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.

Same, mine got... pretty hot, but it never burned or anything. At it's hotest it would make my headphone ePads like 100f or so. Nothing to serious

That is definitely something that I would be interested in if I were to choose the M-Stage. I like to tinker.

I loved it

I used an oDac, a w1000x, Dt 880 600 and Pro 250 ohm, a DT 990 Pro 250 ohm, an AKG K550, ShurEY 840 [Modded Shure 840] a Sound Magic HP 100 a ATH AD900x and A900x AND an HE 400 for a few hourse

 

Needed something more powerful! I also needed a Dac with multiple inputs and ouputs!
