Especially for you I did a mini comparison between the alpha dogs from Mr speakers and the pro 80 ;-) . The difference is mainly in the detailing, the alphas have much more texture and detailing. The pro80 sounds quite hollow (bit like an echo chamber) in comparison. Mids are more recessed as well. They also miss a bit of attack in the music the alphas have. Still, absolutely fantastic value for money!
I would invest in a o2/odac stack. Very neutral and drives most phones just fine. It'll help you decide more easily what kind of sound you're looking for!
If you're in the states massdrop has a drop for the odac right now
Hi thanks a lot for the very valuable advice. Clearly i got too excited about the 2050 performance.
And i read great things about the O2 unit as well. I will look for it.
Kind regards, gino
