Cute little hybrid amp
Decent little headphone amplifier for the money. Not a giant killer but solid price to performance.

It is a 79 dollar tube amp... Don't expect much and to be honest I prepared myself but I was surprised at how weak it is. I used my borderpatrol DAC SE with all amps. I tested o2 amp, schiit lyr v1, element amp, and the sp100. I also tested e-mu teak, focal elear, he-4xx, he-500, and a q701. The q701 sounded fine (bass wise) with the sp100 but every other headphone felt like it was held back. The hifiman headphones I had to crank the volume wayyy up to get same volume on the others. Bass was just lacking on all headphones with this amp and details are less (Feels muffled). It sound anemic compared to my other amps especially on the he headphones with the shiit lyr. If the sp100 is your first amp then you will most likely be happy and not notice the characteristics i noticed (at least not to the same degree). But once you experience something with more oomph/clarity then you can tell the sp100 has limits (im hoping its the cheap stock tube). For example, Quincy Jones's Moonglow is spectacular to listen too... But on the sp100 it feels somewhat muted and muffled. It is harder to identify all the sounds, you have to focus while on say my schiit lyr im bombarded with sounds of instruments. On Body and Soul with Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse... Amy has this super luscious juicy voice that is lost and muted on the sp100.... Note: I have ordered a bunch of quality tubes NOS and new. I will report back when i test them. I have been pleasantly surprised before by changing stock chinese tubes before so I'm hoping its the same experience here.

Can you describe the changes the amp brought to your m40xs, both at stock and after tube rolling? I'm considering that amp for that specific headphones

More reverb mostly, but also a punchy bass. I added the m100 dac also, seemed to add some volume.
