I'm not sure where all the Texas SBAFers are (I think noticed a concentration around Austin in other posts) but I'm happy to bring along my Utopia chain(s) to a meet from Houston. Dallas would be a tough one but Austin or San Antonio is definitely do-able on a weekend. The Utopia, more than other phones I've extensively auditioned or owned, are chameleon like particularly in regards to the DAC and a bit less so to amplification. While I've not made a change to my system in a year and have no itch I completely understand why others move on from the Utopia. With so many other good choices in the flagship bracket either you really love the inherent character of the headphones and keep and optimize for it or move along to something that aligns better with your listening preferences. I use a Wavelight-3F in my leisure room and Walnut-3F in my office. I'd love for others to try it out. My wife says it's overwhelming at times and I get it. She likes listening to it only after the kids are asleep and she's not working and just relaxing. And even then she's more partial to the Grado HP2 on both chains. Ultimately, it's too finicky a headphone to keep around if there's something nagging you about it as there's a very thin line between annoying and brilliant when it comes to its sound.
