OOOH! How does the 2-cherry compare to the STM King? Really considering getting a 2-cherry instead.
They are very similar audio performance wise (same power output, same damping factor, same "sonic ability", and same sweet Cherry Sound
), but 2-CHerry has lower THD+N. The STM MK2 is very close to 2-CHerry performance, since THD+N figures are much closer. More about the STM MK2:https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=165498.0
However, consider that the STM has a volume control, sleep mode select, and two selectable inputs (balanced and single ended). The Stereo Maraschino is also stackable
with Cherry DAC DACs, Cherry USBs, and the 60V 1kW power supply (see photos).
