when you say musical, does that mean it has roll of both on high and lows? musicality means how close it sounds to real life it contains all the attributes like high, mid, low, stage, timber, speed
If you like ultimate control a top build b22 is the master of it the HDVD-800 is between b22 and Malvalve where the Malvalve and Rudistor presents real life closest.I like add here that we are talking
of very small nuances wich you hear only when you have all amps in row to compare.If you listen only with HDVD-800 you will definitely be satisfied
Well, before I got my HDVD800, I was trying to get something like 030 or darkstar. The thing is, I use to like smooth dark sound, but after my mind has been burned in with DAC1+RPX-35 combo, I am actually start to like a bit bright sound which adds some layer to the mid and high-mid range. It makes music with larger stage sound more detailed and realistic to me. (Although they made most of my pop songs sounds like crap, but that is due to the bad recording, so I am ok with it~)
When you say HDVD800 is between B22 and Malvave, I guess what you mean is the sound signature form cold -> warm, dry -> liquid, analytical -> musical?
