That is without a doubt the best looking amplifier ever to have graced Head-Fi.

It's like being nauseous on a merry-go-round and the operator simply won't stop the darned ride huh Ray?? Almost makes one want to see good ol' Ken move up a few more notches on that list doesn't it??

Nah, I know that wouldn't be fair to the others and I surely wouldn't want to put you in that position. Hey, on a somewhat related note, tyrion mentioned that you'd be in Fla for the meet in early June. What a coincidence!! So will I!! Hey, maybe we can do dinner and discuss the A-10. Have I told you how excited I am about that amp?? The moment I hear you're ready to begin, I'll be selling the Raptor as I know you remember that I'm #1 for that one, right??? Just hope there are no delays. I'd hate to be "Mr. Ampless" again. Not sure how I'd react to that situation if I were in it yet again. Doubt I could be as calm, cool and collected as I have been this time 'round. Hey, looking forward to Fla. We've got a TON to discuss!!!

Tyrion:

If you still have the Veda-Audio Dynahi SA around when you get the Raptor, I'd love to see a comparative review. I should be getting my Dynahi SA in the next week or two, but I thought long and hard about a Raptor before pulling the trigger on the Dynahi.

What a beautiful and informative review. Just amazing how someone can put their experience in to words so extremely well. It was one of the best reviews I read. It makes the wait even harder as it already was.

Any one else get their Raptor already besides Billy?

PS. Billy, your review was great as well

I think it needs to be small as I have a hard time hearing subtle differences when there is noise all around as in a regular meet.
I had the same idea I been thinking about for the past few years. I purchased a few Stereophile and Chesky training/test CDs but a group session with experienced ears would be so much more educational. We would have to find a place with a good speaker setup. Perhaps an audio store with a good room/setup would be interested in hosting this? But lets not hijack this thread lats start a new one.
