REVIEW: Meier Audio Concerto headphone amp - Page 35

post #511 of 833

I went ahead and ordered a pair of RCA splitters after reading a review where someone successfully hooked them as two inputs/one out. I opted for right-angled pair which had reviews mentioning a solid and all-metal build (while a reviewer of the Monster one mentioned it being metal plated plastic, LOL).

 

I'll let you guys know how it works. 

 

I'll kind of miss A/B'ing sources, but that's more of a nerd thing rather than serving any real function.

I heard some at JaZZ's home in that configuration.

How does the Concerto compare with SPL's Auditor and Phonitor? Which one is the best choice (price not very relevant for me)?

 

Thanks, Pedro

Got a pair of HD800's (used) today. Surprisingly they sound quite full-bodied with my Concerto, not overly bright or lean like some people say!

Today I have ordered a Concerto, a Stagedac and the Beyerdynamic T1 headphones.

That is the setup I am thinking of ordering, just not sure if it is worth paying a little more for the HD800s.....

Man.... I want a T1 so bad....   would love to hear how it sounds on the concerto.

Sorry for this....they sound really really good.

 

As good as they pair, I still prefer my tube amp with them.

I ended up getting the RCA connectors before the Concerto, so I hooked them up to my old amp.

 

From my time with them, it looks like I'll need to research switchboxes, as not only is the volume measurably lower with them, it also sounds muffled, which volume control alone can't fix and is a tell-tale sign of signal loss.

Hi Skylab,

Another good review. 1 question - did you/can you try any lower impedance headphones? Grados, Denons etc etc? Your review mainly focusses on the T1s. If you can try a lower impedance headphone, it would be most helpful.

post #524 of 833

Although I am not Skylab, I can attest that the Concerto works great with the Denon D5000's and the JH13's (28ohm)

Yup, Concerto works very well with the low impedance Denon D7000. Very well indeed.
