Wow... I just figured out that gain on my amp was turned onto its max setting. I was just about ready to give up on the m-stage as well.

It sounds SO much better now. Dampened T1's + M-stage = smily_headphones1.gif

The gain labels on the bottom of my M-Stage are backwards. I didn't realize this until I tried to turn down the gain ... and it went up.

LOL!
Yeah, we've all done it!
Personally I am NOT a big fan of 20 dB of gain, I like 10 dB.wink.gif

That's what I want to use.

 

Unfortunately, some of my five year-old DVD rips are barely audible except at the 18 dB setting.

Oddly enough, I don't mind the sound of 18 dB of gain in the M. But 20 dB..........eh!

A rite of passage as an M-stage owner is to mix up the gain switches.

Am I such a quiet listener or something by having the amp on 10 'o clock at most at 0dB gain, I mean, I use it qith a Q701, which aren't the hardest cans to drive, but not the easiest either..

Are you sure it's on 10dB and not 18dB? Those are the two that get mixed up.

I dont think its a mix up...i burned my new he500's with the mstage..and listned to it sometimes to check the differnce of the SQ during the burn-in..and i never ever had it over 2 o'clock with 10db gain.and my he500's are harder to drive..its one little tough cookie...i have the black version by the way. Is to be sold..got a better amp now..see my pics/avatar
