Well...

I hate to impede on Joel's individuality, but I saw it and couldn't pass it up...

http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f42/fs...ne-amp-319439/

Currently working out a payment plan with the seller. Was going to pick up a LD MKIV SE, and this is only ~$25 more once you count in shipping, and he agreed to let me pay it off in a couple chunks.

Now, to sell my Headfive.

Lol, with the way he wants to start spending, don't count on that for too long.

I hear you're looking in the $500-ish amp area yourself, Tyler.

Looking is the operative word at this juncture. So far I haven't purchased anything.

@Soloz re: bragging: oh. go ahead mister. Haven't heard the amp he's getting but your most likely on point.

@Namrac: Feed it a good source and I think you'll like it. I'm loving mine, that's for sure. The "blackground" is eerie.

Jacob - Just messaged you, don't worry about rushing to ship it. Take your time, and have fun on your trip .

Sean - Yay! Glad to see that you got hold of one after much deliberation and going back and forth.

Tyler - Get on the ball working-man. I thought you had your priorities straight; it goes headphone crap > food > more food > rent.

Joel - I envy your source a little bit. I just dunno if I can push my paychecks any further. I really want a CIA VDA2, but another easy half-grand makes my head asplode.

Cheers everyone.

Buddy, I haven't forgotten you. I've just had way too much going on the last couple weeks. I have a few other packages to try and get out in the next (day or week), One for Joel as well.

btw, I did sit down to give a good critical listen to the MPX3 on Sunday before I ship it out. For anyone who doesn't yet know, I sold it to Brian, but he agreed to let me hold onto it a little longer because I'm supposed to be receiving shipment of a brand new amp to the scene that should be very exciting to OCN members. The price is low enough that many headphone club members would be willing and/or able to pick one up, yet it is from a company that is known for delivering absolute bargains that can compete with items costing 2-3x their price point. The amp will be released later this summer and the unit I am supposed to get is currently in Canada for a couple last minute things before it heads my way.
Anyway, I listened to the MPX3 for a couple hours and only got part way through all the tracks I wanted to listen to before a storm came up that was loud enough to disturb my listening.

Setup I was listening to:
Power:
Monster HTS 5100MKII
Source:
Music Hall CD25 with Partsconnexion 1+ mods (burson discrete op-amps on order)
Amp:
SinglePower MPX3 SLAM (now owned by Aura)
Headphones:
Sennheiser HD580 w/ HD600 grills
Grado SR225
Cables:
Power: Signal Cable Digital, One I've been experimenting with, stock
IC: SA Reference
Headphone: SA Sennheiser Cardas
Isolation:
isolation pads under all components, amp sitting on bamboo board, on top of isolation pads.

if I had to sum the experience up in one sentence...

"Why the heck did I sell this amp?"
I sold it due to not feeling justified in having such an expensive amp that hardly gets used anymore... yet, I love the amp and even the short time spent every so often just maybe was worth it. Regardless I can rest easier knowing it'll go to a good home where it will be much appreciated!

And just to add one little note, you guys must understand how generous and flexible Jacob has been during this transaction. I was at college when Jacob decided to put the SP up for sale in April, and I wanted it badly. I wouldn't be able to pay the full asking price in one swing because I only work during the summer, so Jacob agreed to let me pay it off in different installments over 2 months. If it wasn't for this guy, it would be nigh-impossible to add an MPX3 to my rig.

Just thought you all should know about this, because it truly reflects Jacob's character as a seller and as a person. Thanks again bro.
