REVIEW: Meier Audio Concerto headphone amp - Page 16

post #226 of 827
Thread Starter 
Regardless of technology, an amp is still an amp - differences in amps, while they can be very meaningful IMO, will always be smaller than differences between headphones.

There was a recent Solid Stage vs Tube thread, might want to read that. Not only is Skylab right about differences, but also at this price range you won't design for a lot of coloration anyways. It's not so much the technology as much as the holistic design, as I understand it.

That was most helpful. It makes sense that the cans are going to make the most difference.
Thank you for explaining it to me. i'm going to try to find that ss versus tube thread.

Thanks

[QUOTE=audiorapture;6574384]the more I read about the Concerto the better it sounds.

Back to the Corda Concerto:

My Denon d2000's are sounding incredible on this amp, nice balance in the lows. The clarity is profound with any kind of music.
My beyer dt880-600ohm still pair the best as far as my cans go.
This is truly an amp to be recond with despite the price range. Very balanced throughout the empedance level.
Anyone looking for an amp in this price range will not be dissapointed.

happy listening; Ken

this is very tempting.
i fancied the srg11 but concerto would also match better with the stagedac on my desktop.
gonna look into how much i could get for my srg1 ,first though.
great review, btw.
also looking forward to 6moons final review, too.

just hope the increased low end will suit the d7000!?!?

post #237 of 827

is it likely to be a worthwhile upgrade?

considering my headphone choice..
would an upgrade from srg1 to concerto be a big or subtle difference?

I listen to all types of music. I tested it out initially with Porcupone Tree "Deadwing" for its rock flavor, then Sarah Mclachlan "Surfacing" for it's clarity and warmth. Then I threw in 1961 John Coltrane "Village Vangard".

Each one passed the test. Since then I have listened to classical, acoustic, classic rock and so much more. I tell the truth when I say that I have not been dissapointed.

I'm not trying to sell an amp. Just relating my experience with the Concerto.

I hope others like it as well as I have.

Regards

Wish Jan would offer expedited shipping option. This long wait is just ridiculous, i would gladly pay more to get his products faster.
