When I hear the term musical - I think of color or something is being add that's not in the track it self ie. Making it musical.. That's just me..
I don't consider the M6 musical as such. It's tonality, with the NFB-7, is very neutral, not overly lush or too thin and detailed enough to be called analytical by some people. It's also far from being 'tube' like musical.
I actually like analytical and it can, if done right, sound very musical at the same time and that is something I feel that Audio-gd do so well.
The M6 is very 'true' to the recording IMO and this is very clear by the way it allows recordings to sound totally different from each other.
The GSX Mki did sound good but I felt was colder and more sterile than the M6 which had a much fuller 3D sound.
Both did the speed, clarity, dynamics things very well indeed and the bass was superb on both.
My issue is with people that as soon as they hear that a particular amp is being released 'assume' that it's going to be the best in it's price range before anyone has even heard it.
I am very interested in the Ragnarok but won't put my money down until it's finally released and some opinions are formed. I am not about to turn round and pre judge it as the best in it's price class.
