So, whata you think? Should I open it or send it back?

    I would open, just a dent. Probably packed in foam.

    You don't want it. How much is the postage to Arizona so I can dispose of it for you?

    ;)

    I'll add that I've opened worse than that with no problems. Holes in box, leakage evident, stuff hanging out...

    I had a small tiny box perforation. As luck would have it, it went directly to the aluminum face plate and nicked right next to the model/mfg. engraving. Damn Murphy’s law. Might as well open it and hold your breath. Cross your fingers. Prepare a burnt offering.

    Thanks guys. Also asked Donald and he said it should be OK. He should know since he packs the box. Hopefully pics later or tomorrow.

    OK, Here we go! My new premium headphone system. Source is Oppo BDP 83 or any thing else I feed the DAC. DAC is fully upgraded Schiit Yiggy and amps are Schiit Ragg and DNA Stratus.I need to do some cleanup and rearranging soon. I have a CD cabinet I ordered from our sponsor almost a year ago I need to assemble. DSC_2052.JPG DSC_2053.JPG DSC_2052.JPG DSC_2053.JPG

    I see that the engineer at DNA was involved with AURASOUND drivers.

    I have a number of their drivers...great stuff.

    Thanks for the offer, but I already have 4 pairs including the ones that came in it. Most are Vintage RCAs.I am not going to begin tube rolling until after Christmas. Besides, it sounds great right now. Played the Billy Gibbons Blues CD and the new Eric Church. Listened to Senn 800 S headphones. Just WOW. Tubes just have that ability to convey emotion that I have never heard from SS.
