    Pro iDSD. Tube output stage. Yummy. I didn't even know such a product existed.

    Custom filters and low and high feedback settings for tubes.

    I am. I've considered bugging you for a review loaner but I'm slowly reviewing a couple other things right now.

    Interested as well. Was in the C2 loaner recently and it piqued my interest. Sign me up if you are able to assist us with a loaner. Thanks in advance!

    Alright, so here's where we're at currently: the nfo was passed yesterday to our main people and we have a mildly firm green light.

    Now it'd be good to make a thread re tour and gather all interested people, set some basic rules, figure out logistics and make it all happen.

    We have no idea what we can/can't do at SBAF as a MOT. Any insight is appreciated!

    You are doing good. Your just hangin' with the guys here while being respectful to our particular ways has been noticed by everyone. This is key. Taking the time to establish relationships with the members.

    There is a general non-sponsor vendor section where you can make product announcements. That might be helpful. It's hard to me to keep track of everything, e.g., the hybrid amps, tube DACs, estat energizers that you guys have come out with. I'm usually late to the party in terms of iFi gear.

    @mscott58 I haven't received any messages from @iFi audio.

    I don't want to keep cluttering the Convert-2 thread with these posts; could one of the mods move these past some posts to a new thread?

    Many thanks. We're doing our best to be cool cats in every place we show up. Yes, we are from the industry and yes, some of our actions are marketing related, which is hardly any surprise to anyone :p But interactions with forum people is what we do because to us audio is a hobby thing more than anything else. Many of our staff are deep into it as well and luckily we were able to turn it into our daily job.

    Weekend's over, so we'll get that tour thing going shortly. Apologies for derailing this thread. We'll be hopefully seeing all interested folks in the new one. Thanks!

    This chain is one hell of a way to get energized on a Wednesday morning.

    Slam that can make you flinch. More impressions and comparisons to come.

    I've completed measurements on the following but not found the time to post (it takes several hours per measurement suite to post):
    Fulla2
    DM Convert2
    Crane Song Solaris

    Measurements in progress, time permitting:
    RME ADI-2 Pro
    Lavry DA11
    Matrix X-Sabre Pro
    EC Designs Mos24

    Amps in progress:
    ECP Audio T4

    All of this takes back seat to corporate projects which pay the bills. Going through a busy project cycle right now.
