- Amazing Performance!
As usual, I let the amp burn for at least 100+ hours. At least on an 7-8 hours interval a day or when I sleep at night.
Testing gear(s): ATH-M50x, Foobar2000, PC Gaming Rig with Asus Xonar Soundcard.
Playing Joan Baez - Diamonds and Rust
ATH-M50x - OMG! What a wide soundstage! The depth is very good, instruments separation is excellent, and Joan voice is sweet. In my opinion, the details are amazing!
Playing Black Eyed Peas - Rock Your Body
ATH-M50x - Bass is pretty well-defined. Once again the feeling is as if I'm standing in a discothèque! Not bad I would say. Never thought ATH-M50x could sound so fun with this amp!
Playing Imogen - Hide and Seek
ATH-M50x - Gosh! The openness and the dynamics are good. The music enveloping the space of my head is warpingly fantastic! Usually this song would bother me with its dynamic but not in this testing!
Playing Mark Keali'i Ho'omalu - He Mele No Lilo
ATH-M50x - The sound staging and the ambience well presented. I'm simply loving the tribal drums sound. Excellent once again!
Playing Norah Jones - Don't Know Why
ATH-M50x - Holy cow! Norah Jones is singing right in front of me in a stage performance! How can I describe this...
Playing Radiohead - Packt Like Sardines In A Crushd Tin Box
ATH-M50x - Bass can be heard and it's very punchy - steel drums sound is good - electric sound is electrifying - instrument sounds' separation very distinct! I'm loving this already!
Sound is warm and neutral and it's pleasant for longer listening. And there is no fatiguing even after 2 hours. I'm thoroughly enjoying my music and movie collection. Did I mention that the performance is even better when using USB-DAC? It's pristinely heavenly!. And on top of that, I got this at a sale price! So far under $300 this amp is amazing!
