Rookie, I expect some pictures at the very least!

nice pic!! yes..i am on the going away boat..just like u...

 

but i promise i will make some 'packing out' pics...just because u asked it to...but.those wont be top of line pics as my new audio rack (that i bought for my new toys) isnt going to be here for another 4 months or so..so bare with me if the pics look a bit amateuristic. :wink_face:

but i wont talk about how it sounds or anything..just esthetics..and a big box.. :D 

what a colorful amp u have!!! never heard of that brand....dangerous source? knowing u a bit it will sound good...so i hope u share with me (or us) how it sounds...

and i still need advice on my new speaker rig..any tips? PM them to me if u can..thanks my friend..

Cool. Post pics here and drop me a message about the sound. I'd still be interested. Cheers.

i will..promise...have a good one..i am going to bed...5:00am! in a few hours the package will arrive...13:30, if i am lucky, or 15:30 at the latest...can u believe i have to pay the delivery guy cash on delivery for the extra costs of customs and taxes? need to run to an ATM for money in the morning as i know what the costs are... i really REALLY hate DUTCH customs! i know they do their job..but i hate them...period!!...i have to pay around 30% over the total of the postage (for a 20kg package) and the worth of the amp together!!.. ohwell..important is that i at last will be able to hear it.... :beerchug:

That thing is Death Star badass.  Love their logo.  Wrong cans sitting atop it, though ;)

@hifimanrookie

Enjoy official Blue Circle Amp Day, Hifi!  Been a long time coming.  I'm sure it will be worth it :)

Yeah it's a solid peace of gear. I haven't felt this good about getting such value since my HE-500s. The D2000 are surprisingly super tight with these and crazy bass. Way better value than something like M51 and BDA-2. Not to mention I like the sound of this more than BDA-2/BHA-1 which was a bit too aggressive. Getting monitors very, very soon. After that, I'll be doing most of my listening on them. Then I'll do a final headphone upgrade.

 

I'm going to try and find a HE-500 and other planars to try it out of the headphone jack at the upcoming meet. Should be interesting.

It's the dangerous source.

Oh my my!

 

Did it power up ok?  :D  Next few days, you will be in hiding, right?

End game is where Head-fi'ers go after they die. It's the Head-fi equivalent of enlightenment of searching for sonic nirvana. Bad Head-fi'ers are forced to listen to Beats headphones for all eternity.

Very nice :)

Enjoy!

 

P.S. - so, your daughter's really into toy cars, eh?  Wait, those aren't your toys, are they??  ;)
