      I'm not exactly sure yet, since Jason only hinted/teased us just recently w/ it...
      Quote: "Sure, there may be a place in the line for another amp (eventually—what about a 25W class A amp in a Vidar chassis that does 200W into 4 Ohms mono, just throwing that out there…), and sure, one of the products may need an Update" — Mr. Stoddard"
      Me & @cskippy discussed it in further detail on his latest Profile Feed, see there.

      For many decades, I figured if I had a system on which I could enjoy both 'Kink Kronikles' (unfortunate sound) and 'Uncle Meat' (out of this world sound) LPs I was in a sweet spot as far as equipment went. That simple rule of thumb served me well. And I bought a ton of music.

      A lot of people say we care more about gear than music. However I am not so sure the average person cares more about music when they just listen at the gym or in the background to distract them from whatever drudgery they are experiencing.

      @JustAnotherRando - I went to the DIY forum the other day and saw a thread on a DIY Stax amp. Some genius said "How does this compare to the O2?"

      The hotheads will eventually run out of steam and people will be talking about how the new revision sounds great and is worth every penny. (I assume it does since Schiit bothered to release it.)

      No, but I’ve heard of Tubes picking up radio signals. This is basically the transformer playing the music fed into the amp from the gumby. It was very puzzling at first
