Well, a revolutionary headphone amplifier for USD 350,- that nobody has heard, not been tested anywhere for delivery in October...
I think patience is the key word here - I will wait for some reviews . I will be surprised if it can compete with serious amplifiers like the Auralic Taurus II or the Violectric V281.
Measurement were posted earlier in the discussion which show performance, unless you think THX are fudging their results
Well, if measurements were the only criteria for sound quality why bother with listening tests?
Fortunately , this is note the case. Musical emotion and fidelity does not necessarely correspond with measurements. Even the cheapest, unmusical and harsh class D amplifier measure better than all the tubed amplifiers out there regardless of price.
I would like to see some serious reviews before I place an order.
(If an offer seems to be too good to be true, it usually is.)
Please send a sample to AudioScienceReview, Amir there will do it justice if it is indeed great.
SBAF is really a crapforum, and they actually have a thread just bashing this amp for being a joke and not as good as Schiit products even though none of them have heard it.
They are so far up Schiit's ass it's hilarious. SBAF really doesn't want to admit that they like the sound of distortion and compression
Or better yet, how about sending a sample to Tyll Hertsens or John Atkinson. They both have reviewed Massdrop products before and have enough industry knowledge and experience to shed light on this products abilities objectively.
Jude has a sample over at Head-Fi and should have just gotten his Audio Precision analyzer back from an upgrade...I'll check in with him. :)
Tyll is not into reviewing amps these days, unfortunately!
lol. Pretty much what the others said, Super Best Audio friends is a pretty bad place. Nothing people say on there can be trusted for objectivity.
yea, SBAF is almost as bad as head-fi, look out for those fan boy reviews and sample seekers.
curious which model does he have?
Sadly Jude is not a trusted source, he is just as corrupted as SBAF. The shunning/manipulation of information at Head-Fi is rampant. Whatever he writes will be based on how much money he is paid.
So who is a trusted source then?
Why do you say SBAF is corrupt ?
Are we ever going to hear some info on how this sounds, before we get this?
There's info out there already. There are links in this thread with previews of proto units that were sent out with more previews to be incoming.
Are you talking about the monoprice variant?
Jude is working on a review right now. Stay tuned!
