Could you stack the SP200 on top of it and show us how it stacks up? The M400 seems very deep and the SP200 would look ridiculous on top of it. How's the pairing with the SP200 by the way?
the top side of m400 looks very weak to scratch, so it is not a good thing to stack it. but yes, I think it is not fit. the size is very different. I am waiting a SP400.

however, the sound, it’s nice work. detailed, silky sound. nice deep bass but the punch is little light. depth of sound stage is good, but width is not wide for me.

I think it will look weird since the sp200 has a slant. I think it's supposed to go with the m200 which also has a slant and the m400 is going to go with the sp400 coming out next month.

it arrived. looks pretty. nice green logo on top. I heard the sp400 is coming soon, maybe next month? but I can’t find any picture of it. does anyone knows?
Any chance you could take some pics of the menu's and display?
Does it have any coloration filters (ie warm, crystal, tube)? Does the volume indicator (large numbers) get smaller?
Can it change any of display settings? How does it look when you play an MQA title from Tidal?

Curious thanks!

it has only DAC filters. No, it doesn't change font size. I can adjust the brightness. I don't use Tidal, so I can't check it. :)

Awesome thank you. One of the first people to give us insight into the new DAC. Cheers.

Seperate DSD filters and Audio Phase look interesting.

Also looks like they sourced a better display. Does the color change on different viewing angles -- the black get lighter?

It doesn't change. It's not good as iPhone, but enough to check the status. Only one thing I want is the option to turn off the display.

Supposedly the M200 menu is bad and $800 for the m400 DAC is a bit much, MQA must be pricey! I'll stick with my TEAC and SU-8 for now.

[QUOTE = "1000ROUNDZ, post: 412408, membre: 15378"] Pourriez-vous empiler le SP200 dessus et nous montrer comment il se superpose? Le M400 semble très profond et le SP200 aurait l'air ridicule par-dessus. Comment se passe l'appairage avec le SP200 en passant? [/ QUOTE]

Something I'll never understand :D I'd first upgrade my headphones before buying state of the art gear.
