    I have been using a RudiStor RPX-100 for about 8 years and been very happy with it. I'm wondering why RudiStor products never seem to be discussed here on head-fi ?

    It should be with me in about 3 weeks time, Can't wait. I hope it will be a significant step up/away from my EarMax AE amp and release the true potential of the L3000. Once my wallet recovers from the shock I intend to have AKzip recable my L3000 to balanced and I will also need to buy some...
