I haven't been a party to the flavor of the month club in a while and I have this weird thing about liking to try out portable amps. Listened for about 30 minutes with my Miracles through my CLAS. I haven't given it near enough time to make any real comments and haven't even burned it in yet. However, if what I am hearing so far is any indication then you guys are right and it is in fact excellent...well with one pair of IEMs and little to no sleep anyway. I haven't heard any absence of base like some mentioned experiencing prior to burn in. Perhaps I will get more as I go along but I certainly don't need it.
I will comment on the cosmetics simply because it doesn't take a lot of time to form a solid opinion about those. The light is very bright, but that doesn't bother me...rather cool actually. The housing is smaller than I expected it to be. No idea why I thought it would be bigger given that most of the pictures are taken with customs. I like the housing quite a bit, it isn't up to the standards of my Continental but it is still nice. The box is nice. I personally could care less about packaging, but I have noticed that many here do so I thought I would mention it. It looked very nice up until I put it in the trash(I really didn't but I probably will). Space is limited. I really like the included mini-mini; it looks very high class and well made. Even though I usually stick to right angle connectors I can't see not using this little cord in the future. The power/USB connector is possibly the cheapest one I have ever seen. I have to wiggle mine around just right to get it to charge. I must remember, sometime tomorrow, to use a normal run of the mill USB cord to make sure it is in fact the cable and not the amp portion that is loose. Given the cheapness of the cord and the niceness of the amp I am going out on a limb for now and assuming it is the cord. I really don't care about the cord and wouldn't have cared if they hadn't included one, but again I know someone else might.
Can't wait to have time to listen to music and give some more solid feedback on the sound. I really want to contribute a little here since, again you guys where right, Gavin is very nice and so far the little amp gives the impression that it performs above its' price point.
