Thank you so much for sharing your heart rending story! And let me just say: "Oh dear god no!" Did you have to wait a whole 3 working days to get shipping confirmation from UPS on the first shipment? Honestly, some people these days.
This combo works remarkably well: new nano --> sr71 --> ue11... Just sayin. Peace, Graz

Well, all my gear's in order now: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f15/pi...ml#post4469027 ...and I gotta say, I don't know why I ever worried about this. The SR-71 drives the ue11's with no problems whatsoever...not having gain choices is a non-issue. The thing is spooky-dead-quiet with plenty of volume control flexibility. The only issue is the audio is still slightly audible with the knob turned all the way down...not really a big deal. That aside, I'll be sticking...
Some new gear...and really, this should just about do it. I mean it. I'm serious - ue11's just showed up last week - snagged a barely used 80gig 5.5g ipod on ebay...just finished the diymod and dropped in a new, higher capacity battery. - obligatory ALO imod dock cable Damn this rig sounds good ...and since this post is useless without pics:

The good news is that uncleaned solder mask should not affect SQ, and that poor solder joints are more likely a strength risk than a SQ...
Nice amp and nice pics... But I have to say, the solder quality actually looks rather poor. Several components are askew, and there's uncleaned flux everywhere. Obviously, it's hand-soldered, but I can't say that it's particularly well done...certainly not in line with the cost of this amp (not to mention the wait time to get one). One would think with the amount of time it takes to actually get one of these things that it would be a work of absolute perfection...
