Yes i actually did..i used the matrix to burn in the he500's..5 days non-stop playing..and he didnt give a peep..
.i used the hifiman hm602 as the source...and i am serious now..it sounded really good! Even to a point i used it as refence to the two darkvoices i was interested to buy..the guy had both of them to sell..i wil tell u..the 3322 was NO MATCH against the little matrix...everything was better on the matrix! Only the beast the 337 was better..but again..its way in another price league..especially with the rare and expensive tubes he had in it..i heard some other tubes on the 337 and believe me..i loved my matrix more..so if the 337 didnt have these particular tubes i would say..my matrix would be my amp still...its so clear sounding with good bass..good soundstage also..but u dont need to believe my word on it..check forums..u will read same things about the matrix and the he500..and those are not modded!
The knob never get passed the 2 pm on my matrix..for the price..its unbeatable..check other forums..more people say they pair surprisingly well...i dont know how it compares to the master of power the lyr..but that amp is twice the price..and u need to tube roll to get the best out of it..my matrix is up and running when u switch it on..and for sale now..
: for ur info..its bought in december last year. So almost new.Edited by hifimanrookie - 11/4/12 at 7:35am
