Better to look great and pay cheap than vice versa. Looks damn nice!

Mine is made by Q Audio. They have one of the fastest turn around times (within a week). Pretty reasonable too.

My adapter cable isn't from Q Audio, but I have a couple other cables by them and highly recommend them. Best ergonomics I've ever encountered in a cable.

I gave it a quick listen with the PM-1 at AXPONA. It was very good, but I think I liked the Alpha Dogs better.

I will be honest. I cant afford to by an fj1 etc and I also need a DAC. I tried the he6 on the nfb 28 and I wanted more mids, bass and thought it was bright, and not loud enough on certain songs. 

 

Well I tried this peach tree decco65 and its still bright but more punchy and the mids dont sound recessed any more. Is also a lot louder than I can take. Where the knob is in the picture is really loud. I didnt need any other pieces in the chain and there is no noise, no distortion at loud volumes. All is well.

I dont plan on selling this anymore or atleast for a while. I know someone will recommend I upgrade but ignorance is bliss right now. 

That's out of speaker taps and not the headphone out?

Time to start modding. You'll realize it's not just a very good all-around; it straight up beats most others you might think are better in other aspects.
