Thank you for sharing a very valuable info with us. You said that "With the Amp, the dynamic and spacious sound is back...close to what I get from the VC with my Desktop EC445 amp". Can you specify how "close" please? I mean "just closer" or "close enough" to the full potential of Verite headphones performance (that you get from Eddie Current 445)? Can I just take it to the bank and spend $3500 for SP1000Amp + Verite now without hearing/trying it myself first?
