The headphone amp will drive 16ohms @ 6watt - enough to drive super high efficiency speakers !   :drool:

Not to mention 135dB A-weighted noise-floor . Like your background pitch black ?

Much anticipation surrounds the HPA4 - it will have to be spectacular to satisfy the ravening hordes.
And at the price it should be... :thinking:
