Do you have any other sources you can try? If so, what are they?

"Would you believe that the best match Ive heard for the $185,000/pair Magico Q7 is the $6495 Devialet 120? I know -- hard to fathom."
It is an integrated amp with internal DAC.

Oh, OK; I'm definitely up in the hundreds of hours but not in the 1000s yet.
One thing I've noticed with the 600 Integrated is it doesn't get anything more than just warm even when I play the music loud (for my small room) so it doesn't seem to be working that hard. I replaced a Modwright KWA100SE+Wyred STP-SE Pre with the Simaudio 600 and to my ears it was a sonic improvement so I don't want to flip it unless I really have to.
I'll give the pairing some more time yet; thanks for all the input!
RE: Zd542's question, no I only have the BDA2 as a source, but I found it very dynamic with the big Revels.
I own a pair of Magico S1s paired with a Modwright KWA 150 amp and Modwright pre-amp. I agree with Cdrc as well. There is quite a bit of burn in to say the least and you may wish to ask a local dealer (if you have one nearby) to audition a Pass Labs or Devialet. If you don't get more of a bass impact, then keep what you have and let the speakers burn in some more.
