my wallet thanks you!

You may like them, I know of several people who do. But for me there's something that just felt... off. I don't know what it is because I didn't spend time trying to figure out what it was. Definitely demo a pair before buying if you can.

indeed, apologies for my step in that direction.

 

back to LiqCarb:

 

is their official announcement vehicle (specs, pre-orders, etc) going to be the Cavalli Facebook page?

hoping not, i refuse to partake in the FB.

The Cavalli Liquid Carbon really has me intrigued. I do not have a actual need for it but I always wanted a working mans Cavalli amp. And the fact this baby is fully balanced, is icing on the cake. I wonder how the Gungnir dac sounds with the Cavalli Carbon?

Sweet, I will end up ordering the Gungnir later this year. I already have saved up for the Yggdrasil, to go with my Rag, But the Cavalli Carbon will need its own dedicated amp lol. This hobby is most hazardous to my wallet lol.smily_headphones1.gif

Most everything is speculative.

 

Release is speculated as summertime...

Price is speculative between $500 and $700...

 

The good doctor did state he was planning something special for the people ordering the first run.

Which is why I'm going to jar a hug and mail him back the box. :p The only bad bit is the fact that spring just started, so summer is too many months away.

I'm kinda hoping he starts taking orders sooner, then later, even if shipping isn't until late summer or even fall.  I just want to get my place in line, and I'm not one of those people who gets angry for having to wait for something new.  I was a good boy waiting 9 months for my HiFi-M8.....

No headphones needed for me. Between this and another amp for me. Hope to get a chance to listen to both together down the road.

You just want to feel like you've got something coming, huh? :p

Crud, I'm gonna have to get a balanced cable for the HE-500 so I can see what the whole balanced audio thing is about. And get the full power of this amp so the HiFiMANs can behave as rambunxiously as they can.

The difference between balanced and SE with my HE-560 on my NFB-28 is not trivial.  (Yes, the balanced output has double the power, but the SE is still 4W, more than enough to drive the 560).  I recommend going balanced on the Hifiman's for sure.
