    Not meant as an excuse for the Lyr's absence, just observing his lack of activity since the beginning of this year.

    I also hope he didn't bugger off with it, but didn't want to jump to the negative conclusion is all.

    Maybe he's doing a really detailed writeup of impressions?

    (God I hope this joke doesn't turn out to be in poor taste...)

    Yes, @ChaChaRealSmooth sent him/her a PM. I also tagged them in the loaner thread. They are aware...

    I kinda just realised from the thread bump by @EraserXIV: did the ZDT Jr loaner ever get back to @Vansen?

    This is why you don’t let Canadians on the loaner program. Fucking hosers.

    I’m in his city if a real life ‘Taken’ rescue mission is required.

    Sadly, occurances like this make me want to tighten up loaner rules to include friends only. Probably won't solve everything, but could at least mitigate the chances.

    The reason for no Canada is because customs is a bitch; we've lost stuff due to customs doing whatever shenanigans. This is the primary motivator for keeping units CONUS.

    Still no word? So at this point it's just sheer criminality at work and not bumbling forgetfulness?

    Do it. I think this is the second time a contributor has sat on a loaner a lot longer than it should have been. I had remarked to someone earlier that it was weird to have people who contributed like $20 or so being able to have access to gear worth at times hundreds of dollars. Probably a good idea to find other perks for those contributing money to the site.

    If customs is also a problem keeping a somewhat strict loaner timeline, then unfortunately that will have to be addressed.

    I thought @luximal was a friend prior? They had certainly been around long enough...maybe even on Changstar?

    Pretty sure I had at least a couple F/S experiences with them without incident. (Not that things can't go wrong any other time...)

    Sad that us Contributors are f'ing up the loaner program. I've tried to get in on loaners in the past, but stopped trying because I kept getting shot down (ahem, politely ignored). Now I see why...

    Contributors are OK for most loaners now and have been for some time.

    fo real, I've been in on 2 tours, I guess the higher end stuff requires higher end evaluations. We all benefit from that. It led me to my current Matrix Xsabre pro dac (non mqa) , phonitor e and Verite.
