I'm awaiting a custom PPA delivered. I have a great MINT and an excellent Headsave MiniMe.

I DO NOT NEED A SUPERDUAL.

Convince me not to buy it. PLEASE.

well xin has insane development cycles; anything you buy is sure to be outdated soon. also with an amp that small you could easily lose it. and maybe it's a lot of money for something that small. and what if the battery goes bad?

but trying to get you not to buy it would go against the spirit of this place, would it not... so why not go ahead and try it and see how it is. after all, we could do with another review

Wow 4 posts and he's got this place's number!


Stark23x,

Do you feel like the MINT or MiniMe are falling short performance wise? I think you might get more bang for the buck if you were investing in something higher end to diversify more. Maybe a nice PPX3 to balance out your solid-state amp?

If it helps your decision, I'm sure the ladies would like an amp that doesn't look like a plastic toy. Besides, who cares that it sounds like heaven if it looks cheap?
I'm placing my order for some Bose speakers today!

Well if you don't need a superdual, I guess the answer is clear: go get yourself a portable Larocco PR or SR-71.

If you buy it you'll be beaten severely by ballbat wielding ninjas.

But an empty wallet will balance perfectly against an empty bank account, a full bank account would not, which is sort of the basic principle this site runs on.
Oh and this site is very wallet friendly, it gets them lots of use!

Now if that PPA would just get here as well...

This place is the DEVIL'S WORK.
