    Funny you should mention that. I have an AK380 here and I find it unlistenable after having used the Hugo 2. I still use my Utopias with the Hugo 2 when I'm away from my main system. I think you have to put my comments in context: I've only experienced the Utopias on two amps which I felt really got the most out of them, and the other was the now never to be produced Liquid Tungsten. Things are really at the point now that $2k DACs and $4k headphones are so incredibly capable that you really have to go pretty crazy far to get the most out of either of them.

    The Liquid Tungsten was something special indeed with not just the Utopias but the HD800s and pretty much any headphone I tried with it. Too bad it'll never see the light of day.
