Got email notice that they left the slip on my door that the amp is here for pickup. Damn... finally!

6moons audio reviews: Meier Audio Corda Concerto

Compared to Burson:
"The Australian's insistence that op amps suck falls apart of course when confronted by something like Jan Meier's Concerto which embraces them and sounds no worse for it."

"It's the perfect anything-goes dedicated headphone amplifier."

I can tell you that after a month nirvana turns into purgatory, and then hell

Thanks for the post! That is excellent news indeed... very positive review and that jab at Burson really did make me feel even more confident in my purchase.

That s**t happens between 95%-98% of all deliveries for me too...

Seems like a few people here are waiting forever to receive their Concertos. I am glad I am based in Europe I hope I do not have to wait that long. But postal shippings might still be heavily delayed because of the Volcano even though they were shipped before??

Haha best of luck to both of you! I really mean it.

My amp should at least be in the country if people in the US are receiving them... now it is just a matter of the evil, lethargic Canadian customs... which could be another 2 weeks on its own. FML

I almost bought a Burson.I could not ignore an obvious design flaw.
Between volume/pot adjustments it would switch to the left channel before switching to both channels.This happened with every turn of the nob. I could not ignore that.

So I bought the Meier instead. I'm glad I did. It is a pleasure to listen to in every way.

In all fairness though I heard that Burson fixed the problem.

Concerto FINALLY ARRIVED w00t w00t!

The clarity and dynamics are really astounding even upon the first few seconds of sound!

Really is tiny though but at least I know my money is not only in the chassis!

OK... just have to say this is the most accurate sounding amp I have ever heard... I mean worth EVERY penny and the awful wait! and believe it or not my HD595 120's or just fricking amazing on it. the SA5K's, DT48 200's and HD 650 shine also. can not wait to try the rest of my cans on it. Skylabs review was spot on. Damn is all I can say

BTW, holy crap is it small!

Yeah I took it out of the box and was like -_- ... I plugged it in an I was like 0_0 ... Not that it doesn't look nice, It loks MUCH better in the "flesh" but it really is so much smaller than I was expecting.

The clarity is nuts... everything is so well placed and defined... it is like putting on glasses for the first time when you didn't think you really need them.

The only down side is some songs sound fairly different in the sense that you really hear some aspects for the first time.

Definitely money well spent!

So the benefit was obvious even on your low impedance cans?

Most definitely! Admittedly I cannot tell if the D7000 or the the HD 600 was the one that improved the most... but I really did not think an amp could do this to my sound system.

Definitely is worth getting for low impedance headphones!

Now that you've finally got your amp I'll be looking forward to your comparison between the D7000 and W1000X =)
