Nice to know the M9 (so I assume the M6 as well) has greater transparency and detail than the Taboo because it as always been an amp I have curious about. You may of saved me some money there
Ah...good point. Analog dac isn't fully balanced (just 2 dacs, instead of 4) and I have only tried the RCA input from M9. You may have a point. Will try the XLR inputs as well.
M9 has greated transparency than taboo overall, but Taboo has somethings that I love as well, in this setup at least : the chords have greater extension and body, the sound is more energetic, forward and fuller, bass is punchier, etc. Will do a review on M9 soon after I consider I am sure on my findings and setup matching and a comparison to taboo as well.
