Can anyone confirm how the m9XX's display dimmer function works? Looking through the manual states that, when activated, the 7-segment display will turn off after 5 seconds of inactivity. I interpret this to mean the whole display turns off (which would be my preference); however, I've seen pictures of the device with a single decimal point illuminated so I'm a little unsure as to how the feature behaves.
A single decimal point remains when dim is activated. It's a great DAC/Amp from a reputable company. I love mine. Very clean very quite noise floor. Drives my HD650, HE-400, Fostex TH-X00, AKG 7xx, Sony MDR-MA900...etc. All Very well. I am pleased. But there is a decimal point. I hope thats not a deal breaker for you because its a great amp... Did I say that.
Got the Fostex TH-X00 and driving them now with the Musical Fidelity Y90-HPA. Considering the upgrade to this wonderful beast of a DAC/AMP. Also considering the 336SE OTL Darkvoice, which, I presume, would be a totally different experience. I know this sounds stupid, but I'm not sure I'd be totally satisfied with tubes, knowing they distort the signal, regardless of how good they would sound. Being an audiophile, to me, means a quest to find the best gear to reproduce the audio signal as it was recorded, or at least how it was meant to be listened to. I believe this piece of hardware would be pretty close to achieving my goal. *sigh* Decisions, decisions. P.S. What is the small display even for?
The display shows the volume level on a dB scale as well as some setup menu options. If reference audio playback is what you are after, the m9xx would fit the bill perfectly.
Thanks for the info, and yes, I agree the m9xx would probably be my best bet. How could anyone go wrong with that machine?
