    FYI, here's an iFi survey on a amp they are thinking about developing suited for specific cans. I couple are indicated, go ahead and vote. I am assuming it's a Drop collab given the cans.

    I voted for the Fostex TR-XX0 because of the biodyna drivers. I wished there was a Fostex closed planar on the list, or even the HE5XX. Does anyone even know when the last time the Fostex TR-XX0 went on sale?

    Pure noise: this makes me miss my X00 Ebonies, haha. Might bother the friend I gave them to to vote for the TR since as hyped as they are the X00s still need more love. Sucks that they seem to have been Dropped (cough) somehow.

    P.S.
    Obvious which one I voted for lol

    For calibration purposes, we're gonna need you to qualify that statement using the following scale: :mad::confused::eek::oops::D

    I miss when Drop was a group-buy, speak with your wallet kind of place. Now it's just "here is some shit our marketing team thinks a bunch of weebs want"

    Think the intent was "(Mass)Drop minus CT equals sad face" :p

    But yeah seems like a few years back Drop had loads of stuff that was genuinely exciting that I wanted to get ears on immediately. Still some cool stuff out now but.... less frequent.

    I mean... that would be impressive if they could actually implement an EQ with slopes that steep...

    An HD800 or Utopia tuning makes the most sense for Dynamics. We only have a few select solid state amps that work well with either of them.

    I agree with this sentiment (well at least the first half).

    It does seem they're targeting the Massdrop mid-fi audience with the list and the HD6XX line is the only thing I'd bother with. Maybe bumping up the price category to include the Focal Elex would garner more interest?
