I doubt it'd be hard to get one after they're all sold (GLites aren't exactly HF-1s) and even if they do, it's unlikely that a different colored one (with no differences internally) will sell for significantly more.

I'd like to know too if any of the 15 are left. Regardless, if I had to guess, I agree it shouldn't be too hard to find one later on the used market.

Great pics + review akwok. I agree with your conclusion, the amp is like a tiny killer. Such a big sound from such a diminutive unit. About how many hours are on yours? Mine has less than 8. Should probably burn it in, been too lazy.

On a related note, I find both the Gilmore Lite and GS-1 to work equally well across AKG, Audio-Technica, and Grado headphones. These amps are definitely doing something special to be able to work so well with all my headphones.

Edit: oh man I envy you, I'm spying that L3K! That remains the only single-ended headphone I'm secretly lusting after.

I've ran mine for about 2 weeks now, on 24/7. So over 200 hours!

Perhaps there still are some available. This combo still shows up on the order page.
