Yes, I did.
In last June Detroit's meet I listen to the DS with my HE-6 and I was sold so when Ray open the pre-order I immediately put myself in the list. I was a little bit concerned about the matching of its high power with other more efficient headphones.
My objective in this CanJam was to listen to DS with other headphones that are among my collection. I tried it with the HD800 in the low gain position. The sound was great! Very full, expansive and detailed. The background was very black. I really enjoy it. My concerns were completely dissipated and my Rudistor RP010B is now gone to open the space for the DS.
According to Ray he was expecting to get the chassis in 5 to 7 days. The boards are already assembled so as soon as the chassis are in is just a matter of assemble them and let them burn-in for 5 days to ship the DS out. Hopefully I will get mine within the next week and a half.
