Capable of a great deal of peace when it is requested, it does not get totally the best in this area. his real strength lies in a muscular sound, although organic with a small touch but not too salty. Great detail and a very impressive dynamics. Result you reach with an impedance adjustment around 50 Ohms (you even have the right to spend a bit below if you wish).
Lovers "sound Van den Hul" them, will settle more readily than 200 Ohms (see more) to even out a bit more analysis and remove the earthy side in the bottom, but then riding with sounds dangerously flirting those with a CD player and I do not like necessarily.
In all cases, splendid definition of mediums, excellent sound stage, either in depth or width.
Overall, a very good cell for rock, pop, (metal), electronica and jazz.
This unit is further responsive, very strongly in different settings VTA, which leads to experimentation to find "his thing."
The two year warranty is too little and put on par with a toaster and a microwave oven. I find also that the manufacturer does not clearly communicate if rebates / discounts are possible in case of cell change after a period of wear. Some do. A look for when buying.
