    I saw the price drop on Reddit and head-fi and I checked Amazon before posting but that didn't last long, I edited my post.

    Not that I'm aware of but I can only hope that's the case (in a slightly smaller shell) so that used prices drop a bit or at least allow used units to become more readily available.

    Arun, you will realize why this is so not a deal if you listen to the X long enough, IMO. I owned one for two years, sold mine at 850 on SBAF last year (now that was a deal). The drivers failed when it reached him. Typical Audez’e.

    Not much love for lcd-x here I guess. I'm not thinking of buy one anyway; just thought it would be useful to those who love lcd-x sound (and are okay with driver failures)

    Code RMAF2017 for 10 % off Campfire Audio plus free lightning litz cable at ALO audio.

    edit: What a weird promo ad. The whole thing is an ad for Campfire Audio. But at the bottom it says excludes Campfire Audio earphones. Sorry guys.

    First gen VPI Scout, 1500.00 w/ cart, but seller is willing to sell deck w/o cart for 1100.00, no pay pal or shipping fees(!) These early Scouts are simple, but musical, TTs, and this one has a good back story, at a very good price. To my mind one of HW's best creations.I don't see it lasting the day, unless people don't read the ad copy to find the no-cart/no fee price.

    No affiliation, blah blah

    This apparently does not apply to Andromeda.

    I think it's time I finally try the Andromeda.

    Does anyone know if ALO has the same 14 day money back guarantee that buying direct from Campfire has? (On the slim chance I don't like it, or can't get a good fit)

    Edit: Shit, didn't see the post above.

    The email I got about this sale says at the bottom that it "excludes Campfire Earphones"

    Thank you for sharing! Just as an FYI to any onlookers, there is a dedicated thread for deals on used gear as well http://superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/used-deals-thread.1655/

    Eventide is offering their awesome EQuivocate EQ VST plugin for Free until October 31, 17. Regular Price is $99 USD. I use it with JRiver MC 23 (probably works with Foobar as well , but I have not tried it with Foobar) and even though it is a Mastering EQ, there are tons of presets (or create your own) and it sounds very good (can't beat the price either). REad more and download here:

    Or you can of course purchase our Schiit Loki, which is a deal for $149.99.

    I was searching around Eventide some more and found something Vinyl lovers might like called...ahem....Vinyl. It's free for a limited time.

    Vinyl is a plug-in that lets you simulate the dust, scratches, and warp of a worn record and the electrical and mechanical noise of the turntable it’s on.

    Give fresh recordings and instrument tracks the dirty, dusty feel of an earlier decade. Apply Vinyl to any source audio to make it sound as if it’s being played from a record and dial in exactly the right character to suit your tune. Plus, it’s now updated to 64-bit!
