IMO no other devices have been released which improve upon what the SR71b does.

I have difficulties choosing between the Intruder and the Sr71b ... I just tried the Sr71B , it is fine with the D5000 , but I can not find someone borrow me an Intruder ...

With the gain upgrade, sonically I think the amplifiers are very very close.  It boils down to your source.  The DAC in the Intruder adds a feature not in the SR71B.  

 

Before the gain upgrade to the SR71B, some preferred the Intruder.

Still have it, great with all my orthodynamics and not bad with the HD800.  I do think my lightning F-35 is a little wamer and more enjoyable with HD800, and on par with the others, except the F-35 can't drive the HE-6.

Thanks Larry! I was having a tough decision between SR-71B and the F-35. I went with SR-71B due to fact it can run both single and balance. Waiting for my balance cables, I really hope it's worth it.

You definitely want to go balanced if you can with this amp, as it's a rather large improvement in this particular amp.  The 1/8" output is nice for emergencies. :tongue_smile:

hello everyone,sorry for bringing up the old thread. i've just got my sr-71b today and listening it for a moment when i realize that the volume for left and right channel is imbalance.

half panicking, i search through this thread and find that the left and right volume could be adjusted by using the screw on the volume pot. but in my unit there is only one screw. is it supposed to be like that or there should be screw on both of them. i got this unit secondhand and maybe the previous owner lost it.

sorry for the bad photo,didn't have good camera with me right now. and can anyone give a detailed instruction on how to adjust the volume using this screw?

thank you very much,help is really appreciated
