i think it's good being lazy. i was about to order a hornet but now i can wait until this one. again, any head-fi discount?

Ray has actually revised an amp in the past. There was the Hornet then Hornet M.

I look forward to a renewed SR71.

When I bought my first Hornet, I wanted the Sr71 and Ray mentioned the same thing about parts not being available to continue building at that time.

I feel that all this portable gear improvement is beginning to lessen the gap between portable and home amps with easier to drive phones.

It has the same opamps and they aren't in sockets. The Apache has sockets though.

Ray also revamped the power supply of the Raptor.

Gee, it ain't hard. I mean you guys are smart right? Damn, and with this yelling my ears are ringing. No, I don't have one but I did hear rumors so.

I asked the manufacture.

You see, both of my professions, critical care nurse and visual anthropology, require questioning, so it comes naturally.

Well to be fair, fanboys are usually the ones most interested in new products and asking questions. Witness Apple rumors. I don't seen any wild claims here.

What I am is a fan of sound, good sound. Notice that I talk about many amps, from Xin, RSA, iBasso, Woo, Little Dot, and a few others and have much of the time since I arrived here. I find "fan Boy" a negative remark and it is often taken that way here but then Fan Boy of good sound is fine with me, so thank you. I think we can all take ourselves waaay to serious about all this at times. Come to ICU with me sometime with people on vents or pump on a chest for a while hoping that they will pull through or clean up their body after they have died and then talk to their grieving family. That is just a wee bit more serious. It is all about perspective and here, I hope, about enjoying good sound and life.

And be happy that unlike so many that get no care, we e are discussing the reproduction of music. This person who was mentally ill, sick and sitting in her own feces and that when I tried to get the local officials in China to help her they laughed, would have liked a different option in life.

Heck, I didn't even know the SR-71 wasn't being made since it is still on Ray's site and listing a sale price. If it really isn't currently available, Ray needs to note that on his website.

If you have a problem with a thread, report it. This thread has been reported so there is no need to report it anymore. The thread, whether it should or should not be permitted will be made by the moderators, not a discussion between the OP and those complaining. Until the threads fate is determined, post on topic or don't post at all.

John,

I know this isn't on topic but could you trim your freakin' sig? It makes it really hard to read your posts and threads that you post in. On a 19" monitor it's bad enough, on my Ipod Touch I just give up.

On Topic: until there are details from Ray it doesn't seem like there's much to discuss. We don't know what he's changing so what's there to say?

The New SR-71a

I received an e-mail from Ray on June 4, that said if I wait, there will be a new SR-71A coming out in 40 days, so whats that, July 14? or thereabouts. I did not say anything initially cuz I figured Ray would let people "in the know" have this info (Jamato) when he felt it was the right time. I have asked him if I could pre-pay for one of the first, but no reply as of yet.
Enjoy,
Scott

Hang tuff Jamato! U got my respect and admiration!
