Only the idea, not the cash. Actually I have to give credit to John as well. You get
the most credit though for helping make my wallet lighter between the two amps. :)
The Primavara SAGA, I feel too guilty about.

But now, we need you to work Joe over. We need the Big Guy!

seems it still needs significant EQing
Seems to be the case, though I’m happy to see Audeze release a new headphone. I’m still outrageously happy with my Abyss but of course I’d be curious to listen to the Audeze at some point. For now I’m just addicted to the ability to make minor adjustments on the fly with the Abyss as I’m listening.

Wish it was done, something from Woo Audio.
We're close. Working on the back side, then fine tuning, and we're ready to rock and roll.

New flagship SS amp released by Burson:

https://www.bursonaudio.com/products/soloist-3x-grand-tourer/

Head-fi thread:
https://www.head-fi.org/threads/bur...er-head-amp-pre-amp-w-sub-out-10w-xlr.959796/

I own the Soloist 3XP and it's been a solid pairing with 1266 Phi TC. Is it end game, no but solid performance for the price. In the GT they are doubling the power, improving cross channel isolation / performance, and improving their op amps/cooling/volume control over XP.

They also are introducing the sub-out as a use case for headphone listeners which will be interesting for Susvara/TC owners. I've heard of people doing this with Raal sr1a but not on our side. Anyway an interesting choices to compare with the other recent releases (Volot, Ferrum Oor+Hypsos, Upcoming Holo Audio flagship hp amp).

1266 is too heavy for my neck.

Diana Phi is for me the best headphone in the world, best comfort and I can wear it the whole day without pain - day to day.
So I hope for a closed Diana :raised_hands::raised_hands::raised_hands:
