20-In-1: GoVibe Multi-Amp
Ten amps packed into one gigantic amp that measures 98.5cm X 13cm x 5cm! Govibe has really done it this time with the Multi-Amp, designed solely for headphone comparisons, as up to 20 headphones can be plugged in and running simultaneously from one source. Each of the ten amps come with their own on/off switch and a volume control, so you can use an SPL meter to fine tune each headphones’ loudness level to identical levels.
The Multi-amp runs on a 24V PSU. While I won’t be using the amp to drive a Hifiman HE-6, it drove anything from a Hifiman HE-400, a Beyerdynamic T1, and a Sennheiser HD800 just fine. Too bad that the PSU I have for it is only rated at 0.8 Amperes, so I’m not going to attempt some crazy all 10 channels firing simultaneously.
Fancy one? Too bad the Multi-amp is not for sale. I’m not sure how many of these Multi-Amps Jaben has, but from what I’ve heard only Jaben Indonesia has it. We just happen to be lucky enough to have this amp available for us to borrow. It would make for an awesome amp to carry into headphone meets.
