Hey peeps,

haha i have a mustang vs preddy topic below but i figure if i were to compare it to a new amp i might as well set up a new topic.

Anyway, its been narrowed down to the mustang or the pico. Im using a rather sensitive IEM with a pretty balanced amount of each frequency, maybe requiring a bit more on the mids. Im using these mostly for portable purposes, so yeah

also, is it possible to couple the amp with an external dac? (eg. Computer->dac->amp->earphones) Would that mess up the sound?

What do you all think about the SQ of these two compared side by side?

The Mustang will tend to enhance the mids compared to Pico. This is from memory, I no longer own either amp. Using a DAC from your PC then into the amp will sound great.

I don't have a Mustang, but I do have a Tomahawk and a Pico. The Tomahawk sounds darker and the soundstage is a little further and has very good depth. The Pico is airier, more liquid, closer soundstage, very detailed.

I liked the Pico better. Pico had more power and drove HD650 better, no question. I had the Pico w/ DAC and only sold it to fund a HP. I liked the Pico SQ better overall. I also thought it has better build quality and is classier looking.

does anyone have both pico and mustang to tell us the differences? i think its almost the same....difficult to say which one is better...for the looks pico wins ofcourse...
