    Prefer the black, but if you added the pattern from the other box in white, it would really pop.

    Detail person here, so call you out on images of the two boxes. Been fairer comparison to show black box as new looking (not one with creased lid vs brand-new looking logo covered box. Also photos of two boxes - the logo printed box is mostly non-reflective cardboard, whereas black cardboard boxes often are reflection magnet showing every imperfection of box (especially one with creases). Bet you are much more detailed oriented on building what goes inside!

    Proof positive that audiophiles are indeed anal by nature. I mean c'mon, a box is a friggin box. Big deal. What matters is the amp inside.

    But the faster we decide...the faster they can print them out and put said amp inside!!!

    That's why I said, the generic brown shipping box for me so that I can get the amp right away.

    I noticed today that the site says that the amps are now shipping and that the wait time is 4-6 weeks for new orders.

    Makes me wonder which box they chose!

    Hoping that we will all find out very soon :)

    I know I've asked this before. How would the GSX mini w/Chord Qutest vs. Chord Hugo 2 TT end up? I know there's a lot of TT reviews (Computer Audiophile) claiming its the deal. Somehow I'd believe the GSX would at least match its performance w/the Qutest. No clue.

    I would take Better amp over better dac anyday of the week.
    Dont ask Chord fanboys they are super biased.
    Average dac with great amp will sound full, dynamic and exciting.
    Great dac with poor amp will sound sterile, lifeless, boring.
    There is reason why amp is mentioned first when choosing demanding speakers, headphones.

    I would choose better dac over better amp. Don't matter how good the amp is, if feeding it crap then that is what the amp is going to pass on. Since the dac is upstream of the amp, should be common sense that the dac is of utmost importance.

    Chord does have a good amount of fanboys for sure. I've been lazy but am going to get a loner to check one out. I have the Wyred 4 Sound DAC2v2 SE and the Chord guys say a Qutest will blow it away. No clue but I'll try it.
