        "Retired" doesn't mean dead and gone, it just means you don't do shit you don't enjoy to do any more, AKA "work"

        Yes! I hate when a service latches on to a few albums and quits showing me all the other stuff.

        Their focus areas are so different that it will never happen, but there's so much potential there that we can still dream.

      To be more precise, looking for a Jot with better soundstage. But I like atonal music and free jazz, too.

        Rag is your best bet for similar sound to the Jot with better stage if you wish to continue using solid-state and orthos. Most of the other amps you listed earlier have compressed staging just like the Jot.

        I suspect with the success of the Jot, that Schiit might take this architecture up the food chain and make a "super Jot" in the future...

        Still trying to decide, lots more burn-in recommended, but it's a strong competitor. Current impression is a bit more dynamic, a bit leaner, a bit less refined, but I've not been evaluating with the same amp or transducers, and burn-in incomplete. It's a keeper for my headphone setup, for sure.
