        My wife refers to these as my "piles" which result from my "audio shenanigans."

      Spring KTE 3 burn-in proceeds, makes Jot show great jazz drum & cymbal detail

      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.

        Did you say shower? Now you will receive ads on heAD-fi for shower curtains, shower caps and shower gel.

        You need to purchase cryo treated litz shower cables, and swap out the integrated valves in your tap for external discrete valves for better quality shower.

        Then shower with dollar store soaps.

        shower-Fi!
