To their credit, though (what little of it I care to give), there's a ton of whack **** out there that's way more expensive and I have trouble thinking of anything I've heard that beats the O2 at less than twice the price.
Listening to my ECBA earlier today compared with my memories of it at a meet has me convinced that I should be looking into better ways to connect my PC to my DAC as some guy and I were discussing over there. From what I've read I'm convinced I can get good performance out of it, just not using the USB input. I do plan on getting a new DAC sometime in the future, though.
In the mean time I'm going to order boxes and foam after finals and put ome genuine effort into selling gear. I'm torn as to whether or not I want to sell my Rx MK3-B due to it being too loud paired with the CLAS for IEMs or if I want to sell my CLAS and put that money toward the newer one that supposedly has a lower line-out. I'm leaning toward the later.
If that's what I decide on then I'll be selling:
Hisound Studio V
Woo Audio WA22 (and most of my tubes for it)
*I've thought about keeping this as a portable USB DAC for an office job I may or may not ever have some day, but I could just as easily listen to music off my iPod with the HP-P1, so I it doesn't seem worthwhile. I still think the 801 has some sonic perks over the HP-P1 and CLAS but they're not worth maintaining another portable library for.
I have some fancy cables I should probably get rid of too, but... meh, I like their ergonomics more.
