Just had MKII delivered. It just barely warmed up, still needs a lot of burn in. But initial impression is that voicing is extremely close to Headamp GS-1 with new modules (same as used in GS-X MKII).
So it's neither warm, nor bright or dry, just right to my liking.
The two differences that I can spot off the bat (need more time to compare properly), is that GS-1 has more treble energy, and Taurus more power and authority down low.
As far as pairing goes, I haven't tried anything except HD-800 but IMO Taurus is a better match to it, was afraid of that "Audeze tuning", guess it was just marketing related to ability to drive planars to their heart.
All that SE, can only imagine what balanced configuration can bring to the table.
And the build quality is really exquisite, Burson nervously smokes in the corners.
