All of the sudden the SR71 seems to be competitively priced after all.
Too bad I don't need portable amp anymore.
re-read..... (see below)
a) you do still get an AC adapter
b) you still get it with "stock" OPA227
yeah, the buffer price has gone up, but for me it went down $9.99 since when I ordered my SM, I paid for the extra buffer, now it's free till the end of the month
I'm a firm believer (within reason) that you get what you pay for. I have no doubt that this is a top notch, durable and bullet proof product that is well worth the $$$.
