    I used to have one of these: Meier Corda Aria
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/266495935326

    Solid little unit back before Jan Meier changed to his cheaper casework. Crossfeed back in the days before crossfeed was even a thing on headphone amps, as Jan is kinda like one of the grandfathers of implementing it.

    Here is something interesting. It's a DIY parafeed amplifier for $1000 based around the D3A tube and somewhat similar to the Bottlehead Mainline and Papa Rusa amplifiers.

    I actually don't really know what to make of this, but it's so unique I thought I'd post about it. Can someone who is more technically savvy comment about it's design and parts? FWIW, this builder seems to have made a few other amps in the past here, here, and here.

    How much can it be bought for new? Everyone knows Hifiman MSRP is just for show with dealers.

    This one looks really quite cool. If it were something within Europe I'd be very tempted although $1000 used might still be a bit steep..?

    Several Oors for around $1350 currently (as of 12/1), including an Oor and Hypsos stack for 1900EUR: https://www.hifishark.com/search?q=ferrum+oor

    Dangerously close to the 65% MSRP rule-of-thumb for used audio (and my personal buy point of 60%). Maybe a boon from the recent fervor around the Mjolnir 3, but the Oor is a good deal smaller and pretty competent in its own right.
