    Why then do you need the mini when you have it's big brother?

    That's the GS-X Mk2...the GL MK2 is the Gilmore Light (a fantastic amp as well).

    Oooops missed that. I need a nap!

    No worries. :)

    I find the GS-X Mk2 a bit more detailed, but the GS-X Mini is a bit fuller sounding with a touch of welcomed warmth. The GL Mk2 is a fantastic amplifier and my go to recommendation for a great SS amp under $500. Overall, I think I prefer the GS-X Mini overall personally.

    I have the GLMk2 right now and Im pretty satisfied with the performance, what can I expect if I make the juimp to the GSX Mini? Which areas are improved?
     
  7. MacedonianHero Contributor
    Bigger sound staging, tighter bass control with better dynamics and improved detail retrieval. Definitely worth saving up for!

    Wow, good to know. Good reviews by the way! When will you come out with your mini review?

    I set up a green GS-X mini with one of our KANN Cubes and the brand new 5-pin XLR line out cable that just came in. Great desktop/portable system :)

    How about a photo of the setup you had at CanJam NY - Mytek Brooklyn Bridge (or Brooklyn+) connected to the GS-X mini.
    That was one hell of a compact desktop system

    What a versatile setup, right there!

    @justin w. or anyone else who can chime in...Would the mini be okay for sensitive iem's like Campfire Andromeda? Or would there be hiss?
     
  14. HeadAmpTeam
    Hey Matt, no hiss with my JH Layla or several other IEM's I've tried.

    Thank you for that. I don't have any experience with the Layla. I know that the Andromeda is super sensitive so if someone has specifically tried it with the mini please let me know.
