Massdrop has the Gustard DAC-X12 back again....   https://www.massdrop.com/buy/gustard-dac-x12-usb-version?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Community%20-%20Audiophile%20-%20MAU%20%28Active%29&utm_campaign=Audiophile%20A%20Product%20Announcement%202015-05-18&mode=guest_open&referer=3GEZED
Has anyone considered the Sony PHA-3 DAC/amp?   http://www.pricejapan.com/front/e_good_info.php?code=1427&category=10   It has balanced headphone out (double amping?), or you could use the single ended line out in the back.  It seems to be well received tonally, just lacking in the power department....
 But, they're a good kind of ugly... They lost me at the bass adjustment and single entry cable...
 Kinda apples and oranges... I don't know why, but I'm so disinterested in those.
 Thanks for the idea.  But, I lack the soldering skills to trust myself with a $1200 DIY kit.  I believe I would need to start with the Crack, and work my way up to the Mainline...
 I would love you hear your impressions on the 2 cables.  Is the Nordost silver?
 Well, I wouldn't bet the house on the HE-6, but this might be great with the T1...
Awww, that's a real bummer.  I was saving up for a Sonnet 2, I just don't make a mint and its a slow save.  These things barely come up used, so I might as well look elsewhere.  I wonder if Don would do a final batch of these?   Otherwise I guess I'll have to save longer for a WA22...
  I'll just mention the Woo WA3 OTL.  I have personally had better listening experiences with this OTL then the Crack.  I know tube rolling makes a huge difference, but I just want you to be aware of options if you don't have the DIY bug...
 I do all the time.  But keep in mind that the M8's power is basically equal coming out of all the headphone ports.  The only benefit is impedance balancing, and getting a length more suitable for portable use.... But there's great synergy in this combo.
