Aside from the DAC talk, I just wanna say that HE-400 w/ grill mods + DAC1 + mini-X a-100 = sheer auditory bless. Still waiting on the DHC cable, as the bare wire adapter I'm using isn't ideal (too long, not built very well), but these will hold me well until the HE-6 (I probably won't sell them anyways).
Why no grill mod lovers? I never get to see them mentioned anymore.
I'm doing the mod as soon as I get them don't worry! I'll post pics and everything :D
