I think dw6928 has run its course. I think it is time for a new name (dw6928 dates back to my son's email when he was in Pre-K and his first computer). Any ideas? Aren't you all sick of dw6928 (Wayne)?

At 2:00 pm I called my building concierge from the office. He informed me I had a package Well I rushed home (45 minutes to drive 34.6 miles in the middle of the Miami and Fort Lauderdale rush hour).
I'm in the UK and Meier Audio's site puts the price of the Cantate at €450 = £311.50. The price of the 'Green' Solo is £245 with £8 shipping to the UK = £253, putting the Cantate just over 20% dearer than the 'Green' Solo.
I understand that the 'cheesy' wall-wart is a part of the design endeavour to comply with new environmental regulations without compromising sound quality. Graham Slee thinks he has done this, and reviewers and others can comment on whether that goal has been realised, which is to ask 'does the green version of the Solo have the same sound quality as the non-green version?'. When we have answers to this question we can decide what to think of the wall-wart; and the build quality should be judged in the context of the unit's relatively low price..
I understand that Sennheiser UK uses Graham Slee Solos to demonstrate its headphones.
