I hope I’m the first to post this. Just as a courtesy for those of you who can afford it (and because I'm curious), I found this in Mix magazine:
The Grace Design model 901 reference headphone amplifier. It's a recording studio headamp that accepts both analog and digital inputs (up to 24/96). If it sounds good to Bob Ludwig, could be O.K. to me. At $1495.00, is way less expensive than top headamps that do just amplification. It makes me thing that some companies are taking advantage of our beautiful obsession…Rich head-fiers, please, buy one and write a review. If you don’t like it I can help you crashing the thing. But let me have it for some years at home to hate it just like you (or maybe more). More years, I mean…Or more hate if you prefer.

O.K. Here's the link. Don't hit me!

Wish I could see a top view of it...otherwise from the angles I see of it, it looks kinda cheaply built especially that volume knob.

On the other hand, if we round it up to $1.50, than the build quality makes more sense.

The poll seems one-sided.

Do you like to eat bull testicles? (hey, it was on Fear Factor once

)
Choices: YES or VERY MUCH

My guess is that Venezuela, like Denmark, has the opposite use of "," and "." in numbers...

$1.000 would be a thousand dollars to me, while $1,000 would be a silly way of writing $1...

Thing is, it's "$1.495" in the title, but it's "$1495.00" in the first post. So if your system was used, that second number translates to almost fifteen thousand dollars. Not that it really matters... we get the point.

I corrected the number. My keyboard is in Spanish, that's why.
But you now what's my point. I know HeadRoom is loaning amps for free and you don't want to have problems with them, but, please, compare to a any headamp of the same price or double this and seems not fair, IF THIS SOUNDS GREAT of course.

And YES the poll is one sided, 2.0.0.0. IQ guy, and you can choose all the options at once!!! HAHAHA

. Headamp companies are one sided too, they ALL charge too much. AND, by the way, you have the JMT side...
