Real nice, both grace m901 and hp-1's!

Always wanted to try out the grace m901-902 on my hp-2's.

To bad the grade M902 costs 2 814$ here in norway..

dam that's expensive! try and get it from the US on Ebay or something. there are obviously better and more expensive amps out there than the Grace, but like the HP-1s they were intended for studio use and made to be transparent. im sure there are better sounding combos with the HP-1, but i can feel pretty confident that i am as true to the source as financially possible for now which is what i am after. Also, M. Grace is an HP-1 fan so I am assuming he catered a bit to that can when designing the M901 and M902.

If it's good enough for his ears than i am more than OK with that.

been tested in out using a BenchMark DAC-1 as source

IMAC OPTICAL>DAC1>M901>HP-1 and though the difference is minimal the DAC-1 does take the edge off a bit. just a tad smoother and a bit more extension in the bass. that's just my immediate first impressions. all this with the baby crying in the background!~

Congrats on finding good synergy, and good luck fending off your dad.

Stereophile published the first part of their USB DAC-1 review this month. It looks like they had some technical issues, so there will be a second part later on.

didn't know that thnx! i think im simply going to use the DAC on the M901 for now anyways. It's pretty decent and makes for a nice all in one desktop solution.
