I purchased one from an earlier drop last year. I've only had a chance to listen very recently, however.
Am I the only one who is a little underwhelmed by the sonic performance?
I don't know why, but music played through this doesn't have enough grunt. Not enough bass foundation and drive. It sound kind of breathless and lightweight.
I've been using it as a bedside amp. Therefore, the cans I've used are on-ear types (to facilitate lying on a pillow). My current set is the Sennheiser Amperior. I've also tried it with the Martin Logan Mikros 90, and the Audio Technica ATH-ESW9A. I get the same kind of lightweight, breathless sound with all of them.
Am I missing something? I've tried it with all the various filter settings. While that did change the sound, the basic sound remained the same.
I also have the Teac UD-501 and UD-503 DAC/amps, and those are much more satisfactory to my ear.
Is there something else I should be aware of, or is this just how the m9xx sound?
I must say, it's been a bit of a disappointment.
