I just got done inserting the Mytek 192 into my office headphone rig. Haven't updated my profile yet, but here is a quick description:   2012 Mac mini w/ 16gb RAM External 2tb RAID array over USB 2.0 Audirvana+ 1.46 in integrated mode Mytek over Firewire Cavalli Liquid Fire Headphone amp Audeze LCD-2   Before today, I had the Mytek in my home audio system, listening to it side-by-side with a PS Audio PWD MkII and a Lumin Player, both...
Sold. Thanks Mike.
Sale pending.
My PS Audio DL III w/ Cullen Mod IV and Audiophilioe Model 1 need a home where they will be loved. They formed the basis of my office headphone listening rig, but have had no use for about a year now. Prior to that, they had approximately 300-400 hours on them. I can post additional pics, if there is any interest. I believe I have all original boxes, and will include all original bits. Model 1 does not have the PurePower upgrade.   Asking $875 total, for the entire...
I am quite entranced by the speed and depth of bass in the Cavalli Liquid Fire.

First listening impressions, with no additional break-in time. Running Mac mini-->Audiophileo Model 1-->PS Audio DAC w/ Cullen Stage IV mods-->Audez'e LCD-2 plugged into outlet 1:   Cuts:   1. First 12 minutes of Moonlight Acoustica; 2. Telarc recording of Robert Shaw's performance of Verdi's Requiem [handled the big drums with aplomb, unlike the Apache. Horns and woodwinds a touch more detailed, but not quite as fulsome as Taboo]; 3. DVD-Audio of 20th...
Nothing obvious, USA. Alex had apprised the additional cooling holes in previous correspondence, so that wasn't a surprise. All else appears as expected.
Mine has been delivered. Gorgeous indeed. As far as I have gotten.  
Amps are going out Tuesday, July 5. Perhaps better than sitting in a FedEx sort facility over the long weekend.
