I had to ditch a full sized receiver as impractical for my desktop. A nice class A/B amp at $299 would be a nice fit. I'm not sure the market size though.

Wow - you were busy last month!  I'll get to reading them over the next while.
I ended up with a Mojo and AK100ii or iPhone stack. Clunky, but good UI on both, and both stacks sound excellent. Probably my best portable option for now. Works well with my ether c's and my ciems.

Nice first post - Welcome!  Oh, and sorry about your wallet, of course.
Yep, I enjoyed it as well.  Who knew you could laugh out loud at the opera!  Great talent.  Ernesto stole the show for me.  An excellent singer and actor.
Opera.  Not necessarily my favorite art form, but definitely growing on me.  I had the chance to see Don Pasquale last Saturday at the SF Opera.  I thoroughly enjoyed it - thought the comment from @bosiemoncrieff about being aware of watching an opera rang true.  This was I believe only my second opera, Madame Butterfly 10+ years ago being my first.  It looks like 2018 the SF Opera is doing an entire ring cycle over the course of 4 days, possibly consecutive?  I'm...
