Permission to steal this... Though It'll be a while til I can, Mine's not due for a few months..
Anyone who can give his/her 2cents THX 789 AAA/Chord Qutest VS Chord Hugo 2 with HD800?
I don't know about with the HD800, but my impressions are that a Hugo 2 direct is more resolving than adding the 789 in the chain. You're just not going to beat NOT adding a bunch of electronics in the chain.
Cancelled the THX drop and ordered the CH2 hope that the 2GO will materialize sooner than later...
Has anyone had a chance to compare the 789 to a Marantz Dac 1? Or anything Violectric?
I've cancelled the Massdrop amp and purchase the Monoprice THX. I'm too impatient. Hope I've not made a big mistake!
I'm curious about the Monoprice THX but that's easier to get than the Massdrop THX 789, so I'm staying in the drop. Also, I'd prefer to have a pure analog device in this case. The thing with that Monoprice desktop THX DAC/amp is that even the analog input is first brought into the digital domain with an ADC, so there's no way to use it purely as an analog amp.
April drop is now shipping out! Really looking forward to having a dedicated amp again. Not gonna lie though, I’m a bit concerned about how much bass I’ll be getting from my desktop rig 2.0...
I use the same cables with different connectors (RCA/XLR) to test the sound difference between the two kinds of inputs.
The input signal is not balanced.
As far as I can tell, there is difference in sound, but the difference is no larger than that possibly caused by the connectors.
And I have no preference between the two sounds, though I prefer RCA input, because it can goes through the amp and feeds my speakers.
Yep, I also got notification my April 18th order is shipping 2 weeks ahead of time.
Who would’ve thought that the Drop is still active!
I’m wondering if they can still ship them all in November.
Mine from the April Drop should be with me in two days, kinda got bend over and taken for a ride with Import Duty but kinda knew it wouldn't be cheap... I best prepare..
Massdrop THX 789, Aune S7 pro or Gustard H20 with Focal Clear?
I use Focal with chord Hugo, but I’d like a better open sound.
I received and email saying that Sales of 789 will stop tomorrow.. soo.. Get your orders in..
Incidentally mine came today.. just listening to it So much power.. (Old Design with Massdrop on the back, from April Orders)
I saw you will be in pending till 15 November if you order now
