    @justin w. How is the Diana phi? I've not heard that one.

    I'm not Justin obviously, but the Diana Phi are spectacular! I would say that they are between the Diana V2 and Phi TC. They are likely the best small sized / portable-ish headphones I've heard. I have the Diana V2 and Phi TC here and they both pair so very well with the GS-X mini!

    I can't enjoy my Empyrean after listening to the Diana V2. The Empyrean sound so veiled now even on the GS-X mini. I'm ready to sell the Empyrean and buy the Phi TC. I love the lively sound of the Diana V2. Meze only has bass going for it right now and nice treble. I guess the Empyrean sounds dark to me.

    edit: I swapped the pads back to leather on the Empyreans and it's more enjoyable but the Diana still more lively.

    Has anyone had a chance to compare this to Questyle CMA600i -- also known to be a very transparent and powerful balanced amp as well. Wondering if I should upgrade...
  5. Hi Rez
    Just passed 4 months since pre-order. Any updates on when "soon" might happen?

    I ordered a green one last week and after reading through this thread in its entirety, I have a feeling it's going to be substantially longer of a wait than the product page's quoted "about 3 weeks" :frowning2:

    It should not be, we're getting the largest batch yet of circuit boards (all we are waiting for) and the enclosures are sitting here waiting for the boards to go in

    I expect we'll have them next week

    the only thing we are still waiting on is blue polished panels as we had some issues with that. Red polished panels are here (see the pic in my post about a week ago) and so if you ordered that we'll be sending the invoice soon

    Hi @justin w. How did you like the ACInfinity fan setup for the GSX-mini?

    When will the black matte option show up on your site and when will the satin red option show up? I also would like to see a pic of this red option soon.

    Just wanted to share I’ve started utilizing the GS-X mini as a preamp. I’ve added a Goldpoint switcher into my setup which allows me to tether my turntable & CD player to the GS-X mini via (2) XLR inputs which then run into the balanced input on my main rig amp. The GS-X is a phenomenal pre-amp. I’m using blue jean XLR cables. Maybe it’s a placebo effect...sounds wonderful...so...I’ll still take it! I now have both benefits of owning this HP amp. Those of you waiting; frustrating...but you’ll be justly rewarded when you get it in hand. Justin does awesome work.
