It always stuns me that in these days a Woo > LCD-2 chain can be considered humble. The hobby sure has moved up in price since the pre-Orpheus days.

Very nice!  You don't see the hd700 so often. Is that a small dent in the mid plate of the outside of the driver?

Yep that is small dent.

I will not change out the amp, because I love Crack :biggrin: But I am looking for another dac. Want to turn up the SQ a bit. I think they do blend well. At least to my ears. Stock tubes were RCA 12AU7 and RCA6080 as usual, but I changed them to CBS5814A and GE 6AS7GA and now I am waiting for my Tung-Sol/Chatham 5998 tube. I read that 5998 and CBS5814A tubes pair really well. My stock 6080 tube was really microphonic and with stock 12au7 the HD700 had treble spike. Now it is dead silent and everything is well.
