It's a big roll of the dice - I'm just hoping that I don't forget that I paid for it. Against my better judgment, I got the XD128 with the IEM tweak (that should just be standard, from the get-go).
This will come in slightly north of $1k...if it competes with the AK240s and Ms of the world, I'll be more than happy. Back to a long, long holding pattern with my J3...I heard the AK100II
recently and was not at all blown away by the sound (though it is dead sexy). I was kind of thinking that I should wait to see how the X7 turns out, but I think these guys will make good
on this thing in the end. LFF heard a prototype of the Wave and basically said it knocked his socks off, so there is reason to have optimism in my book.
