Is there any appetite at all for headphone amps outside the audiophile market? The people in the video who are trying to hold onto the Vampeo and seem excited about it all look to me as though they're either going to drop it or throw it through the nearest window as soon as the videographer yells "cut".
I didn't know that bluetooth degrades the signal, so thanks for the heads-up on that. Of course, you can opt for the Vampeo in a bluetooth-free form ... but the functionality (by which I mean: the range of uses) takes a hit if you do that. Again, though, how useful is bluetooth in most contexts? Cabling your amp to another amp so that you can use it as an Airplay receiver seems a bit bizarre: it's not something that I would use in any foreseeable situation.
