But you will never know that T1 is truly the best unless you lived with others for some time.
My T1 + Phoenix + Ref-7 have yet to be beat (for me). Plus Phoenix serves as excellent preamp. It is really a highly flexible, cost-effective, and well sounding gem.
Let's see if HE-6 or sr-407 will hold for their own place.
They are very close in signature to each other but I need to use the HE6 on the SX980 to get the best out of them and can use the T1 on my SET OTL CSP-2 a perfect synergy as I owned them once before and will be back where I love the most and thats my tube amps. I kept the SX650 and am using it while my Tube amps are at decware now so I have the T1 shipping tomorrow. The funny thing I went throug all the flagships and now am back exactly where I started and should be as happy asd I was last year.
