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.

OT..   What's your next DAC?  Got a chance to hear the Lampi G4 L4 this weekend - MAN I tell you.. I would like to have side by side with the ARM.

 

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.

Those HD800's look nice. Is that similar to how the HE6 is?

Cool. What are you running those Senns from now? I know you're waiting on another GSX but man-get an EC 2a3 soon and hear them for real. ;)

Are you shooting to RAW?  The d5200 does not shoot to jpeg?

Well he's got a couple of options. The 445 for those who like 45 tubes. A few people feel the 2a3s are better though for the HD800 (preferences of course)-plus the 2a3s have roughly twice the power which is a consideration if running speakers/HE6. They are both a slight trickle-down of the Leviathan-so reading up on that may help you decide. I think Craig's still out of town last I heard.
