Perhaps you could add a bit more detailed comparison between MA8 and iHIFI960 to the review, like you did with MA9 review? 960 is much closer to MA8 in price, than to MA9, so more sense to compare them. Stuff like lows/mids/highs, soundstage width/depth, separation, micro-detail, etc.
Besides, from your reviews I got an impression that MA8 and iHIFI960 must be closer in sound signature as well... you mentioned that 960 is "more "modern hi-fi" compared to MA9, and also more detailed. The same goes for MA8:
"MA8 could possibly be described as more neutral, but I'd also throw in the description "lit up" and "highly detailed". It's definitely a more modern sound that some people would prefer and others would not"
I'm asking because there is not much information about MA8 across Internet and you might be one of only a few of people in the world who got the chance to compare it with other high-end players, so your experience and opinion on this one is extremely valuable for the audiophile-community... at least that's what I think!
And for those who are only using IEMs, possibly low impedance ones, would you still recommend iHIFI960 over MA8 due to amp-section issues?
