    May we know if Portaphile has a Facebook for follow on the updates instead of doing a regular check for updates on this site?

      Hi Anthony, our facebook page is down right now and I don’t have a definite date as to when it will be back up. I will keep you posted when I get it back up. Thanks for checking in on us!

    Is the Shohin going to be better than 627x or not? I am thinking if I should get the 627x now or wait for the Shohin? Thanks,

      Hi Ricky, that’s a great question and one that I have been getting asked quite a bit lately. The answer is, there really isn’t a “best” amp from my line-up. The Shohin is designed to be a bit different sounding the other two amps MICRO/627X so it really isn’t a one size fits all “better” in any of my amps. When looking at which amp to get, I would simply say this: The MICRO/627X are the more lush smooth amps of the three, the Shohin has been designed to appeal to those looking for a bit more of aggressive sound signature than the the ultra smooth MICRO/627X. If you want to get the lush mids usually associated with high end tube gear but don’t care about battery life, go with the MICRO if you want that sound signature but with longer battery life go with the 627X. A bit more edge without sacrificing much in smooth mids, go with the Shohin.
