Awesomeness!!!
Really hope we can demo them at an upcoming headphone meet

You'll have to be quick before they get packed up...

Schiit included a Christmas present... ordered sans DAC and/or phono.  It arrived with the balanced DAC fitted, and it's actually pretty damned good ;D

Tried it as Pre?
Balanced mode on LCD3's?

Ask for an extra 500mm longer than you think you will need ... you will thank me later :)

Received my cables from Hi-Phibian this morning.  Great workmanship and very reasonably priced.

What do you need mini XLR's for?  Selling this to Brent too?

I am taking note and will in future specify to folks that the length is measured from can connector to
Amp connector not from the split to the amp connector.  I think that's where the "shorter than thought" may come from as folks probably measure distance from chest to amp.

Anymore listening impressions on the Jotty? I'm getting cold feet about getting one as the feedback I keep seeing from headphone meets is becoming a bit more frank after the initial hype is starting to die down a bit.
