I hate the word “endgame”. It sounds so hyper-masculine to me which I find exhausting and cringy. But this amp, this is an end gamer for me. The term just fits. I own the Chord Hugo TT2 and many, many other amps and DAPs. The CMA 15 simply is the best of them all when all things are taken into consideration (sound quality, user interface, “bugginess”, cost, etc). The sound is simply superb. I’m a musician first, juvenile audiophile second (more of a hobbyist/collector) so I refrain from using jargon in my reviews, but the SQ is equal or exceeds that of products I own that cost twice as much such as Chord who in my opinion kind of gets a free pass in letting their (expensive) products have **annoying** bugs that I would not normally accept from products in that price tier. If it wasn’t for the fact that I purchased all my gear from Bloom, my TT2 would have gone straight back to the shop after getting the CMA 15. Based strictly on SQ and value, the CMA is the clear winner in my book.
