so that said, I am VERY much looking forward to getting an sr71B asap... thena fter that I need to balance my w1000x to be used balanced out of the sr71b :3
i have both the ibasso pb2 and the sr-71b and they both have their points i agree with the gains, it sucks having to go inside to swap out the jumpers to adjust gain.
but with the pb2 you can change the opamps and buffers, this gives you alot of options for how the amplifier sounds the pb2 is extremely powerful also. just like the 71b.

I already have SR71b but if Intruder DAC is as good as CLAS then I can ditch SR71b.
like i said many times, i dont think that the intruder is as good as the sr71b. mearly from a prospect of the fact that the intruder is 700.00 and the 71b is 650.00 i just cant see the amp section being as good as the 71b and then incorperate a dac for 50.00 more?
in my opinion the dac portion isnt as good as the clas esp the -db
the new 71b's come with the same gains as the intruder, and the older 71b's can be upgraded to have the same gains as the intruder also.
are you thinking of the new clas or older clas? i prefer the older clas because of the wolfson chip, the newer ones come with the akm chip much like the hpp1 not the same but still that AKM sound
