I don't get it. He says BA, then he says FA. Then the reporter tells me I should only be hearing BA, but I do not. The McGurk effect sucks.

If it helps... within weeks of receiving them it'll be down to one again :D  I only have the Peak, the rest are simply 'paid for'.

My present strategy is this: Keep several amps and cans and dacs - rotate combinations when the upgrade-itch catches you. Cheaper in the long run, only downside is storage. dt880smile.png

He's only saying BA even though his lips look like he's saying the "FA". Perceptual illusions.  Sneaky sarcasm got me.
