which is always nice.

Superb entry level headphone amp - paired with T90
23.09.2015
Superb entry level headphone amp with very high quality build and finish. Paired on my side with Beyerdynamic T90 and it sound marvelous - neutral and spacious with no signs of noise or potentiometer crackling sounds. Here is my initial review about it: http://www.head-fi.org/t/607079/beyerdynamic-t90-d/3315#post_11935343

Super KHV, aber...
bass-o-mat, 14.03.2016
Ich habe mir vor kurzen einen neuen Kopfhörer zugelegt. Nach einer langer Suche war es ein AKG K-612 Pro, der gegen AKG K-712 Pro, Shure SRH940 und Focal Spirit Professional gewonnen hat. Nun, dachte ich, es wäre an der Zeit, auch in Sachen KHV ein Update zu machen. Bisher habe ich den Presonus HP4 benutzt. Vier einzeln regelbare Ausgänge, ca. 100¤. Abgesehen davon, dass er nach ca. 12 Uhr Potistellung nicht mehr lauter wird (was nur bei sehr hochohmigen KH problematisch ist, nicht aber bei AKG 612), gibt es nichts zu meckern. Aber ich dachte, es geht noch besser. Dazu habe ich zwei KHV von Lake People bestellt: ein G109-A und ein G103-S. Um die Sache kurz zu machen - es gibt de facto keine hörbaren Unterschiede zwischen meinem Presonus und den beiden Lake People. Warum "de facto"? Denn in einem Punkt haben sie sich leicht unterschieden - die Stereibreite. Der Presonus spielt breiter, LP schmaler. Das konnte ich aber nur mit einer ganz bestimmter Musik raushören, nämlich Solostimme oder Soloinstrument (habe Cello-Suiten von Bach benutzt). Der Unterschied ist extrem klein und in einem Blindtest nur bei extrem konzentriertern Hören feststellbar und nur, wenn die Umschaltung in einem Bruchteil der Sekunnde erfolgt. Dazu braucht man natürlich einen entsprechenden Schalter. Das Umkabeln dauert schon so lang, dass der Mensch sich diese minimale Nuance nicht merken kann.
Bei allen anderen Musik habe ich rein gar kein Unterschied gehört. Genauso wenig zwischen den beiden Lake People Modellen. Meine Tests habe ich mit zwei anderen Kopfhörer wiederholt.

Für mich gab es ein klares Fazit - diese minimale Nuance bei der Stereobreite, die nur bei ganz bestimmten Musik überhaupt feststellbar ist, rechtfertig die 410¤ nicht. Auch die 230¤ für den kleineren G103-S nicht. Sie mussten beide gehen und ich bleibe bei dem Presonus. Eine sehr gute Qualität muss scheinbar nicht viel Geld kosten.
