    Probably just some low level customer service schlub who spoke wildly out of turn.

    Not honoring warranty would be *terribly* bad form. Worst case you can ever expect from buying from a non-authorised dealer would be like my situation where I bought my Clear from headphones.com; Focal Canada probably won't honor the warranty, but I'd have to send them to Focal USA.

    In retail Audio, I expect 100% markups.

    Qobuz has summer deals until end of August, some 30-80% on many music downloads. You don’t have to be a streaming customer to buy at their shop.

    Not sure if this is available all around the world.

    I followed up out of curiosity; your prediction turned out to be right:

    Did the LP DAC actually drop down to $300? I am see $379 now but it has been dropping fast. Was $509 a couple days ago, then $400 this morning. Have been trying to keep an eye out as I am curious to try the LP stack for the hell of it.

    @mk801 you were prophetic, the LP DAC is down to $299 now. Time to see if they cooked up anything interesting with that one.

    Yeah, the question is, is it better than the Modi MB 2?

    I thought Cavalli was strictly an amp guy. Who designed the dac under his name?

    Cavalli was involved with all the products and the internal designs with his name. He is clear about this in the LP threads on HF.

    Black Shanling ET3 for $699 from The Hifi Cat with discount code UP10 at checkout. I just ordered one to compare to Urd. :punk:

    https://thehificat.com/products/shanling-et3-cd

    FYI, I asked and they ship direct from China and estimate around 5 days delivery to the US, so not too long of a wait.

    I just ordered a pair last night, couldn't pass on the deal to try out an AMT driver. Just a heads up, Monoprice has a $25 off code right now (25BTS). I got my set for $291.49 shipped.


    EDIT: It appears to be all sold out now.
