 I'm preparing myself to place the order for a $1200 DAC to go with my first run Liquid Carbon.  Most people around head-fi would most likely tell me I'm silly for spending so much more, basically double, for a complimentary piece. But I bet if I polled the other first run owners, the most popular response would be along the lines of,  "Oh yeah, totally good idea..."  Why is that?  Because the Liquid Carbon is worth it.  When you hear it, I think you'll totally...
 Tell Peter that you were hoping to use the cable with both amps.  Maybe he can splice the 3 pin XLRs in between the splitter and the 3.5mm ends...
 I sent my Kimber to @PETEREK to reterminiate from 1/4" to 4 pin XLR. My Cavalli is 4 pin XLR so he cut off the single ended and put on a balanced termination. You should send him a PM.  I think you're saying you have the Kimber for the PHA-3 DAC/Amp, which has dual 3.5 mm ends.  I don't see why Peter change that to dual 3 pin XLR.  But you should ask him that yourself. BTW, that is one amazing amp you have there.  The Z7 should really sing on that..
I'm close to placing my Musette order, and I'd like to ask a couple of questions, in the mean time...   1) Has anyone connected an iPad or any lightning cable device to the Musette yet?  I have a Camera Connection Kit (CCK) which I assume would be necessary.  But I'm wondering if I would also need a powered USB hub as well (like the Schiit Wyrd).  Any experience connecting portable devices (Apple or not) would be great to hear about.  It would be nice if my iPad could be...
 Mjolnir or Mjolnir 2?  I had a pleasant listening experience with the HD650 (balanced) and the original Mjolnir, and all I hear is the 2 steps it up quite a bit...
My desktop setup: Z7 with Kimber modded to 4 pin XLR <- Cavalli Liquid Carbon <- Cypher Labs Algorythm Solo db <- iMac (I'm planning a DAC upgrade in the near future)   Semi-portable: Same Z7 <- CEntrance Hi-Fi M8 <- iPod Touch
 From the email I received from Cavalli: "As we mentioned a few weeks ago, we are proud to offer you - the current owner of an initial-batch Liquid Carbon (serial number #00007) - an exclusive discount off the final production runs of our premium headphone amplifiers.Don't miss this last chance to save big off of a new Liquid Crimson, Liquid Glass, Liquid Gold, or Liquid Lightning 2T of your very own.To take advantage of this discount, simply visit CavalliAudio.com and...
I don't think USB power can charge enough to keep up with the M8 while it's playing music.  You will drain the battery if you're at all like me and enjoy marathon listening sessions...
 Oh I'll be curious about that one.  It should have the juice since many Audeze owners have WA22s...
 It's a huge help with music discovery without the monthly fee.  I'd like Tidal, but rather spend money elsewhere, like my local record shop...
