It’s on par with the other Massdrop Amps (THX AAA 789, Cavalli Tube Hybrid, and Cavalli Liquid Carbon X). All three are definitely worth purchasing and each have advantages when used with certain headphones.
Very disappointing that after a couple months of use it has died. Red light never turns to white. Nothing and after placing this order in March 2018 and waiting until November 2018 for delivery makes me reconsider ever purchasing from Massdrop again. Customer service (Damien ) actually offered me $25 to just keep it as a high priced paper weight ?Replace it with basically no warranty or a refund. Beyond dissatisfied
Customer service sent a replacement and so far it’s working great. I just hope it stays working.
Out of curiosity, did you use one DAC for all three Amps?
No, it's way better than the than the other Massdrop amplifiers.
Possibly but it’s still the pairing of the right headphones that matters to me. But that’s just my opinion.
what do you prefer for the 6xx?
I will get back to you as soon as possible with an answer. I haven’t listened to my 6XX in a long time but I will compare using them tonight.
I was leaning towards the CTH because of the tube. Curious to see what you enjoy, thanks!
The liquid Carbon is the one that seems to have the most power when using certain headphones with the balanced connection. The Hybrid seems to help with Headphones that are a little too bright. The THX seems clear and needs to be set on high gain but I’m still getting used to it.
The liquid carbon doesn't have even near the output of the THX AAA so....
I did say with certain headphones and with a balanced connection. It’s also just an opinion based on my experience with all three.
After about an hour and a half going back and forth with all three In My Opinion, I would say you would be fine with the CTH however the THX AAA seems to sound the clearest and has the strongest response with the 6XX.
I hope that helps a little as I feel I am giving you my honest opinion. You may not feel the same. I also listen to mostly Jazz where I can hear multiple instruments. Good luck with your decision.
That black stack is hot!
Good job sir!
Awesome, thanks for the feedback. Appreciate it!
Anytime. Just a little more time today using the Beyerdynamic Amiron Home Headphones with all three Amplifiers and with them being a brighter Headphone than the 6XX I found the Cavalli Tube Hybrid amp to be the better pairing as the bright highs were smoother and made for a better listening experience. Again just my opinion.
this is what im talking.. about ..pictures you got it..and not bullshitn..so whats the status on your warranty or drop..about to cancel if they don't honor..make sure you keep commenting so people see this...
They were great. They sent me another and the only thing I was a little bothered by was the year warranty doesn’t start with the new one. It continued from the original date of purchase which is normal but I had asked if they would extend from the date of the second unit. Customer service said that they couldn’t but so far the new one works great.
