  You've completely misunderstood my statements.     China has hosted some of the biggest, greatest and highest civilizations mankind has ever seen. And so did England, Italy, Mexico, Greece, Irak... Each had its golden age... But the fact that  ancient romans did rule the world does not mean I would invest in an Italian spaceship manufacturer. These shoes will likely last forever though.   Try a pair of Italian schoes. Try a pair of sweatshop shoes. Keep them on for 48...
  Well, I think that making an SS version of the statement amp does make sense.   Relay-switched stepped volume control makes a significant technical upgrade, as each relay is matched. And I don't think it's the only upgrade that is gonna come.           I'm not American, but Made in the USA means know-how.   ...As for French wines, Russian dancers, Italian shoes, Japanese samurai swords or whatever else has been made in the same wherever since centuries ago.   Never...
The best performance possible given the technology available.
Thanks for the update, Jason. I can't wait to see it.
So it seems that the statement amp will be optionally SS or hybrid... Glad to hear that...
relay-switched stepped attenuation, no flashy monitor, SS option, pre-amp out, I am definitely waiting for the statement.
Man, as it is built, the Gungnir itself could cost 2000$ and be worth every penny.   Find me a DAC with clock regeneration, separate 44.1 and 48 KHz multiples clocks, double DAC stages, balanced FET output stages... and if you are able to, tell the price.   Or if you wish, find me an headphone amplifier with 8 power supply stages and 8 single gain stages in parallel push-pull.   ...And... Everything Op-Amp free.   Made in the USA.     I could name both audiophile and pro...
Sure it'd help with the heat thing, but... I'd never part from silver/aluminum
Thank you very much for the info. I was aware only of a few japanese tube amps (i.e. Luxman).  
Since Jason is shy about this, I'll dare to remind that until a few hours ago the handful of cyclotronic push pull (or however you call it) speaker amps ever built were known only to few uber-audiophiles, and even less people could afford them. SS cyclotronic did not even exist if I'm correct, as they were intended to mitigate tube distortions. Of course I'm speaking about how they are made and not about they sound... But... Hell, I thought a 10.000$ ferrari would have...
