Sounds like a nice deal. I've honestly never heard a D/S DAC that sounds like you're describing, but I'd love to. Partly why I went over to NOS. Makes me curious about the ECD-1 and maybe ECD-2 as well though I'll probably stick with my Onyx By the way, did the price on that dozen Tung Sol 12SL7 listing go up? I thought it was under $200 before, but now it's $275? PM'd you a few days ago if you still wanna go in on those. Might not be worth it anymore unless they're willing to go lower?
