    Smile Quite possibly the greatest amp ever!

    What the hell is this? and the price???? I dunno guys, but it looks like a game-changer for sure!

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pleiades-Ele...item4d0c606b8b

    I think Coconaught Audio has some serious competition on it's hands.

    Caution: Headphones can damage hearing at high levels. Please make shure you attenuate your source signal adequately before sending to this headphone amplifier.

    At least they got the legal mumbo jumbo out of the way...

    What soured me on the deal was this:

    "This item has an extended handling time and a delivery estimate greater than 31 business days.".

    No way I'm waiting between June 8th and June 15th for delivery ! He must be shipping USPS.

    Someone here will buy it and discover that their carver tubes had been hiding some inner detail from them, which has now been laid bare - revealing timbral nuance nonpareil. The carver will henceforth be relegated to "entry level," and "a good starting point" status.

    I thought that was a given?



    Sorry John, I'm sure your monoblock tubes are amazing.
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Amazing is an "entry-level" word that barely begins to describe them.

    Actually, it is the Coconut Audio power cable scam. MIT cables actually work if you bother to try them. Whether they are worth the price is another issue.

    I'm still trying to figure out HOW that device can even work, power "anything". After all it NEEDS a PASSIVE Pre-amp and only consumes 7 watts?

    But it is suitable for Sennheiser 580s which have been OUT of production for quite some time? So where was this guy, in some TIME warp?

    Two tubes, and nothing else! RIGHT!

    Actually what is not said is that the tubes were fashioned from and extremely rare sand that is only found on MARS!

    Wait I have it. It's 39,000 in Chilean Pesos which have an exchange rate of 472.50 to 1 U.S. dollar so that the USD is only $82.54

    I just order mine. The seller want an extra $15.00 for express shipping after the money is received. He indicated he is selling the amp at cost and needs to make some sort of profit.
