I have intensive experience with JMF stereo DAC , pre , stereo power , line conditioner & full loom cables in my friend's system that using Magico Q3 .
Me & few audiophile friends did the AB test very carefully:
- JMF dac to Burmester 001 as cdp (use as cd transport for dac) , Esoteric P-02 & D-02 , Naim 555 also Burmester 969 cdt / 970 dac.
Results: JMF dac + Burmester 969 cdt combination is better than all above digital source.
- Pre JMF better than his previous pre : FM Acoustics 255 mk. II. He was using Levinson no. 32 , Burmester & several other preamps before FMA pre.
- HQS-6002 pwr compared with Soulution 710 , Burmester 911 mk. 3 , Chord SPM-6000 monos & Accuphase A-200 monos.
HQS-6002 better in all aspects in very big margin .
- JMF power conditioner a lot better than current Torus flagship power conditioner & Burmester power conditioner.
JMF has very low noise floor , musicality that compareable to single ended triode (i'm a SET lover) , very refined & realistic sound that i never heard from other big brands.
Actually me & my friends were not expected the results since JMF was unknown before .
You won't believe if you not hear by yourself .
