Meier Audio Corda Classic

Meier Audio Corda Classic

“Hello all. This is my first review and I want to tell you about this fantastic headamp.   A view months back I bought an Audio Technica W1000 (not X !) headphone.   I like it’s sound; very transparent, a  little bright, certainly not dark, a sweet rolled off treble and a very tight, but not to  much bass.  And most of all; very involving.  It has something...” --ReneNetherlands

Meier Audio Concerto

Meier Audio Concerto

“ Overture The Concerto, the newest amp from Meier Audio, is essentially equivalent to the top Meier, the Symphony, with a less features and a few tweaks. As such, it employs Meier’s Active Balanced Ground topology, and includes his famous Crossfeed image enhancer (which is supposed to be improved from the Symphony, and as always is defeatable), and a gain switch. That’s it for “features” –...” --Skylab

Meier Audio Corda JAZZ

Meier Audio Corda JAZZ

“I agree with pretty much everything the other reviews said, so I'll add how this compares to my Headroom Maxed Out Home (MOH).   First, a little on the MOH I'm comparing with the Jazz. The MOH is a great amp: toroidal power supply, OPA627s biased class A, quiet background (high S/N ratio), linear, neutral sound. Power limited to about 250 mW and 250 mA which is plenty to drive just about...” --MRC001

Emotiva mini-X a-100

“This review is based on matching the Mini X with Hifiman He-500 Headphones.     You may be reading this review, unsure what to make of this Amp, asking how can a cheap sub $200 amp offer the power needed for an expensive Headphone such as the Hifiman He-500?  If you have done your homework you will find this is the stereo amp everybody is...” --fluidz

Meier Audio Stepdance

Meier Audio Stepdance

“ REVIEW: Meier Audio Stepdance Jan Meier was kind enough to send me an early production sample of his new Meier Stepdance portable amp.  The Stepdance is the first Meier Portable to use his “Balanced Ground” topology.  It’s designed as a performance-first portable amp, which means it has very few features (for example, Meier’s normal Crossfeed is omitted), and it also uses...” --Skylab

Meier Audio Corda Swing

Meier Audio Corda Swing

“ This is a nice amp for its price! It really drives my GS1000i very good. Unfortunately I can not compare it with other amps and I can't remember how my other high-end amp sounded. Sometimes I regret that I didn't save a little more to buy the Corda Jazz amp which only costs like 100 euro more and which has the balanced option (without need to recable your phone to balanced). ” --alexdemaet
