Well, firstly, despite what some online stores are selling it for, you don't need to pay USD $900 for it. I got mine for about USD $700. For anyone considering this amp, it pays to look around a bit more rather than just settling on the first result in google.
 
It sounds really good. A completely black background with custom IEMs and capable of powering my Fostex T50RP (not necessarily the best of my heaphones, but certainly the hardest to drive) quite comfortably. A pretty big soundstage and extremely clear and detailed. It's fast and keeps up with complex passages in music as well. Quite frankly, I'm amazed by it considering that it's slightly smaller than a pack of cigarettes and powered by a AAA. Fits my needs perfectly since most of the higher end amps are not something you can stick in your pocket.

Hehe Mr Rudi I knew this was going to happen sooner or later, congrats. When did you order the Mass Kobo? 

Please let us know how you like the Kojo amp, I for one would love to see how it compares against MHd-Q7.

I have Wagnus Epsilon S
kobo 385 sound signature is more or less like my Wagnus Epsilon S
Wagnus Epsilon S is better in term of :
soundstage , deeper bass , faster speed and more balance SQ

Ko Jo KM -01 vs Ortofon MHd - Q 7
Ko Jo KM - 01 win in all territory :D

High : very clean , clear , smooth sounding high and detail
Mid : more clear and clean and more sweet
Bass : better bass definition and better bass detail , very clean bass reproduction.
Soundstage : on par
Separation : is better and teller
Noise : very low noise , very black background , the best noise floor I ever heard

Overall : SQ so intimate like the singer sing in front of you :D
Is it very good for long listening during oversea trip
If not my wife call me , I do not want take out my iem from my ears :D

Highly recommendation and very limited only 300 pcs

Minus : Brass is very easy to scratch
and heavy 325 g for small amp

The rest is as my two best amps with my Wagnus Epsilon S

Hi Rudi. Nice to see you join the ranks of KM01-Brass owners. It is a pretty amazing amp, eh? You see what I mean by a black background with customs? I wouldn't have called any of my previous amps noisy... However, the first time you listen to the KM01 and it dawns on you how easy it is to pick out details is a revelation.
 
I wouldn't worry too much about how prone it is to scratches. The reason being that it's supposed to tarnish and develop it's own look after some time, so it won't always be so shiny. Although if you want to keep it in its current bright and shiny state, you should probably think about applying some lacquer.
