Should I buy this or should I spend an extra $130 and get the Monoprice version 5 months before this one ships?

That's up to you really.
Note the Monoprice unite includes a AKM AK4493 DAC this Massdrop unite is just an AMP (no DAC).
Also the Massdrop unite seems to be more powerful. It hard to tell as the Monoprice doesn't have detailed specs. only stating " 2x1500mW of high-powered amplification ", with no indication of into how many ohms or single ended vs balanced. The Massdrop unite seems to be the more powerful AMP.
Do you need a DAC? Would the extra power benefit you? How much patience do you have? 😉

Thanks for your input, although it's information I already knew. I cancelled my drop. The ship date is frankly too far away. I could die between now and then, who knows. Who knows if I'd be even living in the same apartment, or state for that matter. I'll probably get the CTH as my amp and call it a day.

They keep moving back the release date on that. It was originally going to come out in March... then April... now the end of May. I think THX didn't want it to steal the glory of this amp.
It doesn't seem like you'll be getting that one any time soon either...
