Thanks for the detailed info. I think it's these kinds of personal support and genuine comments that makes me keep buying Grace designs products.

High-end audio is a business where a lot of manufacturers can get away with dodgy inadequate implementations, so it's reassuring to be informed about these technical matters.

I fully believe in your approach to sound and quality designs, so keep up the good work.

Hi sandalaudio,

Thanks for your support.

It has always been our philosophy that the best sounding equipment in the world is useless if it is broken!

Performance and reliability share the same top priority in our design process.

I now have two units and recently started using the M903 with the Audeze LCD3. 

 

And...?  Elaborate pretty please.  :)


Has anyone else tried the m903 with the LCD-2's or 3's?  

 

Also, how does the m903 compare to the Conductor and the Reference 10.32?

after over a year use with the M903 and various cans like the LCD2 and LCD3 you asked, as well as the HD800, GS1000i, D7000, UE10 and my favorite the TH900.

The M903 does what it preaches.  It is a reference studio headphone monitor.  The sound is neutral and accurate.  It can drive hungry cans like the LCD2, LCD3, HD800 and TH900 with room to spare.  Musically, I prefer a nice tube amp like my Cary 300SEI with classical and jazz, but the M903 is fine enough for a short listen now and then.

 

I have no experience with those 2 items you listed.

 

cheers

 

Paul

Here are the Watt figures - they are the same for both units
m903 and m920.

32 Ohm    2100mW
50 Ohm    1548mW
300 Ohm    271mW
600 Ohm    136mW

 

They numbers aren't listed on the website and I got permission from Grace to post them on this and the m920 thread.

Iistened to it today and I Liked it à lot !

I would have bought it if i had not already à HUGO. I found the 903 better (tighter) on bass than the HUGO.
