Meier Audio Quickstep (also Stepdance and 2Stepdance) Discussion and Impressions Thread - Page 157

Anyone run the HE-500 off the QuickStep?

I tried it earlier tonight and it sounded pretty great at about 75% volume on high gain. I guess I'm asking if it would really benefit from a beefier amp.

I can't wait to try the XP8000 with the Quickstep soon. After that, I can drop kick the QuickStep into a concrete wall and put it on the FS forum wink.gif

Haha. You are in inspiration, at least to me.

Haha, then it may not have reached its maximum flavor sonic potential. biggrin.gif

Did you find something better?

The Quickstep. Not sure it's better, but the black color matches my TP more appropriately.

That was my first guess. Kind of a "don't tell me..." guess. smile.gif

If you had problems with cellphone interference, the QuickStep only picks it up when you come out of a no signal area, like a subway tunnel into a low signal area and the phone works it's hardest to get reception. Other than that, not a peep; text messages, web browsing, nothing. This is my first portable amp so I don't know how others are with this.

If this is your first portable amp, then you are doing quite well.

Just got another Quickstep off the FS forum.  Yes, I am that crazy and I change my mind often.  Yes, I do think the Quickstep is that good.

 

However, after a few minutes of trying the Quickstep, I realized that something was wrong.  It sounded terrible.  It took more of the volume pot to power my headphones and the sound lacked deep bass and space.  I opened up the Quickstep and realized it was in low power mode.  While this doubles the battery life of the Quickstep, it sounds pretty bad.  I tried the Quickstep after the change and everything was right in the world again.

 

Just a tip for anyone who buys a Quickstep on the FS forum - check to make sure it is on high power mode.  You would be very disappointed if it is.

I can't help but wonder if the seller knew what impact that switch setting had made on SQ.  It's easy to imagine he/she may have sold it because he/she was unimpressed with the sound.

 

I'm glad you figured it out - and that all is well with your purchase!

 

Mike

Funny but true. You need to literally stalk the FS forums for the good stuff.
