Of course. I wouldn't hurt someones chances at auction. I'll let it be though. They've been going for that price though since 2008 so I wouldn't jump to conclusions so fast
Attention, there are some Thetas on eBay. Surprised at how many "watchers" are on both listings. Both are very desirable and I can vouch for one of them.   "If there is a reason why DACs of past is still favorably looked upon, the ____________ is one such reason.

I will be buying a Schiit SYS so I can give a better and more accurate comparison between Uber and Theta. I didn't know the product existed until someone mentioned it the other day.. I'm just not up to date with my Schiit.
