wow..have been lurking here for a few weeks now..not posting anything thats hard for me
But now i have to... Regarding the m-stage..i had rev 1 once..and i used it to burn-in my he500 that i just had bought to save the tubes on the 337 i also just bought 2 years ago.
And it did it very good..surprising well...but u have to play with the 2 gain sliders under the little one...if i am not mistaken it sounded well with gain on 10db (second click)... Okay..it was not earth shaking good..the 337 was a hugely improvement (or else i would never buy it!!!!).. But the little one did good for the price..never ever it clipped!! Bass was not the best..but for the rest it was acceptable...and i didnt expected that..but once again,,i had a rev.1, without the dac or usb input. And I understand those sounded a bit different then the newer reversions. But to me..if ur on a small budget and have lack in space to put the amp away..get a mstage!
Yeah I have the HPA-2 with 15dB fixed gain. The 560 is slightly more efficient than the 500 at least
I'll be rolling in the LME49710HAX2 soon. For now have the LM4562.
I'll let my ears decide ;D
