    Interested. Just re-acquired HE-500 (big thanks to @Skyline) and have an LCD2C incoming. Will be great to compare all three.

    Why not?! Because it already crossed the Mississippi and it's NOT GOIN' BACK! Can we get @Claritas in here to help explain geography please?

    In all seriousness, if the HE-5 uses the old hfm cable connector then he can slot in before me since I'm still trying to locate my old balanced cable.

    I have this safely in my possession. It said it was delivered Monday but I didn't have it until Tuesday. Everything is in order, but my distrust for USPS grows. Looking forward to comparing to HE-500 and LCD-2C.

    I still have this. Have been experiencing work and then personal emergencies back to back that have made it functionally impossible to mail out right now. Am PMing details to @Vansen and @rtaylor76 so that this can get moving again ASAP. Apologies to @rtaylor76 and @PacoTaco for holding this up.

    being in CO, could I get squeezed in after @Hands?
    want to compare stock HE-5 to the Code-X with ZD's cool Saga+Vidar rig he loaned me.
