Jealous! By the time I discovered this dac/amp it was no longer in production. Glad to hear you are enjoying it!

How do you like the Klipsch amp?

I definitely enjoy it! I'd give more detail than that, but I went from a little Fiio E10k to this thing, so I don't have much reference to other premium amp/dac combos. It was definitely a big step up from the E10k, which given its like 5x the price we would hope so haha. Most reviews I've read look favorably on it, though they are harder to find than I'd have expected. I really like the number of inputs options and I wanted a combo Dac-amp instead of two units so it fit my needs well. I really like the sound and the build quality is absolutely top notch. Love the aesthetic (as you can see with the matching stand). I snagged it at $375 from an open box sale, at which I think it's an incredible value; as that price put it under a THX AAA 789 ($400 at the time) while incorporating a DAC. At full MSRP - $500 and the 789 being only $299 now, I think you've got a ton of options, so that makes it a tougher choice. It's driven everything I've owned very well, never seems to struggle and can get insanely loud if desired (protect your eardrums folks). Things I've used it with: Hifiman Arya, Senn 6XX, Beyer DT177x, B&O H6, B&W P7. all sounded good, with things like the Arya and 6XX benefiting the most; definitely felt the DT177x also benefited well from more power too despite the GO moniker.
