I heard The sound quality from LCD XC is not so optimal like i drive use external amp

IMO

 

I listened to the LCD-XC from my portable sources and wasn't impressed. It was a fun sound, but sound stage was collapsed and imaging sloppy. I keep seeing people say how great they are from portable sources, I think due to their low impedance, but there is more to driving a headphone well than that, and they don't produce anything like a reference sound from portable sources to my ears.

Yes you are right George

Wagnus is better than Mass Ko Bo 395

High :
Wagnus more extended , more clear

Mid :
Wagnus has more body and clear mid

Bass :
Wagnus has better bass speed and better detail

Separation :
Wagnus has better music separation

Soundstage :
Wagnus until now is the widest soundstage in portable amp

The different is not like night and day , is only 10%

These two are audiophile SQ in portable SE amps plus Ko Jo KM 01

IMO

Yeah, that's why it's such a pain to wait for Bialbero Quattro V from Wagnus this summer. More sweetness with tubes and then we could take things to the next level with AA-sized LiFePO4 batteries just like this

Lighter than the NiMH ones so that's another plus for those of us who are on the road.

I saw In Mook Singapore festival the picture last year
Wagnus Epdilon S MAX SQ is below Wagnus Epsilom S like mine
It was less detail and more to warm sounding less clarity
I don't know why Wagnus change their Sound signature in Max version ?

I have the chance to audition the TH900 belonging to Gavin's friend. I am so impressed with the smooth and neutral sound off the Mass Kobo 394.

I have to come to learn that mass kobo 395 is more mid-centric and may not have the same synergy. Or was it really just a power thing?
