Yesterday I received my Corda Concerto. It was allot smaller than I thought but heavy for the size. It's a very cool looking little amp. Having read 'Skylabs' review I don't need to go into the outer workings of it, however this is my assessment:
THis amp is the best ( SS ) amp I have ever heard.This amp is completely neutral across the board. There is no coloring at all.
My cans are Grados, Denons, and Beyers dt880/600OHM. THere is no need to EQ any of these at all. The beyers pair the best on high gain, however my other cans sound the best I've heard from them.
I am used to listening to mostly tube amps and now am a believer in SS amps of this Quality. Meier Rocks!!!
One other thing, there is an airiness like a high quality tube amp.
i was curious about the same thing, but thats also one of the reasons i was so curious in the amp, with the noise floor as low as it is, i doubt there will be noise with any headphone, including the most sensitive of iem's. and my only headphone is my jh-13's and ive been looking for a home amp for it...
