Hey good point!  Uproarious cheers and fanfare!  This is pretty momentous!  Not sure I'll ever get one - I think it may be more than I need.  That is hardly the point though - It is finally done! and it is quite a product.  I too am holding out for the Yggdrasil.  An end game dac would be a worthy investment for me.  A good thing to have no matter where I stand in my parade of amps at any given time….
I just got pointed to this thread by Warren. I'm a long shot for this one - biggish round the clock project at work. There's a chance though. I'll post again if I can make it, and see what I can bring. EDIT- Regarding the post above and post below - the Soloist SL is a really nice amp! Love the volume pot, love the sound.

Ermmmm.... The one that sounds the best to you?
Ibasso pb2 really drives them well in balanced mode. SE is ok, but nothing special. Lots of power balanced though.
I started with a Bifrost Uber. I went back and forth quite a few times. I eventually decided that maybe the Bifrost had a bit softer treble. The difference to me was vanishingly minute. I ended up keeping the HA-1 mainly for the cool display, front mount apple input, Bluetooth and the fact that it really sounds darned good. Best ES 9018 I've heard, and I'm not really a fan of that chip. Still, I really like the HA-1, and finally decided I did not need the Bifrost. I...
mine runs 110 F max.
