What are the main differences in sound signature between these two amps? I haven't found any comparisons between the glacier and the pico slim...
Thanks in advance for your help
if you have a CLAS...why not go alo rx?
I've never heard the glacier but i think one of the big selling points is that its a dac/amp combo. so not using the dac portion would be kind of loss imo.
I dont know about the miracles, but my jh13's paired amazingly well with the original alo rx. Still haven't found an amp with so much synergy with the jh13's.
As im more of a portable rig than transportable (CLAS + amp, or just bigger amps in general) guy now I use the pico slim. It pairs fairly well with the jh13's...not as good as the alo rx but pretty close without considering the size difference. I used to run an ipod nano to an rsa shadow...which was the ultimate ultra portable rig.... the nano didnt cut it.
so now its an ipod mini with the pico slim.... slightly bigger than the nano + shadow; but it pairs better with my jh13's.
