 Great to hear that - Actually - I haven't tried that combo yet - but I sure will!  
 Haha - well - you should never spend more on audio than you can afford. A great system doesnt have to break the bank, and you definetly don't always get a subjectively more joyful experience from spending more.  Auditioning at home is always a preferred option, but then again - if you get a great 2nd hand deal - you can alays pass it on to someone else :) BTW - aesthetics is not irrational ,)
 I have no issue with hum except on high impedance cans (like the HD800). It is however, my all time favorite with the HE500 - and it drives the HE-6 very good from the speaker tabs via HE adapter (unless you are into hardcore and dubstep) so I wouldn't say it underpoweres most of your cans ,) There are only a few users that experience hum issues, so I wouldn't be too anxious. Listening to it with the LCD-3 and it is simply gorgeous =) 
 Seems like they made all the discrete sections integrated, but that dosen't have to make it sound any different - just streamlines production. If Project86 can't tell the difference, I would say nobody can ,)
I have both wa2 and a1, and really prefer the a1 with t1. It is warmer and fuller sounding with t1, and since I like warmer and fuller sounding sound, a1 is making t1 worthwhile for me.
 I have compared them side by side with a variety of headphones and really found the Taurus better. More detail, deeper soundstage. Mjolnir is somewhat flatter sounding. Mjolnir is a good amp, but you get a better amp in Taurus. Even the HE6 sounds better at Taurus, even if Mjolnir has higher wattage rated in the specs. 
 With sensitive cans the stepped on the WA22 can be to steppy. With the WA2 I've never had a problem with that. 
 I have noissues with noise or hum on the leven ezcept when using high impedance phones. Low impedance phones, even the 110dB Sennheiser Momerntum are quiet.  I tried it with the Klipsch RF8 rated at 98dB @ 2.83V / 1m and had no hum there either.  I think the hum from the Leben varies a lot with mains and tubes, since others report otherwise. But I think that is a minority. . 
Want to buy a Squeezebox Touch at a reasonable price.    Thanks for watching :)
^ I just do not think people should believe that you need a big speaker amp to get the he6 sound great. I was wondering if you had any specific experience with speaker amps being significantly better than the Taurus, or wether you were just assuming Taurus is a lesser amp following the general "truth" of this thread. That's all
