Okay a couple of days ago I went to Jaben Melbourne and then I asked for a couple of amp that may fit my budget. First of all the guy gave me govibe martin.. I listen for a while, try some jazz, classic, opera, pop, and it turns out not what I expected and then he gave me graham bells voyager and it totally kick the Q701 to another level... but the price was 350$AUD (or is it too pricy ?) and I am amazed cause as far as I know there are other choices around that price range. I was wondering if you guys could recommend some amplifier that fits well with Q701, I want to make it warmer.
Also on earlier post I am having trouble with equalizing, can anyone give me some tips on equalizing Q701 ? I've tried to equalize it and reduce the hissing.. but I feel like I lose some of the highs and details...
Thanks and enjoy Q701
A lot of us Q701 guys (and grrls?) are very happy with the Matrix M Stage.
It adds a touch of warmth to the Qs and is a pretty good amp for the $$$!
The propellor heads can roll Op Amps if they like.
As for the hiss, a better amp, like the Matrix M, may solve your problem.
I don't hear any objectionable high frequency noise, grunge, spitch out of the Qs unless it's in the recording. In my experience, bad recordings/masters are often to blame.
I.e. Diane Birch "This Corrosion" from iTunes.................tons of nasty high frequency noise, spitch and distortion!
