    i look forward to when you have enough time with it to contrast it with some other amps you have.
    Thanks Mike. With the MSB DAC's, it's the best match hands down compared to anything we've tried. Like I said above, the amp completely sounds like the Select II.

It's absolutely perfect for the MSB DAC's. The amp sounds like the Select II DAC. Period. That's the review of this amp in a nutshell.
    I listened to M500 directly connected with Select DAC in 2 systems.
    For both of them I liked the middle gain more.
    The volume of the Select was in the 70+.
