Has anyone tried swapping out those blue diodes with red or amber ones? Red would look bloody awesome.

Knowing your reviews and the gear you use, go for the muses man, your LCD3s will love them. My TH900s sound very similar to the LCD3s which has been described by many owners of both HPs, however the LCDs are slightly on the darker side of things, which I think with muses will workout being a good pairing.
Thank you, that's very kind! :) I don't describe myself as an audiophile though, I even say so on the channel page, but I might be in denial, lol. E1 offers the most bang for the buck that I've ever experienced with anything else. Very exciting to see that people here are yielding such great results by swapping opamps too -- seems very promising!
TH900, drooling ... :) I love Denon AH-D7000 so the TH900 has to be owned sometime! Do you find it to be a good match with E1? Did you get the MUSES edition? Will probably get MUSES, but not until I've rolled some opamps. I have two standard editions to simplify the rolling and maybe use one of them as a bedside rig :) Right now LCD-3 and AURALiC TAURUS and ARK MX+ is king, if E1 MUSES can top that I will be gobsmacked.
Which opamps do you like with TH900? Maybe the same combo will be good for D7000.

Mids and highs are clean and detailed, soundstage is not as AD797br, but on average side. I think that this would be a great combination for basic factory shipment.
Cool, thanks for sharing. A bit short on those OPA2132 to do the same, having just two. :(
Do you guys get most of your opamps from ebay? Kind of scary to shop there, with the risk of buying fakes, but getting from reputable sellers with 100 % positive feedback and at least 500-1000 feedbacks should make it safe, right?
