I do, but I ordered the Magni/Modi stack and the availability of the Modi is holding up shipment. I'm hoping to see my box o' Schiit arrive before Christmas.

Heard the m100s are the bass lover's delight. Not so much on the q701's part, but that's fine since I'm not a bass lover. Doesn't look like you're going portable so maybe the q701. the k70x series has been said to be bright, but I have no idea what the meaning of bright is (probably more refined, play the violin so wooptydo). Still waiting on more impressions on this amp (just read, but most of it went out my head after reading other threads). Sound stage I guess the 701's would be better in staging things b/c of it being open. Haven't read much on m100 (but read that it does well w/ isolation; its element is the streets/public w/ noise. the mdr-1r was said to have had better sound when sitting in a quiet place. I guess even more so for the k70X series). But then again you might want to read up on the main 1R thread and see its design flaws. I saw something about tad loose connection between phones n cable (since it has 2 cables like the m100), and paint scratching (black version had chrome-- which was the scratched part. Not sure how silver does).Otherwise it's a matter of preference, Best of luck to you and your purchase.

Haha thanks I've done quite a bit of research and came up concluding that q701s fit me better than the m100s...this amp comes in because I'm not sure if the e11 is enough to power it ...
Portability isn't too big of a deal so whatever lol

The E11 is enough.

Uhmm, refer's to those who had their headphones killed by the earlier Schiit.

post #224 of 2158
^ Huh? What are you referring to?
post #225 of 2158

The earlier Schiit amp's killed various users headphones. It's a problem that Jason fixed later on.
