One can only imagine just how close you were to said naked profits to hear them whispering. Golden ears indeed  :wink:
 
Edit: I did pull April 20 out of thin air, only to realise its the birth date of one of the most reviled figures of the 20th century. And a fellow Arian (Mar 21-Apr 21), sadly. Weird how our minds fixate on things like that.

That's over $300 that could have went towards the Yggy fund

Nope, it was the balanced unit that was "pickup only" in NY.  Shipping was a chore and not cheap, but it should be worth it.
 
I picked up a Gustard U12 transport to use for the vintage DAC's, and I'll be using the amp section of my NFB-28 until the Cavalli Liquid Carbon goes into production.

I had my eye on that one, too, but since the Basic II came out a few years before the Progeny, I wasn't sure if it had the "mega-electric-burrito" filter Mike mentioned. You'll have to let us know how it sounds!

It has two of them and two DAC chips.
The Progeny has one of each.
They should be quite similar. Our Basics might edge out the Progeny somewhat. We shall see :)
Should get mine early next week!
