Re: So I did a back to back comparison; audiopipe 30001d and DD M1C
It probably didn't "tickle your ears" quite the same way because there was no clipping or distortion. Some people like to hear that and don't really realize what it is.
What matters is, you like the shittier amp more, so you can save money. And someone else can get some use out of the nice amp. It's a win-win.
