    Those will go very fast. It's good that you're making them available since so many people have been unable to snag a pair of these headphones.

    I will again recommend trying a burning in CD. If you want to borrow mine I could send it to you but you must promise to send it back in a month or so. Let me know.

    So many have been sold that occasionally they come up for sale second hand.

    I’ve heard that it’s a great preamp. I’ve never tried it as a preamp.

    The Verite Closed sound absolutely fabulous through the MicroZOTL 2, in my humble opinion.

    MICROZOTL2 Tube Headphone Amp and preamp: a breakthrough device

    That's good news. Also keep in mind that the unit I'm so impressed by is one of the very first they released to consumers, with serial number 0007. It has the original circuit configuration and had the original switching power supply. I've never had the unit itself upgraded, because it already...

    Isn't it nice when an audio product actually lives up to and even surpasses your expectations--even when those expectations were exceedingly high? That's what happened with me, as I posted here.

    Source: Either the USB output of my Lenovo computer or a Project CD Box S player. The CD player has an upgraded power supply. DAC: Arcam irDAC with a recently upgraded power supply. Equalizer: Parasound R/EQ 150, which is almost always on bypass (i.e. not used); I had it modified/upgraded to...

    I'd consider ZMF's cables. I love mine. I'm not sure why more isn't said about them on this thread.

    I'm thinking about the Z10 E ....down the road (like probably over a year from now). So far have been unable to justify the huge price difference, so your post is actually quite helpful. I'd get the Z10 E only if I planned to also get the hard to drive Abyss TC as my open backed headphone and I...

    I own the MicroZOTL 2 by Linear Tube Audio. It sounds fantastic with my desert ironwood VC. After about 5 years I finally upgraded the power supply from the switching power supply to the linear power supply, but felt no need to do so; I haven't done any A-B comparisons but I think it's...

    Have you heard the Verite Closed (VC) for yourself? If not, then this is the very first thing you should try to do. As you said yourself, there's no substitute for real world experience. I personally think they're absolutely phenomenal, and represent a triumph of design, engineering, quality...

    MICROZOTL2 Tube Headphone Amp and preamp: a breakthrough device

    Sorry I'm late for this. I have the MicroZOTL 2 with its original switching power supply. Haven't even bothered to upgrade the power supply after purchase of unit serial number 0007 in 2015. I absolutely positively love it with the Verite Closed. I've commented extensively about it on the VC thread.

    You are absolutely, positively NOT alone! There are so many other posts that also cogently address various aspects of the this person's misguided harangue. Wabi sabi; the remarkable and uplifting story of Zach and Bevin's well-deserved success; and others illustrate this point wonderfully. I...

    That's interesting. I've never heard the HE-1000se, but I've owned the HE-1000 (original version) since 2015. After doing comparative listening, I concluded that the VC has even more detail than the HE-1000 (original version). I posted a brief comparison earlier in this thread. I was surprised...

    People talk about various tube amplifiers with the VC. Knowing what great products Zach makes, I'm sure that the Pendant is awesome and would love to hear it some time with the VC. What I don't understand is why I seem to be the only person touting the virtues of the MicroZOTL 2 with these...

    Are you still planning to get a ZMF Pendant? If so, I’d be very interested in hearing your sonic impressions given the quality of what you’ve posted so far about the VC.

    When I did an an A-B comparison between the Verite Closed (VC) and the HiFiMAN HE1000 (version one), I noticed an ever so subtle, intermittent but sometimes present stridency in the high end of the VC when compared to the HE1000. I hadn't noticed it prior to doing that comparison. I ran the...

    How WONDERFUL!!! Women have better hearing than men do. So presumably she's listened to the VC and decided it's essentially perfect, correct?

    I did the same thing (blind purchase of the VC) and feel the exact same way: couldn't be happier. It's a nice place to be, isn't it?

    Well, this may not be in the same league as Chord gear, but the VC sound awesome (essentially perfect for headphones, to my ears anyway) through my Arcam irDAC. But I think that's probably more a function of the VC than the DAC. Nevertheless, it is regarded as good DAC. As a default, "safe"...
