|Irons too bad you can't keep the 1212M long to see how it is stock after breakin. It would be good to know it's stock performance for those who can't mod.
Well... considering Justin's (Headamp.com) reputation for taking a long time to deliver amps, Iron will probably be keeping my EMU for quite a while, hehe.
So I think he'll have plenty of time to RMAA, compare, test, and listen to his heart's content.
Oh yeah, and then he should go out and buy this card (1212M)
***What I REALLY wanna see now is the 1212M versus the 1820M.. I mean i'm quite happy with this card... but a BETTER version of the same card? Kick@$$
Although, as most things I dunno if the increase in quality would justify the extra 300$. Hmm...
I mean part of what makes the 1212M so friggin great is it's good for WDM and Audiophile-grade audio, all for only 200$, and it competes with more expensive cards that ONLY do Pro Audio (i.e. RME PAD)... if you raise the pricetage to 500 it's like raising the Perreaux's price to 500/600... the amp is still the same, but now it has more contenders, yknow?
In any case, i'd like to hear your thoughts on this Lan, because if the potential for modding is as wide as you say, maybe the 1820M really is worth a shot
