OH manI'm sorry bout that! I'd call em you never know 
I was pumped to see you got one!!That amp still BLOWS MY MIND more often than any other.PLUS: I'm also really enjoying my Pioneer SE-A1000s (w/ @warrenpchi Mod) on the LC!!
  
thanks so very much for this note!! Yeah Bruce and I are close friends, and it was a mutual decision.We actually hung out yesterday!! He enjoyed it, and shared it - that meant everything to me.And thanks for the comments on the "straight-laced" - to be brutally honest I'd like to be able to do that sometimes.But I just gotta lead with my heart
there was, I heard from a couple dealers - a bad batch of Virtuosos! They ALL had noise issues in that batch, sounded plausible Mine is still quiet

THIS was PRECIOUS 
Just busted-out my Virtuoso again - and havin' a terrific listening sesh!! I have the Questyle Gold Edition CAS192D DAC (ROGERS Ceramic boards - + THE WORKS - amazing kit) for a bit and wanted to put the Burson on it.   LOST in Radiohead right now...  
here's the portable system I've been using the most lately:Questyle QP1R - Double Helix Cables - Audeze SINEFOR TRAVEL My iPhone 6 runnin' TIDAL w/ Audeze Titanium EL-8 + CIPHER DAC/AMP/DSP cable...On-The-Go (isolation & SIRI is even more responsive w/ CIPHER)
