I have HD800 and it seems M-Stage HPA-2 is a match. But i understand that the DAC isn´t that great and my question is if i get an improvement if i pair it with Modi 2 UBER. I also wonder if anyone here have compared Magni 2 Uber vs M-Stage HPA-2 with HD800?

 

Thanks!

Does the M-Stage pair well with any electrostatics? It's output seems on the lowend of what you'd need for a high end electrostatic, but are there options that it would make sense with? I'm still enjoying my Q701s with it immensely, but if I do eventually upgrade, it's electrostatic or bust.

Electrocstats get electrostatic amplifiers.  M-Stage is for orthodynamics and regular dynamics only.

I used to have a Matrix M Stage.

I still have a pair of Q701.

 

I also have the Stax SRS-2170 system.

There is no contest, the Stax beats the Q and Matrix hands down.

 

The Stax is a cleaner, more natural, purer sounding headphone system.

Cleaner, less grainy treble, flatter frequency response, a more realistic, less mechanical sound..
