    You mentioned Pass Labs so I thought I would link to this

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/luxman-p-750u-headphone-amp-drool-worthy/

    I'm having a demo this upcoming week.

    FYI, and IMHO, I heard the Nimbus at CanJam fronting a Chord TT2. The system didn't do much for me. In the same room was the new HeadAmp GSX Mini fronted by the new Brooklyn Bridge DAC. Significantly more impressed with that setup.

    I have had the GSX-mk2 for a little over a month now....it is not bright in my chain and definitely not bright with my ZMF cans.
    I suppose it will depend on the rest of your chain, but I would call the amp neutral with a really nice low end.

    Yeah I wouldn't be worried if it was just zmf but my main can us hd800S

    I have heard many praise its low end capability. Some say it is the tightest bass they have heard.

    How will would the gsx mini be able to push 300ohm headphones .

    Should be no problem and sound great. 300 ohm headphones arent that difficult to drive with the GSX-mini specifications.

    Hi, we're still waiting for the red and silver front panels to show up, so pics of those should be available within a few weeks. I see you did notice all the pics of the other new colors which have been posted to the site. The polished red and silver should look extremely similar to the existing pics for those colors on the GS-X mk2.

    Only thing Im waiting for now is impressions of sound signature. I bought a pavane and looking for an amp to pair with it for desk use at home. Hd800S and zmf aeolus hopefully sound good

    I as well. I would expect the reviews to be stellar. Luxman headphone new amp is in the mix but $4,5000!? The pics inside show Lux is over stuffed plus it’s manufactured in Japan and sold through a dealer so what would it be selling for? DAC’s get all these reviews and are picked apart but amps much of the time ignored. Mistake

    I have the Luxman being delivered on Thursday for a home demo. I was told I could keep it for a few days. It will be slotted into my two channel system so I can use those sources.

    * not $4500 - $4995!

    Thanks for the update.

    I almost wish that there were not so many color options. I am torn between the satin grey (although it looks slightly purple on my screen), the red and the blue.

    Any chance that you will come out with a satin black or satin red instead of the polished versions?

    Best-
