To everyone who owns an MP-301 or to anyone hesitating because of that background buzz issue; you must absolutely order the 20$ 75-ohm adapter that Garry sells in the "cables" section of the Musical Paradise website.
I just plugged mine in the MP301 mk3 original 2012 version with my 38 ohm ATH-M50 and behold... noise/hum is totally gone ! only pure music to my ears ! fantastic...
Please note however that the adapter is female 3.5mm and then male 6.5mm, so your headphones...
I just discovered the KEF M500. Although it's "on-ear", not closed. People seem to like it. Reviews are very positive.
would that one be a significant step up from my ATH-M50s ?
BTW; i tried the Sennheiser Momentum, but i didn't feel it sounded much better than the ATH-M50s. They just more costly, more compact and prettier.
Thanks for the thread. So, are you happy with this unit? Any hum, or other issues ?
I already have a Musical Paradise MP-301MK3 at my office, but its quite bulky. I just want something smaller with the same audio qualities... There's the Aune T1, but what about this Fabriziolo ?
I recently got the Aune X1 mk2 DAC and am using it to send the analog line out to another vacuum tube amp; the Musical Paradise MP-301 mk3 with shuguang 6L6GC tubes. Problem is this is at the office and the MP-301 takes up too much space and i cannot use it to drive speakers, just my headphones (ATH-M50s). So now i'm thinking of bringing home the MP-301, to drive speakers mainly, and to get a more compact tube amp... this Aune T1 !
The headphone output on the Aune X1 works...
