    Re: MSB M500 Monoblocks

    After a week of burn in and at least an hour of critical listening each night, I think I have he measure of these amps. They do all the normal things exceedingly well as you would expect for a product in this price range. What they do better than any amp I've heard, has to do with how the sound is presented. Instruments such as piano, xylophone, drums, picked guitar, plucked bass, cymbals, anything with a percussive initial attack, EXPLODE out of the background with authority. The recording has to be good but if it is, the fast attack is truly remarkable and contributes to a level of enjoyment I have not experienced from any other variation of my system over the years. Synergy with the DAC and with the Magico tweeter contributes I'm sure but the level of speed and fidelity I'm hearing now was not present with my D'Ag's. Life is good!

    Can P20 handle those monoblocks and subs ? ( I am using P15, but I use Avantgardes and Ear 899 at the moment)

    Excellent question. Eric, are the M500’s plugged into the P20 or directly into the wall outlet?

    Thanks,

    My entire system is plugged into a P20 fed with a dedicated 20 amp circuit. The P20 is less than 50% loaded when the entire system including subs is running at my normal volume.
