Ok… Been listening for about a week now, Sprout100 was money well spent imo.
I have Micca RB42’s and DIY Overnight Sensation speakers… They both sound equally great. Definitely a step up from my tone board and Mica Origain. I do not have exp with anything else so it is difficult to compare to anything else. My 2 sets of speakers sound great (to me). I listened to EDM, Acoustic, Rock, Metal, Blues…
I only have 1 pair of headphones, the HD58X’s. They also sound a step up from my Micca Origen and ifi nano bl. They are cleaner and less fatiguing at a higher volume level. I thought the HD58X were great already. The sprout100 really made them even better (to me). Really curious how the Sprout and the 789 will compare once i get my 789.
Bottom line, Zero regret for spending $600 for this product.
