 As I wait for the coffee to finish brewing, this was my first good laugh of the day.      Cynical, yes.  But there's some truth there, sadly.
Wild Blue from Blue Tofu's album, Blue Tofu   http://tidalhifi.com/track/20008492     Thanks for introducing this artist to me, Cornan!
^ Do tell us what you don't like about it relative to other services.  I value negative reviews more than positive, but I crave details.  
Knowing that lots of high-end audio companies have gone under with products that failed frequently doesn't make Audeze look any better to me when there are so many flagship headphones suffering no failures. In other words, this may be a niche industry, but I can still have my cake and eat it, too. We really don't have to put up with component failures, charitably enabling dysfunctional designs, to enjoy superb audio.
Even as the poll is currently designed, it reveals that a whopping 61% of LCD-3 owners (with 48 votes submitted thus far) have suffered a driver failure!  I had no idea it was that bad.     An interesting stat would be the average number of failures per owner.  With some people experiencing 5 or more failures, it probably works out to something greater than 1 failure per owner, easily.   With these figures, buying a new LCD-3 is just as scary as buying a used one....
 Thanks castleofargh!
   I don't have an A17, but castleofargh does and he notices a lack of transparency relative to the X5, so I was asking him if he thinks it's happening in the DAC or in the DAC+amp.    :-) Mike
 Would you say the A17's lack of transparency (relative to the X5) is as readily apparent in the DAC (Line Out) as it is in the DAC + amp (Headphone Out)? Thanks, Mike
Jackie Gleason's version of A Taste of Honey   http://tidalhifi.com/track/43855633   The musicianship in this is superb.    
This is fun!     http://tidalhifi.com/track/43855633
