I hope you're being facetious! Posts like the above are exactly why things get screwed up on this site so fast! What purpose are you serving by posting that? You really have NO place to declare the TH, the Hornet, HR-2, SR-71, etc... a winner. I'm sure there are a number of people who will disagree with you, but please refrain from stating something as though it's fact and gospel.

The TH is not better than the Hornet, more than likely it's the same... All of Ray's amps share a sonic signature, but there are subtle differences that allow each one to stand out on it's own. Maybe with you're particular rig that is the case for you, I'm sure someone using a different combination with their hornet and TH would say otherwise.

People, please do not feed into this kind of post, judge for YOURSELF what YOU deem to be the best or the winner for YOUR ENJOYMENT!

Let's get back to enjoying the music and stop with all of this proclaiming and declaring what's the best nonesense...

I hope Ray sees this and comments, but more than likely he won't, because it's not worth his time to do so.
hahah arent you the one that posted

Hornet > Tomahawk
in the other tomahawk vs hornet thread?

Everybody (well I hope) realizes that everybody is looking for a different sound and hears differently!

HAHA yea i know. I just thought it would be funny if I brought it up here.

But seriously morph, how would you right a review of two amps when its clear (to you) that one is better then the other?

Hey FreeBlues, don't worry too much mate. I for one appreciate your view and find them very informative. I am sure there's a lot of people out there feel the same. Thank You!

I was joking again! I would NEVER EVER part with my hornet, since
Hornet M > all amps!!

I hope to be there also, but I might be in chicago that w\e

I guess it's extremely hard to write a review about something SO subjective, you know... I would just leave it at the differences and let YOU decide which difference you prefer. The funny part is that most of the amps were built and tested using a totally different source, so most of us, including myself, don't know how it actually sounds!! It just seems that this site has become a BIG comparison playground for portable amps, for the most part, and the big joke is that there isn't a huge sonic difference amongst them just subtleties... but it's all good! No harm no foul!!

PS: Let me know how that B-52 connected to the meridian g08 sounds!

If FreeBlues feels the Tomahawk is the winner over the Hornet he's entitled to that opinion. If he wants to personally judge one better than the other that's his business. Personal opinions about gear do not have to be neutral. I've owned both the Tomahawk and the Hornet and there are differences in the sonic signatures. If I could I would've kept both, but in the end decided on the Hornet.

Last post and them I'm done.. I see this is going WAY off track... *sigh*

Yes, there are sonic differences, but once again, there are underlying sonic similiarities.. THIS my friend, came from the creator! So argue with Ray about that... I'm not getting paid a dime to endorse it, so this is where my interest ends... G'day..

The reviewer (FreeBlues) made it clear that his assessment was his own opinion. I am appalled that someone would condemn another poster for stating their informed observations. That is what this site is all about.

I hate to get involved in something that doesn't concern me, but I feel FreeBlues has every right to describe one amp as "better". He does not say it is better for everyone. He cleary stated that he was referring to his experience, which included his amps, source, IEM, music, etc...

I for one enjoyed reading his post and hope that no one is discouraged in the future from expressing their opinions on this forum. -CK

Yes there are similarities too, I agree. But they do not sound the same. I've spoken to Ray in the past myself, and I seriously doubt he would argue that they sound the same or condemn someone's personal opinion (no matter what it may be) concerning any of his gear.

exactly... i don't see why someone can't declare the tomahawk to be the best portable amp or a winner or better than the hornet... i actually welcome people that declare their opinion. at least they made up their mind on what they liked instead of the usual "oh the hornet and tomahawk are different..." yeah well, chocolate and vanilla ice cream are different too, so which flavor do you like??? that's the type of opinions that would help informative forums like this since it is all a matter of opinions anyways...

I have always enjoyed the sound out of The Hornet "M" (over 700 hours of burn in and use) over that of the Tomahawk (over 300 hours of burn in and use). Well over the last 2 weeks I have been burning in the Tomahawk and it now has over 600 hours of burn in and use.

I just did a quick comparison and find that the Tomahawk is very close if not the same to my Hornet "M". I am using my my coputer files (Apple Lossless) to an Musical Fidelity X-Dac V3 to the two amps and to a 2005 Beyer DT990 (250 ohms).

Is there anyone out there with high hours on both a Hornet "M" and a Tomahawk, say over 600 hours. If so have you noticed if they have gotten closer in sound. I mean the Tomahawk is very punchy now, at first it was lacking in this area. Not anymore, heck I could live with the Tomahawk and sell the Hornet "M".
