    The list for participants has to stay discrete though. An audio forum involved in such recreational activities is quite remarkable...

    Discretion is definitely important, but the main thing we need to focus on is quality. Can't have any of that low-fi crap ;)

    We will get Elear either way - 100% certain given the voting. Ordering Mojo next. Mojo tour will start in the East - South.

    If you are going to the UK, or know someone who is, now is the time to get a Mojo.

    At the current exchange rate, if you get the VAT refunded the UK RRP of £399 is equivalent to about $425. At that price, unless you hate the thing the value proposition is almost inarguable.

    Not in the poll, but thought I'd throw these in to the potential mix: http://www.highfidelitycables.com/products/adapters/rca/

    Who's the real audiophool? The audiophool or the audiophool who follows him? I have heard from a friend I trust that these might actually be the real deal. :)

    Hokey religions and magnetic cables. Can you get your money back if they don't work?

    Are we at the sign-up stages for the Elear loaner yet? Don't want to miss it since it's starting on the east coast.

    I actually have been wanting to send my pair on the circuit. I have both se and balanced cable for it, but have been swamped with life lately to organize anything.

    Thanks, I'm flattered.

    I would like to, but, you know, to many dishes need to be washes, don't mention the floor sweepings, gosh, nowadays' people just love to puke on the floor so casually

    Imagine there's no heaven.

    But God saved me, from my most difficult moment, and he gave me another life, I am now a true believer.

    Guess what, my dream's becoming a 70-yr-old preacher, with bald head, shine and shiny.

    Marv et al: Don't waste money on the Mitchell and Johnson GL2SE. I have it from the Kickstarter campaign. Happy to mail it to you or to whoever that wants it first.

    BTW: I know many of you think I may be just sitting on my laurels but I am still working on getting the new Etys. The company that does the marketing in the states has not yet received their press samples so just waiting on them. I assure you they will be coming :)

    Casting my vote for HD600/650, seems like a great way for folks to develop a common frame of reference. Perhaps it can be paired with a Schiit stack to introduce an example of synergy.
