The M-Stage was a great sounding amp, especially with an op amp upgrade. I was using it with HD600 but I had no DAC. So I got the D100 MKII DAC which has an amp section that sounds identical to the M-Stage with stock op amp. Yes the M-Stage with LM4562 op amp sounds better, but the difference was not big enough to justify having the M-Stage. Plus I needed the money. I wish the D100 had an op amp socket like the M-Stage, that would be perfect.
