They both have their pluses. The MZ2 is a perfect balance of tube and SS. It's fast, while still maintaining a lovely musical attitude. It plays well with many headphones, but some I prefer straight through the X7.
Did some comparisons, short answer is the Sparkos make a tremendous difference imo. Each set stepped it up a good notch. I hope to start the review tonight with more details.
If you are looking to take your music to another level, the complete swap is highly recommended.
Thanks for the insight. I'm just wondering if putting more money into the X7 might not be wise as compared to saving up for a substantial amp upgrade with a balanced out for my headphones (if something like the Jotunheim is, in fact, a substantial upgrade over the X7)
