I was thinking about getting a tube amp to see what is it really like when I listen to music. Yes I had the ZDSE and DNA Stratus in mind, but the Zen Taboo is really classical and retro. It made me curious since it does have a lifetime warranty (90 days for tubes) and reminds me of old antique radios.

It's a shame though, but there are plenty of new headphone amps and DACs being released this year. Seems that some of them are delayed like the Cavalli Liquid Fire MKII.
EDIT: Odd, I can't seem to buy the Matrix X-Sabre since it doesn't list Canada, USA, or Mexico as shipping options. Darn. Time to look for another DAC.
