Without a doubt, it powered my DT990 600ohm really well.
On another note, I had a terrible misfortune today.
When I turned on my M-Stage, volume always set at 0% (10db) if I'm not listening, I left the room for 4 minutes. When I returned my entire room smelled like burnt plastic. I instantly powered off my DAC and amp and unplugged them both, taking each device out into different rooms. The M-Stage was definately the culprit as it gave away the horrible odour. Hopefully I managed to stop any fire since I didnt see any smoke rising. The M-Stage was not very hot to touch, it's been hotter before during 3h+ long playing sessions. But this time it did take a while for it to cool off.
Contacted coolfungaget about this. Hopefully it didnt do any damage to my HD650s that were connected to the amp. But let us only hope.

To say the least I was a little disappointed with the packaging. I mean they used the original box as the shipping parcel. Shame, the box looks really classy/premium. I also liked the M-Stage especially with LM4562 op-amp. Just have to wait and see how they deal with return shipping. I've never had to send anything back before when buying from China/USA. It's gonna suck if I have to bite into expensive shipping costs :S
No, I was planning on it but postponed it. I've read that others here ran directly via the 4562 op-amp without any complications. However, I doubt it's due to the 4562 because 2 days ago I tried out the original opamp OPA2134 to see how it sounded in comparison since I havent heard it in a while. Yesterday it was running fine. Today afternoon it worked fine. When I come home to power it on for more this happens.
I have that combo.
The Matrix M has absolutely no problem driving the DT880/600 Ohms to any insane volume you may want.
Personally, I don't like the sound of it too much. A bit too dry, bland and uninvolving for me.
I get more pleasure out of listening to the DT880/600 out of a FiiO E09K (costs half the $$$!).
Out of the stuff I own I usually prefer the DT880/600 Ohm with my La Figaro 336C, which is an OTL tube amp.
