Interesting to "hear" what pairs best,..

Would be curious if anyone has used the Resonessence Invicta/Mirus dac with the GS-X Mk2.

This is confusing and concerning to me. Does this mean some people who ordered DACT will miss out in this batch?

JUSTIN is THE MAN!!!! Thank you. I LOVE this amp. 

The resolution is amazing. Its my taking over as my mixing amp. I would not call it analytical (which is how I listen -- resolution over euphony), but I can hear it all!!  It so pleasant to listen to as well though (i.e. it is euphonic -- for lack of a better word). In short, its all there! 

Another comment for those weary of waiting. Once you get this amp, you are done. if you skip out on the next batch, i guarantee after you hear it you are gonna want it. Might as well get the ball rolling now, rather than later -- that is if you don't like waiting. wink_face.gif
Oh and BTW, I only auditioned this amp at meets (not great critical listening environment) and I knew then it was a special amp. Now that its in my system and I can listen to it in a better environment, I can appreciate it so much more. 

Are you able to compare it against your Stratus?

Maxvla, feel free to PM me if this is too OT, but I notice you have an ECP Black Diamond amp as well as the GS-X MkII. Would you mind to share any thoughts on any similarities or differences between the sound offered by each? Thanks in advance!! :)

Hi, I'll be doing a full review once I receive Schiit's Ragnarok. Also I need to let the GS-X have some time to break in.
