Thing is, I had the WM with the 6s (3.32) and wasn't particularly impressed... Might have been the 6s fault though...
I am just planning ahead in case of Mstage not being up to snuff
Do you plan on keeping the M-Stage?
I would suggest going All-in-one to get a more powerful amp.
Going from the M-Stage to the SA-31 was a substantial change with my planars (HE-4 & HE-500 back then). The 560 still has a quite low efficiency @90dB.
That I don't know yet. If I am to upgrade, I'd probably ditch the Mstage and get the Compass 2/ NFB 28...
If I don't stumble across even better, similarly priced combos...
Speaking of which, the Mstage w/ DAC module is very stellar so far... So I'd really have to feel that the 560 is underperforming... I don't wanna throw quids around for subtle improvements
Blame the mini x , the 6 should at least go with the 28 back then.
560 with compass 2 will be ok, and which implementation ?
Your ears will decide !
Or maybe not... I might spring for the NFB28, I am undecided yet.
Yeah for 680 I think I gotta
[also fixed your post ]
EDIT: But 'tis a different decision :/
EDIT2: Bought the Compass 2 w/ ESS9018! HYPE!
How'd you describe the ESS Compass 2's signature? It's neutral, right?
