I like it pretty well. Its main shortcoming is that the amp section lacks the power to drive hungry phones to their full potential. It can produce approximately enough volume for HD650s but the bass authority is lacking, hence my desire for a Crack. That bass-shy character is due to the headphone amp section and the cans being driven, not the DAC function, as I have hooked the Nano's analog outs to my loudspeaker rig and it had plenty of slam. I considered the more powerful Micro, but $180 was a much more appealing price point than $500 when my main goal was to see if I could get DSD playback working properly. I'm 1 for 2 in getting the iFi drivers to play nice with foobar. No issues on my desktop machine, and it worked fine for a while on my laptop for about 2 weeks before getting borked in a way that I haven't been able to figure out. I will try to get the DSD drivers running on a different laptop in time for the meet, or maybe running JRiver instead of foobar. I have successfully fed it DSD files played with the HibyMusic android app on my Galaxy S4 using an OTG cable, so that's pretty cool. Sound is very good, neutral across the frequency range, clear and very detailed but still quite musical. It should sound great once I'm running it into a proper amp (Crack).
now I want one to feed a speaker amp. S**t

Sounds good. I'm still on the fence about the Yggy.I love the transparency and dynamics of the Rag, but would still love to downsize my rig. If the Liquid Carbon comes close to the Rag, the Rag will probably go. If the Rag goes, then I'd like a small form factor DAC. This being head-fi, the more likely scenario is me getting the Yggy and a transportable DAC, and keeping both the Rag and the LC.
 
 
Truly, this is the way of Head-Fi.

Whereabouts are you staying, and where would you propose to meet up? I'd be interested in checking out the alpha primes.

I'm currently staying in a hotel in Anne Rundel (next to live casino). I'm not sure where we can meet, its not like a car show where we can meet out in the open.

Would be kinda nice to have an informal meet. I could be there by 7:30pm. I had once thought of buying the Alpha Prime - would be nice to hear how far the T50RP scales. Does the hotel have any kind of a conference area?

Hey guys have a few new updates on the meet for the 31st:
 
  1. The meet will be held in the Plaza III ballroom
  2. The meet is set for 10AM to 4PM
 
I've spoken to Gary and he's agreed to give head-fiers coming to the meet a special discounted rate for the show for the day.  When you buy tickets for the show, use the promo code "Amar sent me" (that's me) to get your ticket for only $10.  
 
Anyone that is going to be in the area early that would like to come help me organize tables and chairs is more than welcome, I am planning to be there by about 9AM to coordinate the room and make sure we have everything ready.  Let me know if you have any other questions about the meet, looking forward to seeing you all there.

No option on the site.  Have to purchase tickets at the booth in the morning and give them that phrase for the discount.
