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.post #4923 of 49245/15/15 at 11:44pm
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.post #4924 of 49245/16/15 at 5:45amQuote:
And there's nothing wrong with that!
I drink to you, sir!
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.
Even the cheapest one was obviously superior!
