    Apologies. No offense intended. Unfortunately I find shipping across the border to be a pain that's best avoided if possible.

    Oh, duh :)

    I'm sooooo ... tempted, but just splurged, and splurged, and splurged again :(

    New Hattor passive preamp waiting to go home with me to replace my Emotiva. New Empyrean arriving Monday.

    My nervosa is getting worse and worse!

    Honestly, I'm amazed it has lasted this long. The last one I saw (for $1800) lasted like 38 minutes from 'available' post to 'sold post'. Can't see the USB thing reducing the demand pool that much. Personally I'm driving both my DACs from my Singxer.

    I made a higher offer than the guy who got it, but the seller felt bad about not selling to the first inquirer. Fair choice, but frustrating nonetheless.

    Evidently the guy got slammed with PMs within 30 minutes of the posting. Hate to think it'll go to a system where it might not be driven well though. THX 789, Cavalli Liquid Platinum, Auralic Taurus MK 2 (mentioned in the sale thread) certainly don't remotely cut it.

    I have a small offline lead on another pair but who knows if it'll pan out.

    Don't worry my Cavalli LAu is gonna run them well.

    I was not the first to inquire but I also offered more than what he was asking. So interesting.

    @DEATHxMACHINE

    It might do a good job but I suspect the synergy will be better with your Code-X than the HE6. The difference in sensitivity is obvious and it'lI take way more than you might think as someone whose owned an HE6 (along with HE5, 4, 5LE, etc) for many years and plugged them into damn near everything I could.

    The Aficionado and Stratus, for example, are close to sufficient with the HE5 but don't nearly do as well with the HE6. It's an amp killer, but it's not just about power.

    Anyway, please report back! Looking forward to your impressions vs the Code-X.

    I offered $1050 for it. Will you be modding it? If you end up not liking it feel free to reach out if you want to exchange for my LFF HE6 - Luis actually said he prefers working on the 6-screw to the 4-screw FWIW.

    Anyway, congrats with your purchase! Back to our regularly scheduled programming...

    Geez if didn't have such a hard time getting my 4screw HE-6 into Canada I may have sold it already, but I feel like I've committed an entire ridiculous rig to it now and I wouldn't know what to do with the rest of the stack without it.
