Perfectly executed products. I'm delighted!!!
So I've had the privilege of listening to @fls.audio 's SuSy Dynahi and I have to say it is one of the most unique sounding amps I've ever heard. I spent a good chunk of time comparing it to my friend's Traformatic Primavera and the way each amp presents sounds is so drastically different you would think there was some DSP being applied to one of the amps or that you were listening to different headphones. Can probably post more impressions if there's interest. Most of the comparisons were done listening to the utopia, susvara, HD800 SDR mod though I did compare the LCD4's, D8000 and HE1000v1 as well.
Which did you like better?
I know the Traformatic Primavera is like $15,000, so was the comparison anywhere close?
So I looked into it a bit because it just sounded so different and apparently the XLR output on mine is out of phase which is why it sounded so different. I've since been listening to the dual 3 pin XLR and in comparison to the primavera, it's really hard to choose which I think sounds better since they are pretty different.
The primavera obviously has more features, impedance matching, etc. and is not lacking in power for any of the headphones we tested. I found that in terms of depth and microdetails, the primavera had a slight edge over the dynahi but the dynahi had better dynamics and macrodetail. The dynahi sounds a bit more open too, whereas the primavera sounds like it has a more defined space, if that makes sense. I'll probably get more time to demo the two later and will post impressions.
