lusident, don't you find C5 (due to its opamp) a little bit to slow and less airy? Although I've never heard C5 and I know that implementation of a given opamp is the most crucial aspect of the sound of a given amp, but on my DIY Amp there is a difference in sound between OPA2227 (as I understand this opamp is used in C5) and for example AD8610 (which was used in C421 and currently is used for example in Leckerton Audio UHA-4); OPA2227 have very good bas but does not have this amount of air, instrument separation and neutrality which AD8610 have.
The reason I'm asking is because I'm looking for a new amp for my iMod and my ER4s. I want to have very neutral amp wich does not change much in the audio signal which comes from iMod.Edited by shakur1996 - 10/18/13 at 3:26am
