Me too, I have the 1st generation amp. The built is solid with thick CNC casing, about 30kg+ weight. The sound is very clean, detail, and neutral. In my opinion, it is better than the Job pre/225 that I have owned before. I believe this new version will be an improvement.

I have the EX-M1 for about 2 weeks with about 50 hours of playtime, the sound is amazing for the price. Its a great jump from the 1st gen kinki and my previous Job pre/225. The sound is refine, dynamic, with good bass transient. The sound is neutral, not warm at all but very musical, full body. I hear a lot of micro details from my music collection that I did not notice before. I will keep this amp for a long time.

This thread deserves more attention man! Just like the Denafrips, Alvin has brought in yet another brand that performs way above what the asking price suggests.

I'm a proud new owner of this MIC Kinki Dac and Amp.. absolutely loving it so far!
