The main thing that gets me all worked up regarding the Objective 2 amp is the panel jacks. I like the desktop version of this amp where appropriate RCA connectors are added to the back of the case and a 1/4" panel jack can be installed on the front panel for convenience. To me, it just seems awkward having all those ghetto cables, connected to adapters to bring them down to 3.5mm plugs, so they can be used to fit into the front panel on the O2.
Yes. As a matter of fact, those are my true feelings.
Do you know if the HUD-MX1 offers the capability of swapping out the op-amp? If so, this might open up the possibilites of going for a more neutral, or warmer sound that isn't so bright.
Yes I know about the opamp switching, but I believe nwavguy stated that opamp switching makes barely any difference.
Do you have any experience in opamp roling?
Oh and I don't really mind the brightness of the hud-mx1. It's not nearly as bad as some may say, and some people like a little extra brightness.
And I sooo agree with the panel of the 02! So ugly! Who wants an input on the front, so much cable clutter!
