    Short answer - really very well. I likewise have a Stratus - congrats (I also purchased mine from a kind Friend here).

    Longer answer will be in my impressions in a couple of days' time (I'm listening happily to the east coast loaner as I type this).

    After a day of it waiting at the UPS store, finally able to pickup the Atrium this morning and bring them to work.

    Initial thoughts on opening it up is that the headphone is much lighter than I expected...this is coming from a BW and Cocoboloo auteur being the last ZMF cans I have owned.

    Very good looking headphone and initial sound impressions are favorable. Using a Vali 2 at the office to get my first taste. Will get them on the real setup tonight!

    Don’t know if it’s too late to join, but I hear these are awesome on the FV and I’d like to see how the Atrium compares to my VC. I’m on the extreme west end of the country (Alaska)

    If I am to believe UPS, then @TomNC will have the East Coast Loaner tomorrow!

    East coast unit received today from @Ksorota. I am impressed at the first hour of listening. Thanks.

    @TomNC is ready to ship the loaner to me this week, but turns out I am on vacation for a week starting this Friday. Would it make sense to swap me with @RestoredSparda on the list and I could get after Sparta, then ship to Azimuth?

    @ChaChaRealSmooth

    So, I am running into an issue with shipping because (at least locally) UPS now requires proof of value for insurance value any higher than $100 (wtf?!). Is there a way we can get a receipt going for these?

    In the mean time, I am going to try FedEx next.

    Wait wtf? It's either a recent policy change or something.

    Let me speak to @zach915m

    Either it is recent, or I triggered their fraud detection somehow. This shop had no issues with loaner shipments in the past. Will update tomorrow with outcome from FedEx - hopefully nothing silly there.

    Did you go to a UPS store? UPS stores are all privately owned and all have their own rules and regulations. Likely this UPS store uses a third party that expensive to get insurance, and tries to avoid it by having this clause.

    Fed-Ex Office's (formerly Kinko's) are all owned by Fedex and all have the same rules and regulations. You would only have to prove the value of the item should it get lost.

    Anyways - if this isn't the case, let me know, I can make some kind of invoice or something I guess, although there was never any transaction here so it'd kind of be weird.

    Anyways, let me know!
