        I keep saying they need to make an updated fully balanced model, and it would sell like mad.

        If the BW2 really does manage to get as close to the EC house sound as possible with solid state then I can see how it'd sell like ice cream in summer. If anything a new, fully-balanced version will hopefully make it easier to land an older BW2 for those who're fine with unbalanced, haha.

        It is good that BW2 is gone, so that EC has time to make new amps like Af and Studio Jr.

        I googled HD650K and got a laugh. Right, it's the kiss mod. Lol.

      Any ideas on how to determine value for a pair of 10+ year old Monitor Audio Silver 6's?

        Magic 8 ball says $350-$550 shipped for a pair. Figure 30-40% of new price or what folks advertised them for on ebay , agon. etc.

        Have you searched on hifishark and looked at the sold/expired tab? That's the easiest way I've found.

        Thanks guys. Didn't think of using Ebay. First time hearing about hifishark. I got these things second hand and they have essentially been in storage for at least seven years. Its time for someone else to enjoy them.

      Time to sell off some of the excess Schitt I have and begin saving for a proper tube amp. Have a Kenzie on the brain!

      Lyr3 arrived today! Need to spend a few hours comparing it to Sagaheim out of Gungnir Multibit. Using my desktop Bifrost Multibit so far and it sounds sweet!

        I live in SoCal so delivery from Schiit takes 1-2 days tops. As for tubes I'll spend some time listening to the stock tube until I can familiarize myself with its signature.

        Afterwards I'll try a PSVane 6SN7 that I've been using in my Saga.

        I plugged it in around 11am and just now decided to give it a listen. No complaints at all. I'm going to wait a couple of days to compare it to the Modi Multibit and Bifrost Multibit I have onhand to then decide which of the others I'll part with.

        um, if that's a new production Gungnir Multibit an easy prediction: smaller loses.

      My Worlds Best Audio (mogami 2534/ amphenol) interconnects arrived for my Bifrost Multibit/Sagaheim. These are really nice/well built cables.

        I have some mogami 2534 left. Very nice cable indeed, thicker than I thought.

        I like the flexibility. I had a mish mash of cables I had lying around that were slightly thinner and less flexible. It was time to replace them.

      Another fun part to this hobby is listening to genre's/artists you normally don't listen to. Digging me some Portishead right now!

        This is one of the albums I purchased as an high res download to see if it was worth the add'l money vs. Cd (not for me). Not a bad cut anywhere.

        A lot of good masterings on that one. 2000 (and based on the 2000) are the only digital ones that sound unfortunate. And the 2000 was dicked around with EQ rather than the usual DR travesty that is so common. (Innervisions trivia of the day.)
