Heck yeah. All the gear is packed, and I'm ironing my Hawaiian shirt while I watch Top Gear. See you day after tomorrow. Oh and no need to ask if you can bring something, just do it.

It's mostly the modules, but that's a pretty big difference to my ears. Those 627s are just lovely.
It's a different design, but a good one. Not quite as good as a DPS, but close. I'd guess it's better than the Astrodyne.
Thanks for the impressions. Feel free to post here to enjoy a noise-free environment for your posts.
Phew! That was a circuitous route. Got there in the end though.

I'm probably in the camp that thinks your best improvement is with a better DAC. That and...

Your point is well made, lemme look into it a bit. My guess is that we won't return to making it a stock item, but I don't see us turning down a custom refit with Max modules as squirt suggests. Again, it's not returnable then. I'll get back to you here.
