Yeap :)

PWD2 is warm but the GS-X mk2 adds to it.  Much less warm on the Soloist or B22 for instance, same PWD2.  I would actually say that the PWD2 is more highly dynamic and natural sounding than warm.  Warmth without rolled top or sense of being laid back on compressed.

Wait... you think the GS-X mk2 is warmer than the B22?

Yup.  Difference is the GS-X mk2 like the PWD2 isn't dynamically dead or rounded like the B22.  Let's not confuse warm with laid back.  Just for another data point... the Gungnir and Mjolnir are a great pairing while that same Gungnir on the mk2 pushes past warm into bloom borderline muddy.  The PWD2 on the Mjolnir, for my preferences, was too bright.  PWD2+GS-X mk2 though is heaven.

I think I understand now. You are referring to the GS-X/PWD MKII combo as being warm right? If so, I agree. If we are talking just about the amps, I don't feel the GS-X mk2 is very warm at all. Maybe some slight emphasis in the lower regions, but pretty neutral overall.

I would add that the mk1 is not warm.  Same circuit but different devices and bias levels.  Compared to the original Dynalo models the mk2 is a bass monster.  I've had a few over the years ;)

Ah okay, I'm beginning to understand where you are coming from. You see warm as affecting bass only, correct? If so, that makes more sense.

Finally I pulled the trigger and bought a demo pair from klutz design which he brought to a hi end show. Barely used and about 1000 dollar less than the retail price you gotta pay if you buy it in sweden, so i'm happy.

I've got a serious question to the GS-X mk2 holders, before I make my move, people here rant about Transparency and all and there was some raving going on about the Bryston BHA-1, which I went to listen to at some point, and thought it made my LCD-3 sound unnaturally bright, would you say that the GS-X mk2 is a bright amp as much as BHA-1 or is it much less so? would really appreciate your feedback on this :)

Yea I paid the same price as you pay in USA for the LCD-3. But seeing as the stores in Sweden have starting to sell it for around 3000$  I am pretty pleased I got them for 2000$ here :D

Not even remotely bright.
