Well, when it gets here, I'll start gathering data for the review before I ever cut the tape on the box. My home office is stuffed with Vintage solid state goodies from the late 70s - mid 80s. I'll have plenty of SS to drive the MKV with and I'll use the Zero to drive it with digital sources as well. I have a feeling it will be a big "impressionistic" review. I love tube amps, but my true love is quality solid state, so this will be right up my alley. I just know that my HD-650s are going to perform like they never have before!

*my first Solid state...something better than a CMOY or integrated tuner/receiver/dvdp/cdp.

i went from the gilmore lite DPSed, to a DAC1, just added an Apache. enjoyed each step up.

Minivan: very nice equipment you got there. Never heard a graham slee solo before, but i heard it's sicc. Interested in knowing how the LDMKV stands up to such an amp.

d-cee: sorry mate i am not very good at write up , but here's my .02c. the mkv seem to offer the best soundstage, image precision, channel separation in compare to my other amp, the yamamoto and the talisman. but music seem to lack the refinement of the other 2, i.e it does not sound as musical as the talisman and it does not have the organic element of the yamamoto. still, i can see the potential of this amp, when i upgrade my source in the future, hopefully the neutrality of this amp will bring out what's best in the source. sometimes i wonder may be your OMZ will make a killer combo with this amp? in term of value for performance ratio, the mkv has to be way up on the top in compare to the other amp i had.

jh4db536: my graham slee solo is faulty so i stop listen to it, still waiting for my replacement from graham slee.

penchum: look forward to hear your impression on the mkv/hd650 combo, i am pretty the mkv will open the sucker up .my k240 sextett is 600 ohm the mkv can just drive it at ease, mr yang said the amp can output a max of 2w.

Brand new MKV for sale

Over in this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f5/joi...85/index8.html user : gdl357 Just received his MKV, but due to curcumstances, he needs to sell it. He's asking the same as he paid, but he'll ship it for free, which saves $45. Just though some of you might want to know.
