How does the Matrix M-Stage sound with the Sennheiser HD800?

I've used the M Stage with the HD800 and it is surprisingly good for a budget system. I think the HD800 happens to be a very good match with the M Stage but hardly end game. You might also want to consider the Gustard H10 as they are both good budget solutions.

I tried but I couldn't tell the difference between matrix m stage and my friends ~$5000 custom tube amp (someone more experienced probably could).

After that I stopped looking and listening to amps and I focused on music.

And there's nothing wrong with that!
I drink to you, sir! biggrin.gif

The ugly truth is.....
I used to have a fairly expensive vacuum tube pre-amp.
One sad day I compared it to a few cheaper (and more modern) pre-amps; Solid State and Solid State/Vacuum Tube hybrids.
Guess what?
Even the cheapest one was obviously superior! redface.gif
