REVIEW: Meier Audio Concerto headphone amp - Page 36

post #526 of 827

Cool! Any opinions on Grados with this amp? Skylab, anyone?

post #527 of 827

hi skylab,

for HD650 do you prefer WA6 or Concerto..???

I know both amps had different sound signature, I just want to know your opinion..

 

thanx,

mike

I can't answer either of those last questions. I don't own any Grados, or the HD650. sorry.

X2 for me...the LCD-2s (also sub 100 ohm headphones) work very well with it too.

X3 My LCD-2 arrived yesterday and they sound excellent on the Concerto.  Really a great amp for the money

I have tried the Grado RS1i with the Meier Stagedac & Concerto. This headphone sounds great with this combo i.e. at least as good as on the Lehmann Black Cube Linear USB (my other system).

Agreed. I forgot to mention that as well. But in the end, the MAD Ear+HD is still the very best amp I've heard with my RS1is.

 I have the same question, concerned that the combo may sound bright.

 

Srajan Eben of 6 moons:

 

" It's on the incisive, energetic and illuminated side of the Tao and as such, not a top choice for bright, forward and potentially steely loads. "

 

Skylab has this to say about the highs:

 

"The amp is just a touch on the lively side in the treble"

It matches very well with my RS1i headphones. I don't find the highs overly emphasized (beyond the natural Grado treble that I'm used to). The Concerto is pretty flat with all of my headphones.

Regarding Concerto + Grado headphones I would say that the combination sounds great. But I have heard amplifiers with a better synergy with Grados than the Meier amps have in general.

I think the Concerto is much better than most other amplifiers I have heard in combination with HD650, T1 and even HD800. So if you are looking for a Grado-only amplifier with a special super-Grado-synergy I do not think the Concerto is the very best. On the other hand it does everything else so much better so it easily outperforms most other players in the same pricerange.

How long after ordering does it usually take to get this amp in the US?

 

Mine shipped on the 4th, and hasn't yet arrived. I'm in the process of moving, and it'll be kind of inconvenient to have my old roommates send it to me.

I'd imagine it could vary, depending on customs.  I haven't received anything from Europe in a while, but I know customs on the Asia->U.S. side can be really quick or can take several days by itself.

Mine arrived in almost exactly three weeks, mainly due to being in customs for almost 2 weeks.

I'm really shocked that the 6moons reviews for the Meier Concerto and Nuforce HDP  seem to give the edge to the HDP.  Has anyone here compared them head-to-head while using the HE-5LE?
