If you know where to get a Tomahawk for $215, please let me know! Skylab rated the Move2 higher, but folks REALLY seem to love Ray Samuels' amps.

Keep an eye onthe for sale/trade forums and you will see them occasionally around that price, one is there now for $230.

Crap! I wonder if the wife will notice, after the $360 I've spent on this stuff in the last month?

MiniBox-E+ is no longer ~$200. It's $229 today.

Yes it does look like they raised the price of the minibox e+. I have one paired with my yuin pk1s and I think its fantastic. Going back and forth from my pa2v2 to the minibox it's no comparison. Pa2v2 just seems to make things louder and the highs are piercing to my ears.There is also a bass boost switch which is fun with hip hop/rap,Plus the form factor makes it fit well with my ipod.Pictures of Your Portable Rig [Part XI] - Page 81 - Head-Fi: Covering Headphones, Earphones and Portable Audio

Also with the minibox you have the ability to roll op amps. I've got 2 AD797s coming in the mail as per MrArroyos suggestion. Here is his portable amp review- http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f105/3...review-250223/

Unfortunately I have no experience with any of the other amps but I hope to soon enough.

I heard that recent Minibox-E+ had no pin socket for opamp that previous Minibox-E+ had had.
Rolling is possible but a little bit hard now.

I went with the p2 because i didnt need a DAC...think the p2 might be the best bang for the buck specially after you roll opamps
