Have you got 6 x AA Eneloop Pro batteries ready? This is a phenomenal amplifier by Mass-Kobo that delivers clean clarity and the power you need for almost every can out there. All amplification alters the sound of your set up and this one your top-grade sushi knife slicing through a nice big slab of freshest catch (no offense intended for vegans) and you're ready to have your kaiseiki playlist of the day. It's smooth, sharp without hiss, delivering a sweetness to your music. We compared this to the MK394ii which is pitched lower in voice, tagged higher in price. It's day and night in character while retaining the same clean power that Mass-Kobo is renowned for. This is dawn, while the 394ii is dusk.Portable enough for travel and effortlessly sufficient for small desks or bedside rigs to power up cans like the Audio-Technica ADX5000, Final Audio D8000Pro, Abyss, Audezes, and Hifiman's entire line-up. Note: You can plug in to power, but we recommend using six AA batteries to remove the possibility of background noise coming from unclean power sources.
