I'd buy from his firm now in its current state. But I don't have much reason to because I haven't liked the build entirely (cables mostly) and now that I've had experience with his systems (and the concept of customizable sound in general), I've come to the conclusion that I likely won't bother with it any more. With the TAE that I've tried, I've come to the conclusion that I'd find the sound I liked in there, then I'd just stick with it so I there wasn't much point to it for me. I figured I'd just get something that sounds like I was want and was designed to sound as such. No knock on IMR's audio fidelity, but I likely wouldn't buy any more wares that are tunable sound, whether made by IMR or anyone else.
