Yeah i do..even through the matrix i heard things i never heard in my music..i started to listen even to songs i dont like..just for the sound quality the he500 gives;) and with the 337 it only improved...redface.gif:D

How's the weight and comfort for you with the he500. It was always a little too heavy for me. While the he400 was just right.

Weight is indeed something i had to get customed to...and the pleather tended the phones to move on my head..so i think because of that also it felt more heavy..but with the velours ones the comfort is good..and the sound got better! More open and articulate...now i dont even have the feeling its heavy..but the sound! Wow..

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.. biggrin.gif .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.. tongue.gif : for ur info..its bought in december last year. So almost new.

Wow congrats on the 500s! I have a modded Matrix, I bought the mod as discussed in the Headphonia article. I totally agree with you about the quality, but I also have a little dot mark III, with military Mullard Tubes. I prefer the tubes.

I bought that mod..and my mstage got elevated to a new level..and its plug and play..and cheap mod...

Thanks! But tubes normally dont pair well with electro dynamics as those need lots of power . Thsts why i was surprised how well the 337 did..okay with special tubes...but am glad u found the combo little dot with those tubes good...

Haha nice.

 

Maybe the modded version does who knows. I came across some op-amps here but not sure which is best for the m-stage. I'll probably order it after i've used the m-stage for a while and get accustomed to the sound.

Well I doubt it really, but I hope it sounds good at least. Listen to the OPA2134 for a while, and after that ---> the m-stage thread or pm me biggrin.gif
