How would you compare this to the SMSL SP200? SP200 @ $289.99 vs THX 789 @ $299 I do like the pre-amp options on this vs the SP200. I JUST ordered the SP200 with a SMSL M200 dac. This will be my set up for a long time any help won’t be appreciated. I’m willing to cancel the SMSL bundle if the 789 is worth the extra.
Hey @rastus, thank you very much for your response!! This will be my first and last amp for a while and due to my lack of experience so I have no idea what I’m looking at. Would you please be able to explain it?
I have been looking at a dedicated solid state HP amp for some time, the drop 789 is a choice that I have considered, along with units such as the Audio-gd Master-9 (while dreaming, the HE-9). I appreciate seeing the the engineering thought that went into the drop 789 design, most insightfully by reading the responses from Andrew, plus way too many other blogs & reviews. https://drop.com/profile/AndrewMason/about
For $299 today, you become a beneficiary, of a great collaborative effort.
Both look to be great units, no wrong choice here, and a matching stack is nice too... in either direction (tilt;). The drop R-2R will be back, in some form.
