 Thanks for this post - I almost placed an order impulsively.   But I'm reading a lot of reviews on a lot of tube dacs, before taking the plunge...  Uggh! Mike
Thanks again, Pudu!

Hey guys,   I started reading this thread this morning, but made the mistake of fast-forwarding to the end, only to discover there's a whole lot of modding going on.    (To good effect, apparently!)   Can someone please take a stab at itemizing the most popular mods and stating what each of them does in terms of audible improvements over the stock Havana?   I was just about to order one but now, I really want to know what I'll be missing if I don't mod it.   For...

Yes, thank you! That's very generous.If you coul tell me how it fails relative to your best HD800 setup, I'd really have the info I need.Mike
Thanks for the bump, Soundsgoodtome.  I agree with your comments!     The Bushmaster MkII is a relatively unknown 'giant killer' that nevertheless has a strong cult following.   I actually received payment from a buyer about an hour and fifteen minutes ago, so I'm closing this Classified, now.  
Heads up!   Amazon is currently offering their lowest price ever on this watch:   Citizen Grand Touring Automatic Leather Black Dial Men's Watch NB0075-11F      More great pictures are available here:
