Do these really require an amplifier?
No, that’s why it says amp recommended lol. I do think using them balanced though, I think it helps them out
Oh okay. What do you find the advantages of running them off an amplifier are, assuming you have used them before?
They tighten up a bit, get more detailed, I think they just get more refined. This is using a m11 with the 4.4mm balanced cable that comes with the am2
Would be nice to have some 1AM2 owners chime in here
