When your competitor has a 'luxury' item at X price point, you'd better have one as expensive or more. The market for this stuff has moved past basic function. If you release a $500 flagship and your competitor's is $2000, well surely it must be better! Having a flagship or statement product is kind of saying "if price were no option this is the best we can offer".

What is your reference for neutral?
For Sale;  Headamp GSX MK2 in black with the DACT option.    Throwing this out there as an interest check.  Raising money for a different setup.  Bought this in 2014 from another Head-Fi member and it has seen very little use just due to space in my apartment or a variety of equipment.  Cell-phone quality pics attached here, if there is serious interest I can attempt to take some better quality images.   - No functional or aesthetic flaws. - Will ship with the...

 Wow, interested to compare the new model.  Wonder if they will offer the upgrade program for the MHA100.  If i'm reading this right that's going to be like $3000 more than the MHA100 retails for, better be one hell of a DAC upgrade or at least something else going on behind the scenes.
I can't help but think these will be bad.     I get the feeling the only reason they exist is so Audeze can say "Hey we have iems now too".  They look so unwieldy and at $2500 for the LCD i3 its not my cup of tea.  I'm going to hold out for the LCD i4 they're releasing next month for $5000.  It will sound basically the same but I get a carbon fiber cable.
