Hi John,
   Any news on how you’re getting on with the Solo and your Utopias?

Hi Mick
Yes all going well.
I was listening straight from my NDS streamer and enjoying the sound but was feeling that I was missing something and I cant really put into words what it was but the sound was missing something. Anyways I decided I needed to hear the amp and headphones through my pre-amp rather than directly from the streamer. This is how I listen to my current headphone amp.
I called John on the Loan scheme and have borrowed a din to rca converter so that I can now listen through the pre-amp and I think I'm now getting a more familiar sound and yes enjoying it more. I think I was missing the influence of the pre-amp and to my ears it now seems better.
I think it's now better than my existing Headline 2 headphone amp, there appears to be more detail and resolution. I think there's more detail in the treble and a little more definition in the bass though the mid-range (vocals) sometimes are occasionally not as pronounced (loud or perhaps prominent in the mix?) as I'm used to.
I've left the system running 24/7 for the last 24 hours as I was still sometimes picking up harshness in the presentation, which I've previously found in interconnects that have not yet properly run in.
I'm enjoying listening to the Solo and wish I'd listened to it from the pre-amp at the start. Is it significantly better than what I have and enough to justify purchase? I'm honestly not sure. I'm glad I've a few days left on the loan program. More listening required....
