Absolutely crazy good value. Doesnt add coloration. Just very clear effortless. I was on the fence about this until i took a chance on the second drop. Now on the hunt for a dac with balanced outs and rca spdif. smsl su8 pcb v1.2 or higher for delta sigma maybe. Really want a r2r dac too bad massdrop airist doesn't have balanced out.
I'm still on the fence about this amp as I already have an Aune X7S. I'm itching to get this one though given all the good reviews.
I can sympathize. i have no experience with the x7s though aune stuff looks really nice. I personally don't have a vast bank of experience with different amps. But compared to the magni 2 uber, magni 3, 02, and the stuff I tried at the schiitr this is the only amp ive used that doesn't sound like it's adding its own take on top of what the dac is feeding it. Its not brassy or shouty. It doesn't have what i call this glaring sheen with a bit of fizziness in the upper end which one of my 400i really picks up on. It so far has not sound strained with any material i played and i don't mean it just gets loud. If your budget allows you might audition it and if you don't like it just sell it on head fi or one of the other sites.
