Honestly, I do hope Massdrop steps up their game and puts a class-leading DAC into the matching enclosure. There are lots of combo amp/DACs on the market now, but there are only a limited number of stand-alone DACs (considered less bang-for-your-buck).
I have the Schiit Yggdrasil DAC feeding two quality headphone amps... but I am looking for another DAC to feed the Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid (CTH), Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Liquid Carbon X, and the Massdrop THX AAA 789 stack. I am strongly considering a BorderPatrol SE DAC, but I will wait a bit to see what Massdrop offers.
BTW - It would be nice if Massdrop offered a base version DAC in the matching enclosure, as well as an enhanced version with more expensive DAC chips/components for an additional charge.

Just received my LCX today and CTH is on the way. Is the THX better than the LCX ?

That is a good question... time will tell.

My CTH is scheduled for delivery today, with my LCX scheduled for tomorrow... so I will be listening soon too.

Well my LCX was transferred from FedEx to SmartPost today, but not delivered as scheduled (for Saturday March 3rd). It is now set for delivery by the USPS on Tuesday March 6th... but what is a few extra days after 6 months of waiting?
