    Anyone have a Utopia or Elex they'd be willing to send me to A/B against an ETA Proto headphone? Will pay $50 for Elex + $100 for Utopia for a period of roughly seven days. Will post impressions over in the respective thread, if that matters to anyone! Will need a balanced cable for Utopia - not for Elex.

    Here are the rules of the loaner:

    1. I will have 5-7 days with the headphones from the date I receive them.
    2. I will pay shipping both ways.
    3. I will pay a $100 royalty fee for a Utopia and $50 for an Elex.
    4. At the end of the loaner period, I will post no less than 1000 words comparing the ETA Proto and Utopia.
    5. The headphones will be tested on a ECP 3F and Bifrost 2 fed by a USbridge Sig with Shanti power supply.

    If you're interested, I can also throw in the HD 540 600 ohm as a loaner for a bit of a swap if the person loaning me the Focal is interested.
