Matrix M-Stage amp review: simple, cheap, and excellent. - Page 290

post #4336 of 4888

If anyone wants to let their M-stage go, please shoot me a PM. I have been trying to grab one rather unsuccessfully.

Indeed. The difference between the dual op amp and mounting two singles on the adaptor sounds too big.

Everyone in Toronto is selling their M Stage (just kidding!)

Shipping is way cheaper if you just run across the border to drop it in the mail. Lol. Pmed you back.

Toronto is like a 2 hour drive away from the border though, so after spending the time and gas money the difference in shipping costs will probably be moot. lol

just ordered "LME49710HA X2 + Adaptor" and "1pcs DIP8 Single to DIP8 Dual Opamp Adaptor+Socket Gold Plated" so i be able to test more opamps with the M-Stage :P   will be using the Yulong D100 MKII as a DAC and the headphone is TH600.

You should try others chips too, for the price ...

Ya. I was assuming you guys periodically go across the border for other business. I know plenty of guys that go across the border to get car parts and stuff - maybe once a month or two.

I'm using the m-stage to power mainly my hd650. Current opamp is op627, any other suggestion? they do sound great from that combo and there less veil than from any other combo i've tried with the hd650

The LM4562 is a very popular Op Amp with M Stage Op Amp rollers.
To me it sounds a bit more open and crisp than the stock Op Amp or the OP627.

Agreed, the crisper treble of the LM4562 will be great for the HD650. Never try the class A biasing mod as it's already way too warm. With the HD650 that would be a complete disaster.
