I know zach works hard to bring a best product to a market. And I surely have no doubt that Auteur will sound great to my ears. But it is 1.6k, which is 0.4k more than clear (taking account its street price). I wish I have it, but I already spent a few grands over past a few years buying hd800s, ether, and hugo. And new products are keep coming to a market in a pretty fast pace these days. One day, I will spend over 2k after some dust settled down. But for now, I hope I can stay under 1k and saving some money. Thanks anyway for recommendation.
