Thanks :) HD800 and HD700 are totally different from HD6650/600. I have often thought about the PRO2900 as a T1 with more bass. And the HD800 is like a more open soundint T1. I am gonna do a HD800 and T1 review in not too long a time I hope - maybe I am gonna take you up on that :) I'll at least give them a comparative listen and come back to you ,)

I have no experience with the CS of neither, actually. Both companies do impress me - Schiit for making good stuff at good prices and Audeze for making good stuff with a unique sound (for not that good prices..) Agree on the Audeze cable - it totally ruins the feel of the product.

Sigh... One year ago my currency was 30% stronger against the USD..... Will be exiting to hear some reports about the M9+HE1000 combo- All good things seem to come from China nowadays, so it'll probably be great $)

You can put it that way - by "warmer" in this case I mean gentle but detailed highs and whart I percieve as a very subtle amount of mid-bass presence than Taurus. So it is neutral - but if anything it leans a tad to the darker side, or rather "unbright". I certainly wouldn't call it colored in any way - but all amps is something relative to another, if you know what I mean.

I think the M9 is better. But that doesn't mean that you will ,) At this level, swapping amps are ofte side-grades more than upgrades, if you know what I mean. The M9 is slightly warmer (but still at least as resolving) than the Taurus, and FWIR also compared to the GS-X. The Ragnarok seems to be strikingly similar sounding to the GS-X according to this review. So basically, my impession is that M9 is the slightly warmer sounding of these amps. If that is what you are...

Unfortunately - but I am very eager to give it a listen - it certainly is an interestnin product. You have the Lcd-3 - what is it with the Tauus that makes you want to go for something else?

I've read a comparison somewhere that they are on the same level, but M9 slighlty warmer sounding, GSX "rawer" sounding - if I remember coorect. It is a very neutral and natural sounding amp. I generally think the notion of "wire with gain" is a less useful expression (even though it is widely used) - but I assume you mean "neutral with low disotrion" - which it certainly is.
