Thanks.   It's aligned for me on my main PC but not on another, nor on a tablet. Oh well. 
Btw is anybody seeing my pictures in a weird format? Like all over the place?   It might just be a problem just with tablets and phones, when viewed as "mobile" instead of "desktop" mode. If so I apologize. 
Sorry, LMS stands for Logitech Media Server which stemmed form the Squeezebox systems but has since become a stand alone thing that can run on non-Squeezebox machines. LMS has Roon capabilities so the Matrix X-Server can switch from LMS mode to Euphony mode and also HQPlayer mode for those users who like software upsampling from PCM to DSD. You can switch between modes, not quite "on the fly" but it only takes about a minute to reboot in a different mode.  
 Yes, that case is completely impractical but somehow I still love it.... 
 Good question. I've mainly been listening to the Capricorn on its own to get a feel for it. Next comes comparisons with other IEMs and CIEMs. Also need to use a bunch more sources/amps to see if I can find any standout matches or particularly poor combos. 
  Could be... you probably know how hard it can be to look inside such a densely packed snaggle of drivers, inside a smoked translucent shell, and get a clear view of the markings/size/general features of the drivers. I can think of a few alternate ways of arriving at the 2-4-2-2 configuration but in the end I don't really care all that much - it's the tuning more than anything that determines the sound, and in this case it's a huge success. 
  It actually does let you switch to LMS mode which handles Roon. Very well I might add. 
                                                                            You'd never guess how many IEMs make their way through my home each year. Various manufacturers and marketing types regularly ask me to have a listen and I usually say "sure.... but I can't promise anything will come of it". And that's typically how it plays out - the vast majority of them don't get more than a quick listen before being sent back with a polite "thanks anyway".    Poor sound...
I have only minimal experience with the Lumin stuff. It seems good if not the best, and personally I like Aurender more in general. But that's based on somewhat limited exposure to both brands considering how many models they both have in their lineups.   I do have the little SOtM sMS-200 running in my system now. Killer way of adding Roon capability without spending a fortune. It sounds far better than I expected for the price too. Easily as good as the more expensive...
My review is extremely positive - it's the most fun I've had with a piece of gear in quite some time. Tube rolling is the name of the game with this amp.   I can't speak for other review sites but Part Time Audiophile is in the midst of finishing up show coverage, which really slows down the regular review postings. It's not an ideal situation but the editor does it Part Time (hence the name) and can't always get everything up as quickly as we might like.   But...
