I only have the DreamEarx AUD-8x at the moment...but I am looking at possibly the 4C / UM Merlin or JH13 as well.
Synergy with the R1 is good, but I lack other amps to compare it to. The R1 doesn't add much flavour, just improved soundstage and separation as well as a better punch to the bass when the drums hit. Rammstein's "Weidmanns Heil" or "Take The Power Back" by Rage Against the Machine are brilliant for testing punch...
I'm mostly looking for a new amp to try something new. After 1½ years with the DX100 as the answer to all my needs I want to try some new stuff
I used to have the Merlin but I can in no way recommend doing business with UM. Lots of others around here seem happy with their experience, YMMV and all that.
