That's gorgeous Prep! That the Colorware gloss black? I wish I could see it next to Maxvla's matte to see which I prefer. Been thinking about going that route...

Thanks D,

 

Yup the Gloss black.  Maxvla and Greed both have the Matte Black..  Greeds has his pair at SAA getting some major work done..  Can't wait for his impressions..

Is he getting the full SAA mod done to his? Would be interested in hearing his impressions too-thanks.

Here's a quick review on the dac:

And here's a little bit on the Mini 218 IA amp:

They look really cool. Especially the tube dac, don't see many of those. Feel free to give us some impressions :)

Very nice!  I can see finger prints on the cup outer rings!

Also, does it sound "darker" now?  ;)

I have to clean up first.  I don't have a head amp at the moment.  Only speaker amps.  What camera did you get.  Why you have to shrink them down.

I bought them brand new from CW.  It cost me the MSRP of $1.5K.  Now I think they are taking used pairs in for re paint jobs.  You have to check with them though.  I don't know what that would cost.

I refuse to talk about dacs until I get more money lol. I'm still absolutely loving the Eximus after all these years honestly-it just does it for me with the Senns. My next jump will definitely bein the 5-8K range-probably with the Overdrive SE at the forefront. I fully intend on getting the Yggdrasil the day it comes out though as that should offer some huge value I'd imagine.
