You make zero sense whatsoever.

So the Mono and Stereo review makes no sense either? He raved about Bruno's pre-amp.

I don't care about any review.  I asked about hearing them in my house like I did with my tour amps but then you have gone on your typical side track.  Perhaps you should re-read what I've posted and see if it makes more sense to you.

How much power is the MINT amp? I don't see any info on it.

Oh yeah? Well, Cherry amps haven't arrived to my house on a tour like the the two pairs of NCores did.

So have you heard the cherry amps in your system, or nor?

Obviously not - hence the reason I've asked to hear them in my system.

Why not pick up a pair through the current Kickstarter?  They are not expensive.  Thanks.

+1.

One thing about it, you never see any used ones for sale.

I'm not letting go of mine....

If one finds his or her bliss with a different set of amps, I am truly happy for them.  For me, it was the Maraschinos that clicked, that brought the musical chills.  I thought I'd have to part with big money to flirt with that sensation, till Tommy's first Kickstarter brought it home for a song. 

Next up, trying out the DAC DACs!

Still an absolute steal. The future owner(s) will simply not believe the price/performance ratio they have!

Correct me if I'm wrong but these are not just for a desktop computer set up but would also be ideal for a main system that didn't require a ton of watts.
Actually, with a DUAL 60V 1kW power supply upgrade (also available with discount), those same Desktop Maraschinos WILL put out some serious power!

If I did not have so many amps kicking around I would be very tempted to see what the fuss is about.

I know the feeling -- I'm putting together some systems for my neighbors from some of pieces, amps and speakers, that have been deposed here -- a way to keep the equipment making music, and I get the feeling the neighbors may just get hooked  :thumb:.

I have a pair of Maraschino's that are idle at the moment while I'm waiting for the 60v powers supply upgrade - if you want to demo them with the 48v power supply send me a PM and you can try them out....

That sounds quite generous!

We have 43 backers so far, and we're going for 100.  So, even a $1 pledge helps.  We also added a stretch goal for free S/PDIF cables with each DAC DAC.  That's at a certain total dollar amount (explained in "updates" section).

Just a bit more than 5 days left !!!!  MAJOR discounts on Cherry amps (several versions) for being a backer.

Here's the abbreviated link:

The video has been played nearly 2000 times, by the way, and we believe we set a new record for funding speed!

Count me in. I am anxious to hear whet the 30v power supplies do for SQ.

Just a touch over 2 days left!  Lots of goodies still available....

Please keep in mind that reward prices will not be available after the campaign is complete.  This is out of respect for those who contributed to the campaign while it was active.  After our last Kickstarter, we had a bunch of "I missed the Kickstarter, but can I get XYZ at the same price?".  Sorry, prices are going up after this, and some will go way up.

Thanks to all who have already joined us on this exciting endeavor.

Please help us spread the word and achieve our stretch goals (see the updates section for more information).  The abbreviated link again for convenience:

I'll be checking out the 30V power supplies as well -- I look forward to comparing notes. 

I hope others get in on this opportunity to try out what DAC has to offer before the end of the Kickstarter, as well.  My experience has paralleled yours, from reading what you have written.

30V Maraschinos and power supply "upgrades" ("across-grades"?, we had to call it something) aren't officially offered just yet.  Anyone else interested?  These are meant to drive lower power systems, high efficiency speakers, and daily listening of not-really-loud music.  Some performance figures are a bit better at medium levels compared to the higher voltage supplies....  Thanks.
