Last week I drove 250km to audition the Magico V2. The V2's were driven by the awesome Soulution 720 preamp and 710 power amp. The source used was a Soulution 745 disc player. Needless to say, the sound was GREAT.....but I sat there in the auditioning chair like a rock. To my surprise, I found myself unmoved and unstirred. By the 4th CD, I started to get bored. I felt almost none of the wonderful emotions I got when I auditioned the Avantgarde Uno G2 driven by Audio Note Meishu SET amp.
Should this experience be conclusive and enough for me to make my decision to go for the Avantgarde? Should I further explore the V2 with other amps? Unfortunately the Magico dealer (the only one in my country) that I visited carries only a couple of brands of amps (which are not in my shortlist) so it's impossible for me to listen to the V2 with the ones I'm interested in - Pass XA.5 series or Spectral.
