I currently have a pair of AD900's and a pair of Shure 840"s running through Foodbar to an Audinist MX-1.
I am pondering purchasing a Matrix M-Stage amp to pair the MX-1 (as a DAC).
The M-Stage will cost me approx $270 AUD.
I listen to all genres of music, all mp3 320 or Flac.
I listen to both headphones pretty much equally.
I currently really enjoy the SQ from the MX-1, but if I can significantly improve it with the addition of the M-Stage, I would give it a go. Also its nearly time for a new toy. :-)
Will adding the M-Stage give me a noticable improvement with both headphones?
Is it worth paying the $270 for the headphones I have, or should the MX-1 suffice?
Thanks in advance for all replies.
