Not only Kinki Studio EX-M1 proved to be a fantastic product and nothing less, but it also easily and quickly exceeded this reporter’s expectations by proverbial mile. Early on this machine seemed to be too good to be true, but past several weeks spent with it all I can say now is that I simply couldn’t find any catch. Not even one.
Kinki Studio EX-M1 is very nicely made, performs outstandingly well, works with no issues, is visually appealing and refined in general. Put shortly, Liu has every right to be proud of this deck’s Chinese roots, whereas yours truly considers himself as lucky to be now familiar with it. The EX-M1 I easily label as the greatest discovery in its class since Job 225, but also a better machine in comparison to this Swiss, one of the very best amps currently known to me, a mandatory audition for Boenicke W8 owners and a true giant slayer with no strings attached.
