In my case and with KopaZ, it quickly made the trip to our respective, local USPS distribution centers, then sat there for a couple of days, going nowhere, before finally making the last few miles to our respective local local post offices, then sat there overnight, before getting delivered to our homes. I So it will probably get to Central IL, quickly. I'm curious as to how long it will sit still at your local USPS distribution center - as revealed by the tracking...

That's weird. The same thing happened to me. Tracking info showed it went half-way across the country very quickly to reach a local USPS distribution center that's only 10 miles from my house - where it sat still, going nowhere for about three days, then it took a whole day to make it to my local post office and I got it the next day. Sheesh! I have a theory: The USPS is so busy delivering Amazon packages that are handed off to them from the UPS, that they couldn't...

Now I'm pushing the DT880 600-Ohm with balanced output from the PB2 (with both sides of the two Sparkos Labs SS3602 Duals). It's almost an injustice to call the DT880 600 a poor man's HD800. It sounds so much better with twice the power from the PB2. http://www.head-fi.org/t/633511/pictures-of-your-portable-rig-part-xvi/20250#post_12650499

Wow! At http://www.mouser.com, I'm surprised to see that their price of a MUSES02 is currently only USD $46.25, purchasing fewer than 10 at a time. http://www.mouser.com/search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=0virtualkey0virtualkeyMUSES02 The prices have come way down! In November of 2013, they were on backorder at all of the reputable dealers in the U.S. I waited three months until mouser.com had them back in stock - when I then paid $75 each, plus tax and shipping. 12 Nov 2013...

Hi Scruffy1, A friend of mine once told me he had read an article or heard a book or whatever that left him convinced of its message: "Too many choices leads to unhappiness". I say, "The more choices the better," but when it comes to op-amps, I'm glad I only own one piece of gear into which I can roll them. It sounds as if you've got several pieces with which to ramp up the permutations and combinations, as multipliers of your inventory of op-amps. You almost need to...

Hi! Some people I've read are saying the SS3602 has a rolled-off treble compared to the Burson V5 and I have to agree it's a little bit less airy, but I really think it's also a cleaner, better-defined treble - not as (annoyingly) crystalline with the HD800 as when using the Burson V5, but I wouldn't say there's any loss of detail. It's like a big fan was turned on to suck the smoke out of the air. When the smoke is gone, you can see better. The treble difference is...
